Pros

I worked at CRC for about a year and a half. I worked in business development. For someone with very little sales experience- it is a great way to work with some successful salespeople and learn hands on what works in this industry. You really have no limit to what you can earn and and what you make of your time here- you can sit around and make peanuts or really develop your rolodex and be on meetings and assisting in important court cases. For sales- the skills are transferable so if you are looking to get started, I highly recommend it. Although- there are some older sales members who have really made a career at CRC too! There is minimal 'hand-holding' in sales- for me and others this was great- we were able to draft our own sales emails, and really market ourselves and CRC as if it was our own little business. It is also great to see how a small business works- and you are able to wear several different hats. We all made suggestions to management for sales tools that they then invested in. You definitely have a voice here. There are also committee's so even for someone who is working in sales, or operations, you can see how the company develops its marketing decisions for example. Like others said, it is also a very cool old townhouse near Dupont in DC- its easy to get to by the red, orange and blue line. I was paid quite fairly here as well. Sales staff makes commission in addition to salary and from what I know of other salespeople in DC, its really market rate for the area. Again- commission will vary on your performance and I know myself and my colleagues have had very lucrative periods when you develop a relationship with a good firm. Also- two casual days a week!

Cons

If you need strict direction in sales-there is not as much of that at Capital- like I said, there is not a lot of hand holding; however, help and advice is always available to you if you ask for it... there is a great open door policy to get advice and training to better yourself, and continual education and growth is encouraged.

It is a small company- and I know some people do not like having to help in other areas outside their job description. If you are not a team player- you may not fit in here. We all pitch in to clean up the front, prepare for emergencies, and help one another out when we are swamped (such as sales picking up the phones when the operations team is in an all hands meeting). I like this aspect of small business, so it was a pro for me, but some people may consider this a con in their job hunt.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! It was a great place to grow and learn and I had a great time there with some awesome co-workers and managers... had I wanted to stay in sales, I would probably still be there!

    Pros

    I started working at CRC about a year after college, and since then I have grown expediently both personally and professionally. Since my first day at Capital, there is not a day that goes by where I do not feel challenged or pushed, whether it’s figuring something out in my job or stepping outside my comfort zone in my personal life. The executive team here at Capital, including the owners, do a very good at pushing you to help you grow in your career. You get what you put into it, and if you are looking for a place to explore various career paths this is the place to do it. As far as the environment, Capital Reporting Company is a very young office filled with great people who I have made lasting friendships with. Capital puts a great deal of trust into their employees, and gives a lot of responsibility that you would never be given at other companies.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work that needs to be done, but if you are up for a challenge, this is the place to be!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate and push your employees

    Pros

    -The people - most people outside of management are young, ambitious, and fun to work with

    -Career opportunities - most people that can bare working here for 1-2 years are awarded favorable positions at different companies - you can make your experience look good on your resume

    Cons

    -Ethics - I would bet my bottom dollar that the positive reviews before this one were directed by management. During my tenure, employees were asked to write positive reviews of the company online. Management likely discovered the first two negative reviews, and acted swiftly to cover up poor publicity

    -Work environment - employees are scrupulously micro-managed, harassed, and scapegoated by management

    -Nature of the work - the work is not intellectually stimulating. The entire company's operation is basically administrative work, there are virtually no opportunities to implement strategy, analysis, or higher order thinking. All employees (besides management) are also asked to pick up trash outside the building, including dead rodents, according to a rotational schedule

    -Low salary - Entry level employees are typically paid salaries in the high 30Ks - what I would call minimum wage for college educated professionals. Furthermore, the standard daily hours for all employees are 8am - 5:30pm with a half an hour lunch break (no exceptions!). There is absolutely no flexibility in the workday and very little vacation time. Have a doctors appt? That will cost you two hours of vacation

    -Contractual agreements - employees are typically not awarded raises unless they sign legally binding one year contracts that require you to give 60-90 days notice before leaving the company
