    Pros

    Everyone is nice and works as a team to get the job done. Management is flexible in balancing home/work life.

    Cons

    When working on any type of event, it can get crazy at times. Weeks leading up to the event are very stressful and you are expected to work 24/7 to get the job done and make the client happy. However, this is the nature of the business. Some employees put into leadership positions really do not know how to manage people and can make the work environment a little negative with their attitude. You are expected to bend over and do anything for the client, even if it may not be in the best interest for GPJ and might affect the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look a little closer at who they are putting in leadership roles and whether or not they truly can manage a team and motivate employees. This can really make or break an event. A negative, condescending person in a management position fosters negative attitudes.

    I worked at George P. Johnson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had an awesome time at GPJ over the 6 years I was there. Great culture, great people, amazing clients and fun events. They worked hard and they played hard. I am blessed to have many friends from my time at GPJ.

    Cons

    OK pay, but you need to negotiate high going into the business because it's rare the big pay rises will happen. The only time I had a significant pay rise was being counter offered after a job offer from a competitor. There wasn't much focus on training and development of staff, and as a result people sadly moved away. Senior Management politics were at play about the time I was leaving which led to very low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value and invest in your people. Value them by saying thank you and tell them when they have done a good job.
