ABOUT US & FAQs
Our leadership team is 'cognitively optimized.'
There IS a secret to a truly optimal team – to provide truly complete understanding for your business. It involves not just uniquely-smart people, but a complementary team that spans the continuum from a deductive, analytical thinking style, to the inductive, exploratory orientation (assessed via our own neuropsych thinking style assessment completed by each Alpha-Diver team member). We’ve applied this secret to build an optimal set of perspectives that work directly on every project we handle.

What is home time like with GP?
Home time depends on where you live - if you are from the Chicagoland area, you can be home more often than if you were from farther away. If you live elsewhere, there is no “cookie cutter” approach to home time – we do everything we can and work with you to make sure you get the most time possible. Please call our recruiting team at (800)work4gp to get information about home time for your specific situation.
