Fun place to work
JR. INVESTIGATIVE ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Marietta, GAOctober 29, 2018
The environment is fun and nice. The work can be tedious and challenging, sometimes overwhelming
Requires some over time. The benefits are great. The people are nice as well.

Great People to work with
Infrastructure Engineer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 29, 2018
Sterling has a great group of competent and skilled people to work with. Their infrastructure is old and outdated and poor infrastructure decisions from the past makes it difficult to improve the environment. There are regularly scheduled maintenance windows available to do the work needed to improve the environment and infrastructure, but too many obstacles prevent progress from happening.
Pros
Great People
Cons
Poor infrastructure

Just keeps going downhill
Researcher (Current Employee) –  Independence, OHSeptember 27, 2018
I worked for a company that was "acquired" by Sterling, giving us more stress, low pay, shorter breaks (with no compensation for the extra 40 hours' work per year they get from us), more expensive insurance that covers nothing, and lots and lots of big talk from corporate that's just a bunch of corporate babble. The technology is substandard, with constant computer issues that interfere with your work. They "fix" things by making changes that make no sense, and make things even harder than they were before. The communication from leadership is HORRIBLE; manuals are always out of date, changes in processes are told to a couple people who are in the "in" group and then conveniently not told to anyone else. And if you're in the US, you are second fiddle to the people in the Mumbai office. Most of the communication from corporate is their constant rearranging of positions and announcing a that yet another person is leaving the company. Even the CEO left. Turnover is ridiculous, with people who started all bright and excited getting discouraged and disgusted and leaving for a better job. The only thing that keeps the few long-timers here is the people, who by and large are wonderful and keep things going. The lower-level managers are good, working really hard with no recognition, while upper management have drunk the corporate Kool-Aid and they're not really interested in anything having to do with the actual work.
Pros
the people, donut day, occasional pizza
Cons
stress, illogical atmosphere, low pay

Terrible Culture
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 15, 2018
No matter how many changes this company makes, the toxic work environment does not change. Upper management belittles and talks down to employees. Sales bonus payouts are never correct.
Team members in tears daily in the office. Unrealistic expectations for what can be accomplished in a timely manner.
Pros
None
Cons
Toxic environment; unequal pay

Need to restructure company and management
Director, Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 18, 2018
Growth by acquisition leads to many product versions and platforms. Most companies would build vs patch holes in a solution that is built on 15 years old technology.

Working for Sterling
Regional Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Rocklin, CAApril 4, 2018
Working at Sterling was a straightforward experience. In the sales department, you were responsible for sourcing your own business leads and this meant one thing, cold calling. Generally speaking, you can expect to make between 80-100 dials a day when first starting out, then as you build a pipeline, you'll begin tracking your sales figures and talk time. Metrics are important and every night you will be expected to send a nightly email recapping your metrics and appointments for the day to management.
Overall, very fair environment, excellent benefits and compensation plans and a crash course in the science of background screening.
Pros
Excellent Compensation
Cons
High Stress and Expectations

an OK experience
Sr. Sales Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Independence, OHJanuary 25, 2018
Overall an OK experience. The sales training program is great. They have a great company culture and atmosphere as well. Expect to make a lot of cold calls everyday, all day. If you put in the work, you can definitely get promoted and move up the ladder. People are always willing to provide you with constructive feedback on how you could improve your sales pitch which is nice.
Pros
company culture
Cons
outdated resources needed to find prospective clients (they are actively working to fix this)

Be very careful
Verification Specialist (Former Employee) –  Independence, OHNovember 30, 2017
If you are offered a position at Sterling Talent Solutions then I applaud that. I have nothing negative to say about the company, however be very careful and selective of who you confide in and talk to. Not everyone there can be trusted and not everyone will be willing to help you if you have troubles getting the work done. Its pretty much every man for themselves.
Pros
Company breakfast, Floor meeting, Holiday parties, fun things throughout the month
Cons
Very competitive

Corporate takeover changed it all
Software Development Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAAugust 31, 2017
More than a few of us left shortly after the 'merger'. Maybe it's different now. Didn't help getting 'merged' with a company from NYC backed by Goldman Sachs.

Company is on a mission to grow rapidly
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 7, 2017
Company is on a mission to grow rapidly. This means growth through acquisitions which creates opportunities for some and layoffs for others. Work / life balance is more akin to a startup company. If you are smart, driven, and hardworking then you will do well here.

Great Place to work
Sales Development Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Independence, OHJuly 13, 2017
Sterling Talent Solutions (sales department) was a great place to work. The sales atmosphere was second to none as everyone was willing to help each other out. I have nothing bad to say about this company, as my two year there was terrific.

Criminal Research Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJune 16, 2017
Being able to work independently with little to no supervision. The atmosphere is very upbeat to work in. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people within the workplace.

Hard working and good people. Culture has changed to be more bottom line focused.
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington StateApril 19, 2017
Hard working and good people. Culture has changed to be more bottom line focused.

It is definitely possible to move up the organizational ladder and gain useful experience. Company is mostly sales focused. While the benefits are pretty good, the pay is subpar.

Sad Sad company with sad culture
Sr Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Marietta, GAFebruary 27, 2017
I have nothing good to say about this biased company. I hate to realize that they do background checks. They play favorites and management looks the other way. Most people there tend to look for other employment

No life-work balance
Senior Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 18, 2017
There is absolutely no life-work balance here. On average I put in 10-12 hours a day and work on weekends just to keep my head above water.
There is no autonomy and we are micro-managed from the top down.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, very average pay, terrible benefits
