    Pros

    Really enjoy working at SO. Its a good company and I have learned so much since joining. I work in the Houston main office and it is an amazing team to be on.

    I feel like when I interviewed for this job I had no idea what it REALLY entailed, but I knew I wanted to be successful and that I wanted to work in this environment. When I look back now I realize how inexperienced I was - and I can also see how far I've come.

    I have learned so many business skills, have seen huge professional development, and I really love my job.

    Your manager will work along side of you and give you direction, but also allow you to learn and make mistakes develop your own sales techniques. It is very much a team environment, but as an individual you can control your own career progression as well.

    We have a good vacation allowance that we are encouraged to take, 100% healthcare coverage, fun office incentives, good commissions, off at 3 on Fridays.

    Cons

    I mean, there are cons with any job. I would have to say that probably the most difficult thing about this job is managing your time and letting your friends and family know that you are going to be grinding it out for a few months. Hours are a bit longer when you first start, but it calms down. There is also a lower base starting off that most other recruitment companies, but commissions are better (so its ends up paying off better)

    The other con is the downtown location of the office - but that is just for me since I drive further than most. Houston traffic is crazy everywhere though so, thats to be expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work - from my first conversation with the Internal hiring manager (who sold me the job) to my current director I have felt supported and motivated. Keep the sense of unity and teamwork even as the business is going to grow.

    I worked at Spencer Ogden

    Pros

    Downtown Location
    Young

    I have nothing else

    Cons

    There is no organization whatsoever. There is a huge gap of understanding and lack of communication between departments which is odd because it's an open office. Outdated technology and broken equipment. Human Resources is a joke and does nothing and the rest of admin is unreliable and unprepared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management? This place is chaos.
