    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

    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.
