    Pros

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to do this job and make incredible money. It's truly a "street smarts" kind of role, both for recruiters and account executives. Close knit teams, for the most part. Large organization with access to millions of candidates and a large team of recruiters, massive upside for sales reps that are promising to deliver to clients. Fairly well known in the tech world, previously Sapphire which helps for recognition as well. One of the largest firms in the world. International capabilities. Cross-selling amongst various resource needs, several branches within company with their own specialty, helps for enterprise customer growth. Solutions division of 30+ years, good story to tell for c-level and CIOs (project based work). Competitive commission plan. Metrics are fairly easy to hit, especially after first year. Incentives through trips and prizes happen regularly, pretty cool give-aways overall. Opportunities to move within the company, encourage management growth and travel, especially for recruiters.

    Cons

    Base salary is low, not competitive, truly an incentive based company (commissions should always outweigh base if you're doing OK). Minimal training, "see if it sticks" culture. Very report/process driven, this is both good and bad. However, for sales rep it's mostly bad. Compliance and paperwork can be overwhelming and time consuming, where clients should be focus. Minimal office admin support, though I would assume most companies have this problem. No inside sales support, no proper lead generation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would encourage branches to run their offices as separate company, small culture vibe. Keep it fun and have your own contests/incentives. From large scale (top down) it's hard to impact, but more importantly appreciate reps/recruiters that have done great things. Create inside sales organization to generate leads. Or assign existing staff members to take on these tasks to encourage consistent new business. Successful offices tend to rely on existing customers and lose sight of new clientele. Have team contests with incentives that are realistic and given in real-time! (happy hour after call blitz, order dinner for staying late, top 3 reps with most hits receive a half day or gift card, etc).
