    - Bonuses are very limited and small

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your employees and work together instead of against each other. We all work for the same company and want everyone to succeed. Start promoting more people from within and help train the people that you already have staffed, then to keep hiring people that don’t know the business model.

    Pros

    They match 6% of your base salary when contributing to 401k.
    You will make more money than you ever thought possible.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, it is unlikely they will retain you after your first assignment. Every assignment is treated as a separate job. The size of the company requires you to apply for every position almost as if you are applying for a job with another job. Barely any retention unless you are hired directly to their GBU home office. All classes and benefits are only offered to those currently working at the home office. Nothing is ever offered (classes, presentations, lunch-n-learn, etc.) at a field assignment. Most of the employees are on assignment and are ignored.
