    I have been working at Softworld full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Softworld provides recruiters with every tool out there to help each individual to hit their goals. They also give fast feedback on how you are doing so there is never a time where you are thinking, hmmm, I wonder if I am doing well enough not to get fired. When you are doing well they tell you. When you are not doing well, the immediately address the issue and try to find a solution that works for all parties involved. If you have been recruiting for a while you know that there is always more than just you in the equation.

    Cons

    Nothing worth complaining about yet.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing and keep investing in the areas you are currently investing in.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Softworld has a great training program with 4 weeks of some of the best career and personal guidance out there. The company itself is heavily invested in being as honest and straight forward with those they interact with as possible.

    -Great work environment
    -Strong opportunities for personal and professional growth
    - Comfortable and accepting atmosphere

    Cons

    There are none to speak of. The only cons that would come out of working here would be the work itself.

    Ex. If you sign up to be an accountant and you don't like accounting, it doesn't matter where you're doing it, you're going to have a poor experience there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The management is so receptive of feedback and open to providing it as well at any time of the day.

    Pros

    I was placed in an environment with wonderful people, none of them affiliated with Softworld. Acquired many professional contacts and gained some really good skills.

    Cons

    Was completely misled and lied to about the specifics of the contract and the benefits associated with it. I received poor compensation and zero pto / vacation time. Softworld claims to have grown 100% this past year but neglects to even provide a single hour of paid time off to the people making money for them. What's worse is the misinformed recruiters feeding potential candidates blatant lies. This type of unethical behavior is lawsuit worthy. Softworld is the type of company you hear about on the news that won't provide hard working people paid sick time or time off to take care of sick kids. Softworld claims to follow family values and take care of employees...my experience was the complete opposite. I will never, ever work for a company like Softworld again. They provide zero incentive to work for them and do absolutely nothing to treat their clients like family. Softworld should be ashamed to even use the word "family" to describe their business.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be trained on how government contracts operate. Once they have an understanding, train the recruiters and abide by ethical practices. Misleading potential candidates is a big no no and can lead to lawsuit.

    Pros

    They had a good 2 week training program. They spoiled you with food and snacks.

    Cons

    Quick to cut you if you don't meet their metrics or show aggressive ability to source candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Have trainees shadow a recruiter to see how success on their role would look like.
