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

    Pros

    Govplace offers a fantastic corporate culture. Time and time again, I’ve heard new and current employees explain that they were attracted to Govplace and/or remain with the company because of the people and the culture; myself included. The overwhelming majority of employees genuinely like each other and enjoy going to work every day. That’s a very big deal.

    Govplace is truly a collaborative team environment made up of some of the smartest and most driven, yet human and humble, group of individuals I’ve ever worked with. No matter how busy folks get, everyone does their best to jump in and lend a hand, answer questions, share ideas, brainstorm or to simply listen.

    While we work hard in a fast-paced environment, maintaining a healthy work/life balance is encouraged. Everyone understands that there will be times when circumstances in our personal lives take priority over work. No questions asked.

    Cons

    Depending on your department or business unit, there can be limited opportunity for upward mobility. The same can be said for most smaller companies.

    PTO isn’t as competitive as other companies similar in size and industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Continue identifying areas of the business that could be improved and iron out the kinks. Continue soliciting feedback from your team members - we appreciate it. Continue to keep your doors and minds open.
