    I worked at The Acquisition Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at The Acquisition Group for almost a year. By far, the best thing about this job is the people! I loved my coworkers and am still friends with most of them, even though I'm not working there anymore. I always felt appreciated by managers, and the support was great. Even on days that were hard, we'd hang out as a team and that always helped. Lots of young, motivated people to learn from and grow with.

    Cons

    When I worked there, The Acquisition Group was growing really quickly. From my friends who still work there, it sounds like they still are. This brings amazing opportunities for promotions (some of my friends run their own offices now!), but also can make things feel chaotic at times. I got through it by asking for help when I needed it, but saw some people quit instead of try to improve. Rely on your colleagues and always...

    There were times when I struggled to hit my numbers. Management was supportive during these times, but it would have been more helpful to have support before I completely missed my targets.

    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience in sales. I get lots of training all the time and my managers are always available to help coach me when I have hard days. Sales is a hard job to learn but the money makes the payoff worth it. Unlimited commission at TAG is a big bonus. Legit the best Christmas parties ever, they go all out and bring everyone together. They put us out of town people up in a hotel.

    Cons

    The first few weeks are tough. Asking managers for help and staying focused on my goals helped me get through.

    Advice to Management

    More team events!
