    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at The GFS Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work on multiple projects with little oversight. Great to learn if you are just starting out in construction.

    Cons

    Senior management never listens to opinions. Women are viewed as second class citizens. Not enough paid time off. Negative atmosphere. Only men are considered for advancement. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees views.

    "Very stressful environment"

    Pros

    I received a paycheck every week.

    Cons

    The CORE (Management) only look out for themselves. They promise bonuses to everyone then they don't pay out. They expect you to work ungodly hours including weekends or at home. It is what I imagine that prison would be like. It is the most stressful environment that I have ever had to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take a long hard look at how they treat the people there, and learn that when you do that, you will continue to lose key employees that you have. You need to remember that you spend more time with them than you do your families and treat them with a lot more respect.
