    I worked at GP Strategies full-time

    Great work environment with amazing people and teams. Senior leaders are down to earth, relatable and passionate about the company and its employees. Leadership is investing in tools and systems that will improve the employment experience for all employees.

    No major cons during my employment. I am thankful for the learning opportunities and experiences made available to me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to changes that recruit, retain, and engage the right employees. Talented and hardworking employees are key to the company's growth and performance. The company is on a great path forward.

    I worked at GP Strategies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have good benifits.
    I think the company is good to work for.
    Nice office

    Cons

    My supervisor was a crazy white haired guy that has NO place in the business world.
    HR was totally unresponsive to mine and other complaints about the individual in question.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and fire the ones that continually are called before HR and even attorneys.

    Pros

    Excellent work environment nice place to work

    Cons

    Disorganized internal support Lack of siloed system of responsibility lack of good remote support tools. Lack of review of employee progress and your exit interviews are awful.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate your responsibilities to a siloed structure get a better escalation process, consolidate your managment to 1 continent instead of spreading out across 2-3.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, nice office environment

    Cons

    Never had a raise; salaries now frozen. Hours are being cut back due to declining client contracts, despite continued advertising for open positions. Employees are responsible for ensuring they have 40 hours of client work per week, which is assigned by management. If management doesn't assign you client work, you don't get paid, and are held responsible for being unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new people if you can't keep your current "full-time" employees at 40 hours per week.

    Pros

    The work schedule here is very flexible, and you are surrounded by some really smart, creative, and hard working co-workers.

    Cons

    Although there are opportunities to take on responsibilities and grow your career, you are not properly compensated for those added responsibilities. They expect that you want to take on a more important role, but they're not willing to pay for it.

    Pros

    GP has a growing profile in the L&D space. Many people are committed to serving their customers. We offer a broad offering of professional services and create real value for our clients.

    Cons

    GP has many business units unrelated to learning so it seems there are several GPs. Growth by acquisition without good integration of new companies. Customers don't develop a full understanding of what we offer. No investment in professional development and pay transparency (critical wage stagnation is unaddressed.) Old boy senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Offer career counseling, real performance management, and invest in your people. Listen to the masses who care about fixing this fragmented organization. Help newly acquired employees from different acquisitions develop an understanding of role and pay fairness.

    The environment is a team oriented and motivating workplace.

    Advancement is important to employees.
