    I have been working at GDS Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Gds's seasoned, thoughtful leadership team varies with talent across the board. The team is also endlessly humble, responsible, authentic, and the absolute best cheerleaders to the entire organization. You'll regularly see the C-Suite calling out employees for the great work that they do.

    -Balancing agility during the pandemic and setting the business and employees up for long-term success wether that be WFH or in office. We have constant support, guidance and empathy.

    -GDS has given me the opportunity for both lateral and upward career development. It really is inspiring to be exposed to decison maker educational sessions, content and conversations.

    Cons

    May have to work late/from home sometimes to reach goals, but that is balanced with the ability to work from home when YOU need to, holidays and 2 full weeks off for holiday break; its a fair trade. Once you build pipeline you maintain.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make core operating principles central to decision-making.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GDS Group.

    Interview

    Everything started out really great. There were 2 interviews total and I was notified promptly at the beginning of each week when and who I would be interviewed by. The interviews themselves were honestly great conversations. I had done my research, reached out to current employees and they seemed to appreciate my curiosity. It wasn't until the end of the interview process that everything fell apart. I was contacted by HR early Monday morning (3 weeks total from initial interview) congratulating me on being offered the job. I then hopped on a call to discuss the start date and salary requirements, Their salary offer was a bit low and I countered $5,000 over. HR said they would get back to me and they never did. Two emails to HR, one email to the hiring manager, one phone call and 3.5 weeks later (note: no one responded until I called) I was notified that the position was no longer available and the company had rescinded the offer. There wasn't an explanation-- I'm confused if it was personal or they just simply overhired. I'm a very reasonable and understanding person but to leave a potential employee in the dark for 3.5 weeks to then rescind an offer without any explanation is unacceptable. I spoke to numerous people about this and no one had heard of this happening. I would not recommend this company by any means. I don't feel they respect your time or value your worth.
