    Pros

    Flexible schedule, decent pay, good co-workers. Promote from within the company. Management very hands on and helpful, fast pace environment.

    Cons

    The owner is very hard to work for and is always negative. Luckily he is rarely there for extended periods otherwise it would be unbearable.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits would be nice.

    Pros

    The location is about all this place has going for it. I can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    This place is more of a party, clickish type environment. If you're not into tying one on at work or don't kiss the right rear end, you will be singled out and life will be miserable. I also wonder how long this company can keep going. The CEO lacks long term vision and wings it on whims.

    Pros

    G5 provides a great environment to work if you want to have fun. The people and culture are what makes this company tick. Great benefits, and employee engagement programs. Compensation is good for Bend.

    Cons

    There is no long-term vision for where the company is going. It pitches itself as a product company, but operates as a services organization clouded in "FUN". The people who are the most successful are the ones who do not question the status quo. The lack of vision and direction results in unproductive client relationships, bandaid technology solutions, and chaos instead of process. It's a tough place for an over-achiever or anyone who wants to grow their career.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the client need, and product development. Don't let shiny new ideas distract from the long-term goals.

    generous benefits and great culture; based in Bend, Oregon.

    constantly striving to be the best; not afraid to take risks and make changes-which sometimes causes frustration/stress for employees (have to change to grow)

    Advice to Management

    keep communicating, encouraging and recognizing top performers.

    Pros

    Red Bull Fridge. Office Keg. Office closes early on Wednesdays and Fridays. All the people that work at G5 are really cool, super trendy, and fairly young. CEO is with everybody in the open-air office.

    Cons

    "Work Hard, Play Hard" soon became "Work Hard, Play Occasionally". Managers (not executives) were kind of incompetent. And by kind of, I mean reeeeeally incompetent. I could have made the same salary working at a retail store.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who actually know what they are doing, please.
