    I have been working at Andiamo Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Andiamo is the people you get to work with and the support you get. There is a positive vibe in the office. We make jokes and have fun while working hard. They aren't micromanagers and we get to do our job the way we want but there is always someone to help you out if you need it. You have to work hard but the days go by fast. If you're competitive but are a nice person you'll like it here...

    I worked at Andiamo Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked for Andiamo in Austin for 2 years. I joined right after college and was immediately given responsibility, autonomy, and the latitude to make my day my own. The ramp up to learning how to converse with software engineers can be tough, but Andiamo's Management is with you every step of the way. I was able to ask questions when I had them, but also was encouraged to figure out my own way to solve problems. I worked...

    Cons

    Be ready to work hard and keep yourself accountable. Andiamo truly lets you forge your own path. For those that need more external accountability or don't thrive in a commission-based environment, then this is not for you. But if you want to work hard and get rewarded for it both in career growth and in compensation, then Andiamo will be a great fit.

    Advice to Management

    I am so grateful for the experience and friendships I made while at Andiamo. I appreciate Management being approachable and caring. Keep rewarding the ones who hard work and have positive attitudes. Those two qualities are what make Andiamo an amazing place to work.

    I have been working at Andiamo Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked for a number of recruitment firms in the industry. There is no firm out there that recruits the way Andiamo does. There is no management style in recruitment that allows for you to have autonomy to be a success in whatever way you deem to be a success. Most firms will say, succeed and we will give you your autonomy, only to be given further detrimental restraints that inhibit your ability to know what would...

    Cons

    The intial training regime can seem mundane, but no one throws you into a pool without asking if you need a flotation device first. If you need more, they will give you more. There is no con I have raised at work that they were not open to discussing and 99% of the time we have always reached a fair resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Love you guys, keep on fighting the good fight.

    "Not what it seems"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Andiamo Partners full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Free food, generous vacation leave and work from home policy, and some fun events. Some genuine and smart people in management level positions.

      Cons

      College grads: run away. This is not a recruiting job, this is fundamentally a sales and commission job. Be suspicious of the low base salary. The nature of the job was entirely misrepresented to me and the hiring class I joined with (90% of whom left within two years) and I believe the interview and offer process was purposefully deceptive. They lie about the turnover rate--this place is churn and burn. They prey on...

      Advice to Management

      Be upfront about the nature of the job. Many people are great recruiters and great salespeople, but it's a waste of your time to try to cover up the true nature of the job. Just come right out and say it; some people love sales and will thrive here. The others will be completely miserable. It's not in the company's best interest to hire anyone other than true sales recruiters. Forget about padding your website with degrees...

      I worked at Andiamo Partners full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      I worked at Andiamo for almost 3 years. In that time, I experienced tremendous growth, both personally and professionally. I was given all the tools that any good recruiter could want and the only limitations that was placed on me were self-imposed. I made great friends and embarked upon an extremely rewarding career. I feel extremely grateful for the opportunity and would counsel any recent grad to jump at the opportunity...

      Cons

      Once a person starts to manage accounts, it can be difficult for the accounts to get the attention they need in the presence of the larger, more established and profitable accounts in place. It is difficult to be the sole recruiter on an account for a long time.

      Advice to Management

      Focus more on managing the expectations of your employees - often times the decision on how things will be handled in the future is intentionally kicked down the road. This inevitably leads to conflicting expectations between all parties involved. Try to emphasize that decisions are made based on merit - this will help you avoid the perception that management plays favorites, which is a terribly destructive mentality...

      I worked at Andiamo Partners for more than a year

      Pros

      When I was searching for my first job out of college, I had a few hard criteria: I wanted to work with co-workers that pushed me intellectually, yet celebrated each other’s success. I wanted to work for management that cared about my professional development. I wanted a job where I could learn from my superiors, yet I didn’t want to just be a cog in a machine. I wanted to make an impact. I can whole-heartedly say that...

      Cons

      As mentioned, the recruiting industry is not easy. It can wear you down if you do not remain positive. This being said, Andiamo did an excellent job of creating a supportive environment for these moments that test your mettle.

      Advice to Management

      The culture and work environment at Andiamo sets it apart from competitors within the industry. There was never a day that I woke up and truly dreaded going to work. As Andiamo continues to grow, try to maintain the positive, tight-knit, and supportive culture that you have fostered. Also, Andiamo does an excellent job of hiring smart and ambitious employees. Keep thinking of fun and innovative ways to motivate employees...

      Pros

      I accepted a recruiting position with Andiamo right when I graduated college. I was extremely nervous about my first job out of college, because I had heard so many negative things from friends who had graduated and I had it set in my mind that my experience wouldn't be any different. I couldn't have been more wrong. I didn't know much about recruiting before I accepted the position. I was a college athlete and my...

      Cons

      I can't think of any cons about Andiamo. I will say recruiting can be a frustrating industry because you are working with people and people are unpredictable, but that is why I think problem solving is an important part of the job.

      Advice to Management

      I just want to thank y'all for the guidance you gave me during my two years at Andiamo. I was always given the tools to succeed and truly believe I worked with the best people in the business. My only advice is as Andiamo continues to grow in size, continue making yourselves accessible to recruiters and continue making an effort to know all of your employees. It had a very positive impact on my experience at Andiamo.

      Pros

      There was always free food. They have a flexible work from home policy.

      Cons

      Everything about this company was disorganized from the moment I began. The interview process gives you an unrealistic view of the company. They lie to potential employees just like they lie to clients and job candidates. For most of the training process I was left to stare at my computer. It didn't get much better from there. Anyone who tells you recruiting is difficult is either lying to you or has never done hard...

      Advice to Management

      Some of those in leadership positions do a good job. It was always refreshing to get to work with those employees. However, there are way too many employees in leadership who abuse their positions and a few who are downright rude to anyone they deem 'unworthy'. The cattiness in the office of some employees was frankly disgusting. The exclusion of certain employees from conversations reminded me of middle school. It...
