Pros

Individual branches are given tremendous autonomy. Top sales producers are rewarded well.

Cons

The GBS management model approximates a franchise model with very little support from HQ. The company is not remotely interested in employing the "best and brightest".

Advice to Management

The entire senior management team is focused on acquisitions to the detriment of organic growth support.

    Pros

    The hours are good. The work is structured, yet- its in the hands of the person that does the work.

    Cons

    There's a lot of work and the company as a whole doesn't pay its employees very well. It doesn't matter how much you are in charge of, what you do, how long you stay, you will not be paid what you are worth.

    Advice to Management

    There is more than one way of doing things. Be open to ideas. Pay your employees for the hard work that they do.

    Pros

    Lunch with vendors, and other misc perks from vendors

    Cons

    Outdated computer systems; constantly freezing or shutting down. Very unmanageable workload. Major micro-managing, totally out of control with no Supv support. Allegedly paperless, but without any uniform process; a real nightmare. Overabundance of emails from mgmt were a major distraction to completing work. Client/customer satisfaction no longer the focus, just a numbers game. Very low morale, lack of communication, no team atmosphere, more like CYOA. A lot of pressure to work OT, no personal life (I worked over 70 hrs/wk). Frozen pay...unless you were an office pet. Very unprofessional office manager; i.e. if you were not related or hand-picked, your life was made miserable to the point of forcing you to quit or be fired. No job security...the overall tone was you could easily be replaced...and many were.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror, listen to yourselves
