    I have been working at TargetCW full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The overall culture is laid back and fun, but we get stuff done. Management are very approachable. There are lots of perks including a stocked kitchen with salad/sandwich bar, gym, weekly massages, annual company retreat, and ping pong table.

    Cons

    Could have better on boarding and training. My first week I had to ask a lot of questions and figure things out. I’ve had better benefits, but at much larger companies. As we grow, I hope they improve.

    Pros

    The employees are wonderful, everyone works hard, and everyone is dedicated to the company. "Old Fashion Customer Service" is the true motto of this company!

    Cons

    So far there is nothing negative about this company. In order to get far in life you have to work hard, but Target CW recognizes the need to work hard, then play hard.

    Pros

    Great room for self and professional growth. Benefits are amazing. Open door policy. Employees are cared for. There is a high level of accountability. A lot of transparency and appreciation. There is a great work/life balance. We work hard and play even harder. Get your work done and no questions asked.

    Cons

    It is a tough industry, but life is tough. Transitioning in the HR field was a tough change, but I was able to adjust. The harder you work, the more rewarding the opportunity.

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The owner, Samer, is amazing and is always spoiling us. He has a fully stocked kitchen for all the employees to indulge in, massage's every Friday, annual Cabo retreat (all expenses paid), plus millions of other things that he does for us. The culture is awesome and it is always a very fun environment to be in. Plus, Charlie, our office dog, brings a smile to my face every day!

    Cons

    There really isn't much I can say for cons.

    Pros

    TargetCW is a great place to be! Charity events, happy hours, a gym, Cabo, massages, fully stocked kitchen and more.. It is wonderful to work for a company with a viewpoint and one that truly cares for clients. We know how to have a good time and are given the freedom to take work into our own hands. I love working here and love to work with such passionate people. I have recommended several of my friends to work for this company. It is an all around great place to be.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to stay focused when you are having so much fun!

    Keep it up :)

    Pros

    I'm still a little bit of a rookie, but I love working here. The atmosphere is like no other I have ever experienced in a professional setting. It is very laid back and open, but when serious conversations need to happen, they do. Over-the-top perks ensure that you feel like a valued member of the team. The leadership is generous and approachable. By far the top reason I am happy to be here is the caliber of people I work with. We have fun in and out of the office, while challenging one another to be our best.

    Cons

    CEO prefers Microsoft to Mac.

    Work can be monotonous at times. You have to be self-motivated enough to push through and stay hungry without letting mediocrity take over. Not a con so much as a challenge (one that might even make this the perfect place to work for the right person!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in leadership that can be delegated to and a quality training program.

    Pros

    We work very hard, but the work is rewarding because we care about doing our best for our clients and employees. There's something to be said about working with 50 colleagues who are super-high-achievers!! Our clients and employees tell us how satisfied they are with how we consistently go above and beyond for them. I work in the staffing department and though we can't place everyone in jobs (we wish we could) we do our very best to give candidates help in preparing for interviews, we give solid insight into the job and company and we LOVE to say, "Congratulations, you got the job!!!" And, personally, I love recruiting all over the country for amazing companies and I'm SO lucky to work with a rare team of recruiters who are both exceptionally good, CrAzY fUnNy, and highly ethical.

    Cons

    We're growing so fast!!! This is not necessarily a negative thing, but we are busy, busy, busy and growth takes special care to ensure that every department always maintain the same sense of urgency and "old fashioned customer service" as we did in 2010 with just a handful or people as we do now with 50+ amazing people...and growing!!

    The Staffing Dept. rocks...'nuf said.
