    I have been working at G L E Associates full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful working conditions in all 7 branches. Fair salaries and good helth benefits. Nice combination of architecture, engineering and environmental services with loyal clients kept the company very strong through the last 5 years when other companies either downsized considerably or failed. Most of the managers have been with the company over 15 years and are very loyal.

    Cons

    Upper Manager could communicate better with employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with employees - both positive and negative. They need your input

    I enjoyed the job at first, but was relieved to get out of there after a few years.

    I worked at G L E Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff are nice and try to shield each other from the creepy, prying eyes of 'upper' management.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Looks good at first until you learn how the place is run. Bully behavior is encouraged, there is little if any real professionalism, they will kick you to the curb if they believe it will gain them a buck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I see no hope there so will not waste my time.

    Pros

    Some of the people that work there are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Horrible medical benefits, no support from supervisors, no recognition, the company is a revolving door, so much favoritism, they do not keep thier promises, management is untrustworthy, they are the first to throw you under the bus, women are inferior and nothing you do is ever good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff, there is a reason why people don't stay employed long.

    Pros

    Convenient location in town. Medical and/or dental benefits are about what you would expect for an average company of this size.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. No talent retention. Not much projected company growth. Dead end positions for some career tracks. Low pay range compared to similar companies in the local region. No recognition for hard work. Under-qualified employees "grandfathered" in to the positions they have now. Too much nepotism. Positions have been made-up in an effort to keep friends employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on recognizing talent and give credit where it's due. Reduce talent loss. Treat all employees fairly. Instill workplace maturity and professionalism in staff.

    I have been working at G L E Associates

    Pros

    Work is tolerable, occasionally rewarding. Dental, medical and 401K benefits. Good work/life balance. Company matching on donations made to select few local charities.

    Cons

    The "good ol' boy" system is very strong here and very cliquey. The company seems to be at a plateau. It's been around for over couple of decades and has not advanced beyond it's comfort zone. There has also been a high turn-around rate since hired here (too many people coming and going). The different departments are too segregated. Unless you stand up for yourself, discrimination is allowed without question. With the economic downturn, some employees were starting to get treated unfairly and it slowly became a popularity contest not based on work ethic. clan rally's would be set up to "push" certain employees out that don't fit into their social circle. There is a very small town mentality. When times are tough, be ready to get another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly treat people as the most important asset of the company. Take the time to instill in leaders the importance of communicating with staff and treating all employees with respect. This way you finally get to keep the good/competent employees. Replace the "high school" with professionals and the company will go far.

    I worked at G L E Associates

    Pros

    There is nothing much to provide in this section. On the business side, they are relatively okay. As far as how employees are treated: They are very good at reinacting grade school. Excellent at prejudging and slandering certain groups of people in order to protect themselves.

    Cons

    Unprofessional behavior is tolerated to the point of becoming close to a legal issue with employees. HR casts a blind eye. The work culture needs improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps more training on professionalism in the workplace would be helpful. Focus on treating employees as human beings. Keep discrimination to a minimum.
