    I have been working at GEP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One team approach on projects. Contributions are valued and employees are treated with respect. Executives "roll up their sleeves" and work hard alongside staff. Creativity and hard work are recognized and appreciated. There really are no limits to your professional success here if you decide to commit. Get ready to work hard and play hard in a very inclusive environment. A true meritocracy.

    Cons

    So far, I have not come across a "con" at this company. Of course, anyone looking hard enough for a negative will find something. You'll just have to look very hard at GEP. Great place to contribute your professional skills and grow in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Maintain the open communication with your employees that you have now. GEP is growing quickly and keeping the employees informed along the way reduces any stress that comes with the unknown.

    I have been working at GEP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is growing quickly so there are many opportunities for growth if you're open to it. Good place for self-starters and motivated people. Company does regular charity/community work and summer activities. Upper management very accessible.

    Cons

    New Jersey office becoming crowded because company is growing quickly. Would be nice to have a new space.

    Advice to Management

    Different workgroups seem to be separated from each other and it would be nice to know more about how we all fit together.

    I have been working at GEP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel so fortunate to have got this opportunity to work with GEP.
    GEP believes culture drives success. Workplace culture is everything. GEPPers - "works really hard for CLIENT DELIGHT". At GEP (across the globe), I love the adrenaline rush, constant fight for success, target oriented, totally self driven and the fast pace work environment, where your success is measured every hour.

    GEP allows to develop meaningful bonds with their fellow GEPpers irrespective of their designation, roles and department. People exchange ideas and personal opinions. Show empathy and concern for their well-being as a friend, as well as co-worker. GEP People even at Global leader’s level take time to learn about your families, educational background and career goals, provide solutions and valuable suggestions. It is the genuine interest in every single employee they show, that fosters a happier and fun filled workplace.

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing that I came across so far. I really wish this good feel and attitude towards GEP continues for long and I clearly see the management working hard and I promise to contribute to maintain the same.

    Advice to Management

    At GEP, we get this unique sense of belonging in a complete family like environment that makes us feel (every minute) that we are part of a beautiful company with beautiful people. I request the management to be this consistent and inspiring forever. GEP is growing in a too rapid pace. I wish them the best.

    I have been working at GEP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are good folks on a personal level. Willing to help you in any way possible to be successful.

    Cons

    Senior Management has no direction on what and how to proceed. Very reactive to clients needs and not willing to push back. Travel requirements of basically 100%... no separation of the work week and weekends... requests for deliverables late Friday to be accomplished by Monday/Tuesday.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is needed internally. Process should be developed to standardize the deliverables for the company. Stop trying to be a "Big 4" consulting firm... this is evident with your management styles and expectations. Putting the right folks in the right positions is key for success not just throwing bodies into a no-win situation. Lastly, making sure that GEP is aligned with the correct stakeholders... not a group that will try to make nice with the actual stakeholder. Employee retention is needed for SME experience...

    I have been working at GEP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GEP is rapidly growing management consulting firm focused on Procurement services. It's a great organization filled with friendly professionals who are at the top of their game! Everyone is a specialist in their vertical and are always willing and happy to help out their fellow GEP'er! I am proud to work for GEP and the future looks bright because our products and services are getting the recognition it deserves.

    Cons

    When a company grows as rapidly as GEP has grown over the last 2 years, there's bound to be some gaps. However the gaps get identified quickly and we push forward to better the company.

    Advice to Management

    GEP is a world class organization that I am proud to work for. I enjoy coming to work everyday! If I had one wish, it would be for GEP leadership to value the great Shared Services team as much as they value the consulting side of the house. While Shared services is not a profit center, we are essential to the continue growth and culture of GEP.
