    Pros

    1. Opportunities for advancement
    2. Managers work equally with the team and they are not just task assigners
    3. New ideas are appreciated
    4. Very dynamic and fast paced environment

    In big companies BA remains BA forever but in GCE you can grow exponentially. You will get a chance to explore the latest technologies. Senior Management has a lot of technically savvy people who will guide you and yet allow you to work independently.

    Innovation or automation are not just appreciated but also rewarded in $$$$.

    Has competitive benefits including- PTO, 401k and Medical

    Cons

    1. It is a mid size company with less formal hierarchy
    2. Things happen too fast, you have to update yourself.

    Advice to Management

    1. Keep up the good work, waiting for GCE to go public.
    2. A personalized souvenir for employee who has worked in the company for 5 plus years.

    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.
