    I have been working at Addison Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Management
    Training and Development has allowed me to be successful
    They work with you when things come up in life.
    Earning Potential is Great!
    I got hurt suddenly and I was worked with every step of the way to make sure the transition was successful and when I was back on my feet I could hit the ground running. It is the things like that that build loyalty to a company.
    Being in the Nashville office is great we have great outings and everyone has a good time.
    Upper management is readily available to help with any questions or issues that arrive all the way up to the president who tells you to reach out if you need anything and one hundred percent means it.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on Keepin on.

    I worked at Addison Group full-time

    Pros

    Allowed for a good work/life balance

    Cons

    Extreme micromanaging from managers who aren't producing themselves, lack of follow through with trainings and meetings, favoritism to selective team members that prevent others from performing/excelling, the lack of growth opportunities within and overall poor team structures.

    Advice to Management

    Showing up to work is a start... put more emphasis on full team involvement rather than just focusing on certain individuals, execute follow ups/trainings and produce with the team to lead by example.

    I worked at Addison Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You'll make some great friends!

    Cons

    -Micromanagement
    -LOW base salary
    -They'll never promote you unless they're desperate to get someone into the seat OR if you beg them
    -Management only talks about how great you are when someone else on the team leaves

    Advice to Management

    Upper management- Talk to your staff-level employees about their frustrations before you lose them!! Also learn to appreciate your staff-level employees (NOT just when someone leaves)

    Why do all the offices have the same base salary? DO your market research.

    I have been working at Addison Group full-time

    Pros

    I have nothing to say at this point.

    Cons

    With a person with a degree there pay rate is too low, for the jobs that they assign you to do.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for your employees to, have access online to all documents. For example proof of employment documents should not take 72 hours after request.

    I worked at Addison Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment, answers all questions, wants you to do well.

    Cons

    Constant inappropriate talk in the office (sex, drugs, drinking, etc) BDMS in charge of success (when they have lack of experience) , not enough resources. They are OK with clients being racist and sexist. They only care about Qaunity of calls. It's all a number game here, which I expect in sales, but give recruiters a chance to excel. Oh AND a 40,000 dollar base for hustling day in a day out is LOW AF.

    Advice to Management

    Be helpful and honest with recruiters AND bdms. I felt a lack of interest in what recruiters had to say versus BDMS. Also- that dating amongst the office.... SUPER WEIRD. Invest in your recruiters maybe they'd work better for you.

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

    Pros

    The group of people are incredibly fun and outgoing. There is never a dull moment in the office and a lot of big personalities.

    Cons

    There are many frustrations.
    1) Compensation is incredibly poor. The company wants to attract and retain top talent but the base salaries are severely low.
    2) Benefits are poor (but an industry norm)
    3) Expectations are very high, for a very low compensation.
    4) The environment often reverts to a frat house mentality - it I fun, but too much at times.

    Advice to Management

    Why not give regular options for salary increases versus fighting every salary request that every employee has.
    Focus on employee retention before its too late and then wish they had stayed.

    Pros

    If you're a pretentious sheep, you're good.

    Cons

    Yuppie/frat culture.
    Protracted, long interview process.
    Low compensation.
    Bad upper level management.
    Super saturated market.

    Advice to Management

    Giving recruiters their well deserved rep. I'll make sure my network knows to steer clear and do themselves a favor.

    Pros

    The market knows their name

    Cons

    Really bad leadership, you trip over people all the time with business development, they don't grow their staff, and they keep people around who are very mediocre at job. In addition their commission structure is pitiful.
