    I have been working at George P. Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Learn a lot in a short period of time. -Good experience and looks good on resume. -Networking opportunities with big name clients (think, Google, Salesforce, IBM, and more). -Unlimited FTO (most managers still limit you to two weeks though so it depends who your manager is and what programs you are on). -People who work there (aside from upper management) are friendly and fun to work with. -Frequent 1:1s with your...

    Cons

    -No room for growth. With reviews only taking place once a year, there are not many opportunities for raises or promotions. If you don't get a promotion during the month of reviews, you're stuck waiting around for another year for one. -A lot of promoting externally, not much promoting from within. With such a high turnover rate, many outsiders are brought in but it would be nice if they looked at existing employees...

    Advice to Management

    -Invest more in your existing employees. Turnover is high for a reason. People are initially attracted to GPJ but after a few months they realize there is no room for growth. Unless you get hired at a senior level, you will never be appreciated at this company. -All the "perks" sound nice but they don't make up for low wages, office politics, and unreal expectations. This is especially true when these perks don't turn...

    Pros

    GPJ has amazing benefits that most company’s don’t offer. The great team and exposure to senior executive leadership is unlike anywhere else.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging due to industry.

      Pros

      Good benefits. If you are able to use them.

      Cons

      FTO is great, but the company frowns on those who actually take it. Training is non-existent -the throw you into the water without a life vest or flotation device is the norm. Bullying mentality from senior staff is condoned. Gender-biased culture. Lots of interpersonal drama and clicks.

      Eco friendly Environment and know each other.

      Cons

      I don't think so there are challenges but you work in the company is part of challenges.

      When you work in GPJ is part of family and take of employees.

      The people are friendly and CEO Chris Meyer's is great. Same with Marcelle Hampton :) Travel is good too, many cities in the US.

      Some people don't like the accounts they are on and complain about the client. But that's the world/work we do in the events industry.....

      Pros

      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...
