    Not a lot of room for advancement since employees stay.

    Pros

    I would consider Global Shop one of the greatest companies that anyone could ever work for. The environment and people that work there is what makes me excited to go to the office every morning and work my hardest. I have never been around such a professional, encouraging, motivating and loving group of people. Business is always booming and no one should pass up the opportunities that Global Shop has to offer.

    Cons

    The bagels that are brought in every Friday morning are not helping my diet!

    Pros

    Family-owned, and very personable. President knows everyone by name, even as we approach 200 employees. Offers a quarterly bonus to all employees (depending on sales that quarter). A little bit of flexibility in work schedule.

    A lot of technical changes planned in the future puts a lot of pressure on the R&D department for the next few years, but will be well worth it.
