    I have been working at The CSI Companies full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    "work hard, play hard" - hard work doesn't go unnoticed, and health is a high priority here. With a gym, personal trainer, yoga instructor, running coach, and other outlets to improve your health are always at your finger tips, which is SO important in your work life. Fun & motivating (and competitive) work environment too! We spend a lot of time here, so we are like family. As long as you have a good work ethic and...

    Cons

    Staffing in general is not a 9-5 lifestyle, so always working, BUT it is rewarding! CSI appreciates a work/life balance and is flexible and accommodating.

    I worked at The CSI Companies for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefit plan on a consultant level

    Cons

    Dice toss on recruiter follow-up post hire and/or project completion

    Advice to Management

    Have recruiters in a loop to trade off consultants for gigs rather than a single recruiter that may not be in their "specialty" and cannot follow up on project end.

    I have been working at The CSI Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location of office. Peers are nice and trying to make a difference. Nice Gym.

    Cons

    My managers remind me of college cheerleaders. And the COO I guess that is his title is a guy acts more he’s in mid life crisis mode than a leader. Weird.

    Advice to Management

    and they have nice perks but some in mgmt needs to grow up to be a leader and not a frat boy or girl.

    Pros

    CSI takes a holistic approach to ensuring people are the priority. As leaders in the "People Business", CSI clearly makes a daily efforts to look inward first, providing tools to succeed and encouraging a healthy work environment, taking into consideration the well being of each individual. Happy, healthy people creates a productive environment. That mindset is clearly stated and easy to feel when walking through the...

    Cons

    Cons are relative to ones own perspective. Perhaps I drink the hypothetical Koolaid, or perhaps it's just that great at CSI. Never hurts to find out for yourself. From where I sit, no cons to mention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Small and large gestures are noticed and appreciated and help drive the well oiled machine that we are.

    I worked at The CSI Companies full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I’ve met some wonderful people & learned a lot many years ago. I will always be grateful for that & they are the reason I was able to give 2 stars. I also know the sales and recruiting staff is great, and does right by the clients and candidates.

    Cons

    The company has changed drastically. It used to be a ‘work hard, play hard’ environment, where you put in the hours but you learned a lot and had great incentives to close good business. It has since become all about the money and as an employee I felt like just a number. Each year they gave you a “go get em” speech and “be patient for success” and “if you just buy in with us, you’ll be rewarded.” My direct boss changed...

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the good ol days, treat every level of employee with respect, and follow through with those go get em speeches that you give to your employees. I bought in, I was ready to keep working hard for you, and none of it mattered. The best companies make all of their employees feel valued, not just the ones who make them gobs of money.

    I worked at The CSI Companies full-time

    Pros

    Positive company-culture Coworkers feel like family On-site incentives i.e. gym, free bagels in the morning, happy hours Charity programs Team building exercises

    Cons

    Stress level - for the most part, the internal positions do not have much stress unless a big project is underway. But when the water gets hot it feels like no one is capable of handling the heat. Work-Life balance becomes non-existent. Long hours at the office just to play catch up on things that could have been prevented if people upstairs weren't trying to save their margin. Management - a lot of times I've been...

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a more professional, streamlined, and accountable managing system in place. Disciplinary action needs to be in steps and with regular follow-ups in the form of quarterly or yearly reviews. Firing people just because its a good time and that worker was a weak performer is a real moral drainer. There is a common factor regarding a certain weakness in internal management. I am hoping she has improved...

    "HR Rep"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at The CSI Companies full-time

      Pros

      They have a quick turn around time for placing temp employees with clients.

      Cons

      It is difficult to get recruiters to contact you regarding issues or questions. They also tend to drop you once temporary contract is over.

      Pros

      Great, high-energy work environment. Very competitive and fast-paced.

      Cons

      Very little management involvement which is great for self-starters, but also no coaching involved when improvements need to be made. Resulting in unexpected lay-offs.

      Pros

      Have some good companies as clients so possibly good opportunities

      Cons

      Terrible pay. Definitely not enough to live on. The only reason I stayed was the possible to be hired perm. It seems to be their norm.
