Fantastic! Yes, we have to work hard. Doing the job well is its own reward, but management frequently goes out of their way to express thanks for that hard work. It really makes the place happy.
Support from management
Management always has the employee's best interests in mind, even when weighing difficult decisions. Sincere trust is a two way street and it has definitely been earned.
Most of what I do is autonomous, but requires input from other departments. Most of the time everything is well synced and flows smoothly.
Freedom to work independently
Speaking for myself, management shows trust and loyalty to workers who are out in the field. I have never questioned whether calling the office for clarification was a good idea or not.
This is a difficult industry to advance in. Eventually the only path left is to start your own company. I choose to retire from RealSource later on.
Overall compensation for your work
As a smaller company, it is hard to compete. There currently isn't a health insurance option, though it has been stated that management will look into options after more growth. I don't feel that to be a hollow promise.
Suggestions for improvement
- Honestly, I can't think of any currently. The company founders have plans for expansion, increase of benefits, and good employee compensation goals. If all of those things fall into place (according to planning), then the employees that built the foundation will be elevated as it grows. That excites me!
What I like about the company
If you're not scared of putting in the work, this place is greatly rewarding. Management shows passion for their employees and it really brings the team spirit together. Knowledge, commitment, and market strength are three things I can immediately think of with this company. I look forward to a very long term employment there.
What I dislike about the company
It is rare, but sometimes individual personalities override the whole. The team spirit is sacrificed for the wants of a smaller group (or individual). Management is excellent as seeing and combating that trend, but it can make things difficult when no one from management is around the office.
