    I have been working at Kforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Kforce has a ISS department specializing in VISA sponsorship. Kforce holds the 3rd most VISAs in the nation passing Google. This opens up an enormous talent pool almost no other agencies have access to. also leading the nation in green card processing to set us apart from other staffing agencies.

    The leadership which is in place at Kforce is top notch. When you join the family, the leaders immediately start working on your career trajectory roadmap. They truly listen to where you envision yourself in the late stages of your career, and come up with tangible building blocks, elevating you until you reach that point and beyond.
    Kforce gives you everything you need to be successful. You can make as much money as you put into it. 60+ offices across the nation which interface with each other frequently, opens the doors to endless possibilities (70% of fortune 100 are clients). If I find a top talent that desires a job in any area of the US... I can help them get a job there. Every call you make, you have the ability to be a great resource for the individual.

    Also, with 60+ offices nationwide... if you or a spouse needs to relocate to a different city, most likely kforce has an office close by which you can transfer to.

    Fun work culture in office with numerous out of office team building events.
    Flexibility in the workspace as well. Our leaders are understanding of personal situations, and our business allows you to be productive while out of office.

    I moved to my office from a city across the nation, new to this area, and have found a family who I am excited to go in the office and see on a daily basis. We also have a blast out of office as well. All of our clients love and respect us. We have an outstanding footprint in the staffing industry with proven data to support our sales efforts. Its corny to follow the slogan, but I truly love who I work with and who I serve for clients.

    Cons

    they restructured the commission % split to encourage longevity of internal workforce. It has made a big difference from the previous model (jealous I didn't have the structure when I joined), but for most, it does take 6+ months to really start making solid commission checks, especially in CA with the 43% commission tax.

    outside of ramping commissions.... the resources we have as an enterprise, outweigh the split we get on each deal. Kforce offers so many differentiating resources to set you up for success, that you close way more deals than possible with other agencies who pay slightly more for each closed deal.

    Advice to Management

    easier access to cross submittal opportunities with vertical accounts maybe. Everyone will always want more money too... but that's why we are hungry and in this business never satisfied with our take home today. Don't get it twisted either, I make a very very healthy living with the amount of time I put into my craft.

    Office environment very supportive, team-oriented
    Lots of training opportunities, both when onboarding and on the job
    Truly are rewarded and recognized for your success on an office level and nationally

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate benefits package to try and attract even better talent. Would love to see Kforce be a leader in family leave policy, etc.
    Investing in marketing is probably necessary to compete with other large recruiting firms.

    Not specific to Kforce, but staffing industry in general, there is a 6-12+ month ramp up period for new associates. Successful associates need a high level of grit and determination!

    Pros

    Kforce really values customer service and a great experience for clients, consultants, and internal employees. I've truly felt an amazing amount of support in my several years at Kforce in both my professional and personal growth and goals. I've felt very valued and like what I do really matters. It's truly a great culture that has kept me here for so long.

    Cons

    Kforce does not provide a good maternity leave plan for it's employees. There is a lot of improvement to be done with that.
