    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.

    I worked at The Execu|Search Group full-time (Less than a year)

    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 snow storms where cities shut down, but the hire ups at TESG pressure you to risk your life and battle the elements. Most of these reviews are fabricated from people who currently work there to restore their image. Even if you work 60-70 hours a week, the expectation is that you should work more.

    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,

    I worked at The Execu|Search Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and a lot of motivated, young colleagues . A lot of support across business lines. Leadership is supportive and approachable.

    Cons

    Margins, money, earnings, above all mentality. This is reaffirmed from Senior Leadership down. Everything, including the commision structure, is based off how much money you can make off each person who is working/generating revenue. If you are currently working with execu-search for a job opening, know that the "max rate" they quoted you is a complete farse and based off set margins they have to abide by.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the the people who are paying your bills. Whether they are Temp, Temp-to-Perm, or Perm, understand that u you will never achieve company goals without recognizing and rewarding the people who are in the trenches, making money for you.
