    I worked at Lucas Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Larger recruitment firm on path to growth. Company culture better than many other recruitment agencies. Commission/career path is decent - just make sure you can bring in clients.

    Cons

    You have to hit the ground running- very sink-or-swim environment. Not much training after the initial onboarding. As with most search firms, there is a lot of internal competition (competing against colleagues for candidates, clients, and exposure). Even though overall company culture is better than other search firms, there is still very little to no diversity at all.

    I worked at Lucas Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My teammates, relaxed office setting,

    Cons

    -Culture -Politics -The Biases that absolutely existed -The ENTITLEMENT encountered w/ recruiters & their management (not all of them were like this) Leadership I can say that I'm so glad that I no longer work for this organization. The CEO, personally- a very nice guy, seemed really down to earth, pleasant & welcoming based on my interactions with him. Suddenly, I was betrayed by him. Notice I didn't say I "feel" betrayed. I actually was. He did not keep his word. The CIO I'd never trusted based on my experience working with him as well.
