    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Brand name projects allow good visibility into Fortune 500 companies
    -Excellent work/life balance
    -Good benefits
    -Many very capable team members and supervisors
    -Communication from execs is currently in process of improving and they know there are some weaknesses
    -Resource allocation/assistance is available if you do not have enough support
    -FS is a salary + bonus vs. base + commission (though lower than some other large name recruiting firms)
    -Team environment with strong upper management support

    Cons

    -Question of job stability when certain projects are pulled
    -Still working on communication from execs (see above)
    -Outdated sourcing efforts for many projects - recruiters could be given more technology and resources
    -Very little consistency with Mid-level Management's (project leaders specifically) expectations. Some deliverables are given very clearly, however, with some Mid-Level Managers it's like pulling teeth to get information about the project in order to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    -Look at all levels to promote from within and talk about open roles before hiring externally (though this is getting better with the weekly opportunity emails that are now coming out)
    -Behavioral/sensitivity training may help some of the project leaders to work well with all personalities on their own team, but would also give better client facing skills for some of the more abrasive leads.
