    Pros

    They find a job very quickly

    Cons

    Don't trust what they tell you (pay is being held low and increases promised but never done) althought it was ensured for months, no responses to emails for weeks, no interest in yourself but the companies they work for is the only thing that counts, they are not interested in yourself or support of any kind, if you start questioning they will make sure to take you away from a job, don't trust them
