    I have been working at MRINetwork full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance is fantastic, 401(k) is industry average but you get a pension plan that you don't have to contribute to. Social events and other expense policies are very generous. 25 days PTO, far more than any I've heard of.

    Cons

    I don't see negatives in working for the MRI Network. Only positives. No mandatory retirement age. Unlimited earnings potential. Excellent company in all aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep up the great work. Keep up the great work. Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at MRINetwork part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small company. Life, work balanced. you can work from home. flexible hours. lots of training materials.

    Cons

    not organized. Not a very bright future. some times very stressful especially when you have not make your number.

    Advice to Management

    Management should put clear goals and set the expectation clearly. Should have some mentors hip throughout the first three months of employment.

    Pros

    Great training ground to set a foundation in recruiting. If you want to be a recruiter, this is the best place to learn the ins and outs of recruiting and teach you the craft

    Cons

    There are too many "scripts" and "the way we have always done it" approach. There is no one way to recruit but they prefer the MRI way. Very structured and lots of micromanagement, The flip side of that being if you learn how to manage your day and stay on the phone.....you will be succesfull.

    Advice to Management

    Let people develop into their own style of recruiter. Once they have the basics and the placements are happening let them follow their instincts if the numbers continue to increase

    Pros

    Great training, wonderful boss, good intro to industry

    Cons

    You are ultimately on your own--the training can only take it so far. You have to be willing to slog for a long time before the placements start to come. Ultimately you only eat what you kill.

    Pros

    I can honestly not think of a single positive attribute I can ascribe to this company.

    Cons

    Low pay, absolutely terrible management and contracts that trap recruiters into being forced to stay.

    Advice to Management

    I could go on and on but there's nothing to be said to a management that's inflexible, unwilling to change and by their own omission has a management style based in fear.

    I worked at MRINetwork part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for the work you're doing. Flexible hours and time off. There is a pandora connected speaker in the office and you can decide which music gets played. There is a ping pong table that doubles as a meeting table. No dress code.

    Cons

    The office is depressing and really needs to be spruced up. All the furniture there is old and breaking and uncomfortable. I was made to do technical set up that I didn't know how to do and was reprimanded when I hadn't finished the task on time. Male-dominated, sexist management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the office atmosphere, stop micro-managing,

    I worked at MRINetwork full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The position offered a comprehensive training program, some team building exercises, and the support of tenured recruiters. There was flexibility in how you approached your work, with an expectation of independence and personal initiative.

    Cons

    Internal politics and office culture could be very, very competitive as industry specialties (and potential clients, contracts) overlapped. Quotas and expectations were very high and came very swiftly - even before training was complete. After one month of training, the office manager began hazing trainees and threatening to fire them one by one (4/5 reported this); tenured recruiters referred to this as a vetting process to weed out individuals with 'weaker' constitution and leave only the toughest individuals. However, the hazing was not based on numbers or performance and was overall demoralizing. Recruiting turnover is often high - in this office, however, the flow was different than in many others. Once tenured, individuals tended to stay on long-term (years). However, new individuals turned over very quickly with very few moving past training. Personally I made it past training but found the hazing very distasteful.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce negative language and harsh feedback during training to minimize new-trainee turnover. Support cooperation in the office instead of stoking cut-throat competition between closely aligned recruiters.
