    Pros

    Great way to get a foot in the door into the recruiting industry. Fun, friendly environment. Great leadership.

    Cons

    Not a ton of room for vertical advancement, can realistically only work in that department 2-3 years max. It's hard to find vertical movement in outside departments as well, perceived as you're not committed to the team.

    I worked at MarketSource full-time

    Pros

    Very relaxed, chance to make a lot of friends, learn more about technologies and the future of telecommunications.

    Cons

    Very cut throat, little to no flexability during the holiday season, depending on the District manager you'll either love it or hate it, not all targets like their tech teams

    Advice to Management

    Idk i'm not that good with managment in my opinion. But maybe hire more people that know how to be strict and stern when needed, but who also know when to be more relaxed and non-threatening.
