    I worked at Advanced Resources Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Advanced Resources is always available and quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have while working for them. They provide the best benefits of any contractor I've ever worked for - including 401K, paid holidays and accrued PTO. They also provide competitive salaries. This is a great contractor to work for and highly recommend them if you get the opportunity to do so.

    Cons

    The only con about Advanced Resources is that they are only in Missouri. I wish they had locations around the nation.

    Pros

    Great to work with, clear direction and very disciplined approach. Promotes consistency and rewards performance very well. Competitive company within the market.

    Cons

    None really. Main concerns are more market driven and not about the company itself.

    Advice to Management

    Good to see the diversity you are promoting as well as the variety of disciplines and geography.

    I have been working at Advanced Resources Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have found that people do not last long if they are not hard workers. This is a very pleasant work environment with many perks. The only thing that is expected is you come to work everyday and work hard. I don't find this too much to ask of employees.

    Cons

    Since I really don't have one, I would have to pick on the HVAC system. SOMEDAYS sheesh!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. There is a great team in place and I look forward to continue growing with the company.

    Pros

    Full transparency in all operations and dealings. Open door policy with all managers and owners. Flexibility and freedom in work environment. Caring and compassionate team.

    Cons

    The worst thing I can possible think of is the air conditioning/heat discrepancies at times

    Advice to Management

    ..... And to former employees with a burden to bear: ADVR is an organization that cultivates and promotes success in each of its employees; but that doesn't mean success is handed to you. Those out there that feel the need to hide behind the anonymity of glass door to bash the ceo or the team never learned the meaning of hard work nor were they likely all that good at their job to get over themselves and the challenges of this type of business. Those are the employees that are nothing more than a trickle in the water and hardly missed. They too will soon turn to glass door to bash apex, Kelley Mitchell, netEffects or whatever other flavor of the month firm they felt at which the grass was greener.
     Those that are successful and good at what they do are STILL with ADVR.... Let that sink in for a moment.
    I highly enjoyed my time with ADVR, and if it were not for a cross country relocation, I would still be there today. The owners are caring and respectful people that do good, honest business and take good care of their employees. The manager juggles countless tasks and people and is still available for anything you need. The team is solid and acts as a well oiled machine. They know their stuff and are good at what they do.
    Stay the course and I hope to see ADVR grow into the company I already know it is.

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

    Pros

    -Convenient location
    -Managing director actually knows what she is doing and is always available to help.
    -The recruiters and account managers work really hard to keep the company going. They pour everything they can into it (with zero return.)

    Cons

    -Horrible work/life balance. They choose your floating holidays and for the first time since high school I had to be at work on Christmas Eve. Very little flexibility for life events. HORRIBLE.
    - Owners are always in your business questioning what you do. Even though they have zero presence in the market.
    - No room for career growth.
    - (obviously) they have workers fluff feedback like this to skew numbers and rankings. Ask former employees if you want the real story.

    Advice to Management

    Either get out in the market, learn what is going on and be an asset to the company, or just stay out of everyone's business.

    Make it an environment where people want to work. It's a new age, working remote, flexible schedule, etc is the norm not an exception. Trust your employees.

  8. "Churn and Burn"

    Pros

    They make new people feel very welcome and the parking lot is only steps from the front door.

    Cons

    Same mentality as most firms in the area; lead by intimidation and fear. Fairly clear they have coaxed reviews from current employees to bolster review rating. Constant turnover and very few "good" relationships with clients. One owner pretty decent to work with, the other owner, not so much. Management placates some of the higher performers who have maturity issues because they bring in money. Account Managers not held to the same standards as recruiters.

    Advice to Management

    It's not difficult to get to know all of your employees. Just because someone may be quiet, doesn't mean he/she doesn't care or that he/she doesn't have good ideas.
