    Pros

    My job is like others, demanding, challenging and never the same thing from day to day. I manage the technical proposals and estimating efforts of our proposals to customers. Supporting the BDM team is a great place to see all the different projects we perform. The team is here to help each other and I lead off my day with how can I help my team. My leadership team is a good team. They have focus and share this focus with everyone. My work is pretty independent but my boss knows what I am doing from the results of supporting the BDM team. He knows that I have it under control from the feedback of the BDM team. In my three years, I have enjoyed my job tremendously. It is the team, the diversity of the projects we propose and execute, managing the dollars of the proposal and reporting the margins and performance characteristics of the project estimation.

    I would highly recommend Glenmount Global Solutions as an employer. Being in a smaller organization, you are not a number or asset. You will increase your skill set due to the wide variety of work we perform. At times, you must do what it takes to get the job done. This is what sets us apart from the average. Good Skills, Accountability, Reliability and Integrity makes this team stand tall in our business space.

    Cons

    I can't think of any con's that relate to my level of effort or responsibilities. Since we are a regionally clustered and national supporting company, communication can have a delay at times. Yet, we make it happen!

    Advice to Management

    Keep staying on focus.. Support the team.. Never forget to ask what can you do to help others. During a recent meeting we discussed Spot Awards to GGS Members that are working in the field at a clients location that through their relationship with the customer bring forth a new project opportunity. We need to provide this recognition to our associates helping GGS grow.

    Pros

    Glenmount was a good opportunity for me - I worked hard and succeeded while there. I had flexibility, and was paid fairly. I was able to travel somewhat to pursue project opportunities. I generally had the administrative support I needed.

    Cons

    There were sometimes issues having enough technical resources to complete the work sold. I can't speak too much to the current environment as I believe much has changed since I was there.

    Pros

    The individual companies that were merged together to form GGS were excellent companies. Telecommuting flexibility.

    Cons

    The individual companies should have not given in to the temptation of expanding beyond its means. Carousel of new management has continued to display incompetence and muddled vision and ultimately forced many talented associates to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get your vision aligned. Stop thinking behind closed and begin listening to the people that wants to help restore the company to health.

    Pros

    The only pros existed before Glenmount Global Solutions purchased Crown ESA. Crown was an awesome company to work for. Glenmount was a total 180 from the old Crown. Employees didn't count anymore. Crown was a big family. Glenmount made it disfunctional.

    Cons

    Two cons: AN engineering manager with an MBA that only worries about his image to the corporation AND a COO with bllinders on who should have got rid of the character many months ago. Many old Crown customers have very little good to say about Glenmount.

    Advice to Management

    Take off the blinders and pay attention to people who try their best to do a good job. Pay attention to customers. New and old.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits: 2 weeks vacation (plus floating holidays), bonus pay, being able to work from home.

    Cons

    No job security, all victims of layoffs were hired the year before

    Advice to Management

    Lay yourselves off instead of subjecting others to something you're not willing to do yourselves!

    Pros

    Lots of very good engineers - some very capable, smart people here

    Cons

    Used to be based on integrity and doing the right thing, speaking straight - not any more. No security, no feeling of belonging to a greater organization. A culture of demands and intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to a core business, and stop trying to be all things. Too many managers, VPs, directors, not enough people to actually do the work. If you don't get back to a standardized, communicated procedural model, the company will ultimately fail. Stop understaffing projects.
