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

Pros

Everybody is friends! Team environment makes everyday fun. Total support system from entry level employees to upper management. Started working at entry level, grew into a management position within two monthss

Cons

management is too friendly -- great friends, but sometimes Im looking for guidance in a professional setting

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seperate yourself from the team a bit. Being familiar with your staff is OK but sometimes I want you to tell me what to do instead of letting me decide for myself

    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    you get invaluable experience from this job such as conducting interviews, selling techniques on a cold-calling door to door basis, how to run workshops in a classroom type setting etc.

    Cons

    you work 6 days/week, monday to friday is 11:00 am ( till you are promoted, then you start at 10:30 am ) , and if you have an interviw you start at 9:30, then you get back to the office at about 8:00 pm - as late at 9:00 pm. saturday is a short day ( 12-6:00 pm) , but these long work hours obviously get to you.Not sustainable. And you work Sunday's too quite often as you progress in the company to make your work-week 7 days/week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many hours. 100 percent commission is cruel.

    Pros

    They have a positive culture which is energizing, fun, and engaging. The work load given is just enough to remain challenged without feeling overwhelmed.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is confusion as to who is responsible for certain members of the sales teams. This makes accountability a bit of a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to delegate tasks to responsible employees below you.
