I worked at Kforce full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Kforce was a good experience for me. They found positions for me in the accounting and financial areas virtually as soon as I applied with them. I was with them for about three years and they always followed up with me during that time to make sure I was happy with the position and company that I was placed at. They also work with professionals rather than just throwing everyone up against a wall to see who sticks.

Cons

Unfortunately, they are now pretty much only serving the engineering and health care industries for financial services -- but that's not their fault because that's true of most financial "temp service" outfits. Those two industries are the ones looking for people, but only people that have done finance work in those industries. It seems that if you haven't worked in accounting for an engineering or health care firm, there is no room for you. Again, that's not Kforce's fault -- they can only fill positions with companies that are looking for people. :-) I guess this "cons" entry is for the employment situation -- not against Kforce.

    I worked at Kforce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Young/Middle Aged Professionals
    -Outgoing Personalities
    -Great after work happy hours, to vent some steam

    Cons

    -Never get commission until you reach a specific goal (which if you are doing temp-perm, with low paying jobs), just plan on not seeing anything for the next 2 years
    -People tag along with you on your new business meetings, to steal the business
    -Lots of turn over
    -New client development in other departments is not appreciated with compensation

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement probably kills your company.

    I worked at Kforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, competitive pay, acceptable benefits

    Cons

    Unrealistic working hours, poor management, singular focus (borderline obsession) with company metrics, constant comparison and competition with co-workers both locally and throughout the company, hours of cold-calling every day

    Advice to Management

    it would be difficult to make any changes without overhauling the culture from the top down. I think it is what it is at this point
