    I worked at The Oakleaf Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flex Scheduling, Company paid lunches

    Cons

    No longer Flex scheduling . All amenities have been dissolved.
    No reward for hard work. No advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees more like actual people and less like robots.

    I worked at The Oakleaf Group full-time

    Pros

    Allows you to work from home. Decent Benefits. Offers company matched 401k plans

    Cons

    Expectations are unrealistic. Management expects the employees to work files, some having 2,500 pages in 3. 5 hours while maintaining quality. If you don't meet their goal, you will get a nasty email without them even looking into the file to see why it took a long time to review. Additionally, Human resources didn't advise me that I don't get paid for holidays until AFTER I was hired and started the job.

    Advice to Management

    Before you send nasty emails pressuring employees for high production, look at the file first. Treat all of the employees, in and out of the office with the same level of respect regardless of the color of their skin.

    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time

    Pros

    The president seems like a nice guy who cares about his business, and he's very knowledgeable about the industry.
    The pay is good and this is one of the few companies who will take you as a W2, 1099 or corp-to-corp. The recruiter has control, and you can negotiate basically anything with him.
    If you do a good job for your client, there's a lot of opportunity to work long term or even get hired on there.
    A lot of good coworkers who know how to be consultants.

    Cons

    No one in management cares about the employees. It's a really small company, and yet they can't even seem to get my name right. Ever. There's no engagement from management (what little management there is), and no respect.
    Management does not follow through on promises, suggestions, etc.
    No W2 last time around (still waiting this time), and no HR department to fix it. No real internal structure.
    There's a lot of turnover. Most of the really good people leave or get let go.

    Advice to Management

    You're not a consulting firm, but pretty good as a staffing/temp agency. Develop a business model as a staffing company, and you won't have to address a lot of the issues you have right now as a wannabe consulting firm, because expectations are so much different/lower from an temp agency than an employer.

    Pros

    They allow for great flexibility and control.

    Cons

    There is no business model. Management considers itself a consulting firm, when it really is a staffing firm.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a focus for the company and stick with it. You can't be everything to all people.
