    Gigats is the best company I have worked for. The closeness between employees here makes it feel like my home away from home. We promote from within so there is unlimited opportunity!!! Plus, we get free food all day everyday. :)

    I'd like more cinnamon toast crunch!

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

    Pros

    1) Food, food, food! Themed cookouts EVERY Friday. Free breakfast and soda machines around every corner.

    2) Benefits/perks. Free gym memberships to the amazing complex across the street. Great compensation and healthcare benefits.

    3) For the size of the organization it has remained extremely innovative, nimble, and fast-paced and open with communication.

    4) My favorite part is that Gigat's promotes from within. Every person on our management team has worked their way up to the top.

    5) I get to work with some of the brightest, most innovative and hard-working/diligent minds in the industry.

    Pros

    An extremely rewarding position that allows me to help others. They appreciate their employees and have BBQ's every Friday, flag foot, surprise happy hours and so much more. I couldn't image working anywhere else. I finally found a place that offers the WORK-LIFE BALANCE that I needed.

    Cons

    They have all my favorite cereals which makes my oatmeal breakfast not so appealing.

    Pros

    The culture is unlike anything I've been a part of anyplace else I've worked. We're truly a family here - between flag football leagues, charity outreach events, and Friday company cookouts, there's never a dull moment at Gigats. Personally, the growth I've achieved and the things I've learned about the industry and about business in general here are more valuable than I can describe.

    Cons

    Sometimes we run out of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in the break room and that really grinds my gears.

    Pros

    Working for Gigats over the past 7 months has been very exciting. I have had the opportunity to learn 4 different aspects of the business from an Employment Specialist to Business Development. Being able to work alongside the CEO has given me exposure to business I hadn't been exposed to at other companies...which I find invaluable.

    Cons

    Being in higher positions require long hours, however if you're willing to put the effort in you control your destiny here. Constantly staying motivated and driven will open up doors for you.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They truly understand the work life relationship. I work with the best and smartest people I have ever worked with. The managers are great and really care about your career growth. Themed cook outs each week. Free cereal and a tech game room.

    Cons

    None so far, maybe more variety with the cereal
