    I worked at Gray Matter Systems full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good, and if you're not in the PA area you can work from home. The office in Warrendale is awesome . Theres a gym, cafeteria, and foosball table. The benefits are normal.

    Cons

    The technical work is challenging because often times we're over worked for underbid jobs. Being on the cutting edge of technology sometimes means early adoption which is like shoving a square peg through a circle holpe. Some clients are real rude.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture your growth by promoting from within. You can't have non-technical people lead technical people. If you show faith in your workforce, they'll bend over backwards for you.

    Pros

    Gray Matter is an awesome place to work. The people are amazing, and I look forward to starting work every day. I've met some of the most friendly, kind, and talented people while working here. The company is growing fast, and everyone is on board to do their part to help. Plenty of opportunity for growth. Management is always looking to improve. Work/life balance is great, and management is always looking out... for their employees.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast, and so there's occasionally some growing pains (as you would expect). This really isn't a con, unless you don't like change and are looking to do the bare minimum everyday. Nothing else comes to mind... if there is ever an issue or a reoccurring problem, management always looks for the best solution for the team. Management listens, just make sure you bring it up.

    Advice to Management

    Thumbs up!

    I worked at Gray Matter Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have good prodcuts to sell. If you are sales person and already have LOTS of contact and can add in system, you are the MAN!! Fun loving work environment. Aggressive owners and want to grow.

    Cons

    Most of employess work after hours, weekends but no reward. No one want free ride but they need to share profit with all empoyess not only with sales guys. Horrible and career killing compete agreement you have to sign, which is not good for technical staff. Good for fresh graduates, not for experinced persons.

    Advice to Management

    Be more sincere wtih employess. Make contarct simple so that you could attaract more real talent. It is professional black mailing control staff based on contract if they want to move to other company .

    I worked at Gray Matter Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Immediate vacation time (you'll need it), unlimited sick time (not really), friendly staff, paid travel and expenses for sales, work from home (expect 80 hour work week)

    Cons

    on-boarding is nonexistent, leadership lacks in motivating employees, reviews to bring you down instead of up, annual raises are rare to receive, nepotism is apparent, upper management doesn't practice core values, very expensive health benefits, paid monthly, expect to learn everything yourself there is zero real training happening at this place

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees, get better benefits, reviews should encourage not discourage employees, upper management should lead by example and core values, consider people have families monthly pay is abominable
