    I have been working at Gigats full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for Gigats has given me the opportunity to learn a business that I wouldn't have thought to be interesting at first. Being able to watch a concept from start to finish was neat and then to watch it go live is actually quite astounding. Gigats is innovative and has a bright future ahead. The idea of Gigats is one of a kind and its wonderful knowing that we are helping people daily to better themselves.

    Cons

    The benefits package could be a little more complete such as including a 401k as well as more competitive health insurance rates for families. Communication is lacking quite often especially from upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a chain of command with communication. Make sure that there isn't a breakdown as the information travels to the employees. Communication is key when you are still a smaller company and sometimes all of the pertinent information doesn't get to where it needs to go in a timely fashion.

    Pros

    Seeing a mission come to fruition. "To help people fill their immediate employment needs and achieve their future career goals." It is nice to be a part of a company that is evolving to make every process consistent with their overall mission.

    Cons

    There is a challenging work schedule and high expectations, but is that really a con? Perhaps with those who are apathetic and/or entitled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to increase the transparency.

    Pros

    The best thing about the team behind Gigats is we are never satisfied. We are constantly trying to find out more about our applicants and their needs. We continue to work to develop the type of job matching service not only our team can be proud of, but the user can be proud of.

    Cons

    There probably needs to be ways to improve your resume using the Gigats service which there currently is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growing the site for the employer side.

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

    Pros

    I've learned so much about working with every single personality type by working for Gigats. I've developed my social and professional skills by giving people opportunities to really jump start their professional car

    Cons

    By working with millions of people, I've run into some that really frustrate and challenge me. Sometimes it's hard to overcome this on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I would give to management would be to recognize excellent work from the employees that telecommute.
