    "Great Opportunity for highly-motivated recruiters"

    Current Employee - Technical Recruiter 

    I have been working at Talentlab full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -interesting and challenging technical roles to work on -biz dev team does a great job connecting us with amazing partners to work with -lots of autonomy, very little micro-management as long as you're performing -driven by results, not metrics. -specialize in whatever vertical, tech stack you prefer

    Cons

    -lacking some protocols and systems for information exchange between business units opening the door for some administrative misses and communication slip ups. As we continue to grow, tighter processes will become a necessary evil.

    Advice to Management

    - while navigating our growth, keep the autonomy and results orientation in play rather than bogging down into metrics. Tighter processes don't have to lead to stunted freedom and creativity in getting the job done right.

    Pros

    - Within a couple of years, you can easily make 120k+ with a manageable workload and lots of work/life balance if you are decent at recruiting/headhunting - Great management that empowers you to create your style of recruitment and develop your own career goals - No stupid KPIs or endless performance discussions! - Crazy flexibility to work from home, set your working hours, and lot's of grace given for... homelife responsibilities - Fair targets that don't demotivate, but still challenge you to do your best - Mentorship is very good. They actually want to see you grow your skills and career, so they will provide opportunities for Account Management, BD or even team leadership

    Cons

    - Not the place for someone who needs a lot of micro-management, no one will plan your day for you etc, so if you are someone that needs that type of management, this environment would be overwhelming for you - Smaller company that doesn't have offices in every city, so you can't rely on a recognized brand to sell services, you need to be very good at driving new business - Only about one team lunch or... smaller event every quarter, not a lot of pub nights etc - No plans to grow the size of the company and hiring is very slow. They tend to be cautious with new hires, and only bring new people on if the market conditions make sense, and everyone on the current team has signed off

    Advice to Management

    - Be aware some policies of flexibility or working style will likely have to change as the company grows

    I have been working at Talentlab full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Small, well established, boutique firm. Lots of freedom, zero micro management. Great place for self-motivated people who don't need someone breathing down their neck, or constant hand holding. The team is supportive, good communication between the team, everyone knows whats going on with each others req's, but there is still a high degree of autonomy. Owners are great, professionally and very friendly and... welcoming from the start. I worked before in an environment with constant metrics, people watching over your shoulder, high turnover, competition between recruiters, etc and this place is the opposite. Small, tight knit team, established clients, knowledgeable about the Tech market, very comfortable work space.

    Cons

    If you need lots of support/training, micro management, probably not the place for you. It is for people focused in their career who can work autonomously.

    Advice to Management

    None
