    I have been working at GalaxE.Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Work for a progressive firm with cutting edge technology and ability to use your discretion as an engineer. Lot's of smart people and great ideas.
    -Great engineering leadership. Their style is of a servant leader, flat organization with clear growth opportunities
    -Detroit is very entrepreneurial and growing fast. I'm glad they emphasize quality as they scale out.
    -TL;DR: If you want to grow fast as an engineer and be exposed to a LOT of technologies, go for it!

    Cons

    -Detroit culture is fundamentally different than the rest of GalaxE, in a good way. The management style and work/life balance is really good.
    -Be wary: The non-Engineering staff (many people that wrote recent negative reviews), do not interact with the Engineering staff. This is a good thing because their culture and way of working has not improved like the Engineering division of Detroit. Their leadership needs to work more with the Engineering staff to have a better culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow Detroit to thrive and use their way of working & culture as an example for the larger organization, including non-Engineering staff in Detroit

    Pros

    Free lunches on Mondays, downtown area

    Cons

    Everything else, Backstabbing environment, High school scheme for being popular or not

    Advice to Management

    The management is aware of the bad reviews on all job boards but nobody does anything to change the status quo.
    They keep singing praises to themselves on how great they are while providing free lunches on Mondays. In reality, everybody rolls their eyes and just continue chowing the food.
    Unless you're a fresher, stay away! Their ability to place you on a project lies in the greatest profit margin. While "freshers" can easily be placed on projects, more senior people will be waiting to be placed on a project. Once that happens, they may be allowed to bill just 5-7 hours per week for the project work because the project may have a fixed price and a tight deadline.
    Management will ask for technical questions but you will not be part of the client meetings. They will go talk to the client to pretend to be smart by asking technical questions. In reality they do not know what they're talking about.
    Most managers do not even know how to spell and grossly misuse English grammar to the point that you wonder how they even made it through middle school, let alone college or being a manager.
    The management is elected based on nepotism and cronyism.
    During the interview the manager used the word "PUKE" to say he did not want to "puke" any technical terms that clearly he wasn't knowledgeable about.
    The entire experience is like a fake high school musical or like a college fraternity party gone wrong.
    When they cannot justify your employment because of their inability to place you on a real project, you're out! You cannot be surprised, but only relieved that the nightmare is over.
    They only make a huge profit hiring OPT, H1b and any "fresher" that management describes as "hungry", "desperate", "working dog", etc.
    They are coming up with employment experiments where they hire a few freshers for a month long "training" which is nothing but a cut-throat backstabbing environment where only the most cunning survive.
    You've been warned!

    Pros

    Look at all of the reviews and you'll soon see the vast majority rate Galax.e as a poor place to work and advance your career.

    Cons

    Management is untrustworthy. It's a body shop.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of IT staffing. You give IT contracting a bad name.

    Pros

    For the beginner looking to get their start in the recruiting industry.

    Cons

    -Project Managers constantly reschedule interviews with potential candidates because they miss interviews
    - Slow feedback from management
    - Many communication barriers

    Advice to Management

    -Listen to employees
    -VP shouldn't ask his employees to conduct a SWAT analysis on the department. That is the VP's responsibility. Very unprofessional and it makes it seem like you don't know how to handle your position.
    - Don't hold so many pointless meetings.
    - Create better relationships with your clients
    - Fix communication barriers

    Pros

    You have a job. Nothing beyond.

    Cons

    For goodness sake please have a decent management in place. There is no professionalism in managing the show. The company has survived solely on the back of hardworking H1B's , who get treated like slaves by most managers. Growth in the company is purely based on nepotism. Most managers sheer wastage on resources.

    Advice to Management

    change management, nothing else will work. There is no culture in the company. More that half of the spineless managers believe in 'You scratch my back, I will scratch your back' , incompetent is the only word that comes to mind to describe them.
