    I have been working at GeoFields full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    GeoFields strives to be the best in our field by hiring the brightest, aggressive, most personable employees who aim for the highest quality work day in and day out. The office space is open and inviting and the people are truly a delight to work with. Dialogue is encouraged among departments and management listens to any concerns one might have. If one is looking to get a foothold into the GIS Pipeline industry, come give GeoFields a look.

    Cons

    Traffic in Midtown Atlanta can be a headache, but GeoFields is conveniently located next to MARTA, Atlanta's rapid transit system. Many employees have found this to be a benefit and alternative solution to Atlanta's traffic issues.

    I have been working at GeoFields full-time

    Pros

    Nice office location (Midtown)
    Oil and gas industry clients (one of the more stable industries in the current economy)

    Cons

    Lots of yelling
    Lack of teamwork
    Finger pointing instead of constructive solutions when problems arise
    Poor employee morale
    Lack of flexibility with regard to work schedules
    Failure to meet critical deadlines
    Departments do not work well together despite being a smaller company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Geofields is very different from other companies in the industry with its command and control structure. Many similar companies foster a work-life balance and allow flexibility as workload ebbs and flows. Start trusting in your employees more and quit using fear-based tactics to motivate them. Encourage teamwork and hold employees accountable that aren't team players.
