  1. Best Job I have ever had!!!!!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Global Shop Solutions

    Pros

    Everybody at this company is the best to work with, from the CEO on down. I love it here and I plan on staying for a long time.

    Cons

    Need an outside patio or closed gazebo to work from to break up the daily grind.

    Advice to Management

    Let developers work remote more, there are more distractions in the office during work hours that take away from focusing on projects.

    Pros

    Casual family owned environment. They have been growing steadily while I've been there, so there has been room for exceptional employees to move up. (Although there have not been a lot of new supervisor/lead positions, they do promote from within.) Financially stable and able to grow even in poor economic conditions

    Cons

    Currently experiencing growing pains, specifically with construction to make room for new employees Currently implementing a lot of infrastructure changes that make keeping their product stable more interesting. However, these changes will allow for significant future growth. Management wants everything done, and done now. They sometimes don't realize how much shifting priorities can affect schedules. However, they wouldn't be very good managers if they didn't want more from their employees than they are currently getting.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck getting to MS SQL Server. It could be an interesting road ahead. With all of the growth it is not surprising that some things have fallen through the cracks, but over all things have gone well so far. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    I would consider Global Shop one of the greatest companies that anyone could ever work for. The environment and people that work there is what makes me excited to go to the office every morning and work my hardest. I have never been around such a professional, encouraging, motivating and loving group of people. Business is always booming and no one should pass up the opportunities that Global Shop has to offer.

    Cons

    The bagels that are brought in every Friday morning are not helping my diet!
