I worked at Addison Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good for a quick buck if you can tolerate the working conditions.

Cons

As all temp agencies do, they will place you, collect the fee, and walk away. They do not care if you are happy in the position, and will not work with you again if you choose to leave.

Advice to Management

Listen to your candidates and show some support. The client is not always right!

    I worked at Addison Group full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single one except maybe the fact that somehow this company continues to grow and make money.

    Cons

    Favoritism is a big one. If you are able to kiss up to just the right people, you will go far in this company. You don't even have to work 40 hours a week to get full time pay and benefits if you're good enough at the kiss up game. They try to promote that they have a fair work/life balance, but that's not the case unless you are a top producer. There is often unethical and unprofessional dialogue within the office, often times about candidates waiting in the lobby to be seen by a recruiter. If you don't fit their "party hard" lifestyle, it's only a matter of time before you are dismissed from your job. Like a high school clique all over again. Often times, there is alcohol being consumed during business hours, which is just unsafe and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the heck up! Stop running this place like a fraternity or soroity where certain people will never be accepted, even though they may work harder than anyone else in the office. Also, you should hire one branch manager for every office, instead of each office having multiple managers for the different divisions. This would help prevent a lot of conflict of he said vs. she said.

    I have been working at Addison Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    when work is available they help you land it

    Cons

    It appears they would rather you consult then find you full time employment.
