    I worked at Buffini & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great positive environment for self - growth and customer growth. The company invests in you as a person so you can offer more to the company and it's clients.

    Cons

    You can share financial responsibility with the company if a client does not stay which means you have to own your clientèle business as if you were self-employed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving training to retain clients and add better value

    Pros

    Amazing, friendly, hardworking people.
    Ability to witness, first-hand, the positive impact made on the lives of clients.
    Being immersed constantly in self-help and motivational material

    Cons

    Enigmatic corporate culture and structure.
    Communication channels can be convoluted, bizarre
    Company seems to be in a perpetual state of pivoting in new directions without warning

    Advice to Management

    Structure = freedom. Work more on building a good, solid structure, rather than on simply getting speedy, cheap results. Too much knowledge and wisdom leaves each time a long-time employee departs the company fold.

    I have been working at Buffini & Company full-time

    Pros

    They don't make non-managers work overtime and have a decent benefits package.

    Cons

    You will get fired if you think outside the Buffini box - they pretend to empower people and use their core values and mission to create an illusion that they care about people, but really only care about making more money. The best way to survive is to be a "yes man" and not question leadership. They basically like puppets who do what they are told. It used to be a great place to work - now it's just basic, nothing special about it anymore and the pay isn't THAT good... although they make you feel like it's all you deserve.

    Advice to Management

    value and respect your employees, actually live what you teach (don't just say you do), create a culture of possibility

    I have been working at Buffini & Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Buffini & Company for 10 years. I was attracted to it because it was clear it was a company committed to it's mission: To Impact and Improve the Lives of People, and it's core values.

    Great place to work, committed to it's clients and employees, good pay, good benefits, learning environment, fast paced, energetic.

    You'll leave work each day knowing that you are part of something big.

    Cons

    Every workplace has challenges. But, having worked at a number of companies I can honestly say there are no cons worth mentioning.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers and people are very dedicated

    Cons

    CEO makes a joke at an all-employee meeting about Asians and the punch line is "cha'ching". Top level management are ill equipped to manage

    Advice to Management

    Don't be racist in front of all your employees

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Very positive and great environment to work. The CEO really take care of their employees. Overall great work experience to move you forward to the next company.

    Cons

    They go through their employees yearly. I can say a handful has been there for over 7 years. They filter their employees like coffee. The management team will decide if they like you. If they don't, expect finding another job soon because you are next. The pay is not great. I would say average.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of letting their employees go they should talk to their employees and work together so they can improve the challenges.

    Pros

    You will be immersed in positive energy. The company's values focus on growth and balance. You will learn a lot about yourself if you absorb all they have to offer. The resources produces by the company are made available to the company. You'll learn about health, budgeting, and so much more. Also, if you get the opportunity to attend and event, the company really takes care of you and it's so much fun, although it's certainly a lot of work. They try to make a fun atmosphere and really show appreciate for hard work. You can expect lots of praise if you do a good job and guidance if you do not understand something.

    Cons

    Not always enough time to train new employees. It is a growing company so there are still some bumps in the road. As a result you get thrown in to your role. Not to say you can't ask for help along the way or you don't receive any guidance. I would just recommend taking initiative and trying to learn things on your own. It will help you in the long run. Other than that, there really aren't any cons I've encountered. The company is fantastic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up team!
