    I have been working at Thor Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot think of any at this time... disappointing all around.

    Cons

    Recruiters tell you one thing and the job is totally different, no benefits, shady hiring processes...

    I started working and found out employees working on the same team were able to get benefits and PTO through another contracting company AND their pay was better. Additionally, I feel like I am not valued at all and wonder how this company has employees at all. Such a bad experience. I hope my review can save others from falling for this trap of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees - would you let your friends or family work for you? Doubtful.

    Pros

    Terrific management team. Absolutely adhers to the highest ethical standards. Maintains one of the largest, most comprehensive job seeker databases in the I.T. Consulting industry. Provides an abundance of candidate sourcing options. Operates an aggressive candidate job match & marketing program. Provides an unmatched combination of Consulting Sales training programs and frequent Strategy Sales sessions. Management makes every effort to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to deliver solutions of true value to their clients.

    Cons

    Thor trys to deliver both Consulting and Staffing services to its clients. The company would benefit by remaining focused on Consulting and declining to engage in staff placement business.

    Advice to Management

    Split sales teams into two groups: 1. Geographic Centered Team; 2. Industry Centered Team

    Pros

    What it takes to run a small business. But other than that, there's not a whole lot of pros in this company.

    Cons

    We now have meetings every day of the week that takes 1-3 hours per day. Right now terry is hiring a lot of people offshore. And he's using us who still work in the office, to train them on how to do our jobs. My job has already been outsourced. He is also not listening to the employees that are here in the office. Also, if you are working 40 hours a week, you do not get any sick days.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell terry to listen to the employees he has in the United States, and to stop outsourcing our jobs because it's not helping the economy.

    Pros

    You'll get your foot in the door, but that's about it.

    Cons

    Terry micro-manages everything. He doesn't trust his employees to get the job done without him guiding you through it. He makes you work on the same projects over and over again because he doesn't know what he wants.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do a good job. Don't talk behind other employee's back saying they don't know how to do their job, especially with the sales representatives. Don't treat your employees badly, especially those that have stuck around for more than a year.

    "Horrible Management, Horrible Practices"

    Pros

    Formerly a leader in the field; Thor has committed to the infrastructure needed to be a part of the Healthcare Recruiting field

    Cons

    Management demands excessive hours, pay is dependent on impossible standards. Management is abusive to staff. Insults are part of the "motivation." Pay for performance is not legitimate.

    Advice to Management

    Commitment to staff will help much more than constant turnover and re-training. Some old school methods are valid, but management styles have changed since the 1970s.

    Pros

    work from home, that is about it.

    Cons

    Will do anything to make a buck, have employees break non-competes, If you don't kiss the CEO ass good luck. if you are in for a CEO calling at all times day night weekends to waste your time because he has no personal life and does not respect anyone that does then maybe this is the place for you.
