Challenging, interesting work with a lot of sacrifice.

Management Team (Former Employee)
Reston, VA

I worked at Gate Gourmet

ProsAlways being put to the test. Great opportunity to prove yourself and tackle unexpected challenges. You will never get bored. Go home proud of what you achieve each and every day.

ConsVery long hours and unreasonably high expectations! No work-life balance. Poor benefits package. Promotion and job security not necessarily based on performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the political finger pointing and take responsibility for your own actions. Hire competent managers for the operating units and provide them the necessary tools to get the job done. Reach out to employees at all levels of the organization as opposed to isolating yourself and believing everything your immediate reports tell you. Definitely work on improving work conditions!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
