Great work and coworkers, little support or recognition from organization
Principle Training Specialist (Former Employee) – Amherst, NY – 3 September 2016
This is a training company that does not believe in training their own employees. Everything must be learned on the fly. Management does not suffer mistakes well, and if one is made will not provide a second opportunity. They provide little support and expect the employee to produce with very tight timelines. The employee is expected to work over 40 hours a week without compensation and is an unwritten, though spoken rule.
The objectives given to advance were based on getting the right projects to perform the necessary tasks to achieve the objectives. Management however does not give opportunities to take on these tasks and continually uses the same people to perform the same jobs. Much like a factory. Thus, the company provides little opportunity to advance as I had to leave their employ and return to get a promotion which, became just a promotion in name only.
They have good, not great, benefits and compensation was decent.
The people I worked with were exceptional. GP does a very good job hiring outstanding employees. I very much enjoyed the people I worked with and the work itself was very exciting and fun.
I very much enjoyed my work and was very good at it. GP won projects based on my previous work many times, sometimes years later but I received no "official" recognition, just the accolades of my peers.
Management is not empathetic to the employee however MY supervisor was and I enjoyed working under his direction.
Lastly, upper management has no vision.
Interesting work, opportunities to travel, great coworkers.
No training, little room for advancement, extra hours expected, little support.
