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

    Pros

    Best Company that I have ever worked! We have an awesome culture, uncapped commissions and a great opportunity for career growth from within the company.
    You will have a chance to travel to other offices, meet the CEO and be treated as an actual employee, not just a number.
    Addison Group is where you want to be!

    Cons

    I work out of the OKC office and have to sit and stare at a lake every day...if that doesn't interest you, then this is not the place that you want to be.

    Pros

    Great culture and working environment. My management team gives me the freedom to run my own desk. Pretty flexible on work schedule, as long as you are performing.

    Cons

    The work can become monotonous, but there is always something to do. The ups and downs of staffing are not for everyone.

    Pros

    Addison Group is a great company to work for! The work-life balance is truly something they pride themselves on, and they should. The culture is young, fun and genuinely a great place to start your career within sales.

    Cons

    Sometimes, they can make promises they can't keep in the timeline they give. Overall, I'd say it's a great place to work!

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

    Pros

    Enough structure to make me successful, but enough autonomy to manage my own desk. I feel completely supported in every decision I make and am constantly amazed at the work the firm puts in to ensure we have all the tools and resources to be successful.

    Nothing I would consider a con.

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

    Pros

    - alcohol constantly
    - free food sometimes

    Cons

    - alcohol constantly
    - horrible gossip/mean girl mentality
    - misconduct ranging from sexual harassment to verbal abuse of employees from leadership
    - hemorrhaging top performers due to micromanagement and bad culture
    - highly deceptive about pay/commission structures
    - outright favoritism and unequal team treatment, ranging from reward structures to opportunity at the company
    - senior management behaves inappropriately without consequence, reporting to HR is not viewed as an option
    - no performance improvement plans in place for struggling new hires, they are just fired within their first 6 months
    - can, will, and has terminated employees as retaliation for seeking new employment

    Advice to Management

    Fire a few SVPs, promote more loyal employees, and keep a close eye on leaders who are losing lots of team members. Some might be due to performance, but it's not all of them - this place is rotting from the inside and no amount of blacked-out company outings or free food will cover it up.
