    I have been working at Guidepoint full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working in the IT department at Guidepoint would benefit the developer career advancement greatly because of recent re-platforming initiative where all technology services were migrated to cloud based platform. This was the right move ensuring that Guidepoint is keeping up pace with the present time technological direction where IT world is generally moving towards to. Great point for getting the Cloud Architecture experience whether you are a web developer or other IT related role. Last, Guidepoint offers oportunities for career advancement for IT roles by encouraging and offering learning and online schooling resources which help extend the skill-set of IT department employees.

    Cons

    Perhaps employees could benefit from use of some on-site extracurricular activities such as games and/or competitions.

    Pros

    You get to know many industries

    Quite a bad position actually, just mostly telephone sales and just a call center, that's about it. People aren't the smartest around tbh and not very sharp looking.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Guidepoint full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no benefits to working here, unless you like a toxic and unhealthy work environment

    Cons

    Besides every negative thing repeatedly written about this company, the way they're treating employees during the pandemic shows a lot about the character of the leadership of this company. Making up pandemic-related performance reviews to justify firings while concealing massive losses during the crisis is dishonest at best and illegal at its very worst. Do not ever associate yourself with this company; the leadership is full of snakes and should honestly be in jail.

    Pros

    You can drink on a Friday from 4-6.

    Cons

    Nobody in the leadership actually cares about the employees. You are lucky if you have a manager who takes an interest in your growth as an employee. They treat the employees like cogs in a machine, and dont actually care/value them.
