    It's my first internship, but when I first got to the supporting group in Beijing, there is no colleague or supervisor. I felt pretty lost.

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home
    Opportunities to work in different industries
    Good benefits
    Smart and capable coworkers

    Cons

    Company does not value and respect employees. I watched as people who were committed to the company for 15+ years were fired to bring on cheaper employees. No stability. Each time a project finished up we were left wondering if we would remain employed or not. Management is all over the place. Each project seemed as if it was the first because there were no standard processes in place. Can be difficult to get needed software to complete projects.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision about staff. Either keep them or move to using consultants. Keeping staff in limbo between each project is destructive to employee morale and affects employee commitment.

    Pros

    Diverse Client Base.
    Diverse employee base

    Cons

    GP basically sells many of the same products and services across different business and repackages them with different titles and names.
    Meetings upon meetings upon meetings to get nothing done.
    Leadership loves to communicate in business colloquialisms instead of saying what they mean.
    GP Employees pay the price for Leadership's poor judgement by being overworked and/or terminated.
    GP Clients pay the price through Leadership's poor judgement in project and cost overruns.
    GP Business and Stockholders pays the price in Leadership's poor judgement through declining sales, unsatisfied customers and goals not being met.
    There is no loyalty to employees especially when outrageous goals are formulated, yet not communicated properly and then implemented with no employee buy-in or participation resulting in unrealistic expectations. When those expectations are not met, Leadership takes no responsibility or ownership and casts the blame downward instead of upward.

    Advice to Management

    As a company that sells itself as a empowering people to perform above their potential, you really should take a look inward. If you can't implement and practice within GP what you sell, it is disingenuous to be selling those concepts to your clients.
