I worked at gdkn

Pros

The senior mamagement team is extremely knowledgable and if you are fortunate to work closley with them and able to overlook certain aspects you will be able to learn alot. It is due only to the V-P and Presdnt that the firm has gotten where they are today and wil continue continue to grow in spite of the flaws within the corporation.

Cons

office is extremely clickish to point of where its uncomfortable to go to work. Being a small office compared to "normal"' corporation there is no place "to hide" in order to professionally avoid that feeling and continue to work effectively. Even when you do a good job (very few times in eyes of management) you are acknowledgded in a condesending manner which diminishes its worth. The pay is not good and the office is demanding. Their benefits are below standard and policies are not in alignment w corporate standards. Majority of workers that do stay are not happy w management (verging on hatred) but come in do their work , deal with daily nonsense and abuse and leave. Almost the entire staff has something to say about how they are treated and handled unfavorable yet will not approach upper management (some are managers themselves) to discuss the situation. It is a chore to get to work and make it thru the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just talk the talk. Practice what you preach. You paint a perfect picture yet the image is destroyed once the work begins. Listen and learn from your all employees. If treated properly and rewarded justly you wouldl have a great team. Employees are miserable for valid reasons that you ignore. Learn to trust your employees in their competencies and truely allow them the envirnoment to nuture their growth and potential.

    I have been working at gdkn full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Executive Management is hard working
    Multiple layers of support
    Impressive Software development team
    Have an issue, ask someone in the management team and they will quickly come up with a software solution

    Cons

    Not much room for error. Make a mistake and its visible to all.
    High performance expectations due to client pressures.
    Not just an 8-5 job
    You sign up for one job and pretty soon you find yourself doing many additional things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it fun. Spend some time and money on coordinating fun team building activities.
