Big growth plans and expectations before being ready for it
Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 26 March 2019
This is the classic example of someone looking to run 100 mts. in under 10 seconds before preparing for it. The company started as a spin-off by a conglomerate of several disjointed business segments and tried to grow at a speed never seen by any of the business segments without having and building the foundation for that kind of growth.
Fun work place very easy to move up in the company. They had a ping pong table in the break r

Gcp was a great job with great benefits. Everything was good about Gcp it was close to where I live. Working at Gcp taught me a lot of things that I needed to know to move forward in the company. I started working there when I was 19 going on 20.
They often had gift card giveaways and new opportunities.
CST Operator (Former Employee) – Calhoun, GA – 8 April 2018
Management was never fully straight forward with plans. Turnover for the job was the highest I have ever seen. Expected to cover for constant short handed employees even in other departments and positions we were not paid for.

Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 20 December 2017

Worker (Current Employee) – Google – 1 August 2017
This company relies on a revolving door of contract work. They dangle a "temp to hire" carrot, but never offer it. They let you go after six months even after eluding to a future offer only to pretend it was never offered. Then they add replacement contractors.
