    I worked at Opal Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual "wear what you like" environment. Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    1) Large city roaches should be on the payroll, because you often find yourself competing with them over your workspace. 2) no togetherness in the company, limited communication, departments works against each other and not with each other. 3) CEO looks at his computer all day, guess this is how he keeps busy. He does this during interviews as well. How rude. Talks about how his company is going to be "HUGE" "one day"obvious doesn't notice the exodus of employees high tailing it out the door. High turnover. Parts of company looks like a morbid ghost town, of where employees used to be. 4) CEO ONLY cares about how much money you can make for HIM, nothing else. Rarely invites employees to chime in and help make suggestions of how the company can get "better"

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the office; its a pig sty. Hire more employees offering REALISTIC wages, don't expect a lot of work-not willing to pair fair salaries. Stop taking advantage of recent college grads, like myself. Set up better policies, promote and encourage more communication. If you can't make a million dollars in the first two weeks you are with the company, you are already on the CEOs 'hit list" and you will be pursued by management like a wild animal, telling you how much of a failure you are. Give people a fighting chance. New salespeople cannot bring in thousands of thousands of dollars in their first few weeks with the company. More effort is put into "what you can do for the company" and there is never any support, on how you can get there...just do it! Morale is low at the office, and quite frankly coming to work is like going to a funeral processional each day. Finding another job, was the happiest day of my life.

    At the time of this posting, we agree, the office could have used a makeover. In the past year we’ve brought in new furniture and artwork, painted, and made a commitment to greener methods of pest ... More

    Pros

    Nice people and relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Monotonous. Desire to grow within the company is not rewarded or encouraged. You are judged only on the number of calls you make or the amount of $ you bring in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing, and stop hiring college graduates if all you want is for people to make cold calls all day.
