    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Great people, very little management overhead and oversight. Most of the people are self-starters who don't need to be told what to do.

    Cons

    Acquisition by a major defense contractor is slowly but surely eroding the high-end, boutique nature of the company. When bidding on new work, it now is a "race to the bottom" with respect to rates

    Advice to Management

    Go after business that speaks to your historical strength, not business that requires you to bid skilled people at higher rates, and then roll them off in a few months and replace them with cheaper people in order to hit the proposed budget.

    I worked at GCI full-time

    Pros

    Financial Resources, benefits, product mix, investment in new technology, wireless and media business strategy

    Cons

    Business Silos, mid/upper management in some sectors lack vision and leadership for rapidly changing markets

    Advice to Management

    Improve interdepartmental collaboration and encourage outside of the box thinking in departments with long tenured management especially if underperforming or replace team.

    Pros

    The atmosphere was fun and coworkers were really professional. The supervisors were smart and would work with me if I needed to change my schedule, when they could.

    Cons

    There's a lot of things we had to remember, which want bad, it just took a lot of time and effort to remember it. And it was always changing.

    Advice to Management

    Most of your junior leaders are doing a really great job, which means your junior leader training programs are working.

    Pros

    They empower their employees and do a good job to start first to promote from within the companies. They keep up with current technology and have a great training department inside the company. Great culture of caring for the employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is very, very fast-paced, sometimes requiring more overtime than you might want.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to move too fast sometimes.

    I worked at GCI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back and fun, Most non-entry level staff proficient and helpful, Very family like and friendly teams, Flexible schedules and workloads, Great Training and learning opportunities

    Cons

    Fast pace on unneeded changes, Slow on raises and promotions, Not very politically correct in some teams, At times a tad to political and a tad too frugal for internal spending

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some retitling and position reclassification, but otherwise most problems come from higher up. Team supervisors and department managers tend to run things very well.
