    Pros

    Co Workers, Management/Directors, Travel, Perks

    Cons

    Compensation, limited private work space, never a lot of people in the office.

    Advice to Management

    While pay is low, it is really a great company to work for. Work on pay and company will better be able to retain its talented people.

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

    Pros

    Working from home. Free coffee and water.

    Cons

    Amateur directors treating subordinates like crap. Being a part of a publicly traded global organization. Upper management will act like they think you’re valuable when you’re with the company but it’s a lie—don’t drink the kool-aid. I worked in their HQ and the people there are not helpful and don’t want you to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Go private.

    I worked at onPeak full-time

    Pros

    Internal department team and directors.

    Cons

    Exec team and company philosophy and values.

    Advice to Management

    Complete revamp. It’s a boys club they have no vision, work in a bubble and clearly boast entitlement.

    Pros

    Very welcoming team.
    Work from home
    The executives and directors actually care about you as a person
    Fun company outings
    Travel for work
    Awesome company culture
    Summer Fridays

    Cons

    The only con I have is that I wish the position paid more. Other than that I think this is an amazing company to work for. onPeak has some of the best company culture I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    I think my director and manager are awesome. They have always been there for me to help me with whatever I needed. They are also very easy to talk to and are flexible. Its nice to work at a company where your VPs and executives know who you are.

    The only advice I would give is I wish that other departments understood our role better, it can sometimes feel discouraging when people ask "what does an EGA/GSA even do?". when we actually do a lot more than people give us credit for.

    I worked at onPeak full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits nd vacation time

    Cons

    1. Nothing cohesive between departments
    2. Very high school click mode
    3. More Gossip than reality TV
    4. Turnover rate high
    5. Lack of cummication between anyone
    6. Disconnect between managers and employees
    7. Questionable business practices
    8. Untrustworthy upper management
    9. Inability to create an environment of inclusion and understanding
    10. Too much focus on the bottom line and not enough investment in employee satisfaction
    11. Employee development is non existant.
    12. Company tools are outdated and lackluster
    13. Workload does not match the pay rate.
    14. The right hand (onpeak) doesn’t know what the left hand (GES) is doing and it creates unnecessary conflicts

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee development and the heart of the company. Focus of trying to improve the software to make it easier for guests. Don’t spread your employees so thin. Learn to value the quality of work as much as the quantity. Actually become the company you promote and pretend to be.

    Pros

    Get to travel and sometimes work from home and easy location to get to on public transportation.

    Cons

    Bad pay, no training, the managers gossip like they are in high school. When you start you are thrown to the wolves so to speak. They say you can ask for help but don't bother.

    Advice to Management

    Get new managers in there and listen to your employees!
