    Pros

    - Good work life balance especially for an agency - Junior recruiters are taught solid technical recruitment skills, boolean search and have supporting recruitment tools to be successful -management works with you to improve skill set and deepen searches. Managers and seniors will help you learn and provide opportunities if you show willingness to adapt and respect for your team members. -fun team events and outings

    Cons

    -metrics driven and expected to continuously improve, but if you don't like this, don't be a recruiter. That's the nature of the business, including corporate.

    Advice to Management

    -keep leveraging individuals strengths in a positive and supportive manner -keep training employees on recruitment Fundamentals that will set them up for a successful career in recruitment. -continue to show compassion and support -keep doing employee events, they're super fun!

      Cons

      Very fast-paced environment. Priorities can change on a dime depending on the needs of clients and where the biggest opportunities lie.You need to work with urgency at all times. Everything always needs to be done yesterday.

      Advice to Management

      Keep the interaction with the employees daily. Its nice to see management work hard and play hard at the same time.

      I worked at TAL Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great location and lots of jobs to work on. You can get some good experience if you're junior and want to learn more about IT

      Cons

      There is a lot of micromanagement even though they don't think so. A lot of pressure to hit your numbers and sometimes that affects the real focus which is to fill jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Try to listen more to your employees and learn how to trust them, you won't regret it. Offer more opportunities for career advancement.
