    I have been working at The Execu|Search Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would never have been successful had it not been for the training and support I received from my team. They made sure I was set up for success from the second I started. You get exactly what you put into the job. Love working here!

    Cons

    Hours can be long, however, you see the effort of the time you put in given back to you times ten!

    Pros

    The work is exhilarating and fast paced. The management team truly wants the staff to succeed and grow. The company allows you to grow/earn more by the effort you put in. And most importantly, the leaders of the company are admirable , if you are looking for a company with strong management, look no further.

    Cons

    Benefits are minimal and expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Competitors often offer better benefits or more work comforts. But, realistically you don't pick a company because of the benefits you pick a company because of its leaders, and TESG has some of the best leaders.

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

    Pros

    It is what you make of it. The more effort you put in towards building relationships with clients/staffing managers, the more money you will make and the more you will move up. No cookie-cutter days is a huge plus.

    Cons

    I've heard that some higher-level people micromanage and absolutely obliterate morale. 401k match would also be nice to have but really can't complain when a company gives you every opportunity to make a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just make someone a manager because they've been here 3+ years and you feel the need to give them more responsibilities. It will destroy the team for years to come because current employees will not reach their potential and I promise you people will leave ONLY because of this. Seen it happen a handful of times.

    Pros

    Nothing at all. Dealing with the people at the Parsippany location was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.

    Cons

    Horrible experience, cares nothing about the employees, low pay

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cheat the employees.

    Pros

    Technology makes it easy to work from home, decent benefits for an agency

    Cons

    They say that they aren’t metric driven, but that isn’t true at all. They love phone stats and care a lot about how many calls you are making, regardless of how good your results are. Also, there is a ton of miscommunication between management.

    Pros

    Quality clients and frequent assignments, short gaps between assignments

    Cons

    If you are looking for temp to perm or perm you will get stuck in stuck in a loop of temps due to the agency charging client companies high fees to buy you out.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    fun coworkers
    summer Fridays
    nothing else

    Cons

    horrible partners
    cheap on everything
    bad technology
    no life balance
    chairmans is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should care more about your employees instead of phone stats. This place is horrible. By far the worst place to work, they do not care about you at all. The locums division in particular is horrible, Kyle one of the partners is so rude, and does not know what he's doing. I would not recommend working for these thieves. Avoid at all costs. The turnover rate is so incredibly high with this place for a reason! They always are hiring because they can't keep employees.

    Pros

    Accounting Team is amazing. The CFO is one of the best persons I've ever worked for, and would do anything to answer a question or have time to help you complete your task at hand. The main three directors are some of the best colleagues anyone could ask for.

    Cons

    The top of the line management (partners) are not some of the best people to work for. It is strictly a business to them and could not care for a minute about anything besides the money.
