    I have been working at Lyons HR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a company small enough to know your name but large enough to provide advancement opportunities. Very reputable upper management that that ownership in the company. They care for their staff and onsite employees. Lyons HR wants to make a difference in their communities.

    Cons

    Entry level positions do not offer top pay. They do, however, provide opportunities to advance to a higher pay scale through promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the people. The people make the process work.

    I worked at Lyons HR full-time

    Pros

    co-workers are friendly and your able to help people who are genuinely looking for employment.

    Cons

    very unorganized, management would rather be your friend than lead, the recruiters do everything, pay is low for all what you do, communication is the worst(everyone assumes you know everything verses just giving you the correct information). Upper management does not help out a lot during busy times(they would rather just watch you pull your hair out and sit back and relax and go to lunch)

    Advice to Management

    Management should take ownership of the branch and not throw everything off on the recruiter. If you are the manager then be the manager. Practice better communication skills. Lead by example.

    Pros

    Lyons HR is a growing PEO and is fully accredited. If you establish a relationship with the right managers you could do well.

    Cons

    It is extremely hard to work for the majority of the managers. The management team (chiefs) have a high lack of respect for the employees within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management at Lyons HR would stress the importance of treating employees the same way you'd like to be treated.

    Pros

    It started out okay, but went downhill after 4 months. Most of the people are friendly.

    Cons

    Lack of sales management, plan of action non-existent, commission structure misleading (non-existent). Always have to get everything in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Before you hire someone, please provide a true representation of the current customer base and provide support for your salespeople.
