    Pros

    Small company feel, however, has the resources of the 2nd largest staffing firm in the world.
    Opportunities for personal and professional growth within Randstad and Think Resources.
    Executive Leadership team that is dedicated to developing their employees.
    Able to communicate ideas and be heard regarding processes and tools.
    Clear performance expectations consistently communicated to you.

    Cons

    Recruting can be difficult. You must be willing to possess a "whatever it takes" attitude to be successful at Think Resources (or in any sales/recruting role elsewhere). Think Resources used to be a small company so as it evolves employees should take into consideration that some changes take time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. Because of the Executive Leadership Team think is an amazing place to work!!

    Pros

    Good contacts within the industry. Have some of the best IT tools available to make our jobs easier. Working on continuous improvement to the company over the past year. Implementing many good ideas to improve the company and who we do things.

    Cons

    Rigid work schedule but has been lightened up some in the past year. Too focused on numbers that sometimes don't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving processes and tools and employees will gain a better ownership of their process. Focus on monthly numbers not daily numbers so employees don't feel threatened.

    Pros

    Money...if you are a good cold call salesperson ... with no scrupples.
    Steady job if you are very good.
    Very little travel required.

    Cons

    Oppression as an employee.
    Poor treatment of the employees.
    Inexperienced middle management.
    The promises in the interview verge on lies.
    No overtime pay for many hours of overtime, but get docked pay if you take off a couple of hours to run an important errand.
    Somebody should report their practices to the labor board.
    They will harras you after you leave the company if you go to work in the same industry.
    Terrible Senior Management as well as sales and recruiting.
    Leave your morals at home.
    Dial and smile until your head pounds.
    No upward mobility other than croniesm.
    It's better to stay on unemployment than work for this company!
    Those people at Randstadt have no ideal what they are doing if they continue to let this senior management staff lose their investors money.

    Advice to Management

    To Ranstadt...Get somebody to run this company who actually understands the recruiting industry!
    Get somebody to manage the recruiting group who is a good people manager.

    Pros

    You really do control your own destiny and if you are a good recruiter, you will do well. If you plan on being a rectuiter long tem though, make sure you keep a bok of business of clients for when you leave.

    Cons

    There is virtually no upward mobility. If you enjoy recruiting you can make a very good living but if not and you want to become a unit manager, your chances are extremely slim. Even promotion to Senior Recruiter means little more than a nameplate and possibly your own office - along with higher expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the people that get it done for you and don't nitpick and have the secretary write down names of those out a minute or two early every day. This is going to get you know where as a company. Instead reward those that really do well. Also, more upward mobility would be great. There should be more unit managers with several (3-5) recruiters under them. This way there will be more accountability and a stronger desire to rise to the upper ranks of the company.

    Pros

    It's a small company which means that IF your personality meshes well with the personality of the "my-way-or-the-highway" owner then you'll flourish. You'll gain a Rolodex of contacts in other companies throughout the country to leverage your next career move or entrepreneurial venture.

    Cons

    It's a small company which means that IF your personality does NOT mesh well with the personality of the "my-way-or-the-highway" owner then you'll go nowhere. Cronyism and low pay are the order of day. Consistent communication is a challenge. From 8am to 5pm your every move will be watched down to your keystrokes and mouse clicks. If you enjoy big brother watching over your shoulder then you'll enjoy Think Resources.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them with respect.

    Pros

    The opportunity to develop relationships at all levels with Fortune 500 - 1000 oil, gas and utility companies within the energy sector. The fulfillment of assisting people finding jobs, increasing their salaries and the relationships you develop with internal and external clients.

    Cons

    The downsides are limited opportunity for promotion. The senior leadership is very "closed" and doesn't communicate effectively with "all" the employees about important issues that are relelvant to the employees. In addition, numerous operational process issues reoccur on a regular basis. Employees in the field have great suggetions to eleviate many of these issues. However, 90 percent of the employee suggestions fall on death ears.

    Advice to Management

    Emlpoyees will give 200 percent f they percieve leadership cares and listens to their input. Internal positions should be advertised to all employees.

    Company culture has gone under tremendous positive change. Leadership is open to ideas of employees.

    Need more out the box recruiting methods. Too dependent on internal database to fill positions and do not have other means to source candidates

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on improving culture and continue to research ways to make recruiting efforts effective and efficient.
