I have been working at Geary LSF full-time

Pros

Relatively flat organization, with lots of exposure to upper management. Ability to take on responsibility quickly. Young organization with a very fun culture. Great training programs, with ability to learn about areas outside of your job description.

Diverse client list, so you are always learning something new - no two days are the same.

Cons

Undergone a series of aquisitions and still are working to unify the different business units.

Advice to Management

Continue to implement feedback and offer training opportunities.

    Pros

    Downtown San Francisco Location.

    Next to Transamerica Pyramid, close to major bus lines as well as BART.

    Very young average age if you are looking for work right out of college.

    Cons

    Young, inexperienced management.

    Rapidly depleting client list.

    Lack of resources (human capital and thought leadership). Over-worked and under compensated employees.

    No typical employee benefits for an SF "tech" company.

    Expedited upward mobility with little training, experience or knowledge transfer leading to poor Sales and Client Service execution.

    Little to no transparency within the company.

    Multiple company acquisitions have completely diluted any sense of "culture."

    Advice to Management

    Why has employee turnover been so high for well over 18 months?

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Geary LSF full-time

    Pros

    They have free coffee and candy, the location is not awful but not the best- I can't think of much more than this.

    Cons

    All the management talks about is the bottom line, from the CEO and down. Managers do not motivate employees, their motivation speak is "we need to do better", but they don't provide resources to help with this. People are leaving left and right and they don't want to replace them. The expectation is work harder and work longer. Work life balance is a dirty word around here.
    There is a weekly rally for motivation, but the rally is an elementary school show and tell, they talk about all the new business pitches they go on, but interesting enough, they never win new clients. I wonder why, maybe clients are smart enough to see the chaos and lack of resources in this place.
    A recent recognition project they worked on seems to be just that, a special project to get employees to vote the company in as the "best place to work".
    This is not a place to build a career for anyone. If you think you are leaving a bad place, this is worse. Long timers here will tell you this place was much better, but it is not the same place.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management and focus on the internal disfunction.
