    Pros

    Professional Employment Group is a fantastic company that is run with high integrity. I have been in the staffing industry a long time, and the benefit structure that we provide our contractors is second to none. PEG is a filled with dynamic employees that care about doing things right, and helping those succeed around them. Best workplace, phenomenal CEO, and simply a great company to be a part of.

    Cons

    Discoverability and website improvements would be nice

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

    Pros

    Absolutely NOTHING, I am so sorry I took a chance on this company. It was a horrible mistake!!!

    Cons

    If I could give them ZERO STARS, I would. Top worst company I have ever worked for. They are bigots, racist and discriminant. The Denver branch is absolutely horrific, HORRIBLE . Management is not existent, very unprofessional.... RUN!!!! Do not give them your business or work for them, you will truly be sorry. I wish I would have NEVER made the decision to work for them. If you are not white and straight, you have no place here!

    Advice to Management

    Open your mind, it is 2017.

    "Terrible Place To Work"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    Parties are fun I suppose

    Cons

    This is one of the worst places I have ever worked. The Account Managers play favorites and decide who survives at this company. If they like you, they'll always submit your candidates and help you be successful. If they don't like you, they'll either bully you to the point of quitting or make sure upper management fires you. I can't tell you how many times I watched the Account Managers scream at and belittle employees out in the open for everyone to see and hear. Very unprofessional.

    I've also never seen a place that fires so many people. I mean if you even look at someone the wrong way and you'll be out the door. And before anyone thinks I'm a bitter employee, I was NOT fired from PEG. If you ever look into working for this company, don't fall for the CEO's seemingly kind demeanor. If she really cared that much about her employees, then why would she be so quick to put so many of them out of jobs?

    They also like to make major changes out of nowhere and drop bombshells on the employees which is really annoying because once you get used to working a certain way, you have to start all over again.

    Also, several of the reviews on here I'm sure were either written by management or management asked their employees to write them, because of the reviews below is literally part of the company's mission statement.

    Advice to Management

    where to even begin?

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

    Pros

    If you perform well, management will leave you alone and let you produce. There is no cap on commission, so you can greatly impact your salary. There is no path for advancement, the highest performers are not the ones necessarily selected for promotion.

    Cons

    CEO makes changes to business/strategy on a whim. Only real focus is on contract staffing, no support for direct placement position, even though they bring in more revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at other staffing companies' structure. Create a path of upward mobility.


  5. "Recruiter"

    Cons

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

    Pros

    You get a paycheck every two weeks, and good benefit options. Otherwise, there is nothing positive about working here.

    Cons

    Stay away!!!!!!! CEO is highly unprofessional. Knows nothing about staffing. They push the idea of a PEG "family" only when it is in the best interest of the CEO, Karen Spann.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. Seriously, good luck. You act like you are religious but you are a racist and deep down you are not a good person.

    None, it is a production based role. You are compensated on your production.
