    I worked at Gardner Resources Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    GRC was a really good place to work. I worked there for 7 years after having worked for a few other agencies and found them to be the best by far. It was a great team environment, had good training and support, and knowledgeable management. The compensation program was really good as well. I learned a lot and was successful while I was there. The only reason I left was because I wanted to move from the agency world to being an internal, corporate recruiter. They're a really great company and I learned a lot.

    Cons

    You can make a lot of money doing agency recruiting but you're constantly competing against other agencies. After 10 years in the business I decided to move into a less competitive environment working as a corporate recruiter.

    Advice to Management

    You've got a great team and culture. Keep it up.

    Pros

    Good sales/recruitment training and good client base.

    Advice to Management

    Establish managers that enable not compete.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work! The company really values the employees, keeps a good work / life balance and has a close knit, team oriented culture. Everyone cares about doing a good job and supports each other.

    I've had the opportunity to expand my job responsibilities into areas that I'm really interested in and energize me. My compensation has grown during my stay here.

    There is really good communications between each other and management.

    The team works really well together and has been very successful.

    I'm happy to be here.

    Cons

    IT Staffing can be a challenging business and it can be very competitive with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open door policy and support for the team. It really helps.

    Pros

    Great team culture, hardworking colleagues you can depend on, creative financial incentives for performance, flexible work environment. Hard work and achievement of goals is rewarded.

    We are frequently told by consultants that we are the best agency they have worked with - and we are proud of that. Our standard process is focused on a high level of communication, such as getting to know our consultants during the interview & placement process, and then continuing to speak frequently throughout their assignments to ensure successful projects for them and for our clients.

    Cons

    At times, staffing can be a difficult industry to work in. Most of the employees here get that, and we support each other through the ups and down.

    Advice to Management

    Continue motivating our team with both financial and recreational rewards. Focus on growing the company by considering ideas that are outside of the box.

    Pros

    GRC is a strong profitable company with excellent leadership that promotes employee growth. All employees have an unmatched work ethic that ensures success as a team. The management team is built from employees that have been with GRC for many years and all have a keen understanding of what it takes to reach personal and company success.

    Cons

    Working in a very competitive market and be difficult for those without a strong work ethic.

    Pros

    Good group of people to work with if you are a people person- we are tight knit, enjoy joking around and trying to make make work an enjoyable place to be. We work hard, play hard (regular BBQs, company outings, wiffle-ball team, occasional lobster lunch) and we are always looking for like-minded people!

    Cons

    The job isn't easy, but we have extensive training to help put everyone in a position to succeed. The success of the team relies on the hard work of every individual- so we all hold ourselves and each other to high standards so we can all achieve high levels of success!

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership to help everyone achieve both personal and professional goals. Good job of motivating our team with both financial and recreational rewards- keep it up!

    Pros

    I am able to work creatively, my ideas get heard. The opportunity to earn a lot of money is more than just a "sky is the limit" speech. I love the people I work with, and the fun we have working together.

    Cons

    It's a close knit team so you have to be willing to get to know your colleagues. GRC definitely believes in its process, and the quality of resources we provide. There is an expectation that you adapt to the processes that have lead to our success.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job but communication between management and staff can always be better. Sometimes you complicate the uncomplicated. It would help if you would be more open to keeping it simple.

    Pros

    Can't think of one positive thing to say here

    Cons

    A chew em up and spit em out attitude. Management will tell you whatever they think you want to hear coming in the door. For a company this small it is amazing the number of over inflated egos they have. Heavy reliance on a few clients - the loss of any one could spell disaster for the firm. Lack of professionalism where employees are trained and encourage to lie to clients in order to close deals.

    Advice to Management

    Try an honest approach with both clients and employees
