I have been working at Elite Placement Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

-Ability to run your own desk and expand your book of business
-Strong sense of team, very cohesive group that works extremely well together
-Very high earning potential and mentors who help you take your billing to the next level
-Company invests in its employees; annual training seminars, friendly competitions with great prizes (cash too), summer/winter outings...etc.
-Fun, friendly atmosphere - they know how to work hard, and play hard.
-Established network of prime candidates and excellent clients makes the job of a recruiter that much "easier".

Cons

-The environment is fast-paced with deals happening every day, so only people who are quick learners, have a strong work ethic and a passion for the business will survive.

    I worked at Elite Placement Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are really nice who work there

    Cons

    I suggest thinking very carefully before becoming a recruiter at this firm, unless you are a junior, 20 something looking to spend a few years in a high volume, low pay environment. The firm's culture is a 'no investment made in employees' type of environment and you will be "cut" you if you don't close a deal in your first month. Chop shop/spaghetti against the wall style of business. Contingency recruiters are eating each other alive and this firm is basically right in there with them.

    Advice to Management

    Qualify your jobs better, provide training, streamline your efforts, cultivate a more open and engaging environment where employees are not afraid to give feedback or ask questions, better treatment of women

    This person actually worked for us for 5 weeks and not 5 years. She never worked in a contingency search firm and thus did not know what she needed to do in order to be successful. Unfortunately it... More

    Pros

    This is not applicable to my situation

    Cons

    I was seeking employment through the recruitment agency. I had to constantly follow up with the recruiter. I sent all the documents and never heard back from the recruiter despite numerous follow ups.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure if you only help people with a certain background.. it is possible that you do not want to deal with the older group. You might to reconsider that age group as well since they have years of exp. along with work ethics and loyalty.
