Support from management
The CEO was one of the smartest people in the business. Very well connected. Willing to introduce the team to high level political "movers and shakers." Very influential in building my career!
Unfortunately like with most privately owned businesses, there are very few promotional opportunities. What you do get is great experience.
Overall compensation for your work
CEO paid everyone 15% above Market. It was part of their mantra. They believe people who do the work, should earn the bulk of the money. Great to work with a team of folks who are not greedy and willing to share in the profits.
Office / Work Environment
These guys believe in hard work, 'literally.' You are expected to put in 60+ hours, but it's needed to keep up with the high standards they deliver to their clients.
Great company. Although, I'm a Conservative (these folks are progressives) I never felt out of place. Great GOP relationships including current Governor's and Presidential Candidates. Open to all ideas and views from both sides of the aisle.
Image is everything. Very brand aware.
Inclusive / Diverse
It was like working for the United Nations. Most team member spoke at least 2-3 foreign languages. If you are looking for a world view, come work at FMS Global Strategies.
Suggestions for improvement
- I just wish you guys had a larger base of clients and your firm could offer promotional job opportunities.
What I like about the company
Good work environment, lots of opportunities to build your brand, rolodex and political contacts. Exciting issues and legislative responsibilities.
What I dislike about the company
Limited advancement opportunities.
