      Pros

      -Temp, temp to hire, direct hire roles - A good way to get your foot in the door

      Cons

      -Lowball your pay - They are more client focused than caring about the individuals they are working with(there should be a balance) -They are not quick like they used to be with placement. A lot of lag and no concern, unless you have your CPA. -Minimal benefits only after a long period of time working. - Pay to experience ratio is not great( a good example is them wanting to keep you at x amount per hour, even though you have ample qualifications for a higher paying role. OR presenting you at x amount per hour even though you have the qualifications to be presented for a position that pays more) -not very competitive pay rates
