Pros

Great Pay
Great Training
Great opportunities for advancement and strong encouragement to do so. Rewarded for staying with the company.

Cons

Work Life Balance was hard to handle at first. Gets better the longer you stay with the company. They really try to help you balance, really seem like they care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at the top (GPS managing partner, COO, strategy officer) and with infrastructure leads and staff. Get rid of partners who won't work as a team. Rebuild with a competent, credible leader.

    Started out well. However, the politics, brown nosing, and backstabbing became unbearable
