    I worked at Guidance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Guidance is the people. The leadership of the company care about the people and make decisions to make sure that each employee can have a good work/life balance, even though the projects are some times very stressful and complex. Each time that I felt overwhelmed, there was someone that I could raise the issue to and get some help.
    My contributions to better the organization were accepted and integrated into the processes which was really cool to see.

    Cons

    Agency work is often stressful, and it’s not the same as just working for a single company. This type of work is not for everyone, but if you understand that Agency life is what it is, and you are really working for many companies via Guidance, then it’s much easier to understand choices that are made by Guidance leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate each team success more, would’ve been fun to have more team building experiences after each successful contract close.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marina del Rey, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Guidance (Marina del Rey, CA (US)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interview and vetting process is quite rigorous to ensure the hire is a good fit. HR will screen candidates by phone, then have a follow up phone interview with another senior staff member. Following phone interviews, candidates are asked to come onsite for a number of in- person interviews for both work experience and cultural fit. Final steps include an online assessment and meeting with company owners.
