    I worked at Parker & Lynch full-time

    Pros

    Parker + Lynch is generally a great place to work. It's parent company is Adecco, so it's part of a huge employer and offers tremendous resources to new and tenured recruiters. They take great measures to foster a team spirit and provide excellent benefits due to being affiliated with such a huge company. They reward successes and promote internally, so it's a great place to move into middle management and take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Internal politics and administrative hurdles .

    I have been working at Parker & Lynch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Literally none. Sad and pathetic excuse for an organization

    Cons

    They don’t care or value their employees. They will tell you they do, but you are just a number to them. No training. They don’t invest in their people. Only care about those who bill the most. Really embarrassing for a company who says they recruit for executives but are the most unprofessional group.

    Advice to Management

    Act like a manager. Don’t bury your head in the sand. Treat humans like humans

    Pros

    Really like that everyone cares about each other. Not cut-throat at all.

    Cons

    Not much. If you can take rejection enough times until you hear acceptance, it's great.

    Pros

    There are a few talented people

    There are only a few talented people. Volume over quality. They don’t add value other then sourcing and then, only sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Management is disengaged.

    Pros

    Management even at the top levels know your name, good team culture, and lots of training. Upward mobility if you put in effort and management will let you explore other lines of business if there are openings . Unlimited earning potential and the company offers a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Have not really experienced anything negative and I have been here for 1.5 years. The internal system is not the best but this is being upgraded the end of the year. No complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing into employees that are putting forth effort and allow them to grow and develop their skill set with the organization!

    I worked at Parker & Lynch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    fruit in the chicago office

    Cons

    Management is so busy trying to create their own billings they have no time to train. Their commission scale is warped and pits sales people against recruiters. Lots of in house fighting. This company also pays far below it's competitors because of the way they pay the recruiters. Terrible benefits. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Change the flip percentage to 10% or less across the country instead of 25% in a few offices. It's very discouraging to employees in offices like Chicago that their peers in other offices make more money and are on a different pay schedule.

    I have been working at Parker & Lynch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Parker + Lynch Dallas office has one of the best teams to work with! I have been with the company for 4 years and there's been a lot of changes over the years; but they have all been for the better. It's a stressful job but you make great money, have a lot of support, and colleagues that will do whatever they can to see you succeed. Our Director is one of the nicest guys to work for and very flexible. 18 days PTO your first year and they can carry over.

    Cons

    Benefits are so-so if you have a family - the coverage is good but it can be pricey. Like I mentioned earlier, it's a stressful job in general. There are a lot of highs and a lot of lows. You can't ever coast because it takes a lot of time/effort to do what we do.
