Negative Outlook

I worked at Ginger Finds as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

You'll jump into recruiting, have a lot of autonomy (from home or Ginger's cramped apartment), work on great roles at great brands with great people.

Cons

The owner will tell you what you want to hear (but not the truth) to your face, and
behind your back -- she's done it to her own family, her friends children, and to clients.

The agreed pay rates (to researchers and recruiters, interns -- French and US) is never met, and change based on whim and/or her personal spending habits (Paris jaunts, weeks on Cape Cod, Gucci, etc.)

You will never see the % promised for your candidates who got hired -- it's why no one can afford to stay long.

Her 'board' clearly isn't involved... their prominently displayed names wouldn't be misspelled. She got referrals and accounts from several and never paid them the % she promised.

The clients come and go (except for URBN, which drinks her kool aid for reasons THEY don't even understand) because she doesn't deliver, over-promises, and her work is inconsistent and typo-ridden.

Advice to Management

Say what you mean, mean what you say. And when you put it in writing, don't go back on your word. Cheating your friends, employees -- 17 year old students, former co-workers, tutors who help your children get into college, your cleaning lady, and they work from home housewives you claim "don't need the work," will come back to haunt you.... several lawsuits seem to be pending.

    I have been working at Ginger Finds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ginger is professional, savvy, well-versed in industry, and knows all the key people. Warm and enthusiastic, Ginger is willing to help and a great listener, but also a 'straight shooter' who is goal-focused and looks for solutions for her clients and tries to find the right fit. I love working with her and I would recommend anyone to Ginger Finds because she is one of the rare recruitment executives who actually cares about her clientele as opposed to simply seeing a #.

    Cons

    None that I can see.

    Advice to Management

    Work with Ginger. She is the best in the business and someone I feel comfortable trusting with my career, which is not something one should take lightly.
