It's a career all about building relationships and helping people. What more could you want?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

Pros-Set your own schedule (of course you still need to work but you can decide when)
-The relationships you get to build with your clients are so rewarding
-Great upward opportunity with a growing company which also means income is unlimited too
-You can complete control over you career
-You have license to be creative with your practice and take on any new initiatives you want
-Exposure to new ideas and support from people all across the company and at all levels

Cons-It does take hard work; you have to take ownership of your career.
-It takes a lot of commitment especially in the beginning so the flexibility in schedule can be distracting to some.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think they do a great job of balancing supervision and independence. A lot of times it's really up to the employee to make sure they are working hard which is how it should be!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
