    Pros

    GTA is not a State Agency and drives to a higher level technically and professionally. There is always a drive to find the best solutions for State Government needs. The work is on a large scale, often for thousands of users or business rules or number of servers....which keeps it interesting and challenging professionally.

    Cons

    As with most organizations GTA is siloed - sometimes on purpose and sometimes due to lack of communication. Top down communication comes and goes but usually does have vision and direction. Even though GTA is not a true State Agency they sit close enough to be driven by whims of the government and allow non-workers to sit for years on end.

    Pros

    Decent pay for state government and somewhat stable if that is what you are looking for.

    Cons

    Outrageous workloads, only certain individuals are held accountable, and a very racially hostile work environment.

    Pros

    It is a convenient location in downtown Atlanta and you have decent working hours. The salary is ok but could be better.

    Cons

    This is a company that prides itself on running a good ole boy network. A lot of the staff have been employed with the State of GA for a number of years and are just looking to retire. Don't expect the "lifers" as they like to call themselves to offer much assistance in the form of sharing their knowledge. Many of the co-workers are not very friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Try to spend more time listening to your employees instead of trying to make yourself shine!

    Competive pay relative to private sector Good environment Cares about employees

    Cons

    NO opportunity for growth or advancement Many organizations within this company under perform but are paid well Only come here if you are ready to retire in the same position

    create tiered opportunies to advance career like you do with the PM and technical organization.
