The people at GFI are great, but there is not a lot of room for professional advancement.

Pros

You will learn how to sell. Of course, there is high pressure to meet you monthly quotas and the management team will absolutely hold you to them. Good place to develop your sales ability.

Cons

They have a revolving door of young sales people and a core group of 5 or so top earners who have all the major accounts cornered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate sales people with some kind of residual salary that will stop the exodus of talent and the high turnover. Lower turnover would mean less time spent training new employees.

    I worked at GFI Digital full-time

    Pros

    Very helpful co-workers, a decent place to work until you find your place in life.

    Cons

    Pay is no where near where it should be for the Techs, No room for advancement that I saw, instead of raises you get to drive out of town for a "meeting". "Benefits" are way too high!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher starting salary for techs, Sales should be on the same level as the Techs , not made out to be gods!! Find better and cheaper insurance packages for families.

    Pros

    Good People
    You get paid... I guess.

    Cons

    No room for advancement
    Tattling encouraged
    Low pay and promises of "raises" that rarely happen
    Sales Team under intense pressure to generate "Net-New Customers"
    Warehouse & Admins under intense pressure to keep up without adding any support
    Completely averse to change of any kind
    Forced social gatherings take the place of raises, benefits, or time-off
    Managers fail to understand basic business concepts
    No reward for extra-time or effort
    Pretend to care about employees
    Very secretive (despite forcing all employees to watch a video from 1980 every year about how important it is to share all information with employees)
    Thinking, creativity, and innovation are discouraged
    Benefits are a joke and only exist because of new federal laws
    Offices spread out across 3 states, but they try to manage all branches from 1 location
    Have a habit of preaching about the importance of things that they never do (communicate, evaluate the process, treat people with respect, etc.)
    Reward incompetent employees and ignore the hard-working, intelligent, courteous, intelligent ones
    Customer service is horrible
    Unbelievable markups on all equipment, service, and supplies
    View all employees as "replaceable"
    Short-sighted goals and strategies
    A very non-diverse staff (white, males, 30-50; women are only in receptionist-like positions)
    Make promises that are rarely kept
    Sexual harassment is condoned

    And so on and so forth...
    If you are employed there, I'm sorry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
