I have been working at Eliassen Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

They will push for your development, so everyone receives training to keep their career moving, but it's done to the preference of each individual. No forced career moves, i.e. 12 months of recruiting then immediately to sales. They would rather promote you than hire from the outside, so put the work in and you will get rewarded.

Cons

Base is low, and never increases. HR finds really good ways to get people up and running with guarantees, and I took a big cut in base when I came on board but ended up making more in the end with the comp plan. Still, seeing the number is a shock at first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course. I've worked at other firms, and they don't compare to Eliassen Group.

    I have been working at Eliassen Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They don't try to lead you on with what the company is or isn't. I was never under any illusion about my relationship with them. I was basically there to make hours and I was compensated for it.

    Cons

    They have no loyalty and not much above standard benefits package. Their sales folks tend to be a little myopic and so sometimes the sales pipeline was skinny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Eliassen Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Outstanding compensation program geared to make you money. Senior team of folks with outstanding tenure and reputations in the business to continue to learn from. Very open to promotion from within.

    Cons

    There's always going to be growing pains as an organization. I believe that's where 99% of the frustrations with the organization come from. If someone is not being held accountable in their role it's hard for those that are to keep over looking it. Ensure the right people are in the right roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to empower your leaders, that's something you do very well!
