    I worked at Tarsus Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly co-workers, small company where your voice can be heard.

    Cons

    More of an entry level job, no room for advancement. The tasks are tedious and you only can learn so much. The pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Better Pay

    I worked at Tarsus Group full-time

    Pros

    None to think of or mention.

    Cons

    Management only cares about bottom line and no care or respect for the employee. They treat people poorly and are demeaning

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management..Look at who runs your business units and dig a little deeper to care and ask your employees how they feel about their management they report to. Blind spots all over the place. You will get an earful!

    I have been working at Tarsus Group full-time

    Pros

    Worked there more than 10 years. Lots of growth. End up in high management. Distributors of most products. Very good value add propositions

    Cons

    Top management only look at numbers. No Care and growth that they preach . Do not keep an eye on a financial model, ending up retrenching.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. manage from the bottom up. Is not always money. Turn around staff is too high as do not care about the human factor

    I worked at Tarsus Group full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel the globe Opportunities to manage products and people Some good quality products to sell into Opportunity to work with some bright people

    Cons

    Training very dependent on who you work for Sink or swim mentality No retirement benefits and limited earning potential Salary, training and work life varies greatly depending on who and what product you work on They will take advantage (if you let them) in terms of work load and or salary negotiation

    Advice to Management

    Offer the same training and salary opportunities across all media products. Have healthy mentors and be fair in your dealings with employees.

    Pros

    Excellent Staff Senior Managers Seem to have a grasp on the Larger Picture Good Benefits Opportunities are available Good company to grow with

    Cons

    Management is Hypocritical at Times in regards to Work-life balance Salary is weary Senior Staff fails to see the results of their actions Often more competitive environment than team

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your actions and realize what you are doing. Don't just treat your employees as commodities and keep them informed. Learn to work as a team and collaborate between your units, don't just think inside the box.

    Pros

    Good office atmosphere (depending on where you sat!) Promoted teamwork, not competition Very good holiday allowance and private healthcare No micro-management Expanding and growing company Job security Expenses paid almost immediately Great product portfolio - some good choices made in their acquisitions Opportunity for personal development and to take on more responsibility

    Cons

    Experiences varied depending on who your manager was. I was very fortunate to be managed by a very supportive line manager, but other divisiuons not so much. Not so interested in the welfare of their staff Sales people didn't know their targets which makes it hard to know if you're doing well! No HR department so no health and safey at work People seen as commoidiities Not very good IT No flexibility with working hours Disparity in salaries for the same jobs in different divisions

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff more, particularly in acquisitions when the benefit of that person's experience in a particular sector could in turn benefit you Be proactive not reactive Show more awareness of health and safety Consider flexible working Look at more structured career progression against KPIs Be more honest and open with your staff

    Pros

    If you live in West London it's easy to get to, there are some really great people working there, it's a shame that every time you see them out of work hours all they do is moan about how much they hate the company and their jobs.

    Cons

    It will get you by but don't expect anyone to offer any progression in the company. If you look to the management for support you will not get it. Tarsus seems to be a company where everyone is vying to be top dog and would not let something like the success of others get in their way. The company promotes the stealing of ideas as a career progression tool and the blame culture is stronger here than anywhere I have come across.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff that actually do the job and not the middle managers who are desparate to cover their own backs.
