Pros

-exposure to larger scale of projects
-at smaler offices you get to see different aspects of the projects

Cons

-demotion is often practiced here, if you had a higher position at another firm, they will tell you you're not good enough and need to accept a lower position and prove yourself to them
-after the demotion, obvious they won't pay you very much for what you're worth
-in order for them to grow, you will need to stop growing, so they have more money to hire more people
-very corporate
-management is a failure
-filled with lies
-more business oriented
-fast turn around
-at one of the locations, 9 people quit within a month; while at another, no one has worked there for more than a year; something to be said about that.

Advice to Management

Treating people fair is a good start; abusing employees' talent and effort is not the way to run a business, nor a way to be successful.

    I worked at The Gettys Group full-time

    Pros

    The Accounting team at Gettys is a great place for a recent college grad or someone with a couple of years of experience. You will be able to work on a myriad of tasks that you might not have been able to access at a big corporation.

    The team is encouraging, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable.

    Cons

    In the Accounting team, specifically, it felt like there was little room for growth. However, this is understandable considering the current size of the company.

    Our team felt understaffed for the rapid growth of the operation.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of wonderful team members that should be recognized and a bigger effort should be made to retain those employees at Gettys.

    I worked at The Gettys Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's little that can be said here. A couple great employees holding together an otherwise sinking ship.

    Cons

    Profit driven company with no love for design. Management disconnected, and don't care about employees. Limited opportunities. 2 & 3 star hospitality at best.

    Advice to Management

    Start over starting with your Principals, Directors, and Seniors. Put someone in charge that knows design.
