    Pros

    -Excellent benefits (student loan reimbursement/health care/gym-reimbursement/$25/month credit for 5ks, etc./decent PTO)
    -Company culture is very family-oriented and supportive
    -Training is organized and structured as opposed to being thrown to the wolves
    -Management is very supportive in helping us succeed

    Cons

    None that I can think of the moment. It's sales, so compensation is based off how successful you choose to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at GDH Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good commission structure, nice reward trip if you can meet numbers, will take a chance on no or in-experienced recruiters and account managers (see cons though)

    Cons

    I enjoyed a fairly lucrative career at GDH but within the last year I had to make the decision to leave. To echo a previous reviewer, GDH has made a cultural shift to hire limited or no experience staffing "professionals". While this is commendable, it makes for a difficult working environment for those of us experienced and overall has had an impact on what WAS tremendous growth. While upper management might tout top 10% of all staffing companies, the naked truth is that they have stalled. It has been a goal of GDH since 2014 to crack the 100M mark, but has not been attained and actually, last year (2016) revenue fell. One reason for this is the shift to cost savings from hiring those with limited or no experience but a significant blame has to be laid at senior leadership. Though numbering over 200 employees leadership at the top cannot delegate and runs certain facets of the company with a micromanaging and dogmatic style. While this might be of benefit, in practive the leadership is highly erratic. Business strategies, goals, metrics, and company culture changes regularly leading everyone scrambling to re-align. Some things are rather transparent as GDH states. Other things extremely opaque. Until recently GDH has been able to brush these things over. But it is having an effect and GDH has burned some senior level bridges both with internal employees and outside professional relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Re-assert higher level production talent. Respect current talent. Hire strong leadership and delegate. Be more transparent in business decision/stragies vs just "the numbers".

    I worked at GDH Consulting full-time

    Pros

    They hire almost exclusively at entry level now, so if you're struggling to find a job or have burned a lot of bridges in the staffing industry, then they'll definitely give someone a chance with no experience, degree, or anything at all. There's also zero opportunity to move up, which is a con, but if you are interviewing for a management position with no experience, then it's a pro.

    Cons

    It's very concerning when a company of this size can't grow anymore and begins to shrink. If the multi-billion dollar companies can find ways to increase year over year, then a smaller company like GDH should be able to, but this is not the case. For some reason they think that turning the company into a sweat shop and pushing out anyone with experience is going to fix that, but it's having the opposite effect. If you're reading this and you're entry level, it's a paycheck and you can probably fly under the radar if you're quiet and passive, but if you actually want to work in staffing, go to a larger company that has a training program, values, and a clear mission.

    Advice to Management

    I always thought the most incompetent people were promoted and the management hires were horrible, so I can't imagine any advice here would be understood. I wish I could share how unprofessional some of the managers are.

    I worked at GDH Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place for individuals who wanted to get started in recruiting. I made some really great, long term friends. The environment is relaxed as it can get stressful when push time.

    Cons

    Most of my cons have to do with the work itself and not having as many positions as I was hoping for in order to make good commission. Also, a very strict 8:00 start time which I find to be a little ridiculous as most candidates or hiring managers that you speak with aren't until later in the day. I feel this should be a little more flexible so you aren't getting in trouble if you don't get there right before 8:00.
