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

    Pros

    Enjoyable work environment, great company culture and awesome teamwork. I started as a a part timer and after a few months or so, as the team grew bigger, I was asked to work as a full timer. The Acquisition Group has provided me with skills that I can always use to further my career. As friendly as the managers were, they were also respectful and professional. There is flexibility, especially for someone like me, who...

    Pros

    The working environment and staff are very positive, where this made me become high in morale and always ready for work. Also the flexibility of working hours allows me to arrange my schedule in a comfortable way.

    Cons

    The number parking stalls available for employees are really tight compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    It would be appreciated if the management could somehow acquire more marking stalls for the employees who drive to work like me.

    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time

    Pros

    The Acquisition Group provides a fun and welcoming work environment with flexible hours to meet your schedule. The seniors within the company are always willing to help and encourage open conversation among the team. Employees are self determined and not micromanaged at the Acquisition Group. It is a relaxed working and casual working environment. The company provides a great learning and growth opportunities from within.

    Cons

    Being a new employee with the group, TAG has been very supportive so I am not able to point out any cons at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of the managers are not in the office regularly so its difficult for new employees to tell who is who. I would suggest that when in the office, managers should take a few minutes out of their busy schedule to have an introductory conversation with the new staff. It smooths out the integration of new members into the team.

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

    Pros

    As a co-op student, I have gained diverse experience while cycling through multiple departments. The comprehensive training and workshops they provided are really helpful for me to thrive in my current position. The working environment here is positive and co-workers are friendly and easy-going. Lastly, there are lots of potential for growth, as I witness new management gets promoted in the office.

    Cons

    You need to work hard everyday. The job is not for someone who just want to come in and stare at the clock.

    Advice to Management

    More team nights, buy me more drinks!
