    I worked at Gilbane full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Present in many markets across the country. Employees have the option to work in multiple market sectors

    Cons

    Company lost some of its family owned vibe, when it put a non-family member at the helm.

    Advice to Management

    Make every effort to maintain the family vibe, as you grow through acquisition
