    Industry leading retail performance experts who are passionate about what they do, powered by an innovative business solution with real market potential. People are very collaborative and team work is important.

    As in many small company, priorities can shift. You need to be flexible, take initiative, and be self-motivated.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to build a ship, do not divide the men into teams and send them to the forest to cut wood. Instead, teach them to long for the vast and endless sea. Stay vigilant to the power of your vision. Lead the industry.

    I have been working at The Yacobian Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at TYG is a unique experience, largely because of how much your individual contributions matter. We're not a "large" company, but we work with some major organizations in the retail space, many thousands of times larger than we are... Everyone is working on something client focused, so you really do feel like your daily work is making an impact.

    Plus, our clients are in an industry we experience every day. It's a really cool feeling to see what you work on every day get used in the "real world." You feel really connected to it... for me that's incredibly unique and and I think that everyone here gets to impact it in their own way.

    Aside from that, the benefits and compensation are great & the office is pretty easy to get to.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of hand holding. You get the opportunity to work on multiple projects, but you have to manage your priorities.
