    I have been working at Ettain Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ettain group is a really great place to start a career, especially without and prior experience.
    great training program for new hires and leaders that really care about making you successful.
    overall great environment, music playing, people are happy and really nice to be around and work with. great team bonding.
    a lot of fun celebrations and events that we do outside of work for the holidays and team bonding.
    can make a lot of money if you work hard - the commission plan is a lot better than at some other companies in the industry.
    competitive base salary. In all of my experience here, I have met some of the best people. I always feel supported and have worked with the best Managers that I could ask for.

    Cons

    This is a tough industry. You have to work really hard, its fast paced, and with that comes a level of stress. They try to help ease that and you never feel like someone is coming down on you - there are games etc to help with balance.

    It is a growing company, changes are made and you have to be flexible, but they are always for the better of the company and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people as a top priority. As the company grows, don't forget about all of the people that have stayed and worked hard and make sure to reward that.
    Keep doing what you're doing - the culture is what makes people stay.

    Pros

    Pay weekly , networking opportunities, and great training.

    Cons

    Management for my office was a jerk. Never had an issue with my job until I worked here . If you never been a recruiter avoid this place . They will train you but expect you to make money the first three weeks and if you don't you're out of there! The co workers are clingy and very rude. Thank goodness I have a better job getting paid twice as much as those jerks.

    Advice to Management

    If someone recruits for the first time, give them chance. Don't automatically fire them after a month.

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

    Pros

    Hired out of college, gained great sales experience which set me up for future success in my career. The experience in a high volume sales environment as well as a very competitive industry made the experience highly valuable.

    Cons

    Not all sales territories have the same opportunity for success. Combine the lack of opportunity with a saturated competitive landscape, and it makes it even harder.

    Advice to Management

    None. Leadership was always strong and I always felt like they were pointing the company in the right direction.

    Pros

    Office space is nicer than most.

    Cons

    Worked for the company when it was called Timberhorn. Managment are good old boys who drink in the office most days while watching youtube and golf videos. Management are related to each other or worked at prior companies forming a tight click.

    Only a place for recruiters who skate by using indian sub firms. Real recruting doesnt happen as the office is about quantity not quality. Workplace can be hostile and the locker room atmosphere is not good for women. Managment points fingers at others instead of themselves. Sales team brings in low margin, low pay orders.

    Advice to Management

    Break up the click and end the favoritism. Stop allowing employees to drink at the office.

    Pros

    There is an extensive hiring process, which I found results in generally very good people being hired and resulting in a very positive work environment.

    Cons

    It's a sales job, so you're going to be beaten up by clients at times. There's a pressure to succeed, but it's a positive one.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of just supporting people development regarding phone conversations, get out into the field with them and help generate sales when needed.
