    Pros

    I have been employed by GCW for 10 years. I have seen many faces come and go. That said, people who follow the extensive ongoing training and try to learn from others who are successful can achieve financial reward.

    Cons

    You must have the ability to learn by trial and error what works. You must be able to work in a structured environment and withstand growing pains.

    Pros

    I have worked for GCW three separate occasions, which in my opinion speaks volumes about the company, because I keep coming back. I've worked for several oil companies and I can assure you that there is no company out there that is as a well oiled machine, as GCW is. If you can't be successful here, you won't be successful in the industry. Everything that you need to be successful will be provided for you. And if you are looking to get into the industry, they have an extensive training program to give you the foundation you will need to get up and running.

    Cons

    It's a tough job, it's not for everyone. You have to have a good mental mind set for this industry.

    Pros

    Gulf Coast western is a prolific company, that strives for excellence in every way. It has been a breath of fresh air working for a company that actually does what they say they will do, and that actually has the clients best interest in mind as much as their own. They literally do seek out the best opportunities for their investors and do everything top notch from start to finish. This approach ensures good long term relationships between the company and it's investors. It's a family oriented company that includes treating the investors as well as employees as family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons to working here.

    Pros

    The company is run as a TRUE family business. The CEO, the office manager, and the back office are always willing to provide you with the tools and support for the reps to be successful.

    Cons

    The firm expects and DEMANDS their reps to work hard and always keep their investors up to date. A LOT is expected from the sales team...but it is worth it...you MUST be willing to totally immerse yourself in the way that GCW expects you to conduct business, or you will "not make the grade"....and be gone

    Pros

    I have worked there going on 6 years. It is a great company to work for. They provide all the tools you will need to be successful. The training program is very comprehensive and the managers always there to help you. You have unlimited earning potential if you put the work in, Great benefits, health insurance, 401(k) and Very generous vacation time

    Cons

    It is not for everyone., you must have a self starter mentality and strong work ethic. If you put the time in you will succeed.

    Pros

    Family owned firm treats you like family even during the tough oil market we are in (Beverly the CEO’s 84 mom has been here for decades)with good benefits. The training program is detailed here and a great place to start a career in investments/sales. All sales staff go to well drill sites and meet operators within their first year. Product knowledge and regulatory standards are taught in great detail.

    Cons

    Not enough room for career advancement due to the size (50 employees)

    Pros

    Gulf Coast Western was a fun place to work. A company that still shuts down for 10 days so the employees can spend time with their families, without taking away vacation days! A true family business with multiple generations in the office.

    Cons

    Insurance was a pretty high deductible, but the company pays 100% of premium for the employee.
