    Pros

    Pinnacle is a great place to get your feet wet in the staffing industry.

    Cons

    Management is poor and communication is terrible throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more instead of just deciding how things should be according to your "research" and numbers.

    Pros

    My experience at Pinnacle so far has been very satisfying, good people and good opportunities! Communication about upcoming events and opportunities is very good. Employee involvement in community events is also encouraged if time permits. Facilities are always well maintained and the work environment is clean and safe.

    Cons

    Pay system instructions could be better sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Your people seem to be your best asset!

    I worked at Pinnacle Technical Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They hired me for a temporary assignment. They paid me on time. I can't think of any others.

    Cons

    It was a struggle to supply all documents needed to hire me. It was a struggle to be input into their payroll system. It was a struggle to get a desk at my assignment location, and I ended up intervening. It was impossible to get feedback. Despite my pleas, after a while the site manager never assigned me any work. When I raised the issue after being accused of it being my fault (despite many emails and phone calls that went ignored), I was laid off. Stay away, especially if the assignment is with Anthem.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know what the job is about. Make sure you know that the equipment and space is available for fulfilling the assignment. Make sure your employee has the support needed if something isn't right, like there is no work space or the employee is not receiving work assignments despite pleading with the site manager for them.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pinnacle Technical Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incentives, Company would hold lots of activities where they offered food. Young staff. Most in early to mid 20's where I worked. Even mgmt.Old would have been in your 30's.

    Cons

    High Turnover, Low Morale, Treated Employees Poorly, Inexperienced Management, Company routinely did what I would call "writeup drives"and force its mgmt to find reasons to write up each employee to pad their files in case it could be used against them later. Then when work became slow, mgmt would routinely fire people for cause finding minor mistakes and then the company would fight their unemployment. The company terminated over 20 people in one week when work got slow but found a reason to terminate them all even though they were decent and solid employees with excellent numbers. There was no job security. People worked in fear. There was a lot of stress. The company also forced us all to sign a form agreeing to take a $4 dollar pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Invest In the Employees and you won't have a 50% to 60% turnover. Treat people fairly. Cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect.

    I have been working at Pinnacle Technical Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pinnacle Group was professional, responsive, and respectful throughout the entire application and hiring process. I cannot emphasize how great it was to send an email and receive a response within minutes. Typically contractor benefits are lackluster but I see Pinnacle's as one of the best I have ever seen or heard of in my career

    Cons

    None so far that I've seen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great benefits!
