    I have been working at Options Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There certainly is an entrepreneurial culture that exists here, where employees are encouraged and pushed to build out their own business. Great people to work with, and plenty of scope for growth.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment and you're expected to take initiative. If you can't do that, then this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    I’ve been working in the New York office for almost a month now, and I’m happy to say that I wake up every day excited to go to work. There are endless opportunities for growth at Options Group. The office is a close-knit family, and there is always someone there to help you when it is needed. If you’re willing to work hard and collaboratively with your fellow colleagues, you will soon see the many paths to success that OG has to offer.

    Cons

    I have no complaints at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, you make new employees feel very welcomed.

    Pros

    The culture here encourages an entrepreneurial mindset, and rewards hard work. They make sure that you are acclimated to their platforms to be able to function efficiently, so that you can focus on purely recruiting. Managers will always provide their advice and assistance. I work with many intelligent, diverse individuals who are all successful in their respective spaces, with very impressive backgrounds. Their OGIQ staff provides very fast, up-to-date industry data. The work place looks really modern too.

    Cons

    Not a con, but with building any business, you need to put in long hours

    Pros:
    I’ve been working with the New York office of Options Group for almost a month now and thus far the experience has been very enjoyable. My co-workers have been welcoming and willing to help with even the most basic tasks that are new to me. From the very first day, it was made clear that the company as a whole wants their new hires to succeed and will try to facilitate that success however they can. As long as one is willing to work hard, growth at Options Group is assured. I’m very happy to be working here and feel lucky to have the opportunity.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about the company so far.

    Pros

    I really like the company and it's culture. I've been here for only three months, but can say already that company invests a lot in talent development, training, and technology to help their employees grow in their careers. Culture is phenomenal, people are very open, and willing to help which is very important, especially in the beginning when you are learning new technologies and process here. I am very happy at Options Group and would recommend anyone joining the firm.

    Cons

    Place is a very high-energy environment and demanding, so it won't fit to people who are looking for an easy ride and 35 hour week schedule . We all work hard, but you are definitely rewarded if you invest your time and energy at OG.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the staff in a team structure. Perhaps some more guidance in the first two weeks. All said and done, I came out alright!

    Pros

    I joined Options Group about 1 month ago and it was been a great 1st month. The on boarding process has been tremendous. My first 2 weeks - senior management set me up with 1 on 1 meetings with 10-12 team members (ranging from Associate to Partner) to learn about their respective background and best practices to be successful. The training programs from their Research team and OG University has been awesome. It has exceeded my expectations on how much time they have invested in making sure we are exposed to all the company has to offer during the first few weeks. Everyone has been encouraging, patient, and eager to teach since I have joined. People want to see you succeed and are always energetic. With hard work and passion, you can be very successful here and it shows. I am glad I made the decision to join this firm.

    Cons

    None I have seen at this point.

    Advice to Management

    None at this point in time.

    Pros

    Options Group has some of the most loyal and hard working people I have ever worked beside. In my 14+ years experience on the sell side and now as a recruiter, I have never seen a team that works so closely together to accomplish the same goal. Total collaboration!!! They have the best intentions for the candidates and clients.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I do not have any cons that I can share at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Your employees love working for and with you.
