    I have been working at Populus Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Populus Group was recently voted as one of the best place to work in Washington by the Puget Sound Business Journal and I couldn't agree more! The culture at Populus Group is second to none, and is what every company says they have but don't deliver.

    Management is focused on your professional development and encourages you to go to seminars or training to better yourself. To make it better Populus Group provides you with a training budget and will pay for these seminars! A lot of employees have little to no experience when they come to Populus Group but management and coworkers are always very supportive and understanding when you make a mistake. A lot of my coworkers including myself have been promoted to a new position within 6 months to a year. The company is growing really fast so there is always advancement opportunities open.

    Populus Group also offers some great benefits! One of my favorite is the Treat Yourself Fund, which allows you to expense items like a vacation or a massage to name a few. The benefits are medical benefits are cheap and heavily subsidized by Populus Group. Populus Group also offers a 401K which they DO match!

    Cons

    Technology is a little outdated

    Advice to Management

    Keeping doing what you are doing to make everyone better!
