    Options to work remote, good company culture and work/life balance, CEO is very open with communication to employees, there is opportunity for monthly, quarterly and annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Quality of management is not consistent across different accounts, resulting in the lack of guidance, structure and opportunities for success. Base salary is not very competitive.

    I worked at WilsonHCG full-time

    Pros

    -Working from home -Good pay for the city I am in

    Cons

    Upper management is dishonest and is hard to read through. Your manager and team leads will act like they have your back and will praise you through your team wide group chats but this can be very misleading. It will seem like they want you there at first but won't follow up with you on your performance until its too late and you'll just be let go. I just felt like I couldn't trust them and that I couldn't be transparent with how I was doing. They expect you to preform and deliver numbers before you're even fully trained which was about a week of training for me. By week two I had to know the ATS like the back of my hand and have done an outreach of 125-150 people before I fully understood the candidate profile or clients needs. You will also be asked to participate in "anonymous" surveys through out the month. Not optional, they will know if you didn't submit it. Very numbers driven- they won't give you an extra week to redeem yourself even if you have done things that prove your loyalty to the company I was also really surprised to see well seasoned, senior recruiters that had been with the company for 4+ years being laid off during Covid. They kept people that were there for a few months but laid off their long standing employees. That spoke volumes to me. Metrics are unrealistic- they don't care about your quality candidates even if the client is extremely happy with your placements. If you are not hitting your target of submittals you're out, despite submitting good people. Management will say that you don't have effective time management but with everything they make you do, especially if you are full desk, you have poor work life balance, working into nights and weekends and God forbid you mark that as overtime because they expect you to finish everything in your work week otherwise, you have "poor time management"

    I have been working at WilsonHCG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I think the reason I have been at WilsonHCG mostly boils down to the fact that the management truly cares about the future not only of the company but for their employees. For me, I have found leadership to be so enhancing to my career which is something I have never had before. I am now in a new opportunity that I would have never found if I didn't have mentorship and guidance from various managers. On this token, I have never worked somewhere where the CEO knows your name and takes his time to come out of his office and communicate with the office. John is so open to any feedback and wants the company to grow and be the best it can be, this is so apparent in the way he leads. I love the culture of the office, although we have a large number of virtual employees, you can tell when it comes to hiring, we have really focused on great people and everything else can be trained. I genuinely enjoy coming into the office and seeing everyone. As far as other pros - I would say work/life balance is there if you work hard and get your job done. Amazing office, great culture, fun job. A lot of communication and collaboration across all regions. I cannot wait to see the future and where WilsonHCG goes! I am so privileged to be apart of it.

    Cons

    I think the biggest con is just since we have so many virtual employees, a lot of times you don't get to know people and/or what they do. I think we just have to keep up with other offices consistently and make sure to get virtual employees to participate in various things so that they feel apart of the organization.
