  • Working from home is not for everyone (in 5 reviews)

    Pros

    Worked from home and worked from home

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long days with little pay. No work/life balance. Employees were not happy and were leaving. Bonuses were not paid fairly. I started on prescription anti-depressants until I was able to get another job. This one was causing me a lot of health problems including depression. Micromanagement/distrust was becoming the norm. Everything was tracked and I mean everything.

    Pros

    Virtual job, kudos points and ability to self manage.

    Cons

    Terrible managers that do not know how to coach or guide team. They avoid conflict, only care about their goals and are deceptive. Lack of career advancements, churn and burn.

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

    Pros

    The only pro's are it's a virtual position

    Cons

    Management does not know how to coach, guide and mentor. My manager avoided any type of conflict and it was very apparent he didn't know how to deal with quite a few situations that popped up with this new account.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring Managers who don't know how to work with people. The individual leading my particular project has no idea how to lead, coach and mentor. He's causing a lot of fear and instability with his poor management style. Many are talking about leaving.

    I have been working at WilsonHCG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a Wilson employee for over two years and couldn't be happier, to me the pay is great and great bonus opportunities. The goals are set out by our managers are realistic. The biggest advice I can say is you get out what you put into it, somethings there are late nights but it always comes rewarded with a virtual happy hour or leaving early on a Friday.

    Cons

    One thing I think that WilsonHCG can do better is training for the employees, not much internal training. Also maybe coming up with different ways to keep the virtual employees engaged in the company a little more.

    Advice to Management

    I've had a great overall experience. There has been some growing pains over the past two years but that is expected in a company that is growing like Wilson. Couldn't be happier.

    I worked at WilsonHCG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that you can work from home and you get a lot of PTO. You get to work with some solid clients, but....(see below)

    Cons

    Management over promises what they can offer to the clients. Not a big deal, until you work as a recruiter who is responsible for delivering on promises you don't make. Micromanagement has become the norm, as RMs are wanting to know where you stand on your positions and why you haven't filled a position that has already had three offers against it that have been rejected. Management always seems to go to bat for whatever the client wants, without taking any consideration to what's going on from the recruiter's point of view. Also hard to do a solid job when you get 30-40 REQs with zero support.

    Advice to Management

    More and more negative reviews have popped up and zero changes have been made. Makes you wonder how much they actually value what their recruiters do.
