    Pros

    Every day as a recruiter you are in a head-to-head competition to attract top talent, and fortunately you know definitively within 90 days whether you have beaten the competition. The impact of a recruiter is twofold: first, you can literally change the life of an individual by placing them in their dream job, and second, you can effectively change the direction and the success of a corporation with a single great hire in a key job (i.e. recruiting LeBron to your NBA team).

    Cons

    You must be responsible for your actions. Other than getting married or buying a house, few things in life have a bigger impact on an individual and their family than landing or missing out on a great job. Because of that tremendous impact, recruiters a this company find it easy to maintain a high level of excitement and commitment to excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in training and technology, although you're already doing a pretty good job at that.

    I worked at Professional Recruiter Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at a number of different search, staffing and recruiting firms. I received the best training and the fairest compensation at Professional Recruiter Associates. I, for one, observed everyone treated fairly and with respect.. I was well compensated for all work I performed, and everything owed to me was paid to me after I left the company. I left to pursue opportunities in another professional altogether. The offices were more than adequate and the technology and resources were always up-to-date.

    Cons

    .The negative reviews seem to be phony reviews written by competitors in order to gain unfair competitive advantage. Do not believe them because their motive is based upon their inability to compete in an open market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing a good job. Don't worry about those who are jealous of your success.

    Pros

    PRA is a great place to work.. The whole office is professional, intelligent, and more than willing to teach and help you succeed in the office and outside. Donald is extremely knowledgeable and If you have the fortunate opportunity to get to know him or work alongside him, it will be obvious that his #1 goal is to help others be successful. I highly recommend him and his office as a place to grow. I recently had to move back to Rhode Island because of family issues and Don was understanding and very helpful during this time. I am extremely glad I was able to spend the last 2 years working here.

    Cons

    The only complaint I have is that the office needs a painting job and it gets a bit hot. Luckily there is no strictly enforced dress code so the heat is not unbearable.

    Pros

    Great location working with a true expert within the field. Positive office environment where the boss was always willing to help and educate while still allowing individuals forge their own path. Goals were realistic as well as rewarding. Co-workers were friendly and outgoing and always supportive.

    Cons

    Office space could get warm in the summer. One employee was a little overbearing but CEO addressed it quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentive bonuses to encourage healthy competition. Consider health benefits for long term employees.

    Pros

    Don worked with me as a mentor, successful life coach and teacher. He has a true interest and concern in my personal and professional goals and desires. Working with him helped me to focus my efforts and reach the professional levels I desired.

    Cons

    You must have a good work ethic. Witness the reviews from people who criticize this employer, They had no work ethic at all. Primarily for lack of really trying, they were not successful at this job, which is challenging intellectually and requires people skills.

    Advice to Management

    HIre only really smart people. Coddle them less.

    I enjoy working in this office with everyone. People are friendly and professional. There is no micro managment but plenty of room to grow. In fact you are encouraged to pursue in the area that you are interested in.

    Cons

    I wish it is closer to where I live.
