    I have been working at Motion Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great company with many growth opportunities for anyone who wants to work hard to add value.

    * Promotes from within: management is observant of your performance and is not afraid to give you more responsibility if they feel you have earned it.
    * Great company climate: everyone is happy with their roles, responsibilities and management.
    * Awesome culture: lots of hard work, but also lots of fun and camaraderie. Coworkers are respectful and management is helpful.

    Cons

    Motion is a young, evolving company that is constantly improving.
    The resulting changes mean it falls short on having proper departmental procedures and role definitions for all areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue implementing your vision for the company!

    Pros

    Motion Recruitment has been "home" for the past year and a half. From the minute I interviewed, I knew this would be a great place to work. My recruiter assured me that I would be really happy here, boy was he right! The staff is not only helpful but such a joy to work with. I was promoted months after being here and I have truly seen so much opportunity for advancement and growth. There have been so many new jobs created/added due to the growth. I will be here for years to come!!!

    Cons

    I honestly cant think of any worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!!

    Pros

    Fantastic career growth
    Improved Multitasking skills
    Improved communication skills
    Improved management skills
    Excellent Benefits
    Phenomenal leadership
    Good Team environment
    Excellent recognition

    Cons

    Starting base salary is a little low
    You don't make commission for the first 10-12 months if not longer.
    Training could be better

    Advice to Management

    Improving the training program to longer and more interactive is what I believe will reduce the turnover rate of recruiters. The video training program is insufficient to be successful in this business. You have to figure you way around at first with not much guidance which is good and bad at the same time.

    Pros

    -Culture
    -Growth opportunity
    -Knowledge
    -Learning how to be solutions oriented
    -Interaction with Hiring Managers

    Cons

    -Salary – not competitive however it is a great motivation to do your job well and excel, and finally get the pay increase that comes alone with the promotion.

    -High stress at times, but it pays off once a position is filled with your candidate.

    Advice to Management

    All and all Motion Recruitment Partners is a great place to work. Having worked on both sides of the company, The Agencies and Seven Step, I cannot say I would want to be anywhere else. The culture is great, everyone is young, energetic and there for the same reason, to get the job done for the clients and reap the benefits of filling these positions, whatever they may be. The team leads are a wonderful support system, reviewing your goals once a month and making sure you are hitting them, being subject matter experts about the industry and job model, giving you that extra push you may need, and always being there through all of your ups and downs for moral support. The only downfall, which is not really even a downfall, is the salary. It is not competitive however, money drives people to succeed. If you want the more competitive salary and are willing to put the work in, you surely will get it her at Motion Recruitment Partners. The business model is short and sweet and to the point, and it works! The company is very goal oriented with competition between teams, between team members, and even with ones self to see how far you can push yourself.

    Pros

    • Truly superior sales training, starting with basic lead generation, on to account management, advanced negotiation skills, etc.; you're instructed on and off the desk from Day 1
    • You are doing real business with real companies while you're still very green; within 30 days you're responsible for building new clients and making business deals at a stage where at another agency your role might be limited to candidate sourcing for 12 months or more
    • Significant income growth for top producers within a few years; it's not easy to get to that stage of course, but if you're a commissionable employee on a top 25% percentile team you'll be earning more than most of your peers in other industries outside of finance, or without an MBA
    • You can build a strong network; high-level people at impressive companies know your name, and depend on you to solve business problems, and if you do it well, your reputation will last
    • If you're on the agency side, you're getting an education in entrepreneurial corporate culture; your boss will will try his/her best to be a mentor and share battle stories, client lore, business etiquette, where are the best restaurants in Midtown,etc., and the level of personal attention to employees is high at every stage of your career
    • Following that last one...if you like the job, and if you get good at it, you can become a manager yourself in an average of 1.5 years; all of sudden now you're in a position to teach others what you've learned, inspire your team, look after your business, and hopefully become a leader worthy of trust

    Cons

    •The nature of inside sales, regardless of what company you work for, is a lot of time at the desk and on the phone, coupled with pressure to produce, which can have the effect of sending less experienced business people on something of an emotional roller-coaster; this is not unique to the Workbridge Associates or to Motion Recruitment Partners, and sales remains a challenging way to make a living, and even the most stern and steady professional can get burned out after a while
    • Because sales and recruiting is a team operation, everyone needs to be there, in the office, doing the same thing at the same time to accomplish team goals; for this reason your schedule is extremely rigid, and it's a challenge to maintain focus while spending unbroken hours at the desk, especially when you're junior in the business and you don't have people to manage, meetings to write, clients to visit, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The new executive management team at MRP has transformed this brand radically in the past 2 years, and I applaud them for making the agencies more sustainable and client focused.

    Here's one idea for the future...maybe explore bonus incentives for sales people not on commission who demonstrate high performance in a particular month or quarter, again with the aim of improving morale and expanding that zone of success (so to speak) where team members start to see significant financial rewards for their work. When you're a young sales guy and you do good work, praise from your manager is a great thing, but so is getting to buy an overpriced silk tie, taking care of rent for that month, and getting a round at the bar for your friends.

    I have been working at Motion Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, very easy access to management, fun culture. The managers will mold you into a good salesperson if you listen to them and grind.

    Great earning potential (over 100k in one to two years if you last).

    Cons

    Way too many morning meetings / role plays / meetings in general / people constantly saying the same things over and over again. As with many sales jobs, extremely high turnover.

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

    Pros

    Excellent open ended environment with strong emphasis on team work. As a new college grad, you're expected to come in driven and determined to grow. You will learn a lot of transferable recruiting and sales skills in a listen, copy, and imitate learning structure. Great opportunity into the world of recruiting

    Cons

    As a third party agency, a lot of your performance is evaluated based off numbers. You will have weekly and monthly metrics that you are expected to hit. They seem unreasonable at times but are never impossible. Management does a good job of helping you reach your goals. Hit your goals, you'll do fine. If you cannot make the improvements, the job can be stressful.
