    I have been working at GAP Solutions, Inc. (GAPSI) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall good company. They are good for entry level people, especially people right out of college. Company management is extremely distant, but they have their heart in the right place. Pay is generally fair. Benefits are ok, but the sick leave policy that they are required to have is a little bit absurd.

    Cons

    Management is distant
    Contract employees can be made to feel very replaceable in a rude way
    Quality control of other contractors who don't meet client standards- sometimes GAPSI just throws in bodies at the problem

    Advice to Management

    Connect more with your employees.

    Growth outpaced the size of the staff at one point, resulting in loss of contracts that would otherwise have grown the company bottom line.

    Pros

    Company cares about their employees, provides competitive pay, and really cares about their clients. Also provides great health and benefits package.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow and not much professional development. May seem slightly distant for Admin I & II staff.

    Advice to Management

    Initiate various development programs and try to retain great talent that will later help you grow.

    Pros

    Easy work, Not a very strict company

    Cons

    The pay is horrible, they do Health & Wellness which takes from your hourly amount.
    I took the job thinking i was getting paid 22 hrly.

    Turns out almost 4 goes to my healthcare that you have to take unless you have your own, and NO that 4 dollars does not go in your pocket if you refuse healthcare.

    this job is for a retired person maybe. yet again simple job but bad pay for the work.

    Advice to Management

    be more upfront about pay.
    Also offer incentives, we work with military but cant do half the needed task to streamline the job process.

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

    Pros

    I never feel overworked as we are able to work at our own pace and listen to music on headphones while we work. We can take lunch per our phone schedules, and there's a gym in the next building over. My work is just challenging enough and we change roles every 6 mos, which really helps with workplace boredom.

    Cons

    We only acquire 3.33 hours of PTO per paycheck, we don't get our 2 weeks worth of PTO all at once like other companies for which I have worked. Also, we get paid on the 7th and 22nd of each month, which is a huge hassle when there's over 2 weeks between pay checks.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay periods to every other Friday like most other companies and change PTO policies so we don't have to save it up until the end of the year.

    Pros

    High-ish salary
    Will take anyone with a secret clearance
    Diverse community

    Cons

    Can be hard to understand the setup of the company and their partners
    Not a lot of communication
    Changing policies

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your employees and let us have a say in how things are handled. Onboarding process is a mess. Also throw us a "get together" party sometime, nobody knows who is who, and it would help us better connect as a company.
