How are the career development opportunities at Guidepoint?

Pros

The clients you work with are smart, and there are genuinely talented people that work there.

Cons

There are no discernible perks or career development opportunities. Extreme micromanagement and no growth mindset to be found. The pay is not competitive or worth it for how much you will be expected to work. Lackluster office, disorganized management, and insufficient training. The attrition rate is terrible and nothing is done to address this. The work is overwhelmingly mundane and unfulfilling, and most of the people eat lunch at their desks. Not a healthy long term job. Upper management views employees as robots/ numbers, not complex people who have the ability to contribute to and improve the company culture.

Advice to Management

If you want to retain talent, you have to give people a reason to want to work for you. Believe it or not, people are aware of how valuable they are and it is a job seeker's market. Offer perks and mentorship opportunities, and stop treating your employees with a complete lack of trust.

What is the feeling of job security at Guidepoint?

Pros

Seems like the last post was made by HR. The only positive is the work colleagues and the young team.

Cons

People leave Guidepoint every month because there are no opportunities. The only skills that people learn there is how to Spam people on Linkedin. Salary is really low for people with masters. If people get a good job after being at Guidepoint it is because they did study something good and did not stay longer at Guidepoint.

Advice to Management

Pay for the kind of people you want to hire. And do not take advantage of foreigners.

How are senior leaders perceived at Guidepoint?

Pros

Relatively young work culture and regular company parties (for work successes, summer, holidays etc). If you are open and friendly, you can meet some great people. Great place to figure out what you REALLY want to do.

Cons

Upper management can really con you. Be careful whom you trust with your personal and career goals. The CEO is very obviously numbers driven and doesn't seem to care about the attention and details that go into the work. If he does, the rest of the teams don't know/sense that. The office was very crowded by the time I left (although I hear they are moving)

Advice to Management

Parties and free beer on Fridays don't mean you care. Fair wages and effective leaders will keep people there longer than free alcohol will.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Guidepoint?

Pros

Can't think of any pros.

Cons

Lack of communication and understanding of topics. They pair consultants with companies without really knowing what they want and then don't pay you for it. Also, they say you don't have to give proprietary information but if you don't, you are basically "disposed of", since your ethical values are too much for them. Do not work for this company.
