    I have been working at Kforce full-time

    Pros

    Leadership and senior colleagues want to see everyone win. There is no back stabbing in this firm. Expectations are clear and there is no limit to how high you can succeed as long as you are willing to put in the work. This company is different as they are interested in the long term relationship instead of the quick sale. Kforce emphasizes taking care of the consultant population and wants to ensure every consultant feels they have built a long term relationship with a firm that cares about their growth.

    Cons

    It's still a sales environment...for some metrics are pressure points and perforce them to be "micro managing". Very flat organization and expectations are that everyone is a producer. For those that need "promotions" or title upgrades this can be challenging; but for those that want to make a difference and help others achieve career goals it's the perfect firm.

    Advice to Management

    Good job at building a strong culture in a ruthless industry. Clear career road maps are important to all associates so a focus on building a long term vision at the producer level is important.

    I have been working at Kforce full-time

    Pros

    If you work hard and focus on serving the customer and candidate, you can have a very good career here. You cannot expect to earn a large income without putting significant effort in, especially if you are new to the business. Often times people come in without an understanding of how business works, and also how building relationships works. This is something that takes time. The best leaders at Kforce understand this, and continuously train their people in these areas. can force has done a great job of making changes in leadership to truly focus on supporting the associates to be successful in their careers.

    Cons

    To someone that hasn't worked in the staffing industry before, it does seem that there is a lot of turnover, but this is common in all staffing companies. This is a sales oriented business, and if you do not like building a network of contacts, which requires a lot of phone calls and networking, then you will not be successful in this job. You can't build relationships over email.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training, it can be difficult with all of the things required of you, but in the end it will pay off.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Contacted by Kforce and immediately placed.

    Cons

    Did not care that the position did not meet expectations Would not consider looking for other opportunities Never followed up with you after placed After temp months expired did not communicate as to whether or not hired by company Did not take interest when client had to resign due to negative atmosphere and outrageous hours No contact and no initiative to place client into different position/Basically told to sign up with other agencies

    Advice to Management

    Contact client weekly, consider all input from client and take into consideration what the client has to say. Be considerate and listen to each clients concerns and requests.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with a great group of energetic people. Very positive vibes...one of the best places to work and hard too leave, however needed to make more $$$ for same work.

    Cons

    Pay structure for Sales changed in 2015 to: Sales + Commission vs. draw and higher commission that was cut by 50% for guaranteed salary. My experience as a large company grows they try to real in the costs and this hurts the top end of Sales and recruiting.

    Pros

    The client relationship managers I interacted with were top notch and wanted to make sure things were going well between myself and the client. Even after being notified that I was going with another agency.

    Cons

    My staffing representative changed while on assignment and the replacement was not very proactive in finding my next assignment causing me to look to another agency for placement.

    Advice to Management

    Better retention processes for staffing representatives might alleviate this type of issue. At least a better handoff between outgoing and incoming reps would affect an increased level of communication between all parties involved.
