    Pros

    Good place to learn the business. Decent room for career growth at the company if you work to stand out to managers. A leader in public healthcare innovation at the moment. Paid time off benefits aren't bad. Bonuses can be fairly good. Additional perks in terms of office parties and outings.

    Cons

    Severe lack of training. Higher management often commits to contracts and schedules that are not realistic in terms of time and resources and workers lower on the totem pole are expected to carry more of a load than they should. Higher-ups tend to rush and delegate while not addressing problem areas. The same managers are continually rewarded for the work of their teams. Management forces socialization a bit much. 401(k) portfolio and company matching could be better. The offered healthcare insurance provider can be difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the people doing the work. Be more realistic when committing to additional projects.

    LOTS of Indian developers - hope you can handle accents. Poorly defined SDLC, cumbersome design methodology. Tends to get into friction with state clients.

    I have been working at Client Network Services

    Pros

    Working as a contractor for another entity through CNSI is ok, but mainly because the entity I actually do work for is pretty decent. Basic health insurance is "free" with enhanced versions available.

    Cons

    Rarely hear from them. Slow on solving issues. 401K has a decent match, but its only put into your account once a year? You get 3 weeks vacation right from the start, but that's also your sick days. Relocation assistance is very minimal. Support for their remote employees is minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more responsive to employees in the field. Make the benefits you give not simply "adequate", but awesome. 401K money is earned, paying out the match only once a year is cheating out your employees, pay it out with each paycheck. That way our money can maximize its earnings throughout the year.
