Friendly Office
Administrative Assistant (Contract Assignment) (Former Employee) –  Iselin, NJApril 7, 2018
Schlesinger Associates was a very nice place to work. The people who work there are very nice & really pull together as a team. That being said, unfortunately management in between the office staff & upper management (CEO, CFO) really has conflict between attempting being "friends" with the office staff & then using that against people. Management gossips about their office staff/recruiters which in turn confuses upper management into wondering what's going on with morale.
Pros
Lovely Co-workers
Cons
Management conflicted

Project Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 1, 2018
Avoid, your day to day rests solely on the mood of management. Mood swings and misplaced attitudes govern the office. There's minimum communication but maximum blame to go around.
Pros
Pizza Sometimes
Cons
Ever changing policies, Severe lack of communication

Schlesinger Associates
Qualitative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 19, 2018
I really loved this job, but the management was very unappreciative of the employees. Many times they would throw their employees under the bus to cover their mistakes. Sometimes employees would over-work and do more than was expected of them, obviously requiring more of their time and leaving late at night, however management, instead of thanking employees, would become irritated that you ran their clock. The only reason employees did such things was to avoid getting "yelled" at, and make the next day easier and more efficient for the next day employees. The management did not view it as so. It was a damned if you, damned if you don't kind of environment. Very toxic. However, the VP is wonderful and kind, clients are mostly great, and job is easy to get a handle of after some training.

Miserable workplace
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 3, 2017
Principals are reluctant to create a positive work environment. Employees are disposal pieces that are overworked, overstressed and poorly compensated. Moral is consequently poor.
Pros
The few perks fail to mitigate the underlying failings
Cons
Too many to mention

RECRUITER (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 3, 2017
Currently doing a lot of company restructuring. Budget is not maintaining FT hours currently. I would not recommend anyone to work there currently given the circumstances...unless you would like part- time work.

Horrible Place
Evening Supervisor/Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 29, 2017
It is one of the wort places I have worked at. They take complete advantage of you and expect you just to deal with it. they want you to work 40 hours worth of work when you are not even scheduled to work 40 hours.

Stay Away!
Project Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 11, 2017
Here is a place you want to stay away from at all costs. This place is unethical and creates an atmosphere of tension with its politics. Upper management as in corporate and HR are only there for the project Managers not the recruiters or hourly staff. There is a high turn over rate, no reviews given annually. Project managers barely work Administative staff do all the work and they (Project Managers) get the praise. When someone stands up to Corporate about unfair wages and treatment they get fired. If I could give this company no stars I would.
Pros
Co workers are like family
Cons
Extremely high health insurance, politics, low hours, high turnover, low wages, deceitful

Worst Company EVER
Project Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 11, 2017
They kiss up to and allow Project Managers to be laxed while recruiters and admins pick up the slack. They are not about building and emphasizing team work. They'd just rather have 1 group of people doing all of the work. The pay is EXTREMELY LOW and they don't believe in giving raises quarterly or annually. More like bi-annually. Basically to sum it up, they expect lots of work for little pay and you better do it with a smile on your face. If I could give no stars, I would!
Cons
The whole company

Poor Work Environment
PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 7, 2017
There is little possibility for a work/life balance if you are a project manager. Recruiters are easier, though. Management offers no guidance or support but has unreasonable expectations on work volume and hours for salaried employees.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Environment, Management, Lack of team work

It is a great source of networking. You meet many people from different companies. It is a work at your own pace type job, as long as you get your work done. You will always have something to do.
