    I have been working at The Forum Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Forum helps you to accomplish your best. The professional and positive guidance is what makes Forum employees successful. The commission structure is good and provides the incentive to be productive. Employee training and advanced technology offer the needed tools.

    Cons

    Cubicles are nice, but I would appreciate more privacy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive reinforcement and congenial work environment.

    I worked at The Forum Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Forum for many years. It is the type of place you can establish a long term career. There are many well established relationships that have been developed over many, many years in business. The environment is not high pressure. I always felt a sense of ownership of my business with tremendous support when needed. I would recommend working there if you are serious about being successful and have the work ethic to make it happen.

    Cons

    Could be a little more casual. Jeans one Friday a month can be increased.

    Advice to Management

    Summer Fridays would be nice.

    I worked two long term assignments through Forum. My experience has been very positive. My recruiter is honest, responsive and helpful. Can't ask for anything more.

    Cons

    None, very happy with the relationship

    Advice to Management

    Pat your IT team on the back; they are great.

    Pros

    Extraordinary recruiters, who are thorough and honest.

    Cons

    Some downsides for those looking for employment may be that of mostly temporary opportunities. However, my advice would be to hang in there...and The Forum Group will get you through.

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The agents are very professional and mindful of your time and circumstances. Went above and beyond to ensure I got a great job.

    Cons

    Salary and health benefits needed improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are the best.

    Pros

    You won't find another agency with a more supportive management network. They truly want you to succeed and are more than happy to consult with any employee who needs guidance. My manager's goal is not to manage me, but to guide me to a place where I am my own boss. In recruiting, that should be the goal for anyone. I recommend Forum to anyone who has enough dedication and work ethic to build a business and run a full-desk.

    Cons

    All negative reviews on this firm must be taken with a grain of salt, as most people writing reviews at all are ex-employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Forum Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the employees were great too work with and I did build some great relationships. Other than the employees there are not any other pros I can think of.

    Cons

    They think it's 1995 as they do not evolve with the times. They do not even have an electronic application for candidates to fill out. They use old systems and policies that are not with current times. There is no room to grow within the organization and the owners do not realize that they are where there are today because of the employees that dedicate there lives to the business.

    Advice to Management

    Karma is not fun but what goes around comes around and I do not think they will be around in3-5 years.
