    I have been working at Tandem HR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At such an uncertain time like COVID, not one employee has been laid off or furloughed AND we received profit sharing eight months early. Who does that? This company does. LOVE IT!

    Cons

    Nobody is perfect but the intention is amazing.

    I worked at Tandem HR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have a great workplace dynamic, with everyone working together and generally very responsive. They ensure that you have full experience working there as an intern since they want to turn interns into full-time hires where possible. They pay for the internship is lower than maybe at other places, but it more than makes up with the experience and exposure to the full service abilities of HR. If you prove yourself, you will move up and advance in the company

    Cons

    Payment is maybe the only issue, otherwise it's a fantastic place to work.

    I worked at Tandem HR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual work environment;; Great employee engagement activities; Good benefits

    Cons

    Very Cliquey work environment. If you don't "fit in", it shows. Little or no training. An HR company does not practice what they preach. Department managers are like puppets. Internal HR needs to be more supportive to staff and not just in the way management "wants them to be." The turnover rate speaks volumes. Great talent lost because they didn't play the game. Absolutely no room for growth unless you are part of the clique.

    I worked at Tandem HR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great if you need exposure in PEOs and working with HR functions with multiple clients

    Cons

    Horrible training due to high turnover of employees with experience. Preferential treatment is a common practice there. The employee handbook is very different from the rules that are verbally set up.

    "Great Organization"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Tandem HR full-time

    Pros

    On a daily basis I get to interact and work with amazing people that make my job fun and something to look forward to everyday. In my position I am given freedom to be creative and develop projects that have the opportunity to make it all the way to the top. Our President is available and approachable and has lead our organization to a strong position in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Tandem is a small company so you have to be a doer to succeed here. You also have to be open to feedback to succeed, as Tandem's culture is becoming more and more a feedback driven one.
