    Pros

    I wish I could say, if there were actually any. The only thing good about this place....oh wait is NOTHING!

    Cons

    awful management
    don't control their employees
    very one-sided
    under paid
    CEO is not helpful on anything
    Rude Co-workers
    extremely awkward office culture
    not very helpful HR department
    this place just sucks

    Advice to Management

    Actually help out your employees, if you want them to last, work with them on growing within the company. Also, whenever there is a problem, no one seems to help! Better management please, also don't turn the other way when there is a problem, instead of ignoring it-help out your employees to find a solution for it.

    I have been working at MRI Boston Group full-time

    Pros

    You can earn a lot but it comes with a price

    Cons

    They "grind you to the bone" to make a buck. You are also forced to act in a manner that is unprofessional. What I mean by that is they dont care if the candidates they are placing like their job or that the person is the right fit at their client companies. Just that the person takes the job and stays for their guarantee period so they can make money. This is a hrad way to do business becuase there is always conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Have some emathy. Treat your workers, candidates you are trying to get jobs for, and your clients like you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    good location, nice people, several people I worked with really liked it and made decent money

    Cons

    management and HR don't value employees. Also if a recruiter, their payment structure results in it taking a long while to get paid.
