    I have been working at Group Management Services as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We have been with GMS for close to ten years. It is like having another employee who keeps up to date with the ever changing tax laws. We have a great employee handbook, payroll reports filed on time, and if we have a problem our Account Manager is right there to help, all thanks to Group Management Services!

    Cons

    We have not had a time when I thought of leaving! There are no "Cons" Pretty straight forward !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be assured your payroll is completed correctly, your reports filed on time, and you are notified of changes you need GMS for your company. If you need an employee handbook, drug awareness training or safety training you will be very happy with the results you will get with Group Management Services!

    I have been working at Group Management Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    In other jobs I wasn't motivated to get up everyday and go to work. Yes compensation previously was nice but there was no substance. GMS provides a positive environment conducive to wanting to go to work to succeed and enjoy the company of great coworkers. Plus the money is fantastic.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. Shoot, you get a company car. How could that be bad?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the development of educating employees.

    Thank you for the review. I am truly sorry this employee isn’t enjoying their time at GMS. I would agree that our Sales Manual needed some updating. We will be releasing the updated version during ... More

    Professionally challenged in an upbeat and collaborative environment

    I have been working at Group Management Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    We work hard to bring quality customer service to our clients yet we are also fortunate to have a flex schedule and the opportunity to work from home. After starting with GMS my work/life balance changed tremendously, for the good! We work hard and play hard. We enjoy being around our team members on a professional and personal level! We challenge each other, and constantly look for new ideas and best practices to bring better results to both our clients and our internal practices. Over the past year our company has grown tremendously and our staff is excited about the direction we are headed.

    Cons

    Occasionally I have to work past 5:00pm.

    Pros

    GMS has fantastic people, a great company environment, and the best services to offer in the industry. It is an energetic company with a lot of room for growth. GMS is getting ready to explode!

    Cons

    Not enough people know about GMS. More people shoud know who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although it has improved, there is sometimes lack of communication between departments that holds GMS back from peforming at an even higher level.

    I have been working at Group Management Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open, friendly corporate culture
    Co-workers
    Very good benefits package
    Employee Perks (company car, sales contests, etc.)
    Opportunity to meet and work with a wide array of people across many different fields
    Compensation
    Loyalty
    Willingness to try new things, acceptance when something's not working.
    Adaptability

    Cons

    Some things that are out of my control, yet can impact my income.
    Personally speaking, some of the leadership is difficult for me to follow
    Some poor hires in the past have made prospecting and selling more challenging than it needs to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A cookie-cutter approach to managing different employees doesn't work. Knowing people well enough to understand their motivation goes far. That said, manage in your own way and don't try to be who you are not. Lead by example.

    Pros

    Growing company that provides great services to our customers. Company offers great compensation, room for growth and work life balance. Company cars are an example of a benifit that was added to attract and retain quality employees.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All in all, this is a great company with great leadership that really cares about the employees. Mike has a great vision for the company. GMS will be a growing company for years and years

    Pros

    Management truly wants GMS to be a great place to work, and it is. They offer amazing benefits, flexible scheduling and encourage a work-life balance. My job is satisfying on both a personal and professional level.

    Cons

    Each department has to work together in order to properly service the client, which presents challenges as the company grows so rapidly. Despite this, I find that my coworkers are client focused and always willing to help. With this kind of camaraderie I have no doubt that the company will continue to be successful.
