Don't work here!!!
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Frisco, TXApril 11, 2017
This company is owned by IBM now but during my tenure, it was run and operated by those in PA and had no concept of how to run RPO. No one was ever compensated fairly and there was never any room for advancement unless someone died or left.

Well, Kenexa was acquired by IBM. That was rough on our culture, we had great employees and leaders and as soon as bonuses were paid most of the executive leaders left and so did many employees.
Pros
Great Leaders and employees

Acquisition was painful

Good work life balance low pay and almost no commissions/bonus
Senior Recruiter (Current Employee) –  remoteJanuary 18, 2017
Although the culture and work life balance is great, the pay is extremely low even for market value. Also, commissions/bonus are almost non existent and now with restructuring, it will be more difficult.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
Little room to grow, salary growth and commissions/bonus almost non-existent even for high preforming teams.

It was an OK place to work, but it was acquired by IBM by the time I entered into the company and it was actually better place than going to the acquiring company.

Project Coordinator/HR (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSJune 17, 2016
Overall, a very tough job - rehiring employees from Boeing. It was crazy busy, but they got the job done. I didn't have much time to get to know a lot of people, but helping employees transfer into the new Spirit company was fun.

It was a fair place to work at
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMay 4, 2015
It was a fair place to work at. But the company was bought out by a large Software group. The raises came very few unless you were hired for a new position. The management ran the group as if we were grade school students.
Pros
Good insurance
Cons
To many childish rules, reminded me of grade school.

Great job other than compensation
Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Frisco, TexasJanuary 15, 2015
There is work life balance in the remote positions. They do make sure teams are a good fit. Strong relationships built. In office politics can make advancement difficult if you are not in the click. Hard work, longevity, and dedication does not pay off financially and advancement for the whole is very difficult.
Pros
Work life balance, great teams, fast paced.
Cons
Salary and advancement opportunities.
