    Pros

    If you need a pay check, they give you one.

    Cons

    If at all possible, stay away from working at this company. The entire executive leadership team is completely out of their depth, not to mention most of the leaders here in general. Their offices look modern, but their practices, procedures, and policies are more akin to those of a 1950's company. High levels of turnover and gross inequity in pay among different groups are just a couple of the reasons you'll regret working here.

    I have been working at The Reed Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None... seriously this company is a joke! Terrible management and people are promoted based on who management likes. You can be a great employee and you will never be rewarded.

    Cons

    Terrible management - crap hours - terrible work life balance - management will do what ever they can to make your job as miserable as possible. No bonuses. We had a stupid bagel party for Christmas as a way of management saying thank you..

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a fair chance and open positions! Management in the Orlando office is the worse. They hire who they know so if you want to move up then simply kiss you know what and make sure the managers know you. You can be a terrible employee and they will still promote you.

    I worked at The Reed Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This place is awesome at first. Espresso machine...Free fountain drinks..etc

    Cons

    Training is good the first two weeks. Beware the next week. You get the OCD control freak who will fail all minorities. I was top of the class and she stopped me from succeeding because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new trainer for this so called " academy bay" where you have ridiculous high standards to meet. Once I passed all tests with a 100 and then was told I failed twice I knew it was bs clocked out and went home.. get a new trainer because you all will stay with a high turnover with her for academy bay.

    Pros

    Good technology, willingness to invest in all areas of business - technology and other equipment, hiring, adding new roles - and genuine feeling that leadership from the top down care about serving the end customers well. Willingness to be nimble.

    Cons

    As part of the contingent acquired from Aon, I was used to a certain level of management organization and expertise. At Aon, most everything is well planned out with a drilled down level of detail and instruction. ReedGroup, so far, appears to be more conceptual and less detail-oriented, which can be challenging. It was a somewhat difficult transition from Aon.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to learn about and from the culture of any new group of employees you are bringing into the company; have resources available to support those new employees during the transition.
