    Pros

    Young, vibrant place to work. The harder you work, the more you will get in return. Great place to work for those who are competitive and thrive in fast paced environments.

    Cons

    Not your typical 9-5 job. You have to put in the hours to get great results.

    I worked at Internal Data Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will pay you a high base salary, but it's because their commission structure is sooo low compared to other organizations in the same industry, and down the same street in Atlanta! This is a great job for straight out of college students, looking for their first jobs - BUT the CEO and branch manager's will capitalize on this.

    Cons

    You must drink the company kool-aid. You must befriend the CEO. It's most certainly a good-ol-boy system if you're trying to move up in the company. You're forced to work out and run 4 miles with the company, 2 days a week, rather than focus on your desk and being successful.

    Advice to Management

    You should consider getting new management if you're trying to change the direction of the company, not utilize the same resources, or you're duplicating your failure. Your turnover is the lowest in the industry for a reason, your competitors know how to retain top talent, you should take Notes.

    I worked at Internal Data Resources full-time

    Pros

    The only pro to working here is that you have the potential to make a lot of money.

    Cons

    The company is way more concerned about profit than the individual. You have the potential to make a lot of money but have to sacrifice everything in the process. Recruiting companies are a dime a dozen these days... don't work at this one.

    I worked at Internal Data Resources (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is highly responsive and attentive, making sure that you have all that you need to be successful as a contractor. They regularly check your status and effectively negotiate with their clients on your behalf. I started with a 2-week contract that was extended to 10-months. IDR is one of the few staffing firms that provide insurance. By far, they have been the best staffing firm that I have worked with.

    Cons

    Need more Tarrant County opportunities.

    I worked at Internal Data Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    N/A - addressing only the referral program

    Cons

    IDR's REFERRAL PROGRAM - Get everything in writing. Regardless of what the company says or promotes they tend to play the "wait and see" game - management will sit around and not address items hoping that they disappear. If they do surface they try and find any "loophole" they can to keep from paying what is deserved. If you choose to partner with this company, set up-front terms and (again) get everything in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that there are hundreds of staffing companies around and that you are probably not the only one out there with that same position (not hard to google). Keeping great relationships with people who trust you enough to send over referrals should be high priority.

    Pros

    Great company culture - high energy, fun.
    Professional development - a lot of time and money is put into training employees as well as continual development like Leadership Development and Mentorship Program
    Money - Recruiters and Account Managers have a great base pay and the best in the industry commission structure. Your annual salary is solely based on your ambition and what you put into it.

    Cons

    The only thing is that many of our employees are entry-level, right out of college so most are expecting a typical 8 to 5 and immediate gratification (hires and commission). It takes time and hard work to ramp up and to start being successful in the business. It's sales.

    Pros

    1) I was able to work through IDR out of Atlanta, GA, 100% from my home for 7 years.
    2) The money was fairly good, but the company policy of a review every year did not occur; instead I had to contact the CEO, Eric French, after my 3rd year to even get noticed.

    Cons

    My largest complaint concerning IDR is that they profess to value their employees, and offer an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) that may or may not pay out to anyone in the far distant future, maybe. The company may or may not ever pay out to anyone, except to those working in the main offices, at the whim of whomever controls the fund.
    If the ESOP is part of any prospective employee of the company in making their decision to work for IDR, then they may wish to rethink working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Make it clear on your career website that your ESOP is only for those employees that you choose to grant use of it, after being vested, and that you've set it up in such a way that it will probably never be paid out to the people, contract or other employees, that make up your company.

    It is an IDR practice to make sure each of our employees understand the entire IDR benefits structure; including those listed benefits of IDR’s Employee Stock Ownership Plan. Not only is an overview ... More
