Pros

- Good salaries
- Friendly leadership
- Ample training and learning opportunities
- You can create your own path to success

Cons

- Anuual re-orgs are the norm
- GPS is being forced to integrate more with the accounting side of the firm, including financially
- Annual performance review process is too cumbersome for everyone involved

Advice to Management

- Scrap the "coach" role because although it is nice in theory, it is minimal value-added.
- What the heck is GPS 2.0? Better change management, please.

    Pros

    Due to the small size of the firm, staff have opportunities to work on a great variety of projects.

    Cons

    The work environment can be concluded with two words -- "drama factory".

    Advice to Management

    Office politics is unfortunately important, but it shouldn't be all there is. If someone who is smart and has good skills, learn from them, don't just try to get rid of them in order to secure your own position.


  2. Lots of Office Politics

    Pros

    Better hours than big 4, good variety of clients

    Cons

    Too much travel, long hours during busy season. management vocally promotes the need to be fully chargable, but then fails to deliver clients and work...

    Advice to Management

    More telecommuting options whenever possible, there is no need to spend 10+hour days all week at the office or client sites
