    I have been working at Crawford Communications Group full-time

    Pros

    Crawford Group is a breath of fresh air! I have worked for similar companies in the past and did not have a great experience. Crawford Group is truly a people focused business. They treat their clients and employees very well. They keep their business fresh and implement new ideas to stay current within the industry. This has been my favorite position I have ever had. Great pay, great employees, great work/life balance, great core values, and positive atmosphere!

    Cons

    I do not have any complaints!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company, keep it up!!!

    I have been working at Crawford Communications Group

    Pros

    Crawford Group really focuses on MarComm and Event work. As a MarComm consultant, I have been placed on many projects through Crawford Group (with some GREAT Bay Area technology companies). I like the teams, how they communicate with the consultants and the added learning programs they host for us.

    Cons

    I have not run into any cons.

    I have been working at Crawford Communications Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely or from home, which provides great flexibility and work life balance. Upper management is supportive and encouraging without micromanaging. Despite having many people working remotely, Crawford has a great company culture and I feel connected with my co-workers no matter where I am working.

    Cons

    PTO structure could be improved, perhaps with a floating holiday or one or two more days off per year. More opportunity for growth within the company, or at least a projection of how your current position could evolve would be a great addition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! I appreciate that management considers consultants schedules and making sure we have enough work but not too much on our plates.

    I have been working at Crawford Communications Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The team I have worked with for years are highly capable and skilled event and marketing consultants. Always willing to help each other as availability goes up and down. Finding my own projects in the past with our clients has allowed me to continue to be successful and work continuously with clients that I enjoy. You can tell that the clients trust the team at Crawford Group and invest in the legacy their team brings to the table.

    Cons

    Provide referral bonuses to bring in new business

    Pros

    The team at Crawford Group is the most supportive team I've ever worked with. Everyone encourages each other in a positive way and has high ethical standards. It's the first job I've ever worked where I genuinely like everyone that works there. I know everyone is great at their job and open and honest communication is encouraged. There is also a lot of flexibility and positive praise for a job well done. I see nothing but bright things in the future for Crawford Group.

    Cons

    No cons that I can see.

    Pros

    A low paying and impersonally managed contract position if very desperate..

    Cons

    HUGE EGO of Owner President
    GREEDY MARGINS/profits-less for contractor.
    Lack of employer loyalty when project ends.
    Poor reputation of many mediocre contractors-since pay is low/quality is low.

    Internal co environment caddy, petty, hen peckers and an overbearing egotistical owner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Karma will catch up with you very soon.

    You have a lot of people very angry with you!

    Close down the business.
