    Pros

    Great colleague's and direct manager to work for. Working remote is great, decent benefits.

    Client's one of the most difficult to deal with. Compensation not the greatest, very low raise, no room for growth remotely. Constant restructure, not very motivated by the future here.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to look at long term vision, as opposed to short term vision. Need to have proper forecasting for long term.

    Pros

    Good training and support at first.

    Cons

    Lots of disappointment from candidates and clients. The staffing industry is just brutal if you haven't been in it before. Managers expect the world from employees. Very hard to get lots of commission as they promise you should be getting. Base salary is low.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with your employees if they are producing good candidates

    Pros

    Easy interview, can take lunch whenever you want, and free parking.

    Cons

    Management/lead cares more about hitting quotas than you personally. To them you are just another employee, dispensable. Lots of micromanagement, little to no freedom. Can feel suffocating with the amount of meetings you have to attend (75% of these meetings are pointless) and with manager breathing down your neck.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful to employees, treat everyone fairly and equally. Bottom line be nice to employees and treat them like you care about them, maybe that way the turnover wouldn’t be so high.
