    I have been working at Macdonald & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love what we do and how we conduct the Recruitment Cycle.
    Having such a personal and indepth relationship with our clients and candidates allow us to do more than just fill a vacancy. I love what we stand for and our great reputation in the Industry. Having our Director as our Leader, is fantastic. She is such an inspiration and really motivates us. I like the system we work on - it makes the process smooth and quick (mostly)

    Cons

    I think that we are a bit under staffed - we need more bodies for our work load. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The glitches and slowness working on Citrix is super frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Can we have monthly incentives?
