    I have been working at GEP full-time

    Pros

    As a first-year, I was granted invaluable consulting experience and growth opportunities by directly working with clients. It was a rewarding feeling, especially coming fresh out of college and being able to quickly notice my value and the direct impact I had on projects and their success.

    GEP talent pool consists of really bright individuals that keep me motivated and inspired. The supportive work environment instills confidence in me so I am ready to face the challenges that I seek in my position.

    Cons

    This might not be a con for some people, but GEP offers consultants autonomy and they will provide consultants with more challenging work or responsibility to help them grow. Not every worker can handle this, but go-getters certainly thrive in this environment.

    I have been working at GEP full-time

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. True global exposure. Flat, merit driven, people friendly culture. Good opportunities for growth if one is willing to learn fast and apply themselves.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains - stretch, frequent changes
    Brand still under represented in the market relative to actual capabilities - both business and employer perspectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain culture as the company grows in size. Communicate more. Focus on doing a few things really well.

    I have been working at GEP

    Pros

    Excellent network of people - a lot of assets to leverage. Sometimes you need to call out for help and there is always someone to help you. The clients have high expectations and you have to manage those expectations. I have never exerpienced such a great culture where people are always willing to help you.

    Cons

    One challenge was to try to understand how to work closely with different people throughout the company. My mentor helped me develop a network of partners and relationships to facilitate my understanding of our capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shared Services should continue to offer lots of opportunities for employees to network outside of the office.

    I have been working at GEP

    Pros

    The great thing about GEP is the vast amount of knowledge you have at your disposal. The company is still relatively new; you cannot compare it to one that has been in existence for over 50-100 years. There is room for growth if you work at it. If you are looking for a normal 9-5 where you can get away with doing the bare minimum, this company is not for you.

    Cons

    At times the clients set unrealistic expectations, but management will do whatever it takes to meet it; including working long hours over the weekend.

    I have been working at GEP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am currently working with GEP for one year now. Based on my observations, I would say this is one of the best companies I worked so far. One important cultural aspect of this company is the absence of politics and power games, people are here quite strait forward and maintain open communication which is something uncommon in most of the companies today.

    Cons

    I feel that the company needs to concentrate on strengthening the internal systems and processes. Most of the employee feel they work 12 hours per day, 6 days a week and still not have sufficient time to get everything done. They begin to complain about "overload" and excessive stress. This is one of the symptoms of growth which needs to addressed ASAP, which help sustain the growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management team should seriously involve in strategic planning exercise, which will give clarity to the second line leaders to plan the tactical and operational as aspects efficiently. I am sure this will eventually ensure employee satisfaction.
