    I have been working at Gilbert Garcia Group PA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -I started entry level and was given the chance to advance and learn. -The company works with staff members in accommodating their personal time off and allows you to make up time lost due to personal issues as long as you notify management ahead of time, not many companies will offer this. - The staff is shown appreciation on a monthly basis with luncheons, personal motivation training, fun times (movies, bowling,...

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be too much gossip, but then again, I have never been in a work environment where there is NOT office gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work by listening and understanding your staff's needs. It is understandable that you can not please everyone all the time, but it seems to me that the majority of staff members are heard and pleased with the outcomes of everyday work life.

    I worked at Gilbert Garcia Group PA full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were exceptional. Even without the support from management, we worked together to get the job done.

    Cons

    This firm lacks quality training. They provide very poor training and then counsel you when your work is incorrect. The management team can be compared to a bunch of bullies in high school with the owner as the leader of the pack. There is a lot of favoritism and if you do not say or do whatever the owner wants you to, then you will be harassed until you get fired or quit. Some of the managers including the owner create...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Gilbert Garcia Group PA

    Pros

    Owner run company. Owner greets all employees personally each morning and welcomes all to visit her in her office. Enjoyed volunteering for community projects with other employees. Beautiful building.

    Cons

    Need more team building activities, all employees with all management and partners, not work related. Need to do it during work day, so everyone will participate. Need consistent training. Need an employee committee voted in annually by the employees. All employees should be able to volunteer to help the employee committee with functions, (fund raisers, brainstorming, planning quarterly parties for employees and families.

    Pros

    Worked with some nice people.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional, not a "real law firm" CEO has no idea what she's doing. Micromanaging at its finest. Religious propaganda all throughout the place. Highest turnover rate of ANY company I've worked for. CEO takes everything personally. Horrible business woman with two other quacks by her side.

    I worked at Gilbert Garcia Group PA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My direct manager was nice. That's it.

    Cons

    They fired good staff and left college students here for the summer on staff because they were friends of the family. No sympathy or understanding for people going through a rough patch in their lives. Super political and favoritism at its worst. The ONLY hr on staff is the absolute rudest person I've ever come across. No actual training in place. No method to the madness. Trial and error is their phylosophy which would...

    Pros

    Ummmmm... Can't come up with any

    Cons

    They keep cutting staff and leaving the garbage in place. But they have garbage running the place. Clearly no management training or understanding of fair workplace environments. The only people welcome there are the people that will do whatever they are told whether it's right or not. But, that is the practice.

    Advice to Management
