    I have enjoyed my time with GIS. I've held several position within the company since I started and have recommended friends and family to work here. The new executive management team has taken great strides to improving the company.

    Cons

    There are areas of the company that do have areas for improvement but overall I have no complaints

    Continue on the current path to improve the company.

    Pros

    Stability, location, and friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Raises are not given yearly, in a timely manner, or in beneficial amounts. Benefits have a lot of room for improvement (especially medical and no retirement plan outside of 401K).

    Advice to Management

    As a whole, show more appreciation to your employees. Also, yearly monetary bonuses as a show of appreciation for time with the company would be great.

    I have been working at General Information Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I receive health insurance, which I use for my medial visits, as I have several ailments. I am able to save my finances, which I have not been able to do so since I did not have a job before. I receive free meals sometimes from GIS when I come here on the weekend.

    Cons

    I have problem with my computer screen coming up lately, as it disconnects when I first try to log on. I think I may be exposed to third hand smoking from chain smokers and it also very cold where I sit at, as both factors may trigger my allergies. There is also no supervisor in my area at night. The refrigerator also needs to be cleaned out more often.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management should do their best to aid employees the best way possible.

    Pros

    Management cares about me as a person and I have been given multiple opportunities to learn so much!

    Cons

    We need better communication between departments.

    Make sure to get around and meet as many people as possible. We want to work for people that we know rather than aloof figures aren’t around. Thank you for all of the positive motivation that you have been sharing with us.

    Pros

    Small company, reasonably easy job. Nice coworkers, but you can ignore them easily and do your job if you’d prefer. Can move up quickly if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    The current merger is a cause for some apprehension.

    Advice to Management

    Employees would probably appreciate more recognition.
