    Pros

    Fantastic culture, personable and approachable CEO, excellent management, great executive team that listens to suggestions and actively pursues changes to improve the business, and an all around group of honest hard working individuals.

    Cons

    Only thing I could say is technology - which has been responsibly addressed by our CEO and Executive Team. So it is well on it's way to not being a "con" anymore!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    No other sales job better than here. Lucas Group truly believes in family first. They allow you to have a geat work life balance. Don't get me wrong, the solid producers work hard. You are given all the tools and support to be successful. Every recruiter has a LinkedIn Recruiter account and two computer monitors. No secret to be successful here. We help companies hire great talent and help great talent with their careers through caring about their needs. Also, training is great, even for seasoned recruiters.

    Cons

    Waiting for new CRM to be installed in 2018. At times competing with management on filling positions. One more computer monitor would be nice. 😊

    Advice to Management

    Managers should train and lead. When managers are recruiting, they are not training and developing.

    Pros

    The culture in the New York Office is great. It is truly an amazing group of people that makes you want to come to work everyday. In the business of recruiting, that is not something you can find everywhere. The group is very team-oriented, and always willing to help someone even if they are not on their team.

    Cons

    The CRM is older but a new system is being implemented in the coming months.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership team in NY is a great one and I think any salesperson or recruiter would love working for them. The office is going to continue to grow, and I am sure the leadership team will do their part to help people continue to develop.

    Pros

    The team is friendly and tried to help.

    Cons

    Almost no clarity around on how to succeed and training opportunities were scarce, Turnover is crazy high because the managers don't value the recruiters. Provide a better office and technology environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training for recruiters, make your managers help, and fix your database.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here

    Cons

    They sell you on company culture and flexible schedules but they get mad at you when you try to take time off. They claim they are not micro- managing but they hover over you, record phone conversations, monitor everything that you do.

    Outdated systems- they don't provide linkedin recruiter for all recruiters just certain ones. "ole boys club" environment. Outdated desktops and systems run slowly and often freeze.

    Advice to Management

    Get stronger management and invest in your employees. They think that because they offer "30 days of training" that they have the best of the best but really you would only enjoy working here if you like to be monitored 24/7
