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

    Pros

    Working with Brooksource has been an unbelievable experience, in every sense of the phrase. Truly no other work experience that I've had has been as much of a grind, yet as immensely satisfying while working.

    Good things come to those who wait, and with the right mindset/attitude and work ethic, the senior management will bend over backwards to help you reach your goals. It is a grind, but the company metrics and support make it virtually impossible to not be successful, so long as you're willing to put in the work upfront.

    Success doesn't come easy here, but when it does, hold on!

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is that it takes someone with Grit to work here; immediate success isn't a thing. You have to be committed to the long term growth of your business (and more importantly yourself) in order to reap the rewards.

    That being said, putting in the work on the front end, and with a little luck, and you'll be out-earning your graduation mates within 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep growing the "next level" roles past the base roles - there'll be a lot of hungry successors looking to grow upwards and seeking more opportunity soon!

    Pros

    The company culture here is phenomenal, you'll most likely never find anything like it. There is a ton of room for growth within the organization

    Cons

    Everyone has to start at the bottom of the totem pole in order to progress through the company. (i.e. salary is pretty low)

    I have been working at Brooksource full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This job has put me in a position to find my own personal and professional success. My closest friends moving to Nashville are the people in this office. This company places so much emphasis on bringing our core values to such a individual level, that it really does provide an environment that makes you excited about coming into work. In sales, you definitely have more of that entrepreneurial feel because you really are able to create your own business. Very little micromanaging and the company has sales tools they've invested in to really help you perfect your craft.

    With this being my 5th year with the company, I have friends from college that are on their 2nd or 3rd job and asking if Brooksource is hiring. It's growing and there are tons of opportunity. Still feels like the ground floor.

    Cons

    No real cons. Other than the industry may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and investing in your people.

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

    Pros

    In an industry that sees over 70% attrition, it is so refreshing to see such an awesome support network.
    Brooksource has seen explosive growth for years and is continuing to grow and that means that there is an incredible income potential.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. I hope I retire from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Pros

    A TON of opportunity for advancement: management really trusts in their training and employees who have graduated in the last ~3 years have the opportunity to rapidly advance. This is the place to be for hard workers, you get out what you put in! The core values are at the center of everything Brooksource does.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Since working with Brooksource, I have found a family of co-workers who encourage me to reach my full potential while taking advantage of the career opportunities provided by our organization.

These paths are made possible (and enjoyable!) to take because of the wonderful people I work with who motivate me to be my best everyday.
