      Pros

      Coleman has been an awesome place to start my career! I've gotten to develop my understanding of many different industries by speaking with high level executives from all over, and gotten to work directly with clients from large investment firms. The culture is great even during COVID and I learn something (or 10 things) new every day. I would recommend any new college graduate who is interested in business to think about applying, as I've been able to make high level connections with amazing people.

      Cons

      I've enjoyed everything thus far.

      Best Place I've Worked!

      Pros

      -Great work/life balance -You have the option to work from home or in office (post-COVID of course) -Wonderful management -They do a great job with training/onboarding and really want to help you succeed -Pay/commission structure is set up very well

      Cons

      You have to work after hours 1 night a month. I don't think it's a con though, it's just something to be aware of. After hours is only 3 extra hours after the workday and like I said, it is only once a month.

      Incredible work environment, more than livable pay, upward mobilitiy

      Pros

      Supportive work environment including regular office wide comradery events and posts. Familiarity with all upper leadership and access creating sense of team throughout entire workplace. Handled transition to work from home well, international so can work in any time zone. Really amazing entry level salary and training. Would recommend to any recent graduate (who else has health care, dental, vacation, sick, and family days right after graduating!!). Exposure to various careers and industries within and outside Coleman. Professional but human work environment.

      Cons

      Fast paced, not for those who like consistency or are looking for a mundane 9-5. Job is really until it's done which can be difficult for those not experienced with time management/individualized goals. Competitive atmosphere which again, is right for some people (me) but not for others.

      Too many issues overall as a company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nice colleagues, Nice office locations and perks, Some opportunity to travel, Some opportunity to make commission.

      Cons

      Too many. First, the company is unsuccessful and failing. They cannot compete with their top competitors and therefore get further squeezed out of the market every week, month, year. That is the major con. No matter what they try, and mind you they do have some good folks and do try to fix things, the basic underlying fact of the matter is that they are simply unsuccessful and do not post anything higher than abysmal revenue growth. Compounded by the con that they have the absolute worst middle managers you could ever imagine in an established company. Referring to the middle management here, the "Directors". Completely useless, inexperienced, themselves 10 minutes out of college, complete failures professionally and sadly also from a personable perspective. No idea how to rally the troops and stand up for the people they manage. Spineless unfortunately, and hence the whole organization suffers. The cons just keep adding to a long list, bad commission structure, overworking, mistreatment by clients.
