    I worked at K2 Partnering Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid percentage of commission up front, and the last percentage after client pays. Upper management listens and is very supportive. The company is very much centered around it's employees. They want everyone to be successful and offer the resources to ensure that you're making the placements. Very transparent career path.

    Cons

    Paid once a month. While everyone is friendly, for the most part, it's a "make money, not friends mentality," Can be a little competitive, but, it's recruiting. Made some hiring mistakes. Office environment can be gossipy. Not all offices are uniform in the way business is practiced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support employees with career development. Improve commission structure between recruiters and account managers 50/50, and better screen management roles when hiring from outside.

    Not a big office so there is a lot of work to be done. Always busy and does provide a great service.

    Management in fine at K2. There's nothing I would suggest changing except making the place happier inside because it's not.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at K2 Partnering Solutions (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely helpful, good communication, reps get to know consultants' strengths, keep consultants apprised of information on project changes, ensure consultants are doing well on projects

    Cons

    1099 paid through 3rd party that charges a fee for each hour worked just to cut a monthly check, have not heard from them since last project ended a couple of months ago

    Advice to Management

    While communication was good, it wasn't great. Sometimes, I had no communications for months unless I contacted them. I had no idea my rep had left K2 until the client said something to me.

    "Sundowner" on every first Friday of the month, where management provides updates on performance of prior month followed by music, food and drinks
