    I have been working at WilsonHCG full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is extremely friendly and easy to get along with - work never feels like work when you enjoy what you're doing and who you're doing it with!

    Virtual work environment (outside of Tampa HQ), and flexible/open to movement.

    WilsonHCG has been awarded the Glassdoor Top 50, Best Places to Work (small/medium companies) - for a good reason!

    High growth has been constant since I started two years ago - no end in sight! This has provided immense opportunity to gain experience in all facets of the business, along with personal growth.

    Ideas are not only encouraged, but frequently implemented - WilsonHCG uses a system called VOX - it's a feedback portal with a direct line to the CEO, John - you can submit feedback and attach your name, or completely anonymously if you so choose.

    I have been with WilsonHCG since 2013 and have already experience multiple growth opportunities for my career.

    Cons

    With high growth comes a lot of change - employees must be willing to flex outside the standard job description and are really counted on to make an impact on the company.

    Improvements have been made to the compensation structure - but people will always want to earn more money! That said, the inherent benefit in how much you can learn and grow from WilsonHCG offsets the minimal pay differences from similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do what you're doing and you'll continue to have the full faith of your employees!

    We're growing rapidly, and with growth comes change. Some people might view these changes as a con.

    Pros

    WilsonHCG is very open to virtual roles, they have a competitive benefits package, their leadership is transparent and accessible. Clear ability for career growth. Fast paced. Innovative.

    Cons

    Having virtual roles can sometimes create challenges, but with the right technology, open communication and collaborative teammates it's nothing I've found to be a significant hurdle.

    Keep up the great work as we continue to grow!

    Pros

    The culture and work environment are very positive and forward thinking. Working from home is a great option if you live in an isolated area. There is a lot of emphasis on personal growth within the company and industry.

    Cons

    I have been with Wilson for 9 months and there are no cons that I can think of. This is by far the best company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    * The company hires some very talented and wonderful people
    * Virtual environment

    Cons

    I was with WHCG for several years, and by the time I put my notice in, it was a completely different company. Growing pains are understandable, but I had several different managers in just a few years-only one who offered me any professional growth. My last manager lacked compassion and professionalism. I tried to address concerns with leadership concerns, but unfortunately they chose to look the other way. There are some great leaders on the team- but most are not qualified for their roles. Recruiters are overworked. The virtual environment is oversold- when you have to work 12 hours a day to hit your goals, the virtual factor quickly becomes less appealing. This company has changed bonus and compensation structures several times (most recently fairly unattainable). They tell employees to write these wonderful reviews on Glassdoor.

     A word to all current employees- Do not stress yourself like I did, and so many other people did. Do not live to work. It's a job- when you leave, they will think nothing of you- because they don't appreciate you for who you are- only for the money you can bring in. The grass IS greener-very much so.

    Employees are snobby and cliquey, managers have their favorites and it is very obvious.

    Pros

    Being able to work from home
    Benefits are good and you get ample vacation time
    Easily able to obtain a position right out of college

    Cons

    - Not a comfortable place to grow and learn - if you are having a good week, you will be praised by the leadership team, but if you are having a bad week, you will be talked down to as if you're incompetent, or you will just simply be ignored.
    - Work/life balance is non-existent during the week (even working from home)
    - Unrealistic expectations of weekly goals
    - Average age of "managers" is around 27 - no real knowledge of why or how certain people have moved up so quickly with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people on the leadership team that are truly interested in helping all of their employees to try to become successful, instead of just picking and choosing who they like.
