    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.
