    Very easy to work for; drama free..

    Cons

    Sometimes contracting work is not always the best, as oppose to being a actual employee..

    Pros

    People, environment, collaborative approach. It was nice to work with a good team of folks who cared about what they did, and cared about doing it right.

    Cons

    Got merged with Akimeka, another VSE subsidiary, and Akimeka is not only the worst company I've ever worked for, it's the worst company I've ever seen. Everybody good bailed after the merger.

    Advice to Management

    It was good while it lasted!

    Pros

    The leadership was fabulous. The company fostered a team environment.

    Cons

    G&B was purchased by VSE Corporation and eventually G&B was combined with another wholly owned subsidiary of VSE.

    Advice to Management

    Values, Training and Office Culture were amazing

    Pros

    This company was a good company to work for. It supports its employees and contractors with benefits and SkillSoft training.

    Cons

    Wages were a bit on the low side, and raises were either nonexistent or so small that they were insignificant. The supplemental vision insurance is a complete waste of money considering that Aetna's health insurance provides much better vision insurance plan than the supplemental insurance plan. Supplemental vision insurance was previously needed because the previous health insurance provider had a poor vision insurance component.

    Advice to Management

    I have heard that there were big pay cuts at where I worked after I left. Pay cuts are a good way to cut talent, and without talent, you are nothing.


  6. Had an excellent run and only decided to leave based on new opportunity.

    Pros

    The people, the environment, the management.

    Cons

    The building was less then expected. Air would always go down during the heat of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.


  7. Overall, not bad. Upper management - decent

    Pros

    Good benefits, capable and pleasant co-workers

    Cons

    I encountered a rather inexperienced, unprofessional,inept supervisor/Project manager

    Advice to Management

    When you've got an employee providing good service and exceptional value to a client as well as good income to the company, do something to defend and support them in the face of bungling rookie supervisors within your company and on the clients' side.

    Pros

    The environment is somewhat relaxed and seems to be overall supportive from the management.

    The company promotes improvement and promotional opportunities.

    Cons

    There is no one looking out for the employee but the employee. The company was a lot better years ago and has continued to lack employee support.

    Although the company seems to support you in excelling, they somehow hold you back from doing so.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a lot more support of your employees to excel and be able to get a better position within the company or as a government employee.

    There should be more support in general since there is always someone asking for employees to back the company.


  9. I have been working at G&B Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers have been very helpful to work with and making sure that all of the work is completed. Managers are not micro-managing which is good for employee morale.

    Cons

    There is sometimes not enough communication from management. There has been more communication lately which is good and it shows that they're making a better effort.

    Advice to Management

    There's always room for growth. Ensure that there is communication with employees. Work with us and we will work with you.

    Pros

    Co-workers (usually) make the job bearable

    Cons

    Senior Management is somewhat .. sociopathic..
    Underpaid, Management will ask you to work every weekend with no compensation; then after requesting that you do the necessary things for the contract - will fire you when the procedure documentation they provided you is incorrect.

    Advice to Management

    Hiding screwups is worse than making them.
