    "Nice place to work"

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Carlos, CA

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and works as a team to get the job done. Management is flexible in balancing home/work life.

    Cons

    When working on any type of event, it can get crazy at times. Weeks leading up to the event are very stressful and you are expected to work 24/7 to get the job done and make the client happy. However, this is the nature of the business. Some employees put into leadership positions really do not know how to manage people and can make the work environment a little negative with their attitude. You are expected to bend over and do anything for the client, even if it may not be in the best interest for GPJ and might affect the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Management should look a little closer at who they are putting in leadership roles and whether or not they truly can manage a team and motivate employees. This can really make or break an event. A negative, condescending person in a management position fosters negative attitudes.
