    I have been working at Employbridge full-time

    Pros

    super flexible with schedules, lots of opportunity, policies are up to date and reasonable

    Cons

    pay raise scale is a little wacky, .25 raise after 90 days, another .25 raise after 180 day, .50 raise after 1 yr and so on. basically only make 1.50 raise after 3 years with company.

    Advice to Management

    more incentives

    Pros

    Autonomy to run a full desk. Ability to grow as a Professional Recruiter. Best Leadership in the Industry.

    Cons

    Not the best work-life balance.
    Bonuses aren't paid out timely.
    Training is sub-par.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in on-boarding - create a mentor-ship program.
    Pay the Recruiters a Quarterly Bonus, based on billables for the quarter; Management receives quarterly bonuses for the recruiters' successes, so shouldn't the recruiters.

    Pros

    Family first core value is great. But you can't always take it. Some of the greatest people work there as well. There is also a lot of growth opportunity as there are several different departments within corporate and the field. It's a great staffing company for people who want to settle.

    Cons

    Bad managers. The amazing leaders put bad managers in place and never look back. The pay is not competitive, no matter how much they like to say it is. I'm paid in the lowest percentile of employees with similar titles. I brought it up and was pretty much threatened. So, there is that.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your lower employees. You may forget about them, but some of us are leaders waiting for the right opportunity. We can be suppressed when managers feel threatened or personally dislike us for whatever reason. Things are extremely clicky. And I say get in and stop that right now. Find your good employees and pull them out before they are gone.

    Pros

    autonomy to do what you need to do to get the job done. Smart, hard working and fun people to work with. manufacturing and logistics specialty is amazing and truly a differentiator. Most Area and Regional mgmt is good. Managers have your back and will help you to figure it out...whatever "it" might be that day.

    Cons

    They move at snail pace to get important things done. I've been a part of large mergers before and unfortunately the Select Staffing, EB merger was for me an example of how NOT to do it. They all seemed very indecisive about important things, which is not what you need in a leadership team. No review structure or chance for base increases.

    Advice to Management

    Better big picture planning and action plans, move quicker to get things done. Make a decision and be consistent and stay with it
