    Pros

    As a young professional wanting to be actively involved in the startup culture in the bay TheLions provides a unique and unparalleled vantage point and experience working with companies that want to change the world. My co-employees are driven, hungry, motivated and exceptionally sharp able to fulfill any sales requirement a startup may need.

    Cons

    Many of the tools are processes are good but still a work in progress. Standard of living in SF is quite high.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Continue to grow into other cities that want to a taste of the startup city vibe of the bay area.

    Pros

    The Lions possesses a fantastic working environment and great company culture. The employees and management are great to work with, very supportive and willing to help in any way.

    Cons

    The internship lacked structure and formulated review/training. The lack of structure made the work difficult and figuring out exactly what the requirements and responsibilities were was another added difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    Great Company with a great working environment, culture and future. For future interns maybe create a more structured program and be more specific with their responsibilities and duties

    Pros

    The team is always laughing during the day (while kicking ass). Management shows true compassion. Strong base + commissions + equity packages, ESPECIALLY for recruiting. Sales support is heavily invested in. Located in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

    Cons

    The office is getting a little cramped...

    Advice to Management

    Grow beyond SF & NYC

    Pros

    The Lions provides a unique opportunity for youthful and ambitious sales professionals to be part of a entrepreneurial dreams and use their talents and creative energy to directly contribute to the growth of a innovative, early stage start-up. The transparent management creates a work environment where all opinions are valued and the group can caucus about ever changing policies while also collaborating and perfecting the overall mission of the company. It's unique ability to encourage personal growth and performance while also maintaing a united team, is forward thinking, modern and embodies the start-up culture in every sense of the word.

    Cons

    Because The Lions is still establishing it's identity in the recruitment industry and working to overcome the typical stigmas against traditional recruitment methods, some of the systems are not set in stone. Although this is a positive in many ways, it can also provide challenges when road blocks present themselves and team members struggle to find the best approach with out a default uniform systematic process.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to address the team as a whole but look carefully at each individual style and when trying to encourage, motivate or constructively criticize, tailor your approach to that you are speaking into each person's listening.

    Pros

    Great startup atmosphere. Entirely new concept for a combination of think tank and recruiting firm. Awesome to harness data on majority of sales people and the companies that employ(ed) them to provide benchmarking data to the industry. Fun, yet professional environment. Great events and parties. Weekly poker tournaments! Equity into the firm.

    Cons

    The same struggles as with any startup - sometimes the structure of the company can be confusing, and while we do have health benefits, I'd like to see 401k and other benefits eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Completely happy with management - no complaints at all.

    Pros

    Smart and driven team and management. Working hard to innovate in a meaningful way in an otherwise stale, traditional business. Located in a very cool office in downtown San Francisco. Management really cares about all of the company's stakeholders -- clients, employees, and partners.

    Cons

    The company is small at this point, despite their grand ambitions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to match your vision for The Lions.
