    I have been working at FGP International full-time

    Pros

    Super supportive, family atmosphere. Feel appreciated and given freedom and space to come and go. Uncapped earning potential. Fun corporate activities.

    Cons

    Training can be excessive at times. Benefits are average at best

    Advice to Management

    Work on obtaining a better 401k plan for employees. Also, more support on the insurance side. Other than that, keep doing what you are doing!

    FGP offers a great culture and flexible hours. We have potential to make a large salary due to good commission structure.

    Management does not allow upward mobility or does not truly care of the opinion of it's employees unless their opinion is in agreement.

    Pros

    The two jobs that I have worked through FGP were good, but just temp positions. The people I have met and worked with at FGP are very nice and easy to talk to.

    Cons

    I don't feel they do a lot to help find you a job. I contacted them about the positions after seeing them online.

    Pros

    Great company, very stable and business is constantly growing. Management has been with the company since inception and has a genuine interest in the company. Company has a flat organization but all recruiting companies are flat given that each person's role is the recruit..period. Recruiting is a hard job given that the market can turn any time and you don't have control over that. FGP gives you every opportunity to be successful IF you work for it. Very great atmosphere for working parents and families since they have a flex schedule...Most companies will not allow this. The owner recognizes that people work better when they are happy at home. High potential for high earnings IF you work hard for it.

    Cons

    We can't control the market (no recruiting company can).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out opportunities for us!

    Pros

    I've been with FGP a couple of months. It's been a great company so far. Everyone has been professional, and very nice.

    Cons

    No holiday, vacation, sick time pay. Insurance is high, will not keep you from the insurance tax penalty.
