    I have been working at CG Commercial Finance full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth in both promotion and skills acquired. The management is stable and many have been here for 7+ years. They are open to new ideas and very supportive/encouraging. The offices are conveniently located and have fantastic views. The president is very funny and has a great team spirit. The CEO is hands-on and contributes a lot to the success of the company.

    Cons

    Some days are long but they are flexible with our schedules
    Benefits are basic and there is no pension

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider a monthly staff meeting to ensure clear communication. Sometimes it's harder than it should be to keep current with on-going developments/deals.

    Sometimes scalability is sacrificed for expediency but they are open to change which is very unusual

    I worked at CG Commercial Finance

    Pros

    Nice building and location, some good people work there.

    Cons

    Everything about it from their quotas to micro-managing you.

    It's all telesales, cold calling an outdated lead sheet without any formal training.

  6. "Best Place to Work to Learn the True Art of Negotiating and Financing"

    Pros

    Great open door policy. Upper Management wants you to succeed and enjoys teaching the finer points of lease financing. If you enjoy learning the art of negotiating where everyone wins, this is the place to work.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative things to say about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work in teaching and showing how lease financing can benefit everyone involved.

    Pros

    Some talented employees, bit o' training, free snacks, free parking.
    Small opportunities.

    Cons

    Warped, disingenuous, seriously dysfunctional management team.
    Scary leadership, would absolutely listen to other postings and perform thorough due diligence before joining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Nice office with amazing views. Free coffee and snacks

    Cons

    These are the type of people that hire good people, but never listen to anything they have to say. They honestly think they know everything so there is no point in giving your opinion. Run background checks on all the key players including the owners-- use their full names. Once you find out this information you will never want to work for these guys--it could ruin your reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You already think you know everything so there is no point in telling you.
