    I worked at GCE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The younger work force was very friendly and cooperative. They helped each other out.

    Cons

    Everything else. All the Chiefs didn't know what they were doing. All the employees were overworked and couldn't take a day off. Lower level employees had no freedom to take action. Overall the place was just a big mess.

    Advice to Management

    Too late to give any advice since the company is bankrupt and sued for fraud.

    I worked at GCE (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard working people and lot's of smart folks there. Very intelligent staff members and analysts. Good location and office building.

    Cons

    But bad management and very unorganized. Some there were way too overworked and got no weekends free. Had to spend the night there a few times and they had a cot set up to sleep.

    Advice to Management

    The management and the company has apparently closed due to some activity. So my advice to them would be to probably not do that.

    I worked at GCE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team was a lot of fun to work with, however upper management was disconnected with reality and lacked transparency.

    Cons

    After an unannounced raid by the FBI in the spring of 2013, the company went into a downward spiral, they barely could make payroll, they were in trouble with the GSA and FBI and the CEO was never to be found. All of this was kept from the employees and the majority of the executive team was let go. The company is now bankrupt and no longer in business as of the end of September

    Advice to Management

    Never start another business.


  10. "Not consulting"

    Cons

    They work you until you burn out and it's not real consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Give more responsibilities and better pay to your employees.
