Is being a yes man the only way to get ahead in this company? Why is there not much room here for those who don’t agree to become just another yes-man? I’m not that type and I think it cost me a lot at GF. When I look back, I think I would've ... — read more

Can the SLT stop draining money by giving the stupid hats nobody gives rat’s a-s to wear that even though SLT would like the employees to wear it for free advertising. SLT should pay to deserve the free advertising.
I understand how top dogs could benefit and what an IPO could bring to this company, a lot has been written lately about that, but I don’t know if we, the employees, will benefit from a GF IPO as well? Thoughts? I don't have a good opinion of... — read more

For everyone complaining about pay, just do what most of us do… Nothing! They no pay, we no work!
They’ve made a cute little task force to talk about why we’re mad about our pay, but they’re not going to do anything. They’re just coming around to look concerned, show face, and act like they care. This greedy company is all for show. Answer:... — read more
