    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Gibson Consulting full-time

    Pros

    - Many avenues for professional and personal growth

    - Travel schedule is reasonable

    - Top leadership has extensive knowledge of various industries

    Cons

    - Management is unclear when communicating expectations

    - Family members of CEO are given top priority and not held accountable. There are double standards

    - Heavily reliant on few clients.

    - Below average pay

    Advice to Management

    - Hold family members or friends of family members to the same standard as everyone else.

    - increase salaries. Below average industry salaries but aggressive billing. Where does the money go?

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gibson Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good exposure to client leadership, excellent training materials and workshops, flexible budget and willingness to support external development

    Cons

    questionable leadership on certain engagements, high turnover, uncertainty in job stability, very reliant on business with very few clients

    Advice to Management

    Overall Gibson was a good learning experience but it lacked of direction with assigned tasks but employees were dependent on future business with low confidence. The office culture was a bit isolated, travel was heavy and often unnecessary. There wasn't much of a feel of belonging - no established personal space - ie. no one has a desk, just a laptop and group spaces in a small office overcrowded office
