Flexibility....... but don't count on it. You might be told remote work is an option, but every year or so they crack down on it and don't allow it. Almost everyone in the company had to return their home docking stations this year.
-Pay is horrible. They try to get away with giving you a tiny, TINY raise, saying they 'can't' give you more, but they're lying because the favorites get what they want. -Nepotism is REAL. Family members of management working at Gilsbar, getting raises and promotions when they do NOTHING for the company. -Management is extremely shady. They move people around with no notice, make changes the subject matter experts strongly discourage, and expect way too much of employees. -Perfection is expected, but hard work is not recognized. You will be pushed to your absolute limit, and then some. Hence why the majority of my department quit around the same time. -Due to the toxic environment and tough expectations, workers are quick to throw others under the bus. Teamwork is non-existant. -Management does nothing to keep good employees. Turnover is high, and they have made no changes because they think the job is transferable to any employee and knowledge/experience does not matter. -Supervisors are moved around often and do not understand the job they are managing. AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I cried almost daily, worked a lot of overtime, and tried my hardest to make things better but eventually realized it would never work. There are better options in the area!8

Pay is decent. Work/life balance is pretty good. Remote work opportunities. Annual wellness labs are free to employees/spouses
Your experience depends on what department you're in. H&L is great. PL management is a mess and known to target people they don't like. Management is clique-y. Insurance premiums are cheap, but deductible is high.

A great work environment because of the fellow employees despite poor management.
Poor management. Very little pay. No upward mobility.4

A great many of the people – the vast majority of them – are really fantastic people. Truly nice, genuine people who you look forward to seeing every day. They have this magic there of attracting that kind of person. Mostly. Wellness benefits were top-notch.
THE PAY: It’s a strange, wonderful company with one glaring downside: the pay is horrible. Apparently when conducting salary research through a local third party, the employer chooses to arbitrarily exclude the City of New Orleans from the local job market area (which is totally absurd). Obviously, this decision greatly depresses the salary results they are seeing, because they are only looking at places like Covington, Mandeville, Slidell, maybe Bogalusa, etc., where they have no competitors anyway, and this approach ignores a very large southern city and financial center of the state where salaries are vastly higher for comparable roles. I don’t mean $10,000 higher either – but easily double the salary, sometimes triple, just a half-hour away across the bridge. WORKLOAD, EXPECTATIONS, SKILL SET: The work done was like someone with a master’s degree would do, but the pay was about one-fifth of what such a person with such a degree would actually make in this area (which is, like it or not, “The New Orleans area”). Pay was so low that many employees have to go on government benefits just to make ends meet. It is very common for a sales person to come running over at 4:50pm and make a demand for work to be done and ready for early the next morning (and, the general consensus is that you had better get it done). Again, if the pay was triple, that might be reasonable. This severely impacted work-life balance on several instances, but only a few times a year. TYRANNY: Although most of their people were great, unfortunately this is very nearly ruined by the presence of a handful of real jerks, some of whom have risen to high levels and make work life miserable for those they can put under their thumbs. The place would really benefit from listening to employees at all levels, and from implementing and enforcing a “No A-holes Policy.” You have some in high management who are extremely great at what they do, and manage to remain some of the nicest people you'll ever meet - and then one or two doors away, you have a person or two who is a nightmare to work with. JOB SECURITY: They go through cycles. If business is good, they hire more people. If they have a bad year, they restructure and lay off or fire tons of people. It never felt stable and always seemed like you could lose your position if the salespeople (in another department) didn't make their quota.

Good Benefits. Decent start pay. Great Wellness program. Nice enviroment.
Cubicles too small not enough space. Poor Mangement skills. Very high turnover rate. Expectations are not realistic

Awesome wellness program. Friendly coworkers
Management doesn't treat everyone the same. Unorganized. Needs better communication within departments. Not enough pay.4

Pay is good for what I do. ($13 an hour to sit at a desk, research potential leads, solicit every now and then, rinse and repeat.)
Can be very boring and repetitive. No opportunity to move up, or out, of my position.2

Flexible schedule allows for time to be made up instead of using PTO. Majority of the time a friendly atmosphere.
Health Insurance and Pay. Training and inability to retain good leaders/supervisors. Need more focus on proactive responses instead reactive responses.
- 2.028 Sept 2017UnderwriterCurrent Employee, more than 5 years
Work is easy to complete. Staff is reasonably friendly. Remote work option is nice.
Extremely low pay when compared nationally and very low when compared to local market. Constant turnover. People switch positions constantly. Overqualified people in low jobs and inexperienced people in management positions. Every one is terrified about achieving metrics and of being fired on a whim. Health care is garbage. High deductible HSA.
