    I have been working at Green Key Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at GKR is you have the opportunity to learn. You understand the psychology behind people, in a professional career. You don't need to graduate at the top of your class to be successful here. Work ethic, culture fit, dynamics, the willingness to take advice criticism/ critique from senior team members will give you the opportunity to have more than a job. You have A TON of opportunity here.

    Cons

    Not really a con, more of a comment- This is a job that requires an entrepreneurial spirit. If you're looking for a 9 to 5, this 100% is not the right job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Being that Green Key staffs in many different verticals, it's important to have team directors take time to go 1 on 1 with newer research analysts/ junior recruiters. It helped me tremendously, and I know I certainly can't speak on behalf of every team but senior management in my group have taught me more than any book can! All directors should understand that even while they are busy, a half hour to an hour of some real coaching will benefit the recruiter, the team, that director and the firm as a whole.That's been instrumental in how I'm able to support our team, the candidates I represent, as well as understand the needs of our clients!

    I worked at Green Key Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • There are definitely some talented recruiters who you could learn from
    • Very fun environment – good group of guys who like sports who you can chat with outside of prime time

    Cons

    • Extremely Lazy Management – most Directors / Executive Directors would sit back and do essentially nothing during the day and simply wait for a junior recruiter to send them a resume. They were not held accountable and forced to do any real recruiting. It is very easy to post a resume to a portal and then sit back and collect. For any new recruiter, GKR is a good place to learn the fundamentals of recruiting, but within a few years you will inevitably be capped and never surpass the people that have been there for many years despite being more talented. It simply a stepping stone, not a place you want to be at long term if you have ambitions to the reach the pinnacle of your career

    Advice to Management

    • No advice. They started a very successful company and have been very profitable and the Partners have made a lot of money – good for them, that’s capitalism. When you become a big company, everybody is replaceable and just like the NFL, nobody is bigger than the shield, so if you don’t like it, then leave, or don’t complain.

    I worked at Green Key Resources part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I think that GreenKey is really helpful and they go through everything with you and help you find something that may fit your work style.

    Cons

    Because it is a recruiting company you have to keep stay on top of your stuff. If you don't contact them, they won't contact you.

    I have been working at Green Key Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently worked with a recruiter while looking for my next position. This person by far was the most professional recruiter I have worked with in my career. He really cared about getting the right position for me and was always available to me via email of phone call. I highly recommend Green Key above any other recruiting firm.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of

    I have been working at Green Key Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working in the staffing industry for 10+ years. My first 5 years were spent in a very metrics-driven environment where management solely was focused on the bottom line.
    I've been at Green Key for 3 years; and I can honestly say the management team here " gets it"!!! It's a pleasure being part of an organization that is experiencing phenomenal growth, while promoting a healthy culture that invests in the individual.

    Cons

    CONS
    Occasional technology issues; however, the current IT team is aggressively and SUCCESSFULLY addressing the issues!

    Pros

    Margaret was one of the nicest, and most knowledgeable, and "will-work-with-you-to-get-it-done" headhunters I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    I can think of none.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Margaret Lambert!

    I have been working at Green Key Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Value employees at all levels and their ideas and input
    Work life balance- Quality over Quantity
    Owners and high level executives are easily accessible and involved
    Amazing social media team helps get the name and brand out there

    Cons

    Not sure I would say this is a "con" but a possible area of improvement. The company invests money in their employees and the results are an amazing culture. Less money is spent on expensive infrastructure or IT systems. I wouldn't trade it but, if I had to pick "area of improvement" it might be on some of our technology based tools.
