    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.

    They give people a chance to work.
