    Company was great..

    Web Developer (PHP) (Former Employee)
    Cottonwood Heights, UT

    ProsFriendly atmosphere, people really know their stuff. The work culture was awesome until a massive project broke it.

    Cons120 hour plus work weeks became the norm and all fun little perks were discontinued, caused a lot of the company to abandon ship.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose sight of your awesome work culture just to frantically make up for lack of resources for a big client.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good potential and a great place to sharpen automation skills.

    Software Engineer In Test (Former Employee)
    Cottonwood Heights, UT

    ProsAs a QA, the focus was on building automation which more companies should follow. There were lots of opportunities to build simulators and automation for binaries, web services, APIs and front end UI. The teams were small and good to work with. Very sharp developers. It was a friendly place to work.

    ConsNo Internet access. The development environment is very secure, which means you build and test in a bubble. There weren't many financial incentives, and no support for training. Problems with a lack of processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better support for training of the staff so they can mature and learn from others in the industry. Restructure your incentive program to be more transparent and achievable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The Top Company Leaders have a twisted view of how to run a company

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsPeople are great to work with.
    A laid-back environment with perks such as video games and ping pong.

    ConsCodebase is old and gnarly; you'll maintain spaghetti code.
    The performance review and raise process is something right out of a Dilbert cartoon. They usually have a pay freeze, but if they don't, raises are strictly 2-3% increases.
    Backwards security practices make the job harder. You won't have the tools you need. For example, Internet access is severely restricted and basically unusable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ton of Potential with Poor Executive Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGalileo has a very strong employee base. Very talented, qualified, dedicated employees.

    ConsExecutive management doesn't empower any level of management. The morale is low due to the strict security policies (internet use is not available or very limited at best), control of information and no communication to the employees. Unfortunately, it is a company of fear and intimidation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower management to do what needs to be done to make Galileo the hugely successful company it has the potential to be. Recognize high performers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I work with great people at Galileo

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe people at Galileo are great to work with. The technology is awesome. The developers are very innovative and creative.

    ConsThe team at Galileo is a very sharp group. They develop leading edge technologies that enable their clients to stay ahead of their competition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe aware of the needs of each employee so that you can retain top talent. Continue to help employees maintain work life balance.
