    Former Employee - Anon in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at GlobalSCAPE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The HR Team goes above and beyond to make the employees happy. Lots of health benefits, snacks, drinks, parties. Plenty of training and activities.

    Cons

    Different factions make completing projects difficult. There is no main source of power, it's a lot like govt operations. Everything is a power-grab. Perhaps it has changed since I moved on, however the paperwork to complete a project takes longer than the actual project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Centralize the power structure, don't elevate people who are incapable of listening to the ideas of others to positions of power.

    I have been working at GlobalSCAPE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Healthcare, Dental and Vision benefits are great!

    Cons

    Management wears two cheeks and speaks with both; lots of politics, everyone beats to their own drum, no formal training, hard to advance and very negative management because they are to faced and don't stand behind their words. New CEO James Bindseil is the worse with double talking (great example for his lesser staff to follow)!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with one side of your cheek, not double talk, own integrity and take accountability for your self by being honest!

    Current Employee - Technical Writer in San Antonio, TX

    I have been working at GlobalSCAPE as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The workplace has candy, soft drinks, and foods at every turn. Chocolate is especially prevalent.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth and upward mobility. Very stiff-necked atmosphere with little to no encouragement for advancement. Many promises made, none kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to growth for employees. Offer training opportunities and better pay. Widen the sphere of employee recognition. All the same employees keep being rewarded.

    I worked at GlobalSCAPE

    Pros

    Nice small company that is successful inspite of itself. Nice family feel and lots of opportunities to do different things.

    Cons

    The pay is below average and those employees who care end up doing most of the work.

    Owners do not know the industry. The present themselves as caring Christian businessmen, but are no better than any other greedy person out there.

    Nepotism is rampant. And interestingly enough, those that are related to each other will stab each other in the back at the drop of hat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people who know what they are doing do their jobs. And keep you faith to yourself, you are not a good examples of living Christian values.

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding with excellent holiday schedules and medical coverage.

    Due to its size, it's not uncommon that we have to work long hours, but this is typical for any small company that's growing.
