    I have been working at Verigent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Verigent is a large company that still takes time to treat its employees like family - from supporting a mission trip to Kenya to celebrating additions to families. The President is very open about the goals and direction of the company to help ensure we are working together to reach it. I have a lot of autonomy to do my job the way I want to, while at the same time being held accountable to deadlines. That mix is perfect for me and many others here because it lets my skills and style make me the most effective I can be. I've also been continually challenged here - no two days are alike for me and I am continually learning new things which makes it fun to come to work every day!

    Cons

    As with many companies, we have had our share of growing pains. Developing new processes and procedures and implementing them can be very challenging. Change is often not meet with the most open of minds and that has been probably one of the biggest hurdles to overcome - and while I feel that we have come a long way, as we continue to grow, that will be an area we will need to keep in focus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. I feel you are listening to your employees and have implemented a lot of ideas brought from them. When hard decisions need to be made, and they will be, continue to do them with the same caring and thoughtfulness you have. I appreciate that they have shared that with us in the past and feel they will continue to do so in the future.

    I worked at Verigent full-time

    Pros

    There are a few really nice people at this company. You can tell they care about their employees, just don't have the resources to treat them right.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional. No processes or structure in place. Very disorganized. Little to no job training provided. Employees are grossly underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Outline a more structured career path and do a better job of letting employees know how valuable they are. Not just by telling them, but showing them.

    I worked at Verigent full-time

    Pros

    Good environment of people, but upper management is very shady. The people are very nice, but a lot of them dont know what they are doing. Best thing is the weekly pay check

    Cons

    Salary was awful. Living pay check to pay check. It got to a point where they changed the entire commission structure and that was awful. Overall shady management and the application jobscience essentially made recruiters responsible for the entire HR process as well. They work laborer jobs that 85% of applicants dont show up for and. Only thing worse than Jobscience is having to work a 1/2 day unskilled labor req only for the candidate to not show up the next day...

    Advice to Management

    Pay fair wages, allow for better commission structure, hire capable recruiters, allow them to do their work in a non micro-manged environment, and for gods sake...GET RID OF JOBSCIENCE....ITS AWFUL!!

    Pros

    The dress code is fair.

    Cons

    Horrible place to work. Everyone is overworked and underpaid. Management has a "sink or swim" mentality. There is no diversity in this place AND everything is just organized chaos. They do not take into consideration their values and neither does it reflect on their employees. STAY FAR AWAY IF POSSIBLE.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire minorities if you plan to discriminate against them.

    Pros

    Great place nice people. I have no problems with the job or any of the people that supervised me at Verigent.

    Cons

    Job was meaningless at times. It was a lot of the same thing day in and day out but it was good to just zone out while doing it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. The things I didn't like were just how work ends up being sometime. I doubt there is anything to do about it.

    Pros

    A good day at Verigent is when the people that micro manage it out of the office.

    Cons

    Wow...where do I begin, first the pay is definitely a low ball...you do so much work in the payroll department but get paid way less than its worth.
    The overwhelming micro-management makes the work environment stressful. If you are not the supervisors pet, you will get the worse bulk of the work load. The atmosphere there is toxic, and discriminating, anyone of OTHER as a race want make it long. You will see this soon as you walk, through the door (lack of diversity) . If you are looking for a diverse work environment, room to grow, and peace of mind in your next job...this is not it.

    Advice to Management

    Put your mico-management in check. Stop letting them push employees out the door. Also when employees are term, quit etc. Stop bashing their names in the ground (discrediting their job performance) to the rest of the dept. they may have friends that still work there and it does get back to them. Very back stabbing place to work...

    I worked at Verigent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    company is growing and adding multiple offices. comp plan is competitive and benefits are decent

    Cons

    company is moving away from Telecommunications and wanting to shift more into the Information Technology space. Does not have the experienced delivery team to handle these types of requirements. New management team has been put into place and already starting to see things be excessively micro-managed

    Advice to Management

    stop counting the number of phone calls made per day. meetings, number of reqs and starts are what really counts.

    Verigent is a very supportive company with great values. Everyone wants to see you succeed. I learned a lot about recruiting and sales. My skill set really developed in my time at here. I felt comfortable speaking and working with everyone.

    Cons

    Clear communication of promotions for employees is helpful!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the Verigent Values.

    I worked at Verigent full-time

    Pros

    Good entry-level job if you want to get into staffing as a recruiter, not a place to stay long-term. I know several people that only made it a couple months and then went on to get paid 20-25% more to do the same job elsewhere. Weekly pay is the biggest (only) plus.

    Cons

    Wow, where to begin. Firstly, the company culture is toxic at all levels. Recruiters are miserable, sales people are miserable, HR and admin staff are miserable. Overall, it is a very dead-end job. There is a lack of appreciation from the top-down for the little guys that do all the work. I could go on, but pay, management, and culture are bad. Additionally, everything is micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your roots - adding senior management and ignoring tenured staff is not the best way to grow. Additionally, stand by the values of appreciation and honesty. Address the turnover problems head-on.

    Pros

    Verigent sincerely cares about its employees, both internal and external. Management takes time to listen to their employees, is consistently looking for ways to improve the organization and has created an environment that focuses on coaching and developing employees. The culture is great and the opportunities to grow and develop professionally definitely exists, including moving into new roles and to new markets. This is an exciting time to be part of Verigent!

    Cons

    As we grow there have been and will continue to be a lot of changes to processes, systems and structure. Change can be challenging if someone's resistant, however if you embrace it and understand it's necessary to sustain growth, then it's really of no concern.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people who are in alignment with our core values and want to succeed with a truly awesome company.
