    I have been working at General Information Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Always something to learn, never boring!

    Cons

    Could use better benefits but all people feel that way about the companies they work.

    Advice to Management

    I read so many negative things about GIS that could put a bad taste in mouths of people who are not familiar with the Company. I have to say I have been with GIS for 17+ years (starting in operations and slowly working my way up to other positions) I have had managers, supervisor and team leads. They have pushed me outside my comfort zone and forced me to grow (sometimes when I felt reluctant to do so). These people have also never asked me to do ANYTHING they wouldn't do themselves. I am grateful everyday that I choose to Work For a Company that not only gave me a job but has provided me a career. I have daily support (if needed) and words of encouragement (when needed). I did not get where I am overnight and it wasn't easy. Like anything in life you have to work hard for the opportunities that are provided to you (they are not just handed out). If you want a job just to collect a pay check and expect things to be handed to you, then this is not the job for you. I feel many of the negative comments come from people who want to do very little and expect something big to happen for them. I work with all departments in GIS and lots of executive management amd everyone is truly amazing. Sure not everything is roses; however, that is true for all companies. I truly love my work family and am thankful for them every single day!!!

    I have been working at General Information Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It used to be the flexible hours but now the new manager took that too. I guess the dress code is a pro.

    Cons

    After we got a new manager, everything went downhill. We get treated like babies, yet our work is what keeps the company moving .

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing things that don’t need to be broken! And stop making false promises! Bring air meetings back and try to have a connection with people other than your own race because that’s literally the only people you talk to when you come to the floor. You promised us so many things before moving from SC, and since you got here all I see is you replacing things that work perfectly fine.

    Pros

    The people within the company that you would work with day-to-day are some great people.

    Cons

    It is an "Old Boy's Network" kind of place. There is a lot of backstabbing and political handshaking going on. There is no structure for career paths and no way to get ahead unless favored by "the select few".

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly!!!

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, easy work, love my work family and the Team Leads, Supervisors and new Manager are great!

    Cons

    Pay and benefits. I work USPS and its ridiculous that employees doing the same work on other teams make way less than us. It's not fair and the company needs to fix this! It's very disappointing reading the reviews about Management. New management continues to work hard to make positive changes within our organization. The Ops Manager and the Supervisors recognize employees on a monthly basis and give out gift cards. We feel more appreciated now than we ever did before. The people complaining in these reviews are the lazy, entitled employees who want to get paid for nothing. They're negative and unhappy with themselves so they spread lies. Same people who spend more time chatting instead of working. I work hard and take my job seriously and I'm very happy that new management set expectations to hold people accountable. Tired of laziness!

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate management and my supervisors and team leads. Please continue doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Positive change for is needed to make our company grow

    Cons

    Some employees are having difficulty with change but don't suggest positive solutions

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing good things. A year ago we were complaining about morale, injustice and unfair practices and today some people want to point fingers and blame others for trying to make things better. Maybe we should stop spreading rumors and whispering negativity around the office and just do our jobs.
