Challenging and Rewarding

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Reston, VA

Pros-Fast paced work place where you are consistently challenged.
-Opportunity to learn a great deal about IT, databases, financial management systems.
-Opportunity to advance to higher positions.
-Helpful cowokers and seniors who guide you throughout your tenure.
-Engaging atmosphere where you never feel isolated.
-A steep learning curve which makes the work all the more rewarding.
-Young, energetic, and willing staff.
-Competitive pay and benefits.

Cons-Staffing is an issue, teams are oftentimes over extended which means issues get ignored and clients are then dissatisfied.
-Conflict of interest between providing a staffed and functional help desk and moving
help desk members on to higher positions.
-Over ambitious promises to clients while not tending to staffing needs.
-Takes new employees too long before they can contribute.
-Greater transparency from management of what is expected of employees.
-Better structure so senior management can focus on bigger picture items.
-Better work life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe best advice I can provide to management is to enhance its resource planning. There are so many talented people here that are over extended. Improving staffing would go a long way to improving the work environment. Better communication between management and teams should also be an area of focus. Not everyone responds well to being chastised in front of their peers. I think leadership is committed and I do see a concerted effort to improve overall operations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at GCE


    Pros: 1) If you're willing, you can learn a lot. 2) Once you work ++ hours there's an excellent sense of camaraderie. 3) Eager workforce 4) Most people honestly… Cons: 1) Several times if I told HR something seemingly in confidence, within moments my supervisor would pull me into their office to discuss the matter. 2)… Advice to Senior Management: 1) Manage your process better. Get a ticketing system not just for the helpdesk but involve development as well. Create User stories and defects in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
