    Pros

    Everyone at TFG is supportive and encouraging. There is opportunity for advancement. The compensation is fair, and increases as you grow.

    Cons

    I wish everyone could have their own office. But, I guess that’s not possible.

    I worked at The Fountain Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    none - most of the real, bad reviews are removed after the company complains they are getting called out for their nonsense. I recommend going to google. Not as many reviews but a more realistic insight into the type of shop this place runs.

    Cons

    Just about anything you could think of. They threw a ping pong table out on the floor to give the place some "culture" but they have no clue. None whatsoever. There is no helping this place either. These days there are so many other companies that DO get it, and value their employees for more than their production output. Why waste your time here, its pointless. Trust me when I tell you, you can easily find a better company to dedicate your time to.

    Pros

    Might learn how to recruit.

    Cons

    Unprofessional. Many workers high while working. Violence is accepted high level leader assaulted another and no punishment. Told to fake candidate emails. HR is a running joke.

    I have been working at The Fountain Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In my experience, TFG has always treated its employees with respect, fairness and consideration. It is a really fun place to work and has a family feel. There is open communication between the employees and management. Employees are encouraged to discuss their compensation with the accounts department, and I know TFG immediately addresses all concerns. TFG makes me feel valuable and appreciated and I have great respect for its leadership. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    My primary cons are the crazy negative ratings I see on this site. It amazes me the things that people will make up. Drugs and sex at parties? Really people!? I guess that's all part of an anonymous forum. However, everyone who reads the cons should take into consideration that former employees are often disgruntled, and former for a reason.

    Pros

    Very laid back, there is no micro management once you have established yourself. If you hustle, and work hard, there is money to be made. You can't just show up, actually working is required, some people don't seem to grasp that concept and don't understand why they don't make more money. Plenty of support if your progress gets stale

    Cons

    Benefits suck, PTO sucks. Hours worked, hours paid.
