    I have been working at Special Counsel as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of work, long term projects, and overtime.

    Cons

    You can go through periods where you hear nothing. Projects can end abruptly. There is no growth potential.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with in my office for the most part but no real pros for the company overall.

    Cons

    Very corporate setting and mindset. Feel like you're just another number working there. Didn't feel like I received the training I needed to succeed as a recruiter nor did I really know what my goals were. Was told by management weekly to just "do better" with no real training on how.

    Advice to Management

    Training programs and clear goals and what they mean.
