    I worked at Nelson Staffing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You get to work with a large number of clients (some big names)
    - A true agency
    - Family owned over public
    - Medium sized. Not huge or super small

    Cons

    - Very corporate environment that hates Millennials
    - No room for growth even though they will lie and tell you there is
    - Upper management is extremely close minded, uneducated and is in Sonoma thinking business runs like is did 20+ years ago
    - Awful technology, slow to make changes and always late to the game compared to competitors
    - They only change when they get sued
    - SUPER low pay and awful benefits
    - No training program
    - Really bad culture. They use to have a great one, but over the past 2 years it has plummeted

    Advice to Management

    - Eventually you will have to change and accept the market or the company will die
