    Pros

    OT pay, Insurance paid for by the company, willing to work with you to find a position that you are happy with

    Cons

    No options for Insurance, only one choice which is a high deductible plan. No job security since it is a staffing company.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate more with employees but overall a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Open, honest leadership with strong morals and integrity.

    Cons

    Still a young company, so they could be a little more organized, but they more than make up for that with effort

    Pros

    They have great medical benefits, good paid leaves, company gives money to retirement, moving support, will provide training, growing a lot.

    Cons

    Management is de-centralized, but they are working on that. You have to sign a non-compete agreement.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more often to employees about business strategy and planning.

    Pros

    One-on-one mentorship, Leadership opportunities, Technical and Project Management Skill development

    Cons

    Really cant think of any. If I must say something then yes, embrace new ideas with a little less caution. They might just grow your company exponentially.

    Advice to Management

    You are a Great Employer, with amazing listening skills, you always give honest hardworking folks a fair chance to succeed at work. Every employer should strive to be like you unbiased and positive. Please do ensure that all policies are enforced like NDA, Non Compete, so that Goken gets a fair treatment in return of all the opportunities it provides its employees.All in all Goken rocks! Be the way you are and dont change for anybody!

    Pros

    Management and engineers work well together and there is no silly red tapes. Everything is simple and quick and out of the box thinking is always encouraged and appreciated by them.

    Cons

    Nothing really. Its a smaller company. However, its growing at an incredible pace thanks to their quality of work. They provide their services to some really big companies.

    Advice to Management

    Its good working with you guys.
