    Pros

    If you like lower than industry standard wages, this is the job for you! Watch your back! You never know when you will have a dagger in it!

    Cons

    The amount of time spent looking for ways to place blame on workers is unbelievable. Every item that is placed into development allegedly has customer approval and has been reviewed by a Program Manager, Business Analyst, Team Lead and peer revirlews. Unless you truly enjoy being singled out for errors resulting from poorly gathered requirements or working with incomplete information... run. There are managers who consistently control the flow of information in order to maintain a false competitive edge over employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do you ever think about the amount of employee turnover? That really means something about the work environment... toxic.

    I worked at GTL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Good place to get your feet wet if you're new to IT, or fresh out of college.

    Cons

    There is not any room for growth, unless you relocate. The compensation is considerably below the local averages, no integrity. Made several promises upon hiring, none were followed through on, just recieved one excuse after another. They hire new employees fresh out of college, and pay them more than there tenured employees doing the same roll. Raises were tiny, if you got one at all ( >2% )

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your existing employees, and have some personal as well as corporate integrity.
