    I have been working at GS1 US as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at GS1-US has been great. I like that management listens to new ideas and implements them if viable. You'll never want for the right tools as I have always been given the latest and greatest to work with. Just an all around low stress, laid back environment to work in. The senior members of staff are always willing to help and teach when called on.

    Cons

    I would have liked to experience more training. Not that on the job training isn't good. Official training sessions would have been a solid addition to staff development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add training sessions. Add more documentation of internal processes.

    I worked at GS1 US as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a great working environment. Professional but comfortable, I was very lucky to have on of the best supervisor I have ever had when I was with the company.

    Cons

    Not much - it was a temp assignment and I was not hired afterwards but still a great company with great people. I would go back to work there in a heartbeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your temporary staff!

    Pros

    Exceptional company - I was working a long term temp and hope they will call on me again. It really was the best temp assignment I ever had, my supervisor was wonderful. even now I miss the people there and I loved what I was doing. Wish I was still working there!!

    Cons

    Nothing...except I wish they tired more of the temps they brought in but that is a bias opinion!
