I worked at The Jacobson Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAdvancement opportunities available for those that are on the inside. Above average market pay, fun reward trips.The company has done a solid job of staying in their lane and staying solidly focused on one industry. Flexible options are sometimes available for those with company tenure.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep driving strategic growth.

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