    I have been working at GSEC

    Pros

    The training and reputation alone provide employees with ample compensation for entry level positions. Senior employees also have excellent opportunities and superior salaries.

    Cons

    Expect long hours from the start and stressful on the job training with high performance demanded from the outset. Salaries generally start at market norms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build out and further emphasize the opportunies for projects and bolstering profits for the company. Most employees want to contribute to the company's success and protect their jobs but lack the access and information to make meaningful contributions beyond the narrow scope of their daily tasks.

    I worked at GSEC

    Pros

    Salaries are good and the benefits are out of control.

    Cons

    There's a price you pay for those benefits and the salary. You're expected to work 12 hrs or more everyday. No time for homelife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people want to spend more time at home. You make comments about bankers hours when anyone wants to go home after a 10 hr day, Stop making it hard for people to leave and feeling uncomfortable for leaving.
