Company reviews
"Decent entry level experience"
Former EmployeeTechnical Recruiter
Most of the middle management team have a "bully" type of personality, so if you aren't willing to join in and take some low blows, and mix in a little racism and ageism, this might not be the place for you.

"It was fine"
Former EmployeeScientist
Not much to say it was a contract jig. There was no time off and the offered health insurance was not great. I did not have much contact with the people at the company it was just a place that my check came from

"Fun Culture"
Current EmployeeRecruiter
A great place for those who are ready to learn the business (if you are new to it) and then work. There are managers here (with 10+ years' experience) who are ready to teach you the business. There is no room for slacking, but if you don't work, you don't earn commission so that's on you anyway. If you bring a good mind combined with a good work ethic, you will succeed! Yes, you will be on the phone a LOT, it does get easier with time! There is a good balance of work and fun - company events, a company trip, and this summer we had Food Trucks, ice cream, and were able to earn 1/2 day Fridays! (which we did every Friday!)

"Really reliable, knowledgeable and straight forward with directions"
Current EmployeeRegulatory Specialist
Really professional and transparent with clients regarding the job offers. Detail-orianted and knowledgeable about the job roles and responsibilities. They provided sufficient guidance pre- and post- interviews. Really reliable!
