    Pros

    You have the opportunity to make a lot of money with hard work. It's a fun environment with great team events and fun in office activities.

    Cons

    It's staffing. It's a roller coaster with lots of ups and downs. The good does outweigh the bad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make it fun and people will continue to enjoy coming to work!

    I have been working at Addison Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You can make money quickly

    Cons

    This company has a "work hard, play hard" culture, however, that means that managers are allowed to date subordinates, alcohol is in every office (wine fridge and keg-orators, and there is a ton of sexual harassment. This company does not get rid of employees that harass or sexually harass others. It is frowned upon to go to HR and HR does not like to get involved. I have personally been harassed and sexually harassed...

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees from their managers and executives harassing them. Educate employees and encourage them to speak up to HR or others if things are happening to them. Do not allow co-workers to curse or slander others without repercussions. Work to make this environment safe, collaborative, and fun.

    I worked at Addison Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I am immensely grateful for the opportunities that Addison Group offered me. I grew so much as a professional and had the chance to work with extremely driven and hardworking people. The culture of the company has an extremely open door policy. It is encouraged to ask questions and anyone at varying levels is happy to sit down with you.

    Cons

    Staffing is stressful, but that is simply just the industry. Addison Group makes great efforts to keep morale high.

    Advice to Management

    Although I think all of the managers are fantastic, I was fortunate enough to report to someone who was extremely wise about the business and truly knew how to manage different personality styles. She was an amazing mentor to me throughout my time at Addison Group and someone who I greatly respect.
