    Comfortable, Stable, and Antiquated

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salem, NH

    ProsIt is a very comfortable and relaxed environment with a friendly atmosphere. The market is slow, diverse, and unsophisticated, thus layoffs have been extremely uncommon in this company's 40+ year history. Turnover is also extremely low and job security is very high. In fact, its *almost* impossible to get fired here. Management treats employees very well and are very approachable. Most exempt employees are given discretion in how they contribute good ideas are encouraged. There are even a few young, talented, and ambitious employees who are going to make a difference in the organization.

    ConsUpper management is operationally focused as they forever wait for organizational consensus on key decisions. Some of the managers and opinion leaders are quite disruptive when they are not in control. We are at the mercy of the market... there is no organizational focus or plan to create growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some risk for good ideas. Bypass people, even if difficult, who extort the organization because they control key paths. Stop asking for consensus from people who lack the perspective and competence.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    GSSI is a great group of people to work with. Its like a good family with all its function and some dysfunction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGSSI is a good place to work with a lot of really great people to associate with. In most departments there is a lot of room to grow and take on challenges for which you will be rewarded. Pay is typically fair. They have a strong product portfolio and always some exciting things in the works.

    ConsThere are two groups of people at the company. One group sees huge potential opportunities by directing the focus of the company to remain competitive and by increasing efficiency. The president is in this group which is good. The other group feels that the way things have been done for the past several decades is the way to keep going. This can often be a point of contention between a couple entrenched managers and those who they manage. So its probably not all that different than a lot of companies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
