    Pros

    It is very obvious that they appreciate aquiring Summit Consulting. LLC and seem to be very open to us keeping our current structure and brand; which is a definite plus.
    The Review process and pay-4-performance seems improved from our previous parent co. and the time off is about average. Overall we've been with them less than a year so opinions are still forming.

    Cons

    The High-deductible insurance is a bit much and has it's own set of challenges and the UltriPro time management system could use an upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Try to delve into the current management structure and make some must have changes as there is a definite disconnect throughout and within departments. Which in turn creates a disconnect in procedural processes.

    Pros

    GAI has a friendly working environment, offers flexible hours affording a good work/life balance, and is right in the middle of Downtown Cincinnati!

    Cons

    The work is highly dependent on the specific needs, so hard to pin down one uniform experience.

  6. Fun experience, plenty of opportunities to move up.

    Pros

    GAIG has a variety of specialized business units. Each business unit has the autonomy to make their own decisions with support of the parent company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, with the specialization of each business unit, there can be inconsistencies within the organizations and company objectives can be interpreted in a number of different ways.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see some of the business units 'catch up' to similar organizations. It is time to replace desktop computers with laptops, allow flexible work schedules, and offer refresher courses to managers about how to work with millennials.

    Pros

    The people are great for starts. The pay is conpetitive with the market and the benefits are great. Nothing but a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Expected to come in right away and work on projects that probably could've been finished more efficiently with training.

    Pros

    Very good work environment. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Good salary and good exposure to new technologies.

    Cons

    No real complaints. I know other Interns in the company have complained about not having enough work to do, but that hasn't been an issue for me.
