    I worked at Randstad full-time for more than 3 years

    - Great brand name to have on your resume - Very defined expectations - Good colleagues - Management that cares in general

    Cons

    - Low paying compared to other similar agencies - Lot of work compared to what you are paid for - The bonus/commission is quarterly and negligible - Barring a couple of new offices like DT or Miss E, other offices are old and lack basic infrastructure - No perks, no maternity benefits, basic health & dental benefits after 3 months

    I worked at Randstad full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic people across the board, fun work culture, lots of networking events and gatherings, above average benefits and profit sharing plans. Middle management is great, and there are some true leaders of people on the front lines. Executive team is personable and down to earth, and actually make effort to show up at every branch. Job wise, you really do feel like you make a difference in candidates' lives. The role can be highly rewarding on a human level.

    Cons

    Compensation is fairly low for the industry and the position, so this leads to high turnover and poaching from competition. The bonus structure isn't lucrative, and can be quite convoluted. Simply put for a sales driven industry, you're not going to get rich. Since people don't stay long, it causes perpetual training and re-training. Also some of the hires are questionable and risky ie. hiring someone without any sales or recruitment experience and hoping they will pan out. If you're in a unit structure this can seriously affect your take home. There's too many meetings, hookups, conference calls, and market calls. There's only so much time during the day and week to grow business and this doesn't help.
