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

Pros

-The people by far are the best reason to work at Softworld. Everyone is nice, smart, and always willing to help.
-Competitive base and commission plan that exceeds industry standards.
-Diverse set of clients from SMB to government contractors.
-Laptop, wireless headset, great software and infrastructure support with cutting-edge web-based ATS

Cons

-The hours. Employees are strongly encouraged to work nights and weekends regularly, which is typical of the IT staffing industry in general though. Just know what you're getting into if you want to earn $$$
-The sales people could work better with recruiters to "fight" for their candidates and push back against clients to better qualify requirements rather than just "taking an order."
-Too many meetings and time spent on administrative work (e.g., formatting resumes to perfection).
-Lots of micromanagement, too much metrics tracking and unrealistic individual goals pushed by upper management.

Advice to Management

Trust your senior recruiters to get the job done and don't look over their shoulders every second.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time

    Pros

    Management does great job of developing talent. Performance is rewarded and recognized. Flexible work environment. Management is not afraid to change things if it isn't working and not in the tank for recruiting or sales. Hold a facility clearance which allows quite a bit of government related work in addition to commercial sector- good balance.

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect, and the flaws here are common in this industry, and the focus is on production, but working their system and methodology

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to your people, never stop trying to improve.
