    Pros

    The Management at ERG is made up of two brilliant business men who really know the trade. They are both very supportive and provides a lot of guidance to the team. I don't know about you, but having a boss that I feel comfortable sharing my opinion, concerns, and ideas with is definitely something I consider a must have in any work environment. Both the director of operations and the president are very accessible and really make it a point to know their team personally. ERG is also composed of a great group of people. From staff to management, everyone is very supportive and friendly! There is definitely a great atmosphere here.

    Other pros to consider:
    1) You learn a lot. Great Experience.
    2) Autonomy and freedom to run your own projects. Management really encourages individuality and hard work
    3) Compensation plans for sales people - the director literally hands you a cash bonus when you make a placement
    4) Monthly staff building events - What's better than hard work? A staff event (BBQ, hiking, paint ball, Giants Game to name a few) to reward that hard work!
    5) Competition room - Ping pong table, darts, large screen TV, and a PlayStation 3 console
    6) Snacks!

    Cons

    Management puts in 110% and expects no less from his staff. It is a lot of hard work and can get pretty stressful at times. But, I haven't been at a job that isn't.

    Advice to Management

    More training is always helpful.

    Pros

    When I first started here, everyone made me feel right at home right away. Everyone is very helpful and knowledgeable... definitely experts in technology! Senior Management provides guidance and wisdom but generally lets you work autonomously. We have tons of perks... company events, free food, drinks, coffee, CASH BONUSES, competitions, great health plans, a ping pong room... etc.

    As an employee here you feel valued and that your work is making an impact.

    Cons

    None that I've seen so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I come from a sales/ recruiting background and have never seen a company come together like ERG does. Day to day issues, company policies, even company trajectory, are all discussed as a group and solved as a team. We are a tight knit bunch, but we all come from different backgrounds and excel as a team by sharing individual insights from our experience.

    Cons

    You almost don't want to go home at the end of the day!

    Pros

    Good compensation plan...that's about it.

    Cons

    Upper Management has poor ethics, poor decision making, and very bad people management skills. Some might consider this environment a very totalitarian/dictator management style. There is no guidance, nor vision working for this company. The management are very secretive and there's no guidance for new employees here. Seasoned individuals coming to this company have it the worst. No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Take some courses on proper management.

    Pros

    Friendly team; great office work ethic; commission margins are very fair; good communication between account managers and recruiters; great office location

    Cons

    The office had poor management; relationship between upper management and recruiter/account managers could be deemed hostile at times; well being of employees was very insignificant on company priorities

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to really look closely at the way they handle communication between themselves and employees. Some of the actions taken were not only not appropriate, but could be considered HR violations.
