    Good clients. Good colleagues. There were snacks for awhile.

    I worked at SterlingFreeman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers, Great Clients, Flexible hours & Able to work from home.

    Cons

    I worked here for over a year. At first everything was great. I was learning a lot and all of my coworkers were amazing. I got along well with everyone. Slowly I guess business decisions were made and everything went down hill VERY QUICKLY. Checks were constantly late, we were always afraid if we were going to get paid or not. Slowly over time, one owed check became two and then two became three.. He made a lot of promises and couldn't deliver and a lot of really good people were seriously in a lot of financial trouble because of him. DO NOT WORK WITH HIM, STAY AWAY. A lot of manipulation and lies..

    I have been working at SterlingFreeman full-time

    Pros

    Great Team. Great Clients. Great Industry. Used to be a wonderful place to work. Not sure how intentional some/all of this was. It may have been an accident. Like a really big happy accident

    Cons

    I have been receiving late paychecks on and off for the last year and I am still owed money. How much? I'm not sure. His math and my math did not match. And he won't respond about why it does or does not. Either I do not have the correct contact information for the Managing Director or he is ignoring me. While I would like to assume that he's ignoring me...none of this can be confirmed. Clients have reached out to me to say that they have not heard from him and that they would like their refundable deposit back. I've sent them everything I know in regards to his whereabouts; but I don't know much more than them. A client has informed me that they can no longer work with our organization because of a letter they received from the IRS that instructs them to be paid first. I have not seen the letter, but I do trust my client. A colleague has informed me that Michael has requested a loan from them. I was never formally let go or fired. Just sent inaccurate pay stubs that did not match any of the amounts received. While some coworkers and clients have heard from him, I have not. Not sure how he picks and chooses who to respond to, but it's definitely not me.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SterlingFreeman full-time

    Pros

    Was a great place to work until about 2016 with a simple yet successful business strategy.

    Cons

    Too many changes in business model, hired too many uneccesary staff in an attempt to grow the company too fast. Frequently paid late. Bounced paychecks. Lies and deceit by owner.
