    Pros

    It was a job. I had very little interaction with the management. They are really just a body-shop for filling government contracts.

    Cons

    They are really just a body-shop for filling government contracts.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure they have no need of my input. They weren't at all interested in it when I worked there.

    Pros

    Big Company. Stable. Young company to work for.

    Salary and commission is very poor compared to competitors.

    There needs to be more incentives to make people work hard. No acknowledgement.

    Pros

    Great pay and room for advancement. Management tries to promote from within. They try new ideas. The commission and benefits plans are fantastic. They have a leadership in training program that helps to groom leaders, unfortunately it hasn't been as succesful because they often overlook the day to day mentoring.

    Cons

    company got too big that they forgot about entrepreneurial approach they once had. Employees become more of a number and senior management was less approachable. The culture can become too enthusiastic about drinking and happy hours and not enough on other fun outings.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to roots of smaller and decentralized company, but keep the marketing and HR functioning as federal programs, they do a good job.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Eqquitable salary, but management tends to be secretive.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems they will hire anybody, so often mentoring is required that can interfere with job responsibilitiues.

    Advice to Management

    Making training and continuing education available would be a big plus.

    Pros

    Good People, Great Management, on the up. Sapphire will soon be Randstad Technologies and be rolling out a lot more jobs. The DC office is great

    Cons

    You have to make so many calls it gets you. There is a different approach at sales every week. Desk work...

    Advice to Management

    Great Management. I think it would be wise to only hire people that have been in recruiting and want to stay in it. The job isn't for everyone
