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

Pros

Ownership is open to new ideas and is always willing to go the extra mile for their employees, clients and candidates. They are a progressive organization that's strives to be the best partner with top notch companies in this area.

Cons

With any young company there are cons. They are growing and with that comes challenges but the overall leadership and culture of Rylem is headed in the right direction.

Advice to Management

My advice is to continue to grow, hire the right people and stand behind them. Give them the tools they need to help grow the company and build a bigger and better Rylem for clients and candidates.

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

    Pros

    -The location okay
    -There's a tiny handful of good Recruiters

    Cons

    -The owners are the most unprofessional liars who are churning and burning through their best people--because the best employees are smart enough to see right through the facade the owners try to put up about actually knowing how to run a business.

    -The managers, both recruiting and sourcing, are incompetent at their own roles and contribute to high turnover. They are bringing in a lot of inexperienced people to work for Rylem as they know they are impressionable and naive. They completely fail at training, so many of the inexperienced people have no clue what they're doing, making this a disadvantage enough not to work here.

    -The pay and benefits are below market --again this is why hiring inexperienced people is preferable to them.

    -They will tell you yourself that it's a stagnant place to work, so if you want career growth, go somewhere else. It's just a job, not a career.

    -The company is clearly cutting back, so the culture is just boring, no one is excited to be there. it's just a job.

    Advice to Management

    -Get real managers who know how to do their jobs better, not bad communicators who are clearly your puppets.

    -Don't have any part of the company, you're not good at managing people!

    -Pay better wages, give better benefits

    -Don't be so sketchy and think that no one notices.

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

    Pros

    3 of the recruiters are quite good. Not much besides that. There is a twenty word minimum for this section.

    Cons

    The owners are just plain horrible. Pay is well below market. They push an egregious fee schedule. Greed is number one driving force. Business built on churn and burn principal. Zero investment in employees. Smoke and mirror show with "free employee coffee" and mystical "boat day". Many better options for internal employees and contractors alike.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to a knowledgable, mature buyer. Take your money and run.

    Thank you for your review, and we will certainly work harder to provide an environment that is driven by greater investment in employees that will result in greater employee success.
