Pros

Friedkin offers outstanding Benefits package, a beautiful facility, and great associate programs. You also find a lot of tenured employees. Senior Management receives great incentives.

Cons

A lot of the tenured employees are complacent in their roles and are not adaptive to change; making new ideas and new technology extremely difficult to promote. Career advancement is limited unless; you search on your own and transfer out to other companies within Friedkin. It’s not in management's radar to promote or create career ladders within their departments. Job responsibilities increase and sometimes double, without reward or recognition.

Advice to Management

There's a lot of top to bottom feedback, consider feedback from bottom to top; you'll be surprised to see how hard your bottom line works, while your top management cruises and gains all the benefits and recognition. Reward your tenured employees, and when they decide to leave take care of them, and thank them for their dedication and loyalty.

    I worked at The Friedkin Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, treat employees well, Xmas party

    Cons

    The "Velvet Hammer" may come down on you if you have undesirable things such as facial hair, unapproved ring tone, wear short sleeves, or you hair cut is too long. They talk culture and values but when it comes down to it talk is cheap
