    I have been working at Populus Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PG has a unique culture and it’s true, it’s not for everybody! We value candor, transparency, and giving and receiving feedback (continuously) because we believe that’s the best way to build trust with our employees, customers and partners. I’ve been with PG over three years now and have gotten some of the most candid feedback I’ve received in my career (from both managers and peers). Yes it stunk at the time and was tough to hear, but those are the things that build character and trust. I am so grateful for this culture because you’re able to safely bring up things that bother you or share ideas that aren’t welcome in other work environments. We are really selective in our interview process because we want to make sure those who join our community value the same things. Otherwise it’s not successful for either end. Overall, love PG, its values, leadership and the community they have built.

    Cons

    If you have thin skin or lack accountability you won’t be successful here. Truly a rewarding culture if you’re someone who takes ownership of themselves, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency and candor. So important for leadership to continue to be examples for everyone else too. Keep walking our talk.
