    Pros

    Interesting technology and what applications they are used for world-wide. As always, the people I work with.

    Cons

    Not really a downside, GSSI is at a point of tremendous growth, and adjustment to this takes patience and time.

    Advice to Management

    Confrontation is OK, and at times, required.

    I worked at Geophysical Survey Systems

    Pros

    The company is quite stable and has cornered the market within the last 40 years.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is as fake as plastic. It is a very caddy environment, it is almost like high school. The attitudes of the veterans make it very difficult for a newer person to be comfortable. It is hard to find someone not speaking negatively behind your back. The management does not seem receptive towards newer associates ideas, nor will they back you up on a conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management. Be honest with your subordinates. Value honesty and integrity. Stop catering to the needs of one person. Favoritism is rampant here., change your culture.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I regret to hear you've had a negative experience while employed with us, as GSSI’s management team and I want to foster a culture consisting of employee satisfaction along with welcoming, open communications. I’m hoping you will ...

    I have been working at Geophysical Survey Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is a very comfortable and relaxed environment with a friendly atmosphere. The market is slow, diverse, and unsophisticated, thus layoffs have been uncommon in this company's 40+ year history. Turnover is also low and job security is very high. Management treats employees very well and are very approachable. Products are very high quality and reliable. Company is growing rapidly.

    Cons

    The market size is growing and GSSI is riding the 'rising tide' . Many of the old timers see this financial windfall as justification to adhere to the ill-principled engineering practices and archaic technologies for which the market has historically forgiven us. We are experiencing growing pains as the organization is having difficulty scaling

    Advice to Management

    Upper management does seem to recognize the need to innovate and has been doing well in this regard, despite opposition by many of the 'long timers', for whom change is uncomfortable.
