    Pros

    The Lions provides a unique opportunity for youthful and ambitious sales professionals to be part of a entrepreneurial dreams and use their talents and creative energy to directly contribute to the growth of a innovative, early stage start-up. The transparent management creates a work environment where all opinions are valued and the group can caucus about ever changing policies while also collaborating and perfecting the overall mission of the company. It's unique ability to encourage personal growth and performance while also maintaing a united team, is forward thinking, modern and embodies the start-up culture in every sense of the word.

    Cons

    Because The Lions is still establishing it's identity in the recruitment industry and working to overcome the typical stigmas against traditional recruitment methods, some of the systems are not set in stone. Although this is a positive in many ways, it can also provide challenges when road blocks present themselves and team members struggle to find the best approach with out a default uniform systematic process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to address the team as a whole but look carefully at each individual style and when trying to encourage, motivate or constructively criticize, tailor your approach to that you are speaking into each person's listening.

    Pros

    Great startup atmosphere. Entirely new concept for a combination of think tank and recruiting firm. Awesome to harness data on majority of sales people and the companies that employ(ed) them to provide benchmarking data to the industry. Fun, yet professional environment. Great events and parties. Weekly poker tournaments! Equity into the firm.

    Cons

    The same struggles as with any startup - sometimes the structure of the company can be confusing, and while we do have health benefits, I'd like to see 401k and other benefits eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely happy with management - no complaints at all.

    Pros

    Smart and driven team and management. Working hard to innovate in a meaningful way in an otherwise stale, traditional business. Located in a very cool office in downtown San Francisco. Management really cares about all of the company's stakeholders -- clients, employees, and partners.

    Cons

    The company is small at this point, despite their grand ambitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working hard to match your vision for The Lions.
