    I worked at GCS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    GCS - Geocontrol Systems Inc. is a small business. Their goals are set gain government contracts. The jobs are high in technology of monitoring, testing, communication, diagnosing technical issues, and administrative services.

    Cons

    Contracts are limited for projects. Company needs to bid more on jobs to help promote their staff who really desire work.

    Advice to Management

    Since this a family owned business, I wish all members of the family would be on the same page.

    I worked at GCS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for GCS, I guess depending on the contract, will afford you a pretty decent rate of pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    On the flip side of that, GCS doesn't do much to advocate for their employees on various job sites. You are being contracted in for a reason. Many times the full-time permanent employees at a particular site are incompetent, and you are there to make up for that incompetence.

    Pros

    Paid government holidays. They're a subcontractor, so everyone thinks you work for a big company (primary contractor), but you don't.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Low tuition reimbursement (3500/yr). They're a subcontractor, so everyone thinks you work for a big company, but you don't.

    Only way to get a raise is to change jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Give people raises as incentives to keep doing their job well.

    Otherwise, people are always on a learning curve, and not performing as well as they could.
