Underpaid, questionable, ethically challenged group.
Pros: respect for those who've been in the business
Cons: no real benefits, long hours, understaffed
After being in the industry for awhile you can sense the environment. They use tactics to pull in anyone to work for very little pay. Half the recruiters are recent college grads who are willing to work for no pay then they pay those in the industry for some time. I really regret getting lured out of my old agency to work for them.
