    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Excel Partners as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and easily accessible. I have been placed at a top-tier company several times, plus - they actually listened when I gave my criteria as to what I was looking for in a job. Everyone in the office is nice and knowledgeable, and they have many options available regarding positions, both temp and perm.

    Cons

    The office is a bit difficult to get to if you have no car.

    I worked at Excel Partners for 23 years and was very successful! The CEO is a tremendous mentor and educator. He will teach you everything you need to know to succeed in the recruiting industry. The benefits are outstanding and if you work hard, there is flexibility to be had.

    Must have a sales mentality and willing to work hard and play hard!

    I have been working at Excel Partners as a contractor

    Pros

    I've been working as a contract worker for the last 4 years. Out of all the agencies in my area, Excel Partners has been the only agency that has come through for me. They've place me at great companies, with great people and a decent hourly pay. My consultant, Tara Kiniry works very hard finding assignments for me, and whenever I need to speak with her regarding anything related to my assignments, she's always available.

    Cons

    No complaints at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Electronic Time cards! :-)

    I have been working at Excel Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The firm is currently expanding, and the growth opportunities are endless (which is amazing). The firm was originally stationed in Stamford, CT, but has recently transitioned to Norwalk, CT. I've personally had the privilege of working at both locations, and couldn't be happier!

    Half the recruiters here, are young top college graduates looking to get experience in: recruiting, marketing, client service or account management. The other half of the recruiters (especially in the Accounting & Finance department) are from top hedge funds.

    If you want to work hard and grow with the firm, the possibilities are endless.

    Cons

    If you're just looking for that typical 9-5 full-time job, you probably won't last. People who come in with that attitude, don't last more than 4 months. Excel is a fast paced environment, where "learning on the fly" is essential. If you are not hungry or have an entrepreneur type personality, you will probably not last.

    Advice to Management

    Management is one of the main reasons why I chose Excel. Management is not only extremely down to earth but very friendly. My manager is both my friend and mentor.

    I have been working at Excel Partners (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Your contact with Excel Partners is very invested in helping you get the position you are looking for: they will help prepare you as well as they can for the interview and do their best to make sure you succeed.

    Keep in contact with your recruiter: much of the work handled tends to be temp-to-perm and they're someone who will be in your corner when its time to move on to another position.

    Cons

    None cons to complain about.
    Could be closer to where I live I suppose?

    Advice to Management

    It would be wonderful if there was a wider geographical coverage for positions.
