    I worked at Global Resource Solutions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment, supportive people who cut through obstacles and let you get your work done.

    I did not see any cons at GRSi.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Global Resource Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for the job and very flexible. They'll work with your schedule. They provide your work shirts free of charge and they provide different types of training.

    Cons

    No benefits other than 401K and employee discount program, because they hired the security escorts temporary part time instead of full time. There IS No Secret clearance; just suitability. Perhaps it just depends on the site one works. I though I'd get health insurance for my family and I and the clearance; that's why I applied.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful and up front about everything. Please revise your job description if escorts don't actually get secret clearances. Put US on company health insurance as well; we've earned it.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment. Great benefits package. Flexible work schedule. Incredible work-Life balance. Diversified through business units and agencies. I work with a great bunch of professionals that understand business and family and work to achieve the best of both worlds.

    Cons

    As a recruiter, with an OPs and BD background I find that I encounter self induced stress in order to meet deadlines. Proposals can be tedious if you don't have the right managers, but we are able to handle multiple proposals and deadlines.

    I have been working at Global Resource Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Collaboration - Not just encouraged, expected. Our senior management, and corporate executives want everyone involved in the process, from soup to nuts.
    Family - Working at GRS makes you feel like a part of the family. They are always there for you, and we look out for each other with new opportunities and suggestions.

    Cons

    I have not had any issues with working at GRS. It is a growing company and I feel very much a part of the team.

    I worked at Global Resource Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay
    TRY to keep their employees as informed as possible as to the status of gov't contracts and future opportunities
    Flexible with their hours/com-time

    Cons

    Not quite as understanding of Military sacrifices- meaning one of the few companies that do not do military pay differential.... because of the disparity of mil pay vs average salary. They do however allow you to make up hours before and after to try to compensate- as allowable by the contract.

    Advice to Management

    see cons... understand- it isn't like serving our country and state is vacation... we should not suffer economically in order to serve.
