I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than a year)

Pros

GTM has A LOT of potential. They have a good hold on their market and if they do things correctly, will continue to grow and be very successful. They are located in Manhattan, KS which is a great place to live.

Cons

Management. GTM has a habit of hiring managers from within the company, sometimes employees that have worked at GTM for 5+ years or more and haven't had the opportunity to experience management at multiple companies. The result is micro-managing and poor management all around. The executive team has their hands in too many things, making decisions that the others in the company with specific experience should be making. In my time here I have seen a lot of employee turnover.

Advice to Management

Empower your employees more often and consider the onions of ALL employees, including interns and entry level employees. You never know where your next big idea is going to come from.

    Pros

    Friendly Coworkers, Flexibility of Schedule

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales expectations, they play favorites heavily, pay is not great for the amount of work that they expect. I would say the management is the most disappointing- they continuously hire from within so no one has ever really had management experience at a successful company- so they tend to overcompensate by either micromanaging or disappearing for days at a time, and all of the answers are scripted across the board any time you need help from someone who has clearly never had experience in outside sales before.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your outside sales team a little more. Most are disgruntled and looking elsewhere, but back in Kansas you can choose to overlook it and pretend like everyone loves being with GTM when that is sadly not the case.
