Company reviews
"Competitive"
Current EmployeeAccounts Receivable Manager
Challenging but very rewarding! Working in accounting can be boring, but not here ... always fresh and new every day. I love my role at Gongos and am proud to work there!
Pros:

"Great place to start"
Current Employee
This is a great place to work when you're fresh out of university and are looking for experience to pad your resume. They try to do that "cool" culture where there is ping pong and a pool table for use, but everyone is always too busy to use them. They offer flex time, but no one ever takes it; because each team does it differently and no one really knows how its supposed to work. Expect to put in 45+ hours every week for pay that is under the normal threshold.
Pros:
Cons:

"Wonderful culture, meaninful work, and great clients."
Current EmployeeResearch Manager
Gongos fosters a great work environment. Here, employees are encouraged to pursue their passion areas and grow with the company!
