  • “I absolutely love working at GYST. The team is extremely communicative, supportive and full of resources to help me be the best assistant I can be. As a long time freelancer, I also appreciate the security provided by GYST in being a W2 employee with the ability to accrue vacation days, sick days, starting a  401k, getting a transit check and having backup helpers at the ready in case of emergency. For a job where you are frequently on your own, GYST makes me feel like part of an unstoppable team.”
