    The building was less then expected. Air would always go down during the heat of the year.

    Keep it up.

    I worked at G&B Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, capable and pleasant co-workers

    Cons

    I encountered a rather inexperienced, unprofessional,inept supervisor/Project manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you've got an employee providing good service and exceptional value to a client as well as good income to the company, do something to defend and support them in the face of bungling rookie supervisors within your company and on the clients' side.

    I have been working at G&B Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The environment is somewhat relaxed and seems to be overall supportive from the management.

    The company promotes improvement and promotional opportunities.

    Cons

    There is no one looking out for the employee but the employee. The company was a lot better years ago and has continued to lack employee support.

    Although the company seems to support you in excelling, they somehow hold you back from doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a lot more support of your employees to excel and be able to get a better position within the company or as a government employee.

    There should be more support in general since there is always someone asking for employees to back the company.

  6.  

    I have been working at G&B Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers have been very helpful to work with and making sure that all of the work is completed. Managers are not micro-managing which is good for employee morale.

    Cons

    There is sometimes not enough communication from management. There has been more communication lately which is good and it shows that they're making a better effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's always room for growth. Ensure that there is communication with employees. Work with us and we will work with you.

    I worked at G&B Solutions as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Used to be a great company with a solid brand and talented people working there.

    Cons

    Short changes the customer and gouges the contractors. Company is in a death spiral. Few deals coming and little value provided in the fieldl. More concerned about nickel and diming folks than providing good value and growing the business. Serious ethical issues!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the dead wood in the company. Re-brand under the Akimeka subsidiary.

    I worked at G&B Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers (usually) make the job bearable

    Cons

    Senior Management is somewhat .. sociopathic..
    Underpaid, Management will ask you to work every weekend with no compensation; then after requesting that you do the necessary things for the contract - will fire you when the procedure documentation they provided you is incorrect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiding screwups is worse than making them.

    Pros

    G&B Solutions is a great company that does mostly government contracting, i.e. you work for G&B and G&B works for the federal government

    Cons

    Working for G&B Solutions was great, but working for the federal government was not great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
