Obviously they're working towards their own interests but it is a fair point to consider when looking at offers. I took an offer that paid 20k less over another and trust me, it hurt to turn down the money, but I don't regret it one bit after hearing horror stories from friends who started working there.

I've been paid ungodly amounts and if the agency sucks, no amount of monetary compensation can make it worthwhile. Life is so much more than money.
