Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that you are hiring the right people. This is not a job for the weak or unmotivated. Money motivated people will thrive here if you can find them

    It's a different game than the rest of the recruiting in the USA

    I worked at Spencer Ogden full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You learn some valuable skills that may help you in another setting and that's about it. You get to kick a soccer ball around and play with baseball bats. Not really anything else that's positive here.

    Cons

    They want you to dedicate your life to them. They start you off at 30,000 salary and will give you a bump in salary to 35000 if you hit your goals in the first three months. Easier said than done. You are expected to get a minimum of 2 hours a day on the phones and just call clients and candidates and hope you stumble across someone that wants to work with you. They are a new company in the USA, huge in the UK, but don't really know how to do business in the United States. Very cut throat environment, you have to guard your work and your progress, because if you are doing good or someone else is, everyone else wants in on what that person has. People complain all the time and have to hide it when me people get hired on, so they don't create a negative side for them to see, so they won't quit right away. High turnover rate. If you are called in for an interview don't believe anything they tell you these people lie for a living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to do business in the USA properly. Treat your employees with respect, and listen to what they have to say it creates a better work environment.

    I have been working at Spencer Ogden full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to fly helicopters, bounce balls.
    Lay back environment.
    The office is modern.
    The co-workers are extremely intelligent and nice.

    Cons

    Too many hours. Low Pay. No support. Cut Throat Environment. Training period is not reliable. Over time you lose hope in making a deal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school and learn how to run a business in the United States of America. This country is not the UK. Also listen to the Americans you have working for you. We can teach you how to talk to clients and actually start making profits.
