    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A well respected company with sound, fair Leadership who seem to try and do right by their people as much as they can, even in a tight market.

    Cons

    The nature of the business requires sharp attention to metrics. Sometimes the people component of that may get a little lost.

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a flex schedule and work from home opportunities for top performers. The 401k offering is the best I've seen at an agency, as is the commission structure. You get great PTO as you increase your tenure with the company. (Up to 5 weeks)

    There are dogs in the office and they have a big book of business.

    Cons

    You have to work hard to be successful in this industry.
    If you want a relaxed, easy going job, agency is not going to be for you, however that is true of any agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating new and innovative ways to improve our process and bring in new business. Continue to be approachable and receptive to feedback.

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dogs? And paper towels and snacks for half the month ... that's about it though. It's close to good food? Honestly I'm just filling space now because there was a minimum amount I had to write ...

    Cons

    Leaderless leaders, very insecure and non-confident management, no training, high turnover. Management will slander employees due to their immaturity and inability to handle feedback. They promote from within always. Weird thing too, they happen to always choose the ones who have horrible people management skills to go into leadership roles. Weird!!!

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to even say, you wouldn't listen anyways.

    Pros

    Awesome commission structure with tons of opportunities to make some extra money with bi-monthly competitions. Management is always finding ways to improve Recruiters and Business Developers careers by providing numerous tools/resources and training. Management will create new positions for employees and they like to promote. Very collaborative team and Management is open for new ideas on processes and strategies - you're able to have a voice at Harvey Nash. Flex schedule for employees which is wonderful and they pay for your mobile phone.

    Love the view of the space needle and we get stand up desks. There is quite a bit of ambiguity which is nice so you can create a strategy that works best for you.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    The commission structure is unreal. There is so much opportunity to accomplish your financial goals here. I came from another recruiting agency in Seattle and after working here at Harvey Nash I know that this is the best staffing firm in the area.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of

    Pros

    No ceiling on commissions, flexible schedule, dogs in the office, strong commission structure, 401K match @ 25% for employees and contractors, great networking opportunity

    Cons

    Recruiters are overworked and only rewarded if you have a high GP, there is no training, they don't honor their commitments, there is a high turnover and they promote the wrong people, you aren't able to work on what you want to work on, eliminating the creative aspect of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your current employees, most than just buying happy hour. Get training for entire staff and be realistic when selling the opportunity.
