    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI)

    Pros

    Free coffee and donut cart on occasion. Clean bathrooms. Potpourri essence in the halls. And one holiday party a year.

    Cons

    Senior management team are unprofessional. They don't provide enough resources to support staff. And no clear goals or direction for the company. Worst company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    Onboarding process was a smooth process. Company's use of automation is outstanding. Generous leave program for longevity with company. Tiered employee recognition program. Great participation in community events.

    Limitied promotion opportunities due to contract requirements, but leadership is open to applying to positions at other locations for which you are qualified for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is helpful, approachable and has shown genuine concern for employees working at remote locations.

    Former Employee - Senior Research Analyst in Washington, DC

    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Above average starting salary for my position, annual increases (even when Federal staff were not seeing them), very nice 401k match, lots of paid time off, flexibility with work schedule, responsive corporate support staff, great senior management team, and a particularly great customer environment. I was recruited fresh out of college by one of the owners, and was promoted 3 times in my first 4 years there. I would very likely still be working for them in support of the same customer if government funding for the program had continued.

    Cons

    Worked on a T&M contract type so government would not pay us for snow days or other closures. However, GAP Solutions management was great about letting me work longer hours during the work week to minimize impact from closures. This allowed me to keep some of my PTO for actual vacation days or to take paid time off following the birth of my children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you were doing. We saw at least one corporate representative each month, and when we had questions, the corporate staff from payroll, HR and Client Services did an excellent job working through our questions and concerns. The company newsletter, GAPSI Gazette, was a really nice tool to let us know what was going on around the company and at other job sites.

    Pros

    no holidays or weekend work

    Cons

    complete lack of communication, will hire outside of the company when there are multiple competent people working for them that could do the job they out source for making almost double the money. you get health and welfare benefits but they are put into a 401k for you, which was just altered recently, before 2014 you received them in your check with your regular pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI)

    Pros

    Client site is pretty great--get to work with smart, funny, and motivated folks. Many challenges in this position, learned a lot about the politics of being a government contractor.

    Cons

    Company changed many employee benefits without asking for input. Does not pay contractors for days missed due to forced government closures (even though the contract has already been paid for in full by government), no room to grow in position.

  10. Not worth the pay

    Pros

    A number of contracts provide security. Company has the ability to grow but it is questionable whether this can take place.

    Cons

    New management is money and power hungry. You cannot survive without providing the proper infrastructure. New management appears to be no better than the old owners, and perhaps worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide proper technology, materials, needs, etc. in order to survive.
