Pros

Glynlyon is an almost family like company. The departments seem to take care of their own. The health insurance and benefits packages are outstanding. The company does seem to care about it's employees. When employees have ideas for improvement and are willing to put in extra and fight for them, they are typically given room and resources to do so. Pro-activeness is encouraged and appreciated. Customer service is first class and will constantly bend over backwards for customers.

Cons

Glynlyon is a very reactionary company. The products and services offered are typically years behind the competition and are not innovative. Company growth does not appear to be aggressive and the culture seems to be "this is good enough, it works" instead of "that's not good enough, what would make us the leader?". The corporate culture is not progressive and is very slow to adapt. Compensation seems low compared to similar jobs. The office environments are old and seem like they would fit perfectly in with the '70s and '80s white collar cubicle farms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update the office environments. Progressively and aggressively act on new products and technology. Rennovate and innovate to be ahead of the competition. Allow employees more input on future growth. Sometimes employees see farther ahead than management will and certainly hear the customers' wants and needs more closely than management can. Listen to the customers and be and do exactly what they want. Anticipate what they want if possible.

    Short sighted bureaucracy and infuriating systems to program in.

    Cons

    The web systems are horribly and inefficiently developed and working in them is an effort in futility.
    Management is slow to take action on important issues.
    Contractors are treated poorly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the problems that are occurring instead of sidestepping the issues until they're forced to be fixed.

  2. What an insightful,concerned and employee friendly place to work.
