    I worked at Sloane & Company full-time

    Pros

    Working at Sloane isn't for everyone, but if you are a detail-oriented, passionate person who enjoys doing great work for clients, Sloane is one of the best places to start a career. Managers take time to help new employees get up to speed quickly on accounts and your career progression depends on how much you want to take on and how quickly. This is not a place that discourages employees from raising their hands or forces people to stay in a role for a certain amount of time. If you work hard, you are rewarded.

    Cons

    The environment can often be intense and managers are often exacting with employees. Again, if you're detail-oriented and want to do a good job, this won't be an issue. The culture can also be a bit awkward at times. Lastly, the company is not terribly flexible about working remotely -- there's a general attitude that if you're not in your seat, you're not working.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is key for attracting the new generation and is a great tool for building trust with employees.

    I worked at Sloane & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a small firm, so you can move up quickly, become familiar with many different industries and learn a number of work styles.

    Cons

    Companies they represent are often small beans and boring. Work environment is stressful, demeaning, rude, cut throat, sexist and top-down. Employees are overworked. Management doesn't communicate well. (They're screamers). This influences the entire office. I've also seen business practices that are unethical at times. High employee turn over. Never sign contracts w/ them. They act like they own your soul.

    Pros

    The employees are pretty laid-back and friendly. They recognize everyones birthday with a birthday cake. They have many opportunities for training and development- which are open to everyone. They bring an outside corporate trainer in to conduct classes on a variety of topics. The weekly Monday morning staff meetings usually leave us in stomach pains because although it's extremely professional, managements candor and humor is refreshing and envigorating. These folk aren't uptight at all. They make you feel at home... even though you are at work.. and they do eveyrthing they can to support you and provide you with whatever you need to do your job well.

    Cons

    Long hours.. lots of hard work.. somewhat stressful at times,..You will always be busy!

    Advice to Management

    Give more vacation time.

    Pros

    Great exposure. Lost of responsibility given to persons relatively new to the business.

    Cons

    Demanding environment. Managers tend to "micromanage".
