Pros

GP offers amazing opportunities to work with companies in every industry. You're constantly stretched to learn new things and develop your skill set. There's always something new coming along... Likely the strongest talent pool in the nation for the training industry.

Cons

Structure of accounts doesn't give much time for professional development and GP doesn't offer a lot of training opportunities - "just swim." Fast paced environment isn't a fit for everyone. Tends to be just behind the curve rather than leading the industry.

Advice to Management

Increase your margin to allow for employees to receive and give more professional development to peers/direct reports. Provide internal infrastructure to support the accounts/projects won.

    Pros

    Company has a decent compensation package including medical, dental, vision, retirement, and other perks. Salaries are average for their industries as a typical rules. Some locations are reasonably flexible with time off.

    Cons

    Anyone considering employment should take a hard look at which branch they will be working at as things vary widely from site to site, and how well your site is run is going to be very dependent on the manager. As such the application of company policies towards employees has the tendency to be very subjective. The company is a contracting company, and does not always have the best transparency concerning the contracts - witnessed many layoffs (including entire offices) blind-siding employees who were told that their contracts were being renewed. There is not a lot of room for growth within most contracts unless you are willing to jump within the company to other sites, most management gain their positions, and dig in.
