    I have been working at Softworld (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company with great people. The people at Softworld treat each other with respect, work hard and want to be here, which makes for a great environment to work in. Softworld is a growing company with a lot of opportunity. They look out for the best interest of their clients, consultants and co-workers. Would highly recommend working here.

    Cons

    The cost of family benefits are high, but it's great coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've grown the company to where it is now and we trust that the decisions you make will allow the company to continue doing so.

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

    Pros

    I work in the DC area supporting a government contract and have had a great experience. The crew in the DC office has a deep understanding of government contracting and makes sure you know exactly what you are getting into and signing up for. They seem to have great empathy as they were able to understand my concerns without me really bringing them up. They did not pressure me (which happens a lot with other companies) to join the company. They did not try to "sell" me on their position. In fact, they pointed out both pros and cons/potential risks of the position, which I appreciated. The pay well and on time (as long as your time is approved).

    They are a company that cares about their people and takes care of them. I'm happy I took their call!

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. They will reimburse for certifications, but only if the contract requires it.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to lower the cost of the benefits. Increase and expand training budget.

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

    Pros

    Softworld provides a level playing field for all recruiters and sales professionals to achieve their maximum success. Unlike many other companies in the industry, there is room for many recruiting and sales styles at Softworld. Your success is truly what matters. It is a growing company, with new opportunities presented OFTEN for those who are career-driven and want to make their mark here.

    Cons

    Hard to think of any to be honest. Some of the requirements you will see can be very challenging but that's what makes each day exciting, and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recruiters at Softworld are collaboration oriented. Whether it be on individual searches or on larger scale methodologies, recruiters put their heads together to solve problems. When things are extra busy, recruiters ban together to motivate each other and to get things done. From their efforts, team members are often noticed and upward career trajectory is encouraged for those who show interest. At Softworld, recruiters are given a career path and opportunity to succeed.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a slow-pace day where everything is the same, no surprises, this might not be a match.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster personnel development and opportunities for those who are driven to advance.

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

    Pros

    I was approached by Softworld to support a DoD/Intel customer; Softworld is a subcontractor on this contract. From the first call from the recruiter to dealing with Account Manager/PM, and the Director, I've had a 1st class experience. They are completely transparent with updates, feedback, etc, and address all concerns in a timely matter. I also received a healthy pay increase to join this contract. So, in summary, they pay well, they run a great office in the DC area, know their customers and contracts extremely well, and seem to always be available to speak with and address concerns. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive for a family. They seem to make it up with higher pay though. They do not offer much paid training (certifications, etc), but do offer to reimburse from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    If all of your offices have people like the folks in DC, don't change a thing. Other than that, it would help you if you offered more paid training to your people billing on contracts.

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

    Pros

    This is a company on the rise. Lots of opportunity as a recruiter. Tons of great positions to work on and lots of room for advancement. There have been a number of promotions since I have been here. Recruiters are treated as equals with the sales team.

    Management is very engaged and involved with the business. I feel like I can go to my manager or any manager in the company for help. I have weekly meetings with my manager, monthly training, and even monthly meetings with my VP! All of these are focused on training and getting better at my job. My last company I maybe talked to my VP twice a year. Here he will actually jump in and help me with a search! I have learned more here this year than the rest of my career combined.

    I'm also making more money than any other job I've had.

    Cons

    The company has grown so fast that it looks like we are out of space. They just expanded the office but it looks like that filled up pretty fast. Feels cramped at times but it's not that big of a deal.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything! I love it here. Maybe work on the office space but really I am more concerned with having good reqs to work on. There are plenty of those!

    - Expectations and processes are clearly defined
    - Company responds quickly to requests and concerns

    Please try to find me something once my current project is complete. Seems to be a challenge for most companies.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have grown from a small start up environment where we had to figure things out to now a fully established corporation with solid policies and procedures which ensures competitive advantage in a super competitive industry. Our ability to service our client's IT needs starts with our internal SLA's with our team of 30+ technical recruiters. Our sales team is seasoned with strong client relationships. Softworld's working environment is truly a team atmosphere where everyone is happy to help one another. With over 300 employees companywide, Softworld successfully competes with the top firms on a national basis, yet is still small and nimble in being able to get things done without red tape or obstacles. Softworld has been a great place to grow and be challenged for the past 16 years. I truly enjoy the job and the great people I get to work with.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. Management is engaging and supportive with strong core values. Compensation and benefits are also very good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The short and long term vision and strategies are solid and sharing them with the team keeps the team motivated and working towards tangible goals.

    I have been working at Softworld as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been contracting through Softworld for over 10 years. With recruiters and management that encourage personal growth, Softworld is a company that is as honest and professional as you can get. Their industry knowledge is top notch and their staff is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone looking to augment their staff with the skilled resources that get the job done!

    Cons

    No cons to speak of

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    None. They recruit for jobs that don't exist. They lie and lie and lie. They are totally unethical.

    Cons

    They recruit for jobs that don't exist. They are totally unethical and screw with people's lives to meet their own twisted agendas. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH SOFTWORLD.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes! YOU ARE UNETHICAL TO THE NTH DEGREE! HOW LONG DO YOU THINK YOUR company can continue to exist with the way you recruit for jobs that do not exist????
