    Pros

    Great people, great work environment, and the ability to truly grow with the company!!! A company where your talents are appreciated.

    Cons

    If you're just looking for a paycheck this is not the company for you. You work hard and are recognized and rewarded for it.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work here is to get recognized and rewarded (very well) for everything that you do! The company truly believes in rewarding their associates for jobs well done whether it's a trophy or plaque at the bi-annual awards breakfast, a raise, a bonus, a shout out via email to the entire company, or a promotion. You will never feel under valued.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working here is that you are responsible for someone else's home. It's not just a job. If a pipe bursts or a tree breaks a residents window, they're going to call you first and you have to be prepared to handle those situations. Sometimes it can be stressful, but only the right people can handle the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue putting your employees first and keeping close relationships with all of us. The little things really mean a lot to us that are in the field.

    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    One of my favorite things about the companies I work for: I actually get to meet the man that started it all. Larry Connor is very involved and there is no greater feeling than shaking hands with the man who created such a successful company. The company is very regulated, numbers based, and systematic. Literally, if you follow "the Connor way", you are set up for success.

    Cons

    There are quite a few, however it is not the company. Each region may be ran a little differently. One aspect I wish was a little different was the work-life balance. You are expected a lot of the time to put in extra hours to hit numbers and do not really get compensation for it. Hitting your numbers is of course a huge reward, but you find yourself living at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just say follow the systems a bit more. Larry Connor is very intelligent and he has created a company built for success. One little step in the wrong direction creates disaster, deranging from the core values he has put in place to live by.

    Pros

    Strong culture, hiring practices, training, opportunity to be a partner, wonderful group of people, huge level of dedication, truly care about the customer

    Cons

    Short on work life balance, but they're up front about it. High expectation, high accountability, high reward and recognition. It is a great place to work for someone who really wants to get ahead and is willing to do what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More and better communication of health benefits, 401-k, etc. They are very good but more communication would be helpful.

    Pros

    Held accountable, competitive, rewarding, structured, fun, team atmosphere and work with leaders. You will succeed if you want to, don't leave it in anyone's hands but your own.

    Cons

    If you are not self motivated or goal oriented you will not be successful. No one lasts that just wants a paycheck or just goes through the motions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create some kind of mentor program for new hires so they can feel more comfortable sooner.
