    More process training support when you embrace your role.

    Pros

    Ability to find your right fit within the company, even if it's not where you started; Ability to get our of it what you put into it; The development opportunities are endless; Strong culture and sense of camaraderie between teams; Great place to show your individuality - opposing and diverse views are encouraged and accepted ; innovative and ahead of the curve for personal and extra benefits

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but while there are many different opportunities at Populus Group, you get what you put into it. You'll have to work hard to play hard, share your ideas, and speak up, but it's well worth it.

    I worked at Populus Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - This company and the people are like no other. I was looking forward to many years with PG, however, had to leave due to external circumstances.
    - The CULTURE is the main focus and it makes all the difference! The trust extended to each employee is extensive and when they say you can call anyone in the directory regardless of their title, they mean it.
    - There are over 100 employees across 4-5 offices across the nation and the despite the distance and time difference, the community is incredibly close knit.
    - You will learn A LOT during your time at PG. PG strives to make you better, and in turn you will make PG better. There is an obvious focus on learning and the managers put a huge emphasis on helping you focus on your career path; they will help you do whatever possible to get closer to your goals.

    Cons

    - At times my team felt understaffed and I feel PG needs to keep a closer eye on the growth of the company/new clientele and consider the growing workload. They need to make sure there is enough support to get the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome focus on culture! There are clear goals and I can't wait to watch PG to see how it grows.
