      I have been working at Oliver James Associates full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      ● The training has been great, coming from a previous company I can see the drastic differences. ● Energetic environment where everyone feeds off each other and wants to succeed ● Managers and directors are helpful and eager to see people succeed. ● Great incentives

      Cons

      None so far. I don't mind the hours as you can see the outcome reflected in others who have been there longer.

      Advice to Management

      Great people to learn from. Continue leading by example
