    I worked at The Stowe Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beer on Fridays, and an honest attempt to build a team oriented culture. It falls short though.

    Cons

    Micro-managed from the top down. Basically a staffing firm that wants to grow up, but can't get out of it's own way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the weeds and let employees do the job you hired them to do. CEO needs to separate personal relationships with a handful of the boys and treat everyone equally. It's not a frat house.

    Pros

    The transparency within the Stowe Group is both refreshing and exciting. Everyone has a clear understanding of where the company is headed and the plan to get there from the CEO to the desk.

    Cons

    Nothing specific comes to mind, it’s a high energy environment where everyone works hard – but has fun doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The growth is exciting and with growth opportunities will come up. As you identify the next crop of leadership, management training wouldn’t hurt.

    I have been working at The Stowe Group full-time

    Pros

    The executive leadership team here is very approachable, genuine and hands-on, which is hard to come by these days. Our CEO is a brilliant business man but also knows how to have a lot of fun - and goes above and beyond with all of our company events. It's very apparent that they truly care about and appreciate each and every employee, which I believe is a major reason why so many enjoy working here and have stayed loyal. They are also constantly investing money back into the organization (cutting edge technology, training, marketing, brand new office, etc) which is vital for long-term success. I highly recommend The Stowe Group to anyone looking to make a lot of money, work with great people and grow his or her career.

    Cons

    There is nothing that strikes me as a con, maybe a little more flexibility for their senior reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we continue to grow I hope the quality of people, fun events and open-door policy remains the same.

    Pros

    -Young Culture
    - Continuos sales training
    - Big Money Opportunities
    - Company Outings
    - Community Involvement/Service
    - You will learn about every company in Boston

    Cons

    - Call Center environment
    - Strict Schedule
    - Not a lot of room to be creative
    - You will learn very little about a lot of of tech
    - Low starting salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager new employees expectations (realistically) about how much money can be made in what time frame. This is an extremely difficult business and there is heavy competition. If the starting salary is low and commissions are not quickly attained, you will lose good people after 6 months.

    I have been working at The Stowe Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Stowe Group offers a real fun culture to work. We have great company outings whether that is a red sox game, party bus to Jillians, BBQ outing, Foxwoods etc. We have all the resources we need to get the job done and have some recruiting tools not used by other firms to get hard to find candidates.

    Cons

    I have been here for over a year and it felt like I have just started a few months ago. My time here as flown by and look forward to working here for years to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change a thing. There really easy to talk to and help out with any situation.

    Pros

    Great company really invested in seeing their employees grow and succeed. Management creates a "buy in" atmosphere where you are encouraged to help aim the company towards success and enjoy the satisfaction of being able to look back and see the your individual as well as the companys accomplishments.

    Cons

    None really. Its a work hard/play hard environment where you are expected to put in the work but you also get to see and enjoy the rewards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we continue to grow to continue to encourage employee input and to maintain the open door policy

    Pros

    Loved working at the Stowe Group. They really want you to be successful. The care about employees. Fun culture that works hard but also takes time out for fun and is heavily involved in lots of charities

    Cons

    None really. I loved working there but my commute was over an hour each way and need something closer to home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I heard you were moving into a new building. Best of luck on your continued growth!
