    I worked at Onward Technologies Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Lots of opportunities to grow. As a Recruiter several options to make money. These guys have Tons of requirements & great relationship with their customers.
    Never in my life had witnessed most of the candidates getting hired without even interview. Amazing Sales team. They work with OEMs & several T1 Automotive companies
    Building New office opening next year I guess?

    Cons

    Had to leave for personal reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Small advice to Top Management not working from here, start listening to your Sales team. Too much interference could be a problem.

    Pros

    no pros whatsoever, nothing positive. Save yourself from the embarrassment of having to work here.

    Cons

    Where do I begin, management is horrible and doesn't care about anything, not even profit. Instead their main concern is playing politics, and acting like the big guy on campus, which they can't pull off because they are all terrible at their job.

    They have no business prospects, no relationship with their clients, sales is the most apathetic group I have ever seen, months will go by without any new business, but if you try to talk to them about it they get so defensive and act like you're personally attacking them.

    They don't understand the staffing industry in the slightest, they don't understand how to communicate effectively with clients, how to arrange for interviews, how to onboard candidates, and the worst part is they think they have a clue.

    Advice to Management

    Resign from your positions and find another line of work more suited to your particular lack of skills.

    I worked at Onward Technologies Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office location is the only thing that I can think of, unfortunately nothing else at all comes to my mind

    Cons

    Boston office has very poor management, absolutely don't care about their employees, very disrespectful, absoulutely zero "fun life" in the office, no team outings and team building, no stable client base, a lot of micromanagement. Working there, I had to be very careful about watching my paychecks and very often had late payments for my work related expenses. And not even once got an apology for that. They still owe me money.

    Advice to Management

    Please come out of your offices more often and talk to your employees, get to know them better and make sure they are happy.

    Pros

    Great young management team in Rosemont (Chicago), consistently working on innovative ways to sell, manage, recruit and promote from within. Consistent revenue growth, which allows for internal promotion and pay increases. Top performers are awarded well for effort and performance. Professional atmosphere, yet a fun team environment. Great office. Positive, winning attitude all around with every employee. Bad attitudes, and can't do attitudes do not thrive or survive in this organization. Performance and attitude is the signature of the typical employee.

    Cons

    Very low tolerance for poor performance and management does not hesitate to address this. Poor attitudes are called out quickly without hesitation. Extremely competitive environment.

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the Chicago office is very positive. This is an environment in which hours spent translate to compensation or promotion. Being professional is highly prized and the expectation is for each and every person to take care of his/her business. If that happens, the rewards are there.

    Cons

    Young branch; still learning how to organize.
