    I have been working at Closer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've come from a different background and without experience and the team really believed in me as a person and gave me a chance to work at Closer. Nowadays, I find it hard to believe there are not a lot of companies out there which give value to you as a person and not as a number. You can find that in Closer. Everyone is always trying to help, teams are amazing and the environment is fantastic. People at Closer make you wanna be a better person - I feel that. There are really chances for you to improve here. Imagine you're standing in the same room as the company's partners and you're talking to him like you're colleagues and equal - that happens in Closer! You can expect honesty. It's not just another outsourcing company. You do have a voice.

    Cons

    Nothing to regret about so far.

    I worked at Closer full-time

    Pros

    If you're a newbie you're on the right company.

    Cons

    Everything they will promise, if it's not written you can consider it as no promise at all. The value of their words is zero.

    I worked at Closer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They actually care about their employees! I had a short experience working at Closer, but it was enough to see that they actually care for their consultants general happiness. Also, they recognize the good work, you don't need to brag.

    Cons

    Need to have more clients so they can offer more diversity of projects to their consultants. More trainings and certifications would be a plus.
