    Pros

    Upward mobility, competitive pay, fast paced work environment, always on the cutting edge of technology, working to put human empathy back in the role of recruiter. If you want to be push to be your best self, this is the place to work.

    If you're okay with being mediocre, this may not be the best place for you. Randstad will push you and stretch you and it's amazing to see the results, if you can mentally overcome it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to flex for millennials and their need for work life balance. It's the only way to reduce turnover in the future.
