    Good Stepping Stone Company

    Pros

    GMR is always evolving and changing what they do. Fast paced environment and if you like to be challenged it is a good place to work. Recently the company enacted a work from anywhere policy, so if you like working from home and having a flexible work schedule it is a plus. Middle management cares about their employees and does a good job.

    Cons

    If you are not a fan of DEI they have enacted a mandatory credit system where there are a variety of topics to talk about, generally under pay their staff, no yearly raises (you have to fight yearly for one), High management seems to be disconnected from the managers and below on processes. There isn’t much room for negotiation, they basically give you a number and say take it or leave it.

    The pay, the leadership, the advancement opportunities… experience varies massively from office to office and team to team, but even the good crews aren’t given the resources to be effective or successful.
