I was really excited to to join the team at Celerity. They were acquired by a French company that was then acquired by an international company - unfortunately this led to massive layoffs. They were down in business substantially last year which led to these changes. Now is probably not a good time to join.

I have worked for this company for over a year. I have been treated with the utmost respect and speaking with your company liaison manager is very easy. I always feel as though I have support and the work life balance is great.
This company made promises to the employees of the company that they purchased and did not follow through with those promises. They moved the employees from an office to working at home and required that the employees purchase equipment in order to complete their jobs. Some employees bought new laptops and then were laid off before being converted over to the Celerity system.
After Celerity slowed down the job was a Hit or Missed situation due to the layoffs. A typical day in the clean room went by fast because it was exciting to work with different cultures and learn new information about the job. The hardest part about the job is when we had to work everyday when we failed behind in work because it was hard to keep up when the quality of work wasn't there due to people being tired of working six to seven days a week.

This company allowed me to push myself by not taking the standard solution but to find alternate routes / out of the box solutions. No limits on testing 3rd party applications or introducing new into their corporate enviornment
Fun learning experience, benefits, friendly environment
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – April 7, 2014
Celerity recruiting is does not have much structure, which allows the more experienced recruiters to succeed easily. I would recommend the job to anybody with a good grasp of recruiting because the opportunity is huge. The training is light and allows the incoming recruiter to form their own methods to accomplish daily tasks. The company as a whole is extremely friendly and promotes a work hard/play hard mentality. We had happy hours every Friday and often were able to speak with the CEO at any time.
Friendly, Benefits/Salary, Good amount of business
Lack of in-depth training, difficult metrics to meet
