    I worked at Great Place To Work full-time

    Pros

    -Some friendly people in the office

    Cons

    - Though friendly, many fake people in the office
    - Company wouldn't come close to making any of their own lists - how can you consult for other companies when you can't even implement something in-house
    - Lack of transparency despite being so few employees
    - Constant re-organizations that add no real value
    - High employee turnover, not great for clients who need stability with their change management

    I have been working at Great Place To Work full-time

    Pros

    Strong leadership focused on helping people realize their full potential as a way to achieve our full business potential. Business decisions are grounded in company values. Communications are transparent, and senior leadership is accessible. The work is motivating, my colleagues are inspiring, and I can't imagine working anywhere else.

    Cons

    If you enjoy gossip and drama or don't like a very fast-paced environment, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! You inspire me every day!

    I have been working at Great Place To Work full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great work from home policy
    -Low manager to staff ratio
    -Minority CEO, President, and VP
    -Pretty good perks (i.e. annual fund given to each employee to spend on personal use)
    -Innovative environment
    -Very smart group of staff, easy to get along with, employees care about each other
    -We work hard, and also have fun
    -free snacks and coffee/tea (coffee is small batch and local, none of that big box stuff)
    Overall, management has a clear view of where the company is going. They are transparent and easy to talk to. They trust their employees, no "looking over your shoulder" management. I'd recommend a job here to someone that is looking for an environment where they can be innovative, likes to work collaboratively, and has time to put in hard work with great returns.

    Cons

    -Seems to good to be true

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and stakeholder to drive innovation
