    I have been working at Strive Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Starting at the top, Strive is led by partners and executives who care truly about doing right by all people in the company. This dedication manifests itself in continuous opportunity for personal, professional, and financial growth for each employee - and I believe is the main reason we continue to attract and retain such amazing talent.

    Cons

    Being a rapidly growing organization, leadership can be pulled in a lot of directions and can be understandably stretched thin at times. Support and guidance is always available, but it employees sometimes have to be proactive to get it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and develop future leaders.

    Pros

    Great career move and a great company.

    The people at Strive are smart, enthusiastic, energized and genuinely willing and able to help answer questions and solve challenges -- both internally and for their clients.

    A lot of care is taken in the recruiting process and consultant engagement process to make sure we are maintaining our culture and service quality as we grow and expand our services.

    There is great opportunity for all at Strive to help shape the future of the company and contribute to that path forward.

    Cons

    None noted at this time

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be mindful as we grow to maintain the culture that has so carefully been set and to learn from every step. It will serve us well.

    I have been working at Strive Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People, People, People, Atmosphere, Culture! Great company with unbelievable potential. Very grounded individuals that are motivated to succeed and push one another to meet and achieve Strive excellence.

    Cons

    Unrealistic KPI's take away from the authentic connection Strive encourages to make with their qualified candidates. Training could be more refined.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out other motivation tactics. "Monthly" weekly spread totals group goals, random individual Recruiter/AE weekly close prize, things that will keep everyone hustling in a positive manner.

    Pros

    Down to earth people, decent pay, sweet office right downtown

    Cons

    Identity issues with who we are and who we want to be. Management creates unrealistic goals and doesn't apply feedback well. Expect to see other people leaving there soon

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your recruiters and make your presence known more throughout the office. It's one thing to be a small company and to work directly with the execs to implement change. It's another thing to have execs who are rarely in the office, stay in their office, and only pop out when they have bad news or an annoucement. The company is too small for all the politics
