    I worked at Gearworks

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Gearworks is working with the latest and great technology. Also the ability to travel was amazing. The compensation was really fair as well I also enjoyed the many people that worked with me along the way.

    Cons

    Micro managment - constant pressure - the "board" controls the CEO - they buy rolexes for all of their employees then do a lay off due to "economic times". That is some what like a mechanic filling his garage with tools, then shutting the doors for good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your head, make proper decisions, instead of making reductions how about cutting salaries or freezing raises?

    Awful place to work as anything but a manager. If you are a manager, you will get paid to do relatively little.

    I worked at Gearworks

    Pros

    They are always hiring. Because people are always quitting.

    Cons

    Incompetent ivory tower management ignores the suggestions of anyone but the manager of the month, many jobs have 4 or 5 bosses. The amount of people coming and going makes it so that no permanence exits. Unintelligent managers sit and do nothing in some positions while overworked underlings get all the real work done. Hardly anyone is happy with their job, they are happy to just have jobs.

    The CEO is a joke. Most of the management spends their time racking up gigantic company card bills "finding business" and they allow the shallow and often crass salespeople freedom to do whatever it takes to sell, including stretch the truth and charge away the company's future on their company mastercards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with how to retain employees. Your time off policies suck and you have up to 50 people leaving the company in really short time periods. You barely understand any of your employees and are completely out of touch with their desires or needs.
