I have been working at GP Strategies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

flexible hours, work at home, mostly caring leadership, salary is great, main headquarters location is fantastic and they have offices all over the country

Cons

The constant state of flux in terms of work load is maddening. I can be without work for days and then overloaded for days after that. Being looked at askew when sitting idle, when I'm at the mercy of our program directors to bring in work, is frustrating as well.

Advice to Management

Work with clients to set reasonable expectations on start times and deliverables. Also, stop over hiring - ramping up for a new project is fine, but it's a constant thing for you to over hire on projects because you're scared of not being able to deliver for the client but it leaves people without work!!

    Pros

    Fabulous caring people to work with who are genuinely concerned about their staff and their customers. Have worked with multiple clients across the company and love it!

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours due to peaks in workflow but that can be anticipated anywhere. To get the full picture of GP you need to see past your local office and look at the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing the good we do with all employees!
