I have been working at GT Software full-time (Less than a year)
GT has a "family" feel, and this is the primary factor in making this a fun place to work. Many people have been here a long time, and have strong relationships. Employees eat and socialize together frequently--far more often than a typical company. This is made easier by the fully stocked kitchen, which is replenished every Monday. The reviews that complain about "junk food" made me laugh--salads, fresh lean meats, rotisserie chicken, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, green tea, etc. But yeah, if you want some chips and salsa and a coke, they have that too. Frequent social outings and corporate events continue to build the cohesive team feel. These are just part of a good work environment, but they matter. Some very bright people work here, and I've learned a lot from them in the time I've been here. What makes a job enjoyable for most people is the work you do and the people you work with. The people at GT are, for the most part, very talented and friendly. A major factor for me in any job is whether it is making me grow personally and professionally. I feel that I am growing at GT. I decided to write a review here because some of the other reviews describe a company that I don't even recognize as the GT Software I work for. Also, I know of no one currently working here who goes around filled with rage at their manager. Not one. You have disagreements between people, and not everyone agrees with every management decision, but this is common in a company, especially one that is approaching new markets. My guess is that some of the bad reviews were written by an angry former employee or something. Notice the bizarre and particular consistencies in the complaints, bad grammar, and even strange phrases repeated, such as: "court jesters." This might be the same angry person. Is GT perfect? No. But considering all aspects, is it an excellent and competitive option in Atlanta? I'd say so.
Company strategy has shifted to target a larger market. There is a certain amount of churn, change, and adjustment as the existing products are aligned with this strategy and new products are developed. A rapidly changing, rapidly moving environment is not for everyone. There is a lot of "history" here, in terms of products and knowledge. It can take awhile to get up to speed on things. The good thing is, the company seems to be putting a lot of effort into helping "on-board" new employees. I wish we could get where we're going faster.
