    I have been working at AGI Atlanta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The reason I started working here was for the management training program. Yes, there is great training. Yes, the team really works well together. But for me, the biggest pro is the opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    If you want to get into a management position quickly, its going to take an intense work ethic and a commitment to your goals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up everyone! You're doing very well with the company's direction.

    I worked at AGI Atlanta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team here is fun, active, and engaging. Everyone in the office is super nice, especially management. Thats about it.

    Cons

    First and foremost, I was told this job would have a base pay plus uncapped commission. After my first day, I was told this was not the case. You are required to be in the office early for required meetings, before heading out for a full day on the field. Hours are long and a lot of the time exhausting. As it is a 100% commission job, money depends on who you can swindle into buying into the scheme. Regular lunch breaks are not encouraged (often asked to be limited to less than 30 mins)

    Pros

    The entry level position really prepared me for working in effectively in the industry and this type of environment. I've learned a lot so far and continue to learn something new every day.

    Cons

    We harp on it all the time. You have to have a great work ethic anywhere if you want to be taken seriously. Especially in a performance based system.

    Advice to Management

    I think what you all are doing is great. Keep it up please.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees here. Sure, we get the typical holidays off, but if something comes up where we need time off, they don't get all bent out of shape over it. Very willing to work with you provided you put in the effort.

    Cons

    Those with very little or no work ethic need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work guys and girls. We all appreciate the work you're doing.

    Pros

    I like what AGI is doing with the management training program here. They have some really great trainers on staff and advancement is based on performance.

    Cons

    Some people may not get ahead as quickly as others if the work ethic isn't there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work guys and girls. You're doing great.

    Pros

    The biggest and best reason to work at AGI is the opportunity for advancement. I've seen people get promoted into management VERY quickly. I'm talking less than two years. Awesome!

    Cons

    You have to have a pretty intense work ethic to get to management in like a year and a half. Most people can't work that hard.

    Advice to Management

    I think the opportunity here is fantastic! Let's get cranking!

    Pros

    I really like the management training program at AGI. There's a lot of cool people here that help you out along the way as well.

    Cons

    We talk a lot about work ethic because that's the key to success in anything. If you aren't a hard worker, don't apply to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep the momentum going!

    The training here is off the charts. You learn exactly what you need to do to win and also what it takes to succeed overall in the industry and as an entrepreneur.

    Just like anything worthwhile, it takes a strong work ethic to not just get by, but to succeed.

    Keep up the fantastic work that you've been doing.

    Pros

    First off, there is a lot of training in the first few weeks. In fact, there's a lot of training throughout each of your roles within the company. Secondly, you get cross trained in a bunch of different areas. Lastly, the trainers are all great!

    Cons

    Those with a good work ethic and good attitude will succeed. If you are lacking on either one of those things, you will fail.

    Advice to Management

    I think we should get a snack machine in the main admin area.
