    I worked at The Execu|Search Group full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance and flexibility. Fantastic marketing team. You make good friends who turn into family here. Payroll team is really nice and patient. A lot of opportunity at the beginning of your career to grow professionally. Fun happy hours and company outings and events. A lot of opportunity to make money at a young age.

    Cons

    A lot of things change that “come from the top” over time without proper explanation. Especially once the equity firm got involved. People get promoted based on merit and/or how much money they make the firm but it’s inconsistent and people who don’t deserve it or are not mature enough to be a leader end up in positions of power that go to their head. Some people who don’t even produce for the firm are in management positions...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people who love their job and are dedicated and are making you money. Don’t neglect those who helped you start something and push them to the side when something better comes along. There is life outside of Execu-Search and when someone moves on with their career it doesn’t make them the bad guy. There is a quote that says people leave their bosses, not their jobs - that’s why so many have moved...

      Pros

      Great company culture. They really invest in our growth and progress. My manager has an open door policy, and he always makes time to assist the team whenever needed. He has allowed me to grow into a position of management and loves promoting from within.

      Cons

      The benefits are only average. They try to make up for it in salary/commission tho, so I guess its break even.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing. The upper management is one of the best parts of the company. You all emphasize a culture of camaraderie and growth.

      Pros

      Can make money if you sell you completely drop everything one and everything in your personal life.

      Cons

      Long hours, no human element, no regard for peoples well beings or anything that is going on outside of work. Cut throat company culture which stems from the people who are in positions of power. I advise anyone who is considering making the switch to work for this company to think long and hard about what you value and what matters to you. If all you care about is making money than this is the place for you. Multiple...

      Advice to Management

      No advice - as long as current CEO is running the place the toxic culture will always exist. He only cares about himself and he puts people in positions of power who are cut throat, mean, aggressive and offensive. Stop acting like the work that you do cures cancer and put it into perspective that all you care about is money,
