    I have been working at Gorkana full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a small proportion of employees who are very good at what they do and who can help you learn a lot in a very small space of time.

    Cons

    Do not become good at your job here. There is a direct correlation between how good you are here and the increasing number of hours you will work. This is particularly true of the analysis team, where it seems to be standard to have a good portion of their employees working 50+ hours each week on average.

    There is a lot of talk about working on one's personal/professional development but that is often preached by managers and operational heads who are untrained. Assume this to mean development for the department regardless of whether it is of interest to you.

    Advice to Management

    When churn is so high, you really need to address the problem at the core. Stop just restocking with newer employees and make sure you're able to retain the current workforce.
