    I worked at Robbins-Gioia as a contractor

    Pros

    Lower level folks are great, passionate and helpful from HR to onsite junior contract personnel.

    Cons

    Senior management is distant and reserved. They will bargain and push for the lowest possible salary and expect you to use personal items (cell, transportation, printing) to fund their revenue targets. They seem to be unable to win decent contracts so the turnover is high and lay-offs frequent. An annual benefit, promised 401K distribution in 2013, was not paid.

    I worked at Robbins-Gioia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for. After a few times being bought and sold, new leadership doesn't have a clue.

    Cons

    The new leadership will tell you "everything is looking great" and then cut your salary to stay afloat. The company is trying to stay in the game by reducing salaries, going to smaller office space and teleworking. There is no company culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close up shop and start a new company with a new name.....they have destroyed the former name horribly.

    I worked at Robbins-Gioia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    -Completely inept management
    -Mediocre (at best) staff
    -Zero loyalty
    -Company is consistently losing money and will do whatever they can to keep afloat, regardless of what that means doing to their employees
    -Gossipy, negative culture (what kind of company keeps a senior manager that had to go through an anger management course as a condition of her continued e- wmployment( which did no good, by the way, and who up until a year ago was still a senior manager at this company, handling a large commercial account?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just close up shop now - and give your remaining employees a respectable package. Don't keep stringing these people along for your own ego.

    Pros

    Hard working co worker trying to save the Titantic.

    Cons

    Inept and arrogant legacy management who can't recall a contract win. Desperate for any revenue. No vision. just hanging on desperately to a few remaining contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field people. Get rid of the legacy dead weight management.

    Pros

    I got a paycheck and benefits, but you can get those flipping burgers too! Not much other than that to say positive.

    Cons

    Leadership and the legacy personnel felt their ideas were the only way to go. Slow or no paid contractors. Big head Bar star syndrome with Sr. executives especially the CTO and CEO not far behind and mid level Directors in positions they shouldn't be in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking the large margins built into your green sheet pricing tool and pay the bills and people who worked for the business. Also do not accept a paycheck. That might go a long ways.
    Oh and we can tell the planted reviews. Someone mentioned Informa acting like they owned an ATM. Well Informa must have shown the current owners a PIN number for the ATM and their bonuses. This isn't a secret...
