Bad bad and worse

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA (US)

I worked at Reaction Search International full-time for less than a year

ProsThey rent out of a nice office area

ConsToxic 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

OK for students with no recruitment experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Ramon, CA (US)

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

ProsDecent 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.

ConsContrary 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

One Solid Company

Senior Project Director (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA (US)

I worked at Reaction Search International full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat 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.

ConsService 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work with unlimited potential and a great culture!

Senior Project Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- The company provides lots of support but doesn't micromanage,
- Lots of opportunity to personal, professional, and monetary growth
- Ongoing training provided
- Collaborate work environment

ConsThe 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!
