    I have been working at SThree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent commission scheme & it is relatively easy to get paychecks upwards of $10k, $15k, $20k+. Excellent company culture & amazing incentives.

    Cons

    Like any sales role, there are ups & downs with performance. Work/life balance is tough when you start, but once you're up & running, it improves.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent about changes & company strategies - it helps keep employees engaged.

    I have been working at SThree full-time

    Pros

    Uncapped commission so you can make a lot of money but it does take hard work. Also, the company is a good time, in and out of the office lots of fun people.

    Cons

    Little bit of an immature culture but definitely moving in the right direction. Internal systems aren't the best. Too strict about 8:00am start time, especially when people consistently work late.

    Pros

    Had a great experience with Sthree. It was my first ‘real job’ out of college so I was very pleased with the extensive training and support. I learned sales skills I will be using for the rest of my career. If you are an outgoing, smart, hardworking person looking seeking a ‘work hard play hard’ environment you will thrive!

    Cons

    Lacks diversity racially. No women at an executive-level.
