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.

No opportunities for advancement and typically no cost of living increases year over year.

Good Salary, Not so Good Benefits
Lead Instructional Designer (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJune 23, 2018
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.

Relaxed and balanced
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIFebruary 26, 2018
As long as you are on top of your work, management allows you to work as you see fit. Good work/life balance. You can usually work from home when sick. You have to use PTO for sick days unless you work from home. Coworkers are friendly and relaxed. Pay is lower than expected and benefits are good but many choose not to use company insurance due to cost and hoops you have to jump through to keep it.
Pros
Good work/life balance, relaxed atmosphere
Cons
Low pay, costly benefits

Nice company to work for
Confidential (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDJanuary 17, 2018
Overall a nice company to work for despite a few challenges that come along with most companies. Work/Life balance was fair. The majority of people were nice and easy to work with. Each division operates like a small business however, has support from corporate. Very diverse in terms of the services that GP provides to it's customers, which was exciting. Fast paced environment and teams run very lean. No clear path for career advancement.
Pros
Business Casual Work Environment
Cons
No advancement opportunities
