    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.

    Pros

    Exceptional training and career coaching for new and experienced recruiters alike.

    Cons

    After a few years in the business the career path flattens, which is common in many sales positions. Too many choose out to move up.

    Pros

    -Compensation Structure highly rewards achievements
    -Great training programming for new hires
    -Out of Office bonding
    -Office culture is very lively
    -Ability to use all aspects of your personality in this role
    -Learning how to communicate efficiently, work as a team, work independently, hone existing skills or learn new professional skills
    -not being glued to an office chair while working for 9-10 hours straight.
    -Flexible Management who knows that there are lives outside of work

    Cons

    -Work can feel long on some days
    -the ramp up for new hires can feel long

    Advice to Management

    You're on a good trajectory right now for growth, keep it up. There are some instances where I feel more time can be devoted to new hires to help them develop their skills faster to make the ramp up period feel less stressful. But once you finally get going, it feels like you're always sprinting in a marathon race, very exhilarating.

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

    Pros

    Working at Intellenet was a great starting opportunity, and one of my first "real" jobs. Intellenet has a fantastic and collaborative work environment that produces results. I learned a lot about task management, cold calling, and good people skills.

    Though I had no prior recruiting experience, my Co-Workers were very supportive and helped me grasp the ropes quickly.

    The Sales and Marketing training is top notch, and has its applications out of work as well. At Intellenet I learned a lot of life skills that i'll certainly take with me into the future. It was a truly worthwhile experience.

    Cons

    Cold Calling is not for everyone by any means. If you're competitive like I was then you'll be fine. It's rewarding but hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great training! It really helps.

    Pros

    Opportunity to make life changing compensation and the ability to help people who want and need your help. Also, the most comprehensive and valuable insight on your specific niche than any other profession/ career can offer and a very complex pipeline/contacts within that niche industry that you specialize in as an AE.

    Cons

    Can be very challenging when you are having problems getting Job Orders, which means you are not bringing in any compensation/ money to live.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some type of base salary or living expenses for AE's in their rookie year as long as they are meeting the effort/activity level that is expected with someone beginning.
