    I have been working at GBL full-time

    Pros

    -Great team and employees

    -Always working on something new – not just tech debt and maintenance

    -Feedback for improvement is always heard and often acted upon by management

    -Management has gone the extra mile during Covid-19 to make sure the team is equipped for success (access to office equipment at home, keeping up with social events, providing days in lieu for taking vacation during the early days of the lockdown, moving to half day Fridays so staff can extend the weekend)

    -Half day Fridays!! Can't emphasize enough what a game-changer this is! On Fridays we only work in the morning and the entire afternoon is off. Gives me more time with the family and to run errands before the weekend.

    Cons

    -Timelines on some projects can be challenging

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing, the continued progression of the company (product, process, morale, etc.) over the years is visible. Your routine and frequent checkpoints with everyone in the company, listening to our needs and seeing the changes are what makes GBL a great place to work.

    And please never get rid of half-day Fridays (I know they're here to stay but I can't emphasize enough how positive they are)!

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The first interview was with Human resources, the second interview with the reporting Manager and the third interview was the Techincal team over a few weeks. The last interview which I didn't not make would have been with the CEO.

    They seem to have a diligent hiring process which is why the culture seems strong. The team was transparent on why we didn't proceed and appeared to be a great team.
