      I worked at GEI full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Some really excellent people work here, it’s a shame that they are stuck in this mess though.

      Cons

      Where there are nice things people there are also complete turds. Sarcastic, not funny, entitled, hate their job and take it out on other people are a few descriptions of some of the people that work at gei works.

      Advice to Management

      Less meetings please. Too many times the entire sales office is completely empty and every single salaperson is in a meeting at once for hours at a time during business hours while the phones ring off the hook. The constant doom and gloom about needing cash immediately so bills and employees can get paid is not the right way to motivate your employees. It will just make people want to jump ship. Stability is important....

      I worked at GEI full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Weekly pay. Take the quick money and get out!

      Cons

      Revolving Door! Don't bother making friends with your co-workers. I have not seen a company with such a low retention rate. Every week I worked there at least two people were fired or decided to quit. Staff is moved into management positions like finance & human resources that have no prior knowledge or experience. Training is a complete joke! My advice, get hired and take the quick money while looking for your next job.

      Advice to Management

      Most of you were not qualified for your position anyways. Just keep kissing the owner's Butt and make your money.

    • Duplicitous in their hiring. No accountability for actions. Constant revolving door of hire to fire employees.

      I worked at GEI full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Location is in a decent area.

      Cons

      Worked there for 2 months. Within 7 weeks 6 people were fired or walked out. The department I was hired into eliminated, and my resume "reevaluated". I lasted one more week before being fired. This is a privately owned company where the owner is king. Very sketch. Don't waste your time. The longest tenured person there has been there five years.

      Advice to Management

      None to give. You know exactly what your doing and it's simply sad that the US doesn't have more laws to protect working citizens from companies like yours.

    • Nothing to write home about
