    I worked at The Remi Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Remi Group offers a wonderful work/life balance. The owner/CEO is extremely generous and approachable. The entire mgmt team values the opinions of their employees and the company is run with extreme professional integrity. Remi does a superb job at encouraging camaraderie among it staff; hosting outings, celebrating birthdays and awards, and participating in many charitable events.

    Cons

    There are no cons to report.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! The employees that work hard and care truly appreciate all you do! The way you give back in the community reflects the way the company is run from top to bottom!

    I have been working at The Remi Group full-time

    Pros

    They do have a decent time off system they have mimicked they time off system that most hospitals and health care facilities use (i.e. PEP time). I didn't realize until I left that they health care benefits really suck.

    Cons

    The management consists of a bunch of megalomaniacs. Don't listen to what their HR dept. says. They will use you and abuse you. Upper managment are a bunch of "vampires". And if you have any other place of employ I would recommend you do so. The HR dept. gets on this site to defend Remi's reputation but fact is they have a HUGE turnover. I'm sure they will make a reply about the "Vampires" comment, But ask yourself why would a company spend their resources defending themselves on this site if the didn't know know it was true! Why would they even check this site if they didn't know better. I've watched them try and figure out who is making bad comments about them and I also know who made the comments. REMI is has been wrong about who posts these comments EVERY TIME! Remi also brags about a bunch of awards DO NOT LISTEN they bought and paid for those awards. I can go to the mall and buy a MVP plauqe but that doesn't mean that the MLB will be calling me. DO NOT WORK HERE UNLESS YOU ARE COMPLETELY DESPERATE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advise is it's only a matter of time before you set off the wrong individual. And things go really wrong. I'm so thankful to have a job where I'm really appreciated and I'm no longer at Remi.

    Pros

    Good work environment. People are, for the most part, friendly and professional. Your individual contribution can greatly contribute to the growth of the company and will not go unnoticed. Senior Management is approachable.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative that you wouldn't see at any other company. I would recommend working at Remi to a friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management is doing a good job. They're not nearly as disengaged as some might think. They're dealing with issues before they become major issues. The company didn't get to this point with morons running the place.

    Pros

    The office building is nice. Owners are selling the business so hopefully new owners will have better customer service and business ethics.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs wild in this place. Managers are very unprofessional. They pride themselves on customer service but that is one thing that they lack in. The only customer service awards they win are ones that they nominate themselves for. Pretty sad customers are not nominating them. This place has the highest turnover rate I have ever seen. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hiring managers who are qualified.

    I worked at The Remi Group

    Pros

    PTO, company events / involvement

    Cons

    I don't normally like to give companies awful reviews, but people should be warned. It is pretty clear that current employees were told to write the only positive reviews on this website to entice people to work for the company. Like some of the negative reviews said, it you aren't a male and aren't buddy-buddy with senior management, you will NOT last here. There is also no HR department - if you have an HR issue to bring forward, you will be terminated. No kind of formal employee review or feedback - just managers constantly putting you down and using fear tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you value your employees and your company, managers need to be more approachable and have experience in the field in which they are managing. Just because you are good friends doesn't make them a good manager.

    I worked at The Remi Group

    Pros

    As with any bad experience, you can grow from going through it. I know now that I can go through anything because I made it through Remi.

    Cons

    Favoritism, nepotism, overall distrust, poor management, lack of ethics, unrealistic expectations, no support, no training. Even the during morale boosting events you were made to feel forced to participate. Any team building or community service was meant only for advertisement and to gain awards by upper management. All of management has poor values and no common people skills. The owner and his wife are unapproachable...at best. Management is filled with an elitist "boys club". I have overheard things that are not just worthy of a trip to HR but are actually bad enough to file a law suit. Let me also say, there is no HR department. Just please, work anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take management classes, put aside your ego and need for your way to be the only way. Make an effort to be a legitimate company that values employees as a valuable resource. Please look up the definition of "open door policy" and "your input is valuable". Perhaps stop using knee jerk reactions to deal with issues. Any of these would prove to be a game changer for this company overall.

    I have been working at The Remi Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great benefits. Fantastic work environment. Current with technology. Appreciate employee opinion/ideas. Acknowledges a job well done or going above and beyond the call of duty. Encourages continuing education. Remi is involved in several charities. Tries to recognize special occasions with employees ie. birthday celebrations, birth of a baby, weddings. Always looking for ways to improve the business and our clients to make sure they get the best customer service.

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote employee participation. Acknowledging performance. Continue to strive for the best internal/external customer service.

    Pros

    PTO, management gives a lot of gifts/bonuses on the holidays

    Cons

    This place is just awful. You can tell by the fake positive reviews on here that they obviously need to post in order to get people in to work there. It's boring mundane work for a middle man company. Salary wasn't great, the people in management have NO experience in the field in which they are working. They have lawsuits filed against them a lot, they don't tell their customers the whole truth about things because it's a shady company. The people who have been there for years and years can do whatever they want without consequence because they are close friends with the Schuster's which is the family who owns the company. So if you work there, be sure you are buddy buddy with Dan and Mardell because then no matter what you do or what people say about you, you will never get fired! Also, NO ROOM to advance. AT ALL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sucking so bad. Don't just give employees gifts and think everything is going to be okay. Some people would actually like real positive or constructive feedback.

    Flexible time; good insurance benefits; cares about their employees. Will work with you if you have a special need (family obligations, need a few hours off for a doctor's appointment).

    Cons

    None! Because Remi is so good to its people, people just want to naturally do more!

    Pros

    I've been with Remi for 5 years and as a working parent, Remi offers great PTO, generous insurance benefits, and flexibility when called to do "parent" things. It's a positive environment that fosters creativity and encourages out-of-the-box thinking. There is always room to grow, learn more, and take on more responsibility.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons for Remi, other than the increased traffic and congestion in the general Ballantyne area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue striving to keep employees and clients happy...keep up the great work!
