      Loved GP

      Aug 26, 2020 - City Coordinator

      Pros

      Working at GP was empowering and built my confidence. There was a very inclusive culture, which created an enjoyable work environment. I grew a lot as a communicator, a leader, an activist, and a teammate working for GP.

      Cons

      Working in a canvassing office was stressful because the quotas were pretty harsh: $150 in monthly donations every week, if you miss your quota once you go on review, if you miss it again you lose your job. The stakes were pretty high.

      Must be tolerant of poor management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good holidays - (Mostly) Relaxed work environment - Interesting and varied work for some

      Cons

      - Very poor management - Significant nepotism for senior positions but strong preference for bringing in skills elsewhere rather than developing in-house talent/retaining institutional knowledge. - Negligible oversight of those in senior positions that leads to overly aggressive managers remaining in their positions.
