Appreciate the flexibility employees had to manage appointments and work without utilizing vacation.

The last several years was difficult as they were preparing to off-shore jobs and downsize.

Work Experience with Guardian.
Technology Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 5, 2017
I worked for Guardian since May of 2010. Its a tremendous opportunity to work with such a client for long duration.

I appreciate Guardian work culture and the client have always been supportive.

At times, it has been slightly tough due tough deadlines, but we have managed to deliver projects on time.

Thanks.

A Productive and fun place to work
Regional Sales Support Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 30, 2017
Appropriately staffed in all functional areas. There was always a feeling that management considered and provided appropriate tools and training to develop staff menbers for the respective roles in which they performed and als ensured that goals were attainable and expectations were realistic. This allowed emplyees the confidence that management cared and thus a place to want to work. Additionally, morale was always high as management also ensured that there was time away from the job site, for employees to participate in annual compnay wide picnic and special holiday events at christmas.
Pros
Company Subidized lunches

not job security and low compensation
Intake Analyst (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAJanuary 16, 2017
the salary is very slow and there is no job security. mandatory overtime during most of the year. the job itself provides some kind of freedom, however they keep most employees as temps and they end their assignment suddenly without previous notice.

Leadership gives you absolutely NO GUIDANCE or DIRECTION. They just throw you in, give you a laptop, and leave you to figure it all out on your own. It felt very hostile.
Pros
Work from home on Fridays.
Cons
No team spirit!
