    I worked at GG + A full-time (more than a year)


    GG+A is probably the best place to be if you are interested in beginning or growing your career in the philanthropic management industry, or interested in the professional services industry in general. It has a prestigious reputation, which can sometimes contribute to added conservatism, but also leads to a very professional and polished environment. The company definitely values smart and driven people and attracts some of the top fundraisers in the country to the consulting team. There is a lot of learning potential for someone who is newer in their career.

    There were some positive changes made in leadership recently which were already beginning to help improve the day-to-day and overall culture. I thought the benefits were really good and the office is in a great location with amazing views from almost every desk.

    The client list is extremely impressive and everyone at the firm plays a part in helping the clients achieve amazing results.


    GG+A has more of a work hard, work hard culture (as opposed to work hard, play hard) which might be the reason for some turnover issues in the past. There are a lot of really intelligent, good people working for the company and they should be treated as such daily.

    Due to the conservative nature of the company, there were often too many layers of approval required to actually get something out the door, and in the end, the CEO would often overrule all those layers anyways. His demanding nature often inspired fear and stress in his employees, which is unfortunate because I think his demanding nature came from a place of determination (he probably works 360+ days a year) and not dislike for his employees. Since the CEO=GG+A, if he could channel that determination more positively it would make world of difference in the general mood and culture.

    I personally didn't experience enough guidance/mentorship in my position, and much of that was due to turnover, or the wrong person being hired. This might differ across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandate a stricter review structure. It should be a strong(er) company policy that every employee is reviewed at least once a year, regardless of position, and that review should follow standard guidelines.

    There should be more of an open-door policy between lower level employees and leadership to improve the lines of communication. I believe there are many many opportunities for internal growth that could be fostered instead of lost if communication improves.

    Overall this company will give you what you put into it career-wise. I saw several people leave the company who contributed too much to their own displeasure, as well as many people who are excelling because they have a positive outlook. With the positive changes in leadership I think the sky's the limit for the culture here.
