    I worked at Bowdoin Group full-time

    Pros

    They trust in their employees and give them a lot of freedom to put business together. They don't watch the clock and provide flexibility with things like hours. The CEO/Owner is driven and cares about the business. He is very honest and straight forward and that can be seen in the employees that work there.

    Cons

    Expectations are high which is not a bad thing. They will support you but at the end of the day you have to do the work. They give you all the tools but with that type of flexibility comes the opportunity to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Believe in your strategy and fight through the tough times in the beginning.
