I have been working at Robbins-Gioia full-time

Pros

New management team determined to turn company around; some visionaries; willing to spend money and "do it right" in most areas.

Cons

Lack of unified vision among partners leads to splintering of strategy; unwillingness of some partners to try new initiatives (off-set to some extent by willingness of others); lots of dead wood and less than optimal co-workers remaining from the old company staff; could use a house-cleaning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider a thorough evaluation of staff with more than 10 years tenure and seriously asking some to move on; be more receptive to new, innovative ideas which can be proven cost-effective against results.

    I have been working at Robbins-Gioia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    New management, flexibility, autonomy, no micro-management, each have own office, great pay, great benefits, training and education are paid for, a lot of room to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    Social culture is non-existent (though, I know they are trying to fix that)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More social activities will really liven up the employees (I know there is a bit of transition, though, so I think we can be patient); also monthly staff meetings would be beneficial to keep the communication flowing.

    I have been working at Robbins-Gioia

    Pros

    The on site staff on my account are some of the best people I have ever worked with. Highly motivated smiled and passionate people

    Cons

    Head quarters IT has been mailing it in for years. Laptops don't work. Support division passes the buck. What's worse is the leadership of the group has no leadership skills. He permits a lazy over paid workforce to get worse daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more respect for on site employees. Our efforts pay the bills. When we need support take a proactive approach when supporting our needs!
