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

    Pros

    Locally based in New Jersey. Quick and painless commute driving to warehouse. Some friendly co-workers who are down to earth.

    Cons

    Make-shift Ad Agency with horrible Management. Director position lacks communication skills and only cares about making the bonus and making oneself look like they do it all. Uncomfortable atmosphere as this small Ad Agency is truly smoking mirrors...

    Advice to Management

    President needs to speak to Ad Agency workers and ask them about Managements lack of caring, selfishness and communication that is non-existent at best.

    Pros

    It is apparent from my short time here that everyone here at CI-Group strives for perfection, and wants to make sure that every new member hired has the same outlook. The great thing is that when there are missteps (nobody's perfect!), people band together to figure out steps to take to make sure that mistakes and missteps are not made twice. It is a great environment to learn and grow.

    Cons

    There is an overall sense of community within CI-Group, but departmental roles within the company are separate from each other, and only recently have steps been taken to try and unify the goals of CI-Group. A good first step, but more still needs to come.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working to bring departments together and the CI-Group family will only grow stronger! Understanding the roles and tasks of every department will also help evolve employees' view and understanding of CI-Group as a whole.

    Pros

    CI-Group is a company that strongly cares about their employees who in return truly care about the work they are doing. This organization strives for only the best and will go above and beyond to ensure that their clients' needs are met, but also leaves time for fun with company wide gatherings and parties.

    The employees and management are both friendly and professional which offers a pleasant work environment and culture. This is a company that has the mentality of helping one another.

    CI-Group provides a great atmosphere to learn and grow, and is a great company to work for. I plan on continuing my career at CI-Group and growing with this company.

    Cons

    This company does not accept mediocrity, and will expect your very best work. Do not expect to "BS" your way through.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in people who will embrace our company culture.

    I have been working at CI-Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CI-Group: a great place to work. In the short time that I have worked here, I have nothing but good things to say about this company. The interview process went very smoothly; I heard back after each interview (phone, in person) either that day or the next day if I was to advance to the next step, which I found very impressive next to other positions that would take weeks to get back to me. Everyone is so friendly and passionate about their work and the environment of the company is very family-oriented. Another aspect that I find interesting is that many people love this company so much and have stayed there for several years throughout their career. I find this speaks a lot about the company culture. Movement between departments is also very common and feasible within the company, which is a plus if you want different opportunities for growth within the company down the line. Overall, this company has been great to work for and I look forward to many years to come!

    Cons

    Since CI Group is full of hard working individuals, this job is no piece of cake. They expect greatness, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just work hard and always give it your all, every single day.

    Great people. We are really making an effort to continue to bring in people who align with our culture and the existing staff.

    Cons

    Many new faces as we continue to grow. Constant challenge to keep the culture strong.
    As we grow, those of us who have been here for a while must adapt to a larger environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the philosophy that has made this company great for 30 years....hard work, passion, caring about the team and the clients.

    I have been working at CI-Group full-time

    Pros

    I recently joined CI-Group and was impressed with the interview process. Here, senior executives take the time to meet with candidates to assess skills and culture fit. Management also realizes the value of treating staff as talented contributors who have a desire to learn and grow. It is evident from the start that employees are passionate about their clients and are equally interested in working together as a team. Just don’t let the casual atmosphere fool you! This group is highly professional and does what it takes to satisfy clients in a very competitive business climate.

    Cons

    The company is located off of the highway, so no real ability to walk to restaurants and stores. However, there is usually no reason to leave, as the company provides a very nice lunch room and delicious variety of free coffee and tea!
