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

    Pros

    Most of my peers were great to work with, treated each other well, and knew their job.

    Cons

    HR sends too many mixed messages, doesn't know how to give a legitimate performance appraisal, and thinks that Magical Thinking will make it a better company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mid-level and upper management with actual GOOD experience. Ditch the professional development program (it's useless) until you can actually figure out how to help employees grow and develop. Do YOUR job and hire people to do THEIR job.
