Pros

Tight-knit group of people that care about each other. The atmosphere is casual, yet fast-paced. Always challenging one another to stretch and grow. Routinely get together with team members for team-building events, company get togethers and lunches. Senior management cares about the employees and are always looking for ways to grow and mentor others less-experienced employees on the team.

Cons

Sometimes being a smaller company means we don't have as large a reach or budget as nationwide companies. We make do with some technology challenges and sometimes lose business due to the fact we are not a nationally based company.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and keep challenging each and every one of us!

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

    Pros

    Working here is fantastic! You have to be willing to work hard and put in your time to learn and grow, but they do a great job of offering opportunities for both. More importantly, they offer more balance than most search firms, which makes having a family and a rewarding career a real possibility. If you aren't willing to work hard, this industry isn't right for you - search is definitely not a 9-5 job, but, if you are willing to work hard, recruiting can be incredibly rewarding.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the work, you can feel like you are on an "island" sometimes -- that isn't an FGP thing, that is an Executive Search thing. They do a good job of encouraging collaboration so that they can avoid this when possible. I've seen more and more of that in the last three years, so it seems to be something management is deliberately addressing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing employees that they are valued! We feel it everyday. Medical insurance could be a little less expensive, but I that is par for the course these days with a smaller company.

    I worked at FGP International (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to earn ; flexibility is pretty good and I made good money here. Some good people were here but they were the exception and not the rule

    Cons

    Shady; NOT ETHICAL, I would NOT work here again. Some really rude and "SALESY" people here though some were fine. But most would cut you as soon as help you...

    Advice to Management

    ETHICS are important; Keep that mind. What comes around goes around. Do a better job listening to everyone - not just the holdovers or biggest producers
