Overall, not bad. Upper management - decent

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

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

ProsGood benefits, capable and pleasant co-workers

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

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Could Be Better

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

The company promotes improvement and promotional opportunities.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementThere 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.

I would describe my experience with G&B as informative for the tasks as well as a great team building work place.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsCo-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.

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

Death spiral

Consultant (Former Employee)
Reston, VA (US)

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

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

ConsShort 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 Senior ManagementEliminate the dead wood in the company. Re-brand under the Akimeka subsidiary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad management IMHO

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsCo-workers (usually) make the job bearable

ConsSenior 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 Senior ManagementHiding screwups is worse than making them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company, bad customer

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
