    I worked at Goodmans full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome culture. Everyone functions as a family and are always willing to help each other out. The moral within the firm is great!

    Cons

    The pay scale is a little bit lower than it should be for IT compared to industry standards. It's hard to learn and excel due to the fact many consultants are hired. Not a lot of in-house processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My supervisor was great! Nothing to change.

    I have been working at Goodmans

    Pros

    Pays/treats assistants well compared to other big firms.
    Management has flexibility and will discuss with employee work load or work-related problems with view to help rather than to punish.
    Provides good training upon hiring and continuous as needed.
    Job security - they did not lay off anyone during recession even though they could've used the savings on overhead costs and suffered like all other big firms.

    Cons

    Bad benefit package compared to other big firms.
    Not much room within company to move up. The nature of the jobs is such that there is not much movement within firm.
    Little overtime opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve benefits package.
    Provide more overtime opportunities.
    Provide some perks, as used to do with fruit days etc.
