    I worked at Alliance Abroad Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Like any company, AAG has its ups and downs, and strengths and weaknesses. But overall, they are tough, and have overcome many industry challenges, remaining a leader in International Recruitment. AAG has a strong, welcoming and friendly company culture - the employees become each other's comrades and family. Looking back, I regret leaving when I did. I accepted a higher paying mid-level position at a company that lacks the spirit and zest of AAG - its not easy to find!
    In summary:
    -Wonderful culture and environment.
    -HR actively initiating employee incentives and rewards.
    -INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL opportunities! (short term).
    - Some short term domestic travel opportunities.
    -Management is flexible, highly adaptable, and open to employee ideas and initiatives.
    -Free office yoga twice a week!
    -"Happy Hour" Fridays at 4pm.
    -Fun team outings.
    -Decent benefits - PTO and health insurance.
    -Allow employees to work remotely and have flexible schedules (within reason).

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company does have a high turnover rate. The long-term growth and earning opportunities appear slim, which affects employee retention. While I was there, the company did little to address the issues with turnover, which affected employee moral and seemed to encourage more people to "jump ship". The turnover seems to happen in waves (several people leaving at around the same time) and there is little planning put into affect when a person does leave - teammates can anticipate having their workload doubled until a replacement is hired and trained, a process that is more time consuming that it needs to be.
    While the company is ambitious in the objectives that it takes on - it tends to bite off more than it can chew which can be overwhelming to employees at times, especially during the "busy season" (summer).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exercise transparency and honesty with employees about company performance and what to expect in terms of workload.
    Strategize to effectively deal with turnover issues - putting contingency plans into place when employees announce they are leaving.
    Offer career development,cross team training, growth opportunities, and incentives for loyalty.
