    I worked at Guident Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was high for a student just out of college, the opportunity for career and pay growth was very good, and the ability for me to work independently but also get guidance when needed was great. I felt valued for the hard work I

    Cons

    Management could be better with follow-through on the work of some employees when work has strict deadlines.

    I worked at Guident Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly good people to work with. Had some really great ideas and built solutions. Sales and consulting worked together well. Had the ability to wear many hats because of the company size and desire to grow.

    Cons

    Some bureacracy. Ocasionally difficult to make changes that the consultant might feel is necessary - channels and roadblocks when trying to help with marketing.

    I worked at Guident Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly when you start
    Employees are really dedicated

    Cons

    I was working on a contract as a Process Analyst. The prime treated me like an administrative assistant and then told Guident that I wasn't working up to par. I was called in to headquarters with the expectation that they were going to put me on another contract and they let me go due to work performance. I had sent my Guident manager an email letting him know what was going on and he didn't do anything to improve the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees feedback and be more proactive to make their work environment a positive one.

    I worked at Guident Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The synergy between management and technical staff was amazing in the early days. If that synergy had continued, I would still be there.

    Cons

    Guident grew considerably. When one of the partner's sadly passed away, a slow process of decay began in the culture and ultimate acquisition of the company by another.

    Advice to Management

    The old management has passed. Many of the key personnel have moved on as well.
    Acquisition was the death knell..
