          Really enjoyed the company and the team I worked with.

          Cons

          C team executive started sexually harassing me. Wouldn't leave my office, he would call me at all hours day/night on company cell - as well as email. Other team members noticed. No HR dept to report him to. Reported him to my (female) boss who worked remotely in another state as well as another c-level manager (male). He said that his phone had been stolen and it was not the (Mrg) emailing me/leaving me the vulgar...

          Pros

          GPJ is in the process of making major culture adjustments in the New York City office. They have done an excellent job hiring young, driven, experienced senior leadership, as well as a fantastic creative and strategy team. You will work a ton including weekends; however, if you have the ability to dedicate the time, the experience is second to none. You will have the opportunity to touch some of the worlds most iconic...

          I have been working at George P. Johnson full-time

          Pros

          There are some great people who pitch in to help each other succeed. Casual office environment, good benefits, flexible office hours and unlimited fto (which you really can’t use most of the time due to workloads as others said)

          Cons

          The work here has taken a bad turn. More of an accounting job than events job. Management completely focused on employees doing client finance work at the compromise of delivering successful events. Most of this work could be automated but due to completely outdated tools and processes be prepared to spend most of your days in excel spreadsheets. Management very out of touch. Pay below industry standard. The culture...

          Pros

          Unlimited FTO but good luck finding time to use it.

          Cons

          This office is going downhill quickly. Top performers are completely burned out and not compensated appropriately. What was once a positive work environment has been completely destroyed. Outdated tools and processes make the job near impossible, managers expectations are completely unrealistic. People who haven’t left yet have suffered health wise due to lack of any life balance.

          Advice to Management

          No one listens so not worth giving advice at this point
