    I worked at GeoShack full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company has 25 years of history. CEO is a hard charger, and expects everyone else to be. The manufacturer, Topcon, is decent.

    Cons

    Culture is variable, but mostly bad. There are less miserable positions in the company (not for administration, though.)

    I worked at GeoShack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good people and lunch paid for once a month.

    Cons

    My experience working at Geoshack horrible. Lies, sexism and racism are rampant. Owner mocks people to make himself feel better. He is a narcissistic, control freak who prefers to talk down and intimidate rather than not have his way. Like a petulant child, he “leads” his band of managers who are yes men to his face and steal behind his back.

    I worked at GeoShack full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Can make some good money. It is a performance based pay scale and some locations or jobs have better opportunities than others.

    Cons

    Lots of time wasted in countless conference calls & severe micro-managing. You have to learn how to navigate through all the demands on time & occasional indignities to actually accomplish anything.

    Pros

    Company phone, company credit card.

    Cons

    Extreme distrustful upper management. 80% of the time is wasted in needless meetings, overview of every minuscule detail of your teams job and performance. No support for quality employee retention. Discrimination is rampant.
