    I have been working at Galaxy Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    GalaxE Systems is a great company to work for. I love the environment and I love coming to work here every day. The delivery team I work for is growing and the company has changed so much for the better in the last eight months. I can't wait to see what the future holds here.

    Cons

    I do work longer hours, but they pay is fantastic. It can be stressful, but I really enjoy what I do.

    Pros

    Good exposure to different clients and fields

    Cons

    This company have absolutely no HR
    Even though there's a HR department in the company, decisions are made by senior management.
    Management only cares about filling their pockets

    I have been working at Galaxy Systems full-time

    Pros

    Having been in the IT “sourcing” industry for more years than I care to count, this is the 1st company that I’ve ever worked for that allows me to use my talents and skillset for the betterment of the company.
    With all companies there are growing pains, and GalaxE.Solutions is no exception, HOWEVER, they are moving forward, having a positive impact on the future of Detroit and the people who work for GalaxE.Solutions can take pride in the job they do!

    Cons

    Sometimes the necessary changes take a little longer to implement than what would be “optimum” but they do happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the employees, and include them in the direction of the company.

    Not a very happy organization to be in

    I have been working at Galaxy Systems

    Pros

    - There a few interesting projects. Under a smaller firm you can do more variety of work.
    - They will overpay to get people on board (but as you'll read later, no many people stay because this company has many shortcomings)

    Cons

    - A lot of times, employees are doing work with their hands tied behind their back. Cannot even install software tools on laptop without going to IT.
    - No communication from upper management, no feedback, do not know the stratigic vision of the company
    - Poor logistics, long time to receive expenses, a lot of proceses are still manual, quite frustrating
    - Poor respect for employees. No expectation management at all, often times people will be "thrown under the bus". No accountability from top to bottom and within teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Create a strategic vision based on integrity, quality, and teamwork. I think this company need much stronger leadership than what we have currently.

    The most dysfunctional organization in every possible category.

    I worked at Galaxy Systems

    Pros

    I've had the privilege to work with extremely talented people. Unfortunately, they don't stick around long after it's realized what an atrocious, dysfunctional company this is. Most find a better opportunity within 3 months.

    Cons

    I can't accentuate enough the appalling treatment of employees. There is a huge disrespect for employees. Major lack of management ability, lack of professionalism and lack of communication with employees are very prominent.

    To put it bluntly, there is a revolving door here and no talented employees remain for any length of time. To get unemployed talented people to come on board, they have been known to lie to them in their offer letter. Then when they come on board, it is discovered that they are not hired for the job they are lead to believe they are accepting. This is a common practice.

    Benefits are tremendously lacking. What few benefits they do have are EXTREMELY costly to employees due to the lack of contribution on behalf of the company. There is very little PTO and vacation time available to any employees. There are very stringent rules against using any vacation and PTO/sick time and it is looked down upon if you do want to use it. There is no work at home option for any employees except a for a few privileged managers. This company is extremely "cheap" and employees are not given the tools to do their jobs in an adequate manner. hey are extremely 'secretive' about the organization and it's business processes and practices or lack thereof. The internal business practices with employees they DO have are extremely unethical and alarming, to put it mildly. It will be only a matter of time before their clients learn the internal aspects mentioned here and look elsewhere for a business partner.

    It is unlike anything I've ever seen or experienced in my 25+ years of business. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain smart, talented employees, change every aspect of the way you treat your employees. Involve them in decision making. Contribute more to the few benefits you offer to employees. Improve upon the lack of work-life benefits to employees. If you continue to treat employees in the current manner, you will lose good, talented employees and over time you'll be left with the bottom of the barrel, if you remain in business at all.

    Worst job I ever had!

    I worked at Galaxy Systems

    Pros

    Had the plesure to work with some smart people who quickly left the company for better opportunities. A good place to work while you look for another job.

    Cons

    Upper management lacking in any ability to efficiently direct their teams. There is a considerable amount of arguing and unprofessional language used at all levels of the organization. Employees are never made aware of the corporate/department vision - everything is a big secret. Horrible benefits, vacation and PTO time. Make sure you get all pre-employment agreements in writing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly. Stop taking advantage of people in desperate for jobs. Once the economy comes back you will have no employees left to work at your company. All the good employeees would have left for good jobs at good companies.

    I have been working at Galaxy Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Within the last 11 months of me being here I have watched the company almost double.
    I have been to Tigers Games and sat with CEO's and VP's.
    Top management speaks to you and learns your names.
    There is extreme growth potential.
    People are friendly and we play the Wii at work!
    The company is extremely diverse in all age groups and races.

    Cons

    There was an issue with the benefits being high when I joined, since then the benefits have been extremely reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the open door policy, it has made working here very enjoyable!
