    I worked at Martin Fletcher & Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    During my tenure with Martin Fletcher, I found the partners to be very concerned with its employee’s well-being, knowledge, and life style. Those who worked for MFA was hard workers who was willing to put in long hours to get the job done. As a result, compensation was very commendable.

    Cons

    The atmosphere at MFA was causal, fun, and competitive. The company found many ways to relieve stress while motivating employees to perform at their highest level. Employees received trips, bonuses or time off for exceeding their goals. Employees was treated like family.

    Advice to Management

    The company is now operating under new management. I am not aware of its culture, training, management style, or compensation.

    Pros

    Great working environment, excellent training, and a tremendous opportunity for the individuals that embrace hard work. The industry is challenging which makes success much sweeter. The income potential is why you work in healthcare staffing! A young competive friendly atmosphere is here.

    Cons

    Like all staffing companies the industry was hit hard over the past few years. The goals are lofty but achievable. The industry is tough and very challenging. Most people are not cut out for this career but those that succeed make great money and enjoy exciting careers.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to communicate with employees at all levels about changes in the future.

    I worked at Martin Fletcher & Associates full-time

    Pros

    You can wear whatever you want to work....thats about it.

    Cons

    -Low base pay
    -Low commission rate
    -Asked to do some unethical things with billing
    -False Promises
    -You can tell the company (especially Perm recruiting) is on the down slope
    -Long hours
    -Not enough accounts to make any real money
    -Make you do 500 cold calls a week when cold calling is clearly dead
    -There is no upward mobility in the company, once you get to team lead, you are stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop asking employees to perform unethical acts, shorten the hours, cold calling is dead, find other ways to source candidates. Use the actual marketing money for marketing purposes. Raise the base pay, raise the commission.

    I worked at Martin Fletcher & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good bonus potential. Ability to travel and opportunity to meet a lot of different people in healthcare.

    Cons

    Very challenging environment. Must be ready for extremely competitive cold call sales. If your sales don't meet expectations you become expendable, and yes certain managers encourage you to lie to make the sale, but that's sales for you. Very long hours. If that's your environment, then more power to you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get so focused on the sale that you drown yourself.

    "Can be a fun place, but ruined due to lofty promises at hiring not being met after starting..."

    Pros

    Can have a fun atmosphere
    Young adult friendly - mostly early career employees, opportunity for co-worker friendships
    Gym discount
    Free Friday breakfast

    Cons

    Lofty promises of room to promote in company... in reality there aren't many places for you to go...
    Long hours - not unusual to be there 7am-7pm, not required but strongly suggested to succeed
    Again not required, but strongly suggested to work through lunch if you want to succeed
    Low base, high commission structure - works in theory, but besides the two agents with the longest tenure, most everyone else stuggles to make money.
    Lack of management support "aka" fire happy - 1 bad month = fear of loosing job, they seem to consistantly fire those struggling rather than supporting/educating when needed as a first solution (when a company hires mostly people with little/no experience, a ramp-up period is to be expected... not uncommon for people to be fired after 3-6 months here)
    No apparent 401K program... if there is one it was never brought to my attention.
    Management is young and doesn't seem to give company practices long enough to make a true effect, before moving on to the next solution

    Advice to Management

    Offer more support to your employees... people are miserable
    Don't use firing as your first response to a struggling employee... a ramp up period of a year minimum is a true test of a person's potential... constantly firing and then re-hiring others with no experience is not going to change the problem, it's just creating a constant cycle that makes your current employees (and potential) not want to work there, and creates a bad image for your company when businesses are constantly talking to a new person (words straight from a MF client's mouth)
    Do things to improve your company brand, because outside the MF office, not many good things are currently being said by the businesses that you market to/work with...
