    I have been working at The Execu|Search Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would never have been successful had it not been for the training and support I received from my team. They made sure I was set up for success from the second I started. You get exactly what you put into the job. Love working here!

    Cons

    Hours can be long, however, you see the effort of the time you put in given back to you times ten!

    I worked at The Execu|Search Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and a lot of motivated, young colleagues . A lot of support across business lines. Leadership is supportive and approachable.

    Cons

    Margins, money, earnings, above all mentality. This is reaffirmed from Senior Leadership down. Everything, including the commision structure, is based off how much money you can make off each person who is working/generating revenue. If you are currently working with execu-search for a job opening, know that the "max rate" they quoted you is a complete farse and based off set margins they have to abide by.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the the people who are paying your bills. Whether they are Temp, Temp-to-Perm, or Perm, understand that u you will never achieve company goals without recognizing and rewarding the people who are in the trenches, making money for you.

    I have been working at The Execu|Search Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is what you make of it. The more effort you put in towards building relationships with clients/staffing managers, the more money you will make and the more you will move up. No cookie-cutter days is a huge plus.

    Cons

    I've heard that some higher-level people micromanage and absolutely obliterate morale. 401k match would also be nice to have but really can't complain when a company gives you every opportunity to make a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just make someone a manager because they've been here 3+ years and you feel the need to give them more responsibilities. It will destroy the team for years to come because current employees will not reach their potential and I promise you people will leave ONLY because of this. Seen it happen a handful of times.

    I worked at The Execu|Search Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young environment, team members and lower level management are great to work with.

    Cons

    Partners of the company only care about metrics and will always let you know. you will be treated as a number and based off how much money you make the company. A good majority of the employees have been there one year or less and there is a good reason for it, most are fired as soon as they stop producing numbers, or end up quitting. Encouraged to pressure candidates into taking temp jobs at all cost, if they do not accept you will hear about it... pressured to work extremely long hours (12 hour days) and to work through lunch. no work life balance. myself and my co workers were fearful of being fired on a daily basis. It is all about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at all. Dealing with the people at the Parsippany location was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.

    Horrible experience, cares nothing about the employees, low pay

    Pros

    Technology makes it easy to work from home, decent benefits for an agency

    Cons

    They say that they aren’t metric driven, but that isn’t true at all. They love phone stats and care a lot about how many calls you are making, regardless of how good your results are. Also, there is a ton of miscommunication between management.

    Quality clients and frequent assignments, short gaps between assignments

    Cons

    If you are looking for temp to perm or perm you will get stuck in stuck in a loop of temps due to the agency charging client companies high fees to buy you out.

    fun coworkers
    summer Fridays
    nothing else

    Cons

    horrible partners
    cheap on everything
    bad technology
    no life balance
    chairmans is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should care more about your employees instead of phone stats. This place is horrible. By far the worst place to work, they do not care about you at all. The locums division in particular is horrible, Kyle one of the partners is so rude, and does not know what he's doing. I would not recommend working for these thieves. Avoid at all costs. The turnover rate is so incredibly high with this place for a reason! They always are hiring because they can't keep employees.

    Pros

    Accounting Team is amazing. The CFO is one of the best persons I've ever worked for, and would do anything to answer a question or have time to help you complete your task at hand. The main three directors are some of the best colleagues anyone could ask for.

    Cons

    The top of the line management (partners) are not some of the best people to work for. It is strictly a business to them and could not care for a minute about anything besides the money.
