    I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I started working with Reaction Search International right out of college with no recruiting experience. The company has an excellent training process that will give you all the tools necessary to be successful. A very rewarding environment with lots of growth potential. I worked with Project Managers that carefully took the time to train me so that I will be able to manage a team under me. Work hard, play hard.

    Cons

    No concerns with the company at the moment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    training for time management for employees will be very helpful in this environment.

    Pros

    They rent out of a nice office area

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Poor management. It's a husband and wife shop. Their kid comes by. The husband "ceo" is an arrogant fool. Belittles employees. Pay is bad. No significant raise.

    Executive search business is can be up and down
    If you do not have solid sales skills or the ability to learn fast this business is not for you.
    Big money is made on straight commission

    Continue to implement the project management application Base camp; it is producing great results.

    OK for students with no recruitment experience

    I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent paid internships for college students. Starting salary for recent college grads is in the industry's average for the East Bay and small bumps in salary are possible, based on performance. Good opportunity to learn about the recruitment industry. Incentive trip for full-time recruiters who meet annual revenue goal. Casual dress code. Located in a nice business park.

    Cons

    Contrary to what it's name suggests, this company does not have international operations. This is a family owned business where the "management team" is one man in just one office. Because the organization is so small, there is zero room for growth - but they will always say the sky is the limit. Commissions and bonuses are below industry average. No training program. Lack of professionalism from management, often emotional, gossiping and talking behind other people's back.

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Great Benefits
    Outstanding Leadership
    One of the best places to work in the East Bay!

    This company is driven to succeed and has been doing so for years. I watched it grow from a start-up to one of the fastest growing companies in the East Bay. Even today they are delivering quality service at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Service Fees are high, but so is the quality of work. This is one of those companies that will go above and beyond to service the client. They take your calls day or night and have a can-do attitude. I have seen them take on some of the most challenging searches you can imagine and they came through with flying colors!

    Nothing really negative to say about this company. QUALITY!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've been a success for a long time, and there is no reason that should change! You are fair to your employees and expect greatness from them... and they deliver!

    Pros

    - The company provides lots of support but doesn't micromanage,

    - Ongoing training provided
    - Collaborate work environment

    Cons

    The recruiting business is not easy, so the work itself can be challenging. But RSI is the best in the business, and if anyone can do it, they can!
