Honest Company with True Values

Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than a year

ProsOne of the best reasons to work here is to get recognized and rewarded (very well) for everything that you do! The company truly believes in rewarding their associates for jobs well done whether it's a trophy or plaque at the bi-annual awards breakfast, a raise, a bonus, a shout out via email to the entire company, or a promotion. You will never feel under valued.

ConsSome of the challenges of working here is that you are responsible for someone else's home. It's not just a job. If a pipe bursts or a tree breaks a residents window, they're going to call you first and you have to be prepared to handle those situations. Sometimes it can be stressful, but only the right people can handle the position.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue putting your employees first and keeping close relationships with all of us. The little things really mean a lot to us that are in the field.

First rate organization

Senior Management (Current Employee)
Centerville, OH

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStrong culture, hiring practices, training, opportunity to be a partner, wonderful group of people, huge level of dedication, truly care about the customer

ConsShort on work life balance, but they're up front about it. High expectation, high accountability, high reward and recognition. It is a great place to work for someone who really wants to get ahead and is willing to do what it takes.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore and better communication of health benefits, 401-k, etc. They are very good but more communication would be helpful.

competitive family atmosphere

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than a year

ProsHeld accountable, competitive, rewarding, structured, fun, team atmosphere and work with leaders. You will succeed if you want to, don't leave it in anyone's hands but your own.

ConsIf you are not self motivated or goal oriented you will not be successful. No one lasts that just wants a paycheck or just goes through the motions.

It's been incredibly challenging but even more rewarding

Central Office Associate (Current Employee)
Centerville, OH

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou're surrounded by a great group of overachievers. Anyone has a chance to earn a partnership interest in the company. The company invests in its associates through training, benefits and reward and recognition. Company leaders are judged based on how well they develop people.

ConsUnlike a lot of companies, there is no room to hide at The Connor Group. If you are not a hard worker, you will be exposed.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to keep the long-term interest of the company and its associates first.

Prosgreat team environment, positive competition, benefits, reward & recognition, career advancement, managers are involved, expectations are clear

A Company Unlike Any Other

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Centerville, OH

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAfter having lived the "corporate life," The Connor Group is like a breath of fresh air. Hard work, commitment and team work are rewarded in very unique and surprising ways. While friendly competition is encouraged, it never overshadows the underlying foundation of team work or our core values.

ConsWork-life balance can be an issue - especially if you're a person driven to succeed. But this is hardly unique to The Connor Group.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep talking about our core values and providing real-life examples. It's extremely effective.

Hard Works Equals High Reward!

Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at The Connor Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe Connor Group is an outstanding company to work for. The company promotes from within, allowing anyone to move up and eventually even have part ownership! The job is very rewarding and goal focused. The best part is if you work hard, you are going to get rewarded for it. The company goes above and beyond to make sure you are recognized for what you have accomplished. They believe that people count and know how valuable the employees are to the organization.

ConsThis is not a 9 to 5... Hours can be long. At the same time though, it is sales...so that should be expected!
