    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice support staff, fun company events

    Cons

    No severance, no transition services, no attempt to move you to a different contract. They just lay off people as soon as they can. They are all hugs and kisses with the dollars are rolling in. But then when faced with a challenging situation, the veneer quickly rubs off to show their true colors.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your best investment. Work hard to reassign them to other programs, instead of sending WARN notices, and laying off people with 2 days' notices. Shame on you for being so callous. I would never recommend this company.

    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GAPSI offers flexible hours, competitive pay and benefits, and good work life balance. The company is willing to invest in employee development and offers excellent opportunities for professional growth.

    One of the things that really impressed me during my time with GAPSI was the supportive culture. Management did an excellent job of letting employees know that their hard work was appreciated. Employees were often recognized for a job well done.Senior staff really seemed to care that employees were happy and motivated.

    The people that I had an opportunity to work with were experienced, hard-working and great team members.

    Cons

    As with many government contracting firms, some on-site positions are largely dependent upon the status of a single contract. If a re-compete is unsuccessful, there may not be immediate opportunities available for affected employees. Re-competes for government contracts are often unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work,and continue to hire and develop talented people.

    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gap Solutions is an excellent company to work for. They care about their employees and were in constant contact with them. If you had questions or concerns, there response to getting back to you was within 24 hours if not before. Their benefits are excellent, they are very involved in the community, they have functions outside of the work environment for staff to get together.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that my contract was awarded to another company and so I am no longer with Gap Solutions, Inc.

    I worked at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GAP Solutions is the best company I have worked with during my work history, as a Contractor on-site you very seldom feel like you are part of a team or a company. They continuously made us feel our work and employment with them was very important. We had the CEO to the Program Manager available to us at any time for questions and concerns, no question too small. They are a very professional forward thinking company that has a clear understanding of helping customers achieve their missions with people, process, and solutions. They hire the best of the best and from a Contractor point of view they pay salaries comparable to our skills and expertise, which is very important to us. I was sorry the contract was over and look to working with them again, in the near future.

    Cons

    The price of working on government contracts is the bidding process. Due to the nature of the selection process the down side is that we could not continue to work the GAPSI.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and continue to grow.

    Decent hours, decent benefits, project managers are generally responsive, reasonable flexibility with hours, good place to work if you are looking for something temporary.

    Like any contract company, employees are expendable. At the whim of the client, not the employee. Lack of genuine care for the employees' general welfare. Atmosphere of politics among peers.

    Pros

    Relaxed word atmosphere. Fairly good communication with HR and contractor contact.

    Cons

    This is basically working in a government job without any of the government benefits. No snow days, no transportation subsidy, etc. Lack of opportunity for promotion, development of skill set. Lots of turnover among program assistants. Pay is not great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us more and give us better benefits and you will see your employees stick around for longer than 6 months.
