    Good place to work with advancement opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGPA is a very good place to work if you have a strong technical background. I joined GPA after receiving a Masters in EE. What I liked about GPA was the strong technical focus of our engagements, the high intelligence of the staff and the ability to closely interact with clients. Because of the diverse projects it allow constant learning. It is also a place where staff can advance rapidly; after two years I was running a group which provided opportunities to handle a wide range of topics while gaining experience managing a team. This hands-on experience was critical when I applied to Business School.

    ConsFor those lacking motivation or strong skills, GPA can be a challenging place to work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unfortunate period in my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsSome employees were very helpful and a joy to work with but the overall structure made it difficult for efficient communication.

    ConsUpper management did not support its employees and made no effort in improving company morale. There was a lot of scrutiny and absolutely no positive feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop micromanaging and allow your employees to perform the skills they were hired to do. It would have also been nice to receive conducive criticism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dishonest, Disrespectful, Long Hours

    IP Consulting (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsI would say it is located right in the heart of downtown Boston which is nice. We also get weekly massages.

    ConsTerrible and degrading management. The people are very dishonest and have poor communication skills. They disrespect their employees, make them work long hours and on the weekends and take advantage of people just out of college or from different countries

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen and respect your employees. Keep up with the times and grow with new technology. It would have been nice to hear some positive feedback just once.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
