    A stable company, but limited growth potential for most

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Marietta, GA

    ProsThe company gives 10% of base compensation to employees at the end of the year for their 401k. This isn't funds matching or performance-based. It's always announced as being based on base salary only, but frequently includes bonuses as well.

    GDS pays its consultants bonuses even if they don't have any equity in the firm. Company provides two years of full salary as a life insurance benefit.

    ConsThe drive to maintain high billable percentages frequently causes employees to use very little of their vacation time.

    Salaries tend to be depressed compared to similar positions at other companies. While bonuses can more than make up for this, they don't always. Bonuses are less tightly correlated to performance and financial health than one would expect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    very quiet, sometimes boring job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Proseveryone here is very nice

    Conscan be tedious and monotonous
