    I have been working at BBG Management full-time

    Pros

    BBG is growing their client base and increasing their revenue. They really are going places. They now have mature processes in place for each part of the business. They now have a profit sharing plan and offer stock options, which is huge given their expected annual revenue growth. Employees at BBG have an exciting opportunity to make great money. The CEO keeps all employees informed on business progress and business development activities. He also spends significant time to help bring everyone up to speed on their respective roles.

    Cons

    Compensation is performance based. Some people excel at this type of opportunity, some people have trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the business! It is working. I have seen great progress at BBG.

    I have been working at BBG Management full-time

    Pros

    This company is growing its customer base and expanding. They have matured their processes and approach to help both the recruiters and the clients. The CEO is rolling out employee handbooks, and guides so everyone understands the commission structure. They are giving visibility to the monthly placement wins so each person understands how their commission is building. They are even considering a profit sharing plan.

    Cons

    This is a performance based organization. Many small companies are like this and it does inject some pressure. But these are also the companies that grow with a plan and then achieve their plan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the new processes and commission communication. It helps employees know where they stand. This alleviates many of the negative comments previously posted in Glassdoor.
