    I have been working at GDR Group full-time

    Pros

    - Most teams have strong members - Most employees are friendly and knowledgable

    Cons

    - Some employees do not seem to perform to expectations in their roles - Some employees constantly screw up and there are no actions taken against them or improvements - Some employees do not want to interact or work with those employees, makes for an unhealthy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate more with teams - Take action instead of talking about taking action - Hold employees accountable for their constant poor performance.

    I worked at GDR Group

    Pros

    Paid well. Friendly HR. Should've been a great experience.

    Cons

    It wasn't mentioned I would be a contractor at a third party in the interview process. My boss was also a contractor for GDR and played a lot of political games to go full time there. She was weird and backwards, and wasn't effective communicating. She'd fly into rages over things she'd structured and passed off that weren't received well, then blame it on everyone else. We were treated as inferior contractors by employees....

    Advice to Management

    Good for when you are starting out in the IT field.

    Cons

    Sexist management, leads throw you under the bus to supervisors fo rfollowing their advise, denies time off for Doctor appointments, unprofessional supervisors who cuss at you out and yell at you, little to no training, confusing documentation, lack of communication with contracted customers, discrimination of people with certain health problems, failure to flirt with management will get you written up, low pay, don't...

    Advice to Management

    Treat both women and men the same, when people have health problems that have been documented to you give them what they need, communicate better with customer you contract with, don't come up with bogus claims against an employee because she respects herself enough not to flirt with you to get her way, be professional with your employees and listen to their side of the story, do not tolerate leads throwing other employees...

    Former Employee - Logistics in Irvine, CA

    I worked at GDR Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Much freedom to work at your own pace. This job was very low-stress. Many of my fellow co-workers were very cool and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Some management needs more training in management skills. In my case, there was a little bit of a hazing problem when I first started. This continued on, especially to those who were foreign.

    Advice to Management

    Improve team cohesion, take classes on how to manage a team. During downtimes, think of tasks your team can do so they do not get bored.

    Pros

    The pay was decent. Tools provided were sufficient. Break areas were nice. Not much else.

    Poorly managed. Inconsistent rule/ policy enforcement. Special treatment of certain employees were obvious. Hypocrisy is rampant from management.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate special treatment and treat everyone as equals.
