Do not work here
Senior Learning Specialist (Former Employee) –  Guilford, CTOctober 9, 2018
This is the worst company you could ever work for. If you like poor management, no career advancement, and low wages then I guess this could be for you. Also, they lie!
Pros
There are no pros
Cons
Pretty much everything

Old and dieing company
Director of Government Operations (Current Employee) –  Exeter, NHOctober 1, 2018
This company can't get out of its way of it's history. Most of the work is done remotely and there is very little true ownership or bias for action by many of the employees. No learning plan. No development plan. Promises unkept.
Pros
Very few
Cons
Company culture

Could be fun depending on your department

Pros
Work from home

Nice place to work, but, no employee loyalty
Dir. of Performance Consulting & Lrn Pgm Design (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIJuly 30, 2018
19 year with the company. They released me for no reason. Advancement is slow. The company acquired several smaller companies and often promoted the new management staff instead of promoting long standing employees who were much more qualified for leadership roles.

Want to feel underappreciated, disengaged, and stuck?
Senior Instructional Designer (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, INJuly 27, 2018
No acknowledgement other than your pay check
No professional development opportunities or support
No opportunities for advancement
Carrots will be dangled in front of you to motivate you to work really hard despite total business dysfunction and continual frustration. Not only do you not get the carrot, you get hit over the head with it and told you were never asked to go for it.
Pros
Work-life balance and peers
Cons
Career death

GP is a a wonderful employer who values their employees and rewards their sucess
CURRICULUM SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Dearborn, MIJuly 17, 2018
GP managers are very supportive and keep in touch regularly to give me feedback and see if I have questions. I can't speak to details of workplace culture, etc. as I worked onsite for one of their customers, Ford Motor Company Global Training & Development.

Good Salary, Not so Good Benefits

Benefits are lacking as there is very little paid time off. Upper management has a disconnect with staff. Raises are insignificant even if you are an overachiever.
Pros
Good Salary
Cons
Poor work / life balance at times, benefits could be better, raises are small and infrequent

Limited opportunities but good work/home balance
Senior Training Specialist (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDMarch 15, 2018
I was brought on as a GP employee to work solely on one account. After repeated years on the job requesting to be cross trained to other accounts, I discouraged by my request not being allowed. My initial manager was awesome but replacement upon retirement was not so much. Great work/life balance. Great HR representative.
