    Pros

    A true opportunity to make friends for life. A fun work hard play hard environment that feels like a family. Commission structure is AWESOME! success takes time and deals take time but you can make a ton of money. I wasn't too successful my first 6 months in the business but now I'm doing deals every month getting a ton of commission. It takes time to build your business. But now over 2 years in I'm making over 100,000. I never thought by calling and selling jobs I could make this much money. But it does take effort, it takes an intense drive to hit the phones and know some calls may go well some may not. It is a sales job. But I love sales! Im competitive and it keeps me driven. My team is fun. We have boat rides, happy hours, etc. Really cool group of people and my manager is intense but so fun! I've already been promoted and up for a bonus. Love the atmosphere of banging the gong and blasting music when you do a deal.

    Cons

    The base salary isn't as high as other competitors but the commission structure makes up for it. My friend started the same time as me at our competitor and is still making just a bit over her base. I'm making a ton more.

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

    Pros

    My recruiter Bem A. made the interview process very seamless, quick and easy. After we had our first conversation, the rest of the process lasted a week and I was offered the following week. Bem is an All-Star! Having been at my previous employer for over 5yrs, I came to Progressive Global Energy looking to shake up my routine. Walking in to a new place in downtown Houston can be nerve wrecking. Not knowing where to park, not knowing any of your new colleagues, not know if you can do the job, and having the lingering thought of, "did I make the right move?" They brought me in with another new starter (Aliyah) and we have been close ever since. My manager Ben W. is the epitome of what a great manager is. He truly invested himself in making sure that I had all of the proper materials to be the most successful at my job. He was ALWAYS there to answer questions, guide me through uncomfortable situations, and to mentor me in finding the ideal candidate. Can never thank you enough. Progressive Global Energy has one of the best training programs I have been a part of. In my previous position I was tasked with training and developing my staff for every possible scenario, so I feel I am equipped to judge this! Jake P., the Senior Learning Consultant, led daily training sessions, made himself available for one on one training and made sure we were well prepared to start recruiting. My director Stefan H. was there to be sure that the training received directly translated to my work. He was available for one on one mentoring, would give blunt and constructive advice and I honestly do feel that I am a strong recruiter because of it. As if the people and training weren't enough, It's hard to leave a company where you get 22 PTO days, 2 weeks off for holidays, every bank holiday off AND incentive trips and flex time. If you get the opportunity to work here, DO IT!

    Cons

    I loved my time here. If I had to choose it would be the construction going on underneath us. Can be pretty hard to focus with all of the noise at times.

    I worked at SThree full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked at sthree for over 5 years and it was a tremendous experience with plenty of opportunity. Sthree has a strong history of opening successful offices across the U.S. due to their amazing training program which has been created in-house by a strong L&D team. They manage their staff to a very specific formula which can generate success when executed correctly. The organization does a good job of recognizing performance and offering inclusive rewards. Career advancement is there for the taking.

    Cons

    - Sthree typically hires entry level staff so they often struggle to manage, empower and retain experienced sales consultants - The company has made significant strides in terms of diversity & inclusion but this should still be a core area of focus for many years to come - There is an obvious lack of women in managerial roles and this is due to leaderships inability to take the correct steps to empower women. The organization should seek outside guidance on this topic and continue to push themselves to be better
