    There are no cons. Great place to work.

    I worked at Petersan Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Social atmosphere, great admin staff.

    Cons

    Owners are condescending, reprimand employees on the floor in front of colleagues, no direction, everyone is an island.

    Pros

    They sometimes have great jobs

    Cons

    They are not trustworthy. They lie to candidates and should not be trusted. Be careful what you tell them and be suspicious of whatever they say.

    I have been working at Petersan Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros for the agency or any of their staff, whether agent or receptionist.

    Cons

    Unless the interview ended in an immediate job offer, they don't contact you to let you know it didn't go well, or to give you feedback. In fact, they won't even accept your calls or return them. If you can't make money for them, you're dead to them. Being left in limbo and treating people this way is utterly unforgiveable.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your candidates are professionals and would like to be treated accordingly, and get a book on legal ethics and professional business practices and read thoroughly.
