Some good people, opportunities for entry-level positions
Extremely poor management. Biz Dev is primarily cold-calling lists mined from LinkedIn. Existing clients and relationships are scarce. Rylem's product is staffing services which are delivered by a very junior team. Turnover is quite high primarily because employees learn that this is not a company with strong growth prospects unless one is starting from entry-level. If you're reading this it is because you are already working for Rylem, or you are about to turn down an offer. I cannot image anyone who would read through this list of reviews still choosing to work for this company.5Rylem Response9y
We are very sorry to see you go, and hear about your feedback this way. We wish there would have been an active exchange of thoughts during your employment at Rylem, to improve the situation and find a better way to work together. Turnover is generally high in Staffing and Recruiting. This industry is very fast-paced and people move on to new challenges at a heartbeat. “At nearly 300%, turnover in the staffing industry is perhaps the highest of any industry in the nation. In 2013, staffing employee turnover was 263%, down from 294% in 2012—setting a new record low, which had previously been 277% in 2010.” (source: https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2014/10/01/climb-continues/) Please find this article and study, it is very interesting and helpful in that matter. Recruiters at Rylem are doing their best to fill the roles the BDMs bring in to the business. I’m sure you’ve worked just as hard as we do, and yet haven’t found the success at Rylem you sought. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope you find a company and role that brings you happiness and a successful career!

I've been with Rylem 5 years and these are the highlights that have kept me here: Best culture I've experienced in a workplace, ability to own your own book of business and treating it like your own company, creativity to try different ideas is welcomed, direct access to the CEO so you don't have to jump through hoops to get things approved/ask questions/discuss ideas, a CEO that challenges you to push yourself in a motivating and positive way (I've grown as a BDM and as a person because of his management style), amazing commission structure!
Globally spread out team, challenging to have onsite team activities, but remote flexible work location options is a perk.

*Supportive Management Team *Creativity encouraged *Flexible remote set up *Great comp structure for commission
*Team is spread out all over, so much onsite collaboration, but having remote flexibility outweighs that.
