    Pros

    Even if you have no experience you are given so much training and support to excel. I have never been with a company that invests so much time into you.

    I have only been with the company for a month. But I have received so much support from both my team and my manager.

    Cons

    You need to be proactive in seeking out help. If you can't take the initiative or have trouble problem solving on the spot this job is not for you.

    Pros

    Being with TAG a little over three years now has been quite an experience, I started off as an admin for our DT office then after 8months into my role I got promoted to an EA, being the first to land this role got me learning soo much and more. The opprotunity to advance never ends, I love the culture and atmosphere and the endless potlucks ;) .

    Cons

    No cons im still here and enjoy what I do :) .

    I worked at The Acquisition Group full-time

    Pros

    I had an absolutely amazing experience working with The Acquisition Group, I was provided with amazing feedback and training from both TAG managers as well as Telus. How much time and effort was greatly appreciated as well as working with an organization that cares so much about their customers as well as their staff (I got to go on a expense free trip to Mexico). The people I worked with were like my family, and I was able to take all I learned from TAG and propel it into my own business.

    Cons

    If you are having issues at TAG please speak up to a manager or get in touch with their HR team, anything that came up that was a con was resolved and a solution was provided. Where I saw people struggle was them not engaging with the leadership team and therefore solutions were never provided as they didn't know anything was wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Have representatives from HR visit the office and talk to the teams more so they have a more open dialogue, lots of people are sometimes scared to talk to their managers about the issues they're having because they don't want them to have a negative opinion about them.

    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've bee working for The Acquisition Group for about 2.5 years now. My favourite part of this company is that they're willing to take on people with little to no experience and provide them the training and education to be able to grow into the position. How many other companies are willing to hire with out xx years relevant work experience?
    They also solely promote from within the company, so all the managers have been in the same position as the most junior workers at some point in their career. It gives management the ability to relate to the ground-level jobs and also motivates those coming into entry-level positions to strive to achieve a higher level of success.

    Cons

    There's only 1 con I can think of and that's that the hours can be somewhat demanding. The company expects a lot out of it's workers but will reward those showing dedication.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard and supporting the team!

    Pros

    Unlimited growth and income opportunities. I've improved my communication skills, got the knowledge on how to run your own business, grown personally and professionally. And there's so much ahead! ;)

    Cons

    people might say we are working longer hours and that it's a hard job. Well, in the end of the day hard work pays off, you'll hardly get anywhere without putting in a fair amount of effort and when I see those smiles on a pay day it totally worth it ;)
