    I have been working at GLV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lax vibe in the office. If you get your work done, there’s considerable leniency.

    Cons

    Average to below average industry compensation for similar positions. Owners could sell the company at any time and have shown a history to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in IT instead of wasteful offsite training that doesn’t result in any changes internally. Follow through on your initiatives.

    I worked at GLV full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Family oriented employee base. Employees drive wellness committee and encourage management to make office changes/updates to policy and environment which fosters great moral.

    Cons

    Not a high paying employer compared to other companies/industries in the area

    Advice to Management

    Dont be so short sided on employee resources. The company gets put in bad positions with customer warranty or just trying to satisfy orders because the employee base is run so lean and people have to wear so many hats. Need to create a straight forward culture of quality and value of work for the customer and not being first focused on the cheap. That's where execution suffers and employees get frustrsted.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at GLV full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Past organizations that from the foundation of this business providers drive and good sense of team work. Product base and technology is good albeit resting on laurels from the 60-70-80-90 minor improvements.

      Cons

      There's frugal then there's cheap, and they are cheap to the point of wasting vs saving on expenses. No incentives, top management issues supporting statements during meetings but do nothing as follow-up. Recent realignments shows little impact yet much confusion.

      Advice to Management

      If you claim to invest in the employees because they are the base of the company's existence then start rewarding them accordingly. Relinquish Old style management, old boys club and get some traction for sustainability.

      I have been working at GLV full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      No rules, and sometimes they take you out to eat, they some times give you a bonus for working a little extra hard but this is rare

      Cons

      No benefits and verty dusty, the management team needs to work on stratifies to work with employees and understand their needs.

      Advice to Management

      I understand the business is still growing but pay attention to your most valuable asset, your employees

        I worked at GLV for more than 6 years

        Pros

The company grows primarily though acquisitions and and controls acquisition costs in large part by sell off of acquired company assets, while maintaining acquired intellectual property.

        Small understaffed global work force is the norm. Generally salary is below the industry average. In some areas of the company, employee can not take annual vacation days since there would be no one to perform the duties assigned.

        Advice to Management

        Provide on going professional training to all employees.

        I worked at GLV full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        High expectations to employees in a company who are 100% bottom line focused, do you like the constant pressure and abilities to be part of something that can be big in the future it is worth a career.

        Cons

        Focus on mistakes rather than success of employees - make 50 good and 1 bad project and you are judged on the bad one. Entrepreneurs are only for Executive team.

        Advice to Management

        create an environment of trust and engagement and you will reach your results.
