I have been a recruiter for almost 20 years, the bulk of which has been on the external agency side. I have worked for agencies of all shapes and sizes. The big firm churn and burn, let's bring in 20 new recruiters and hopefully 2 will make it at least 6 months, style. The small 5 person shop run by the big producer who assumed he would, of course, be a strong manager and yet his firm has 100% turnover every year because he isn't, in fact, a good manager.
