Pros

The best reasons to work @ Guidance are opportunity in a field that is unsaturated, the comp plan is aggressive and the solutions are not commoditized. With corporation litigation not slowing down and security only getting tighter, our platform is solid and supports some of the largest global companies out there. Our reputation is a strong sign of our success over the past 15 years...

Cons

The only downside of this company is the FSA total is only $3000 in comparism to other company;s where it is @ least $6000.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The presidents club trips are extremely motivating! Would love to see quarterly incentives as well...

    For the most part, it was just okay. Although, many days were just down right difficult to muddle through.

    Pros

    The people! You spend a lot of time with your colleagues and this company has quite a few great and talented professional people.

    Cons

    Mgmt is not really honest and trustworthy. You will spend a fair amount of time covering your rear so that your immediate manager doesn't throw you under the bus because they don't understand how a process works (although you've explained it time and time again). And, they will not apologize for being wrong. Owning up to your mistakes is a vital quality trait that is lacking at Guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is too top heavy. How many VP's of sales does one need? That money should be put to better use for the indians who are truly behind Guidance's success.

    Pros

    - Professional, honest, friendly people to work with.
    - Excellent work/life balance, compared to other companies.
    - Believes and lives its corporate values (so far).
    - High respect for its management.
    - Very little employee turnover.

    Cons

    - Let's see if the company can continue maintain those pro's as it grows into a larger company.
    - HR process for hiring can be long and frustrating without little communication from the recruiter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your core corporate values as you expand the company. Continue to respect and trust your employees, and they will continue to perform for you. Please improve your HR process for hiring.
