    I worked at GP Strategies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some seasoned middle management actually care.
    PTO accumulated at a decent rate.
    Acknowledgement of individual efforts was nice.

    Cons

    Lower management in my BU used the "warm body" method of hiring new instructors.
    "Merit wage increases" were an average of 2% to 4%. Last time I checked that is barely a cost of living increase.
    If you perform well, plan on staying stuck in the same role since you generate revenue in that role.
    No lateral communication between BUs.

    Advice to Management

    I was with GP for over 13 years. I thought I could grow beyond my current role of Sr. Training Specialist. When I mentioned that I was going to either advance at GP or somewhere else, I was thrown a bone of Group Leader and given a small raise. This only led to animosity with my direct manager as he thought I was trying to take his job of 20 years. I went from being his "golden boy" to being his whipping post.
    When I asked if I could move back to my old BU I was told there is no room for me.
    What happens when you jerk around one of your best instructors, (my old directors words)? You lose him.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GP Strategies in November 2017.

    Interview

    This ended up being one of the best experiences of my life. I applied online and had an initial phone interview for a similar role 3 months ago. I ultimately did not get that role, but kept in contact with someone in HR and when another role came up that was a good match for me she contacted me for that one. I had a phone interview and was extended a job offer which I accepted. Working with someone in HR who not only remembers you, but makes the effort to look for other opportunities that would fit you is a rare thing these days, but GP has the right people in place to make these connections happen. Outstanding!
