    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was paid weekly. I was fairly compenated for my position considering it was a private social service job. It would be a good first job for someone coming right out of college.

    Cons

    Maximus Inc initially offers the majority of their employess a temp to permanent position. You are actually staffed through contemporary staffing solutions, a service they pay to obtain new employees. After working with them for almost 2 yearswith the promise of becoming permanent numerous times, it became aparent that they do not turn over their staff permanently. You remain as a temp indefinitely with limited benefits and job security which is why I had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously consider making you loyal and hard working employess permanent to avoid high turn over rates in many of your positions.

    I have been working at MAXIMUS full-time

    Pros

    Laid back
    Easy to succeed if you care and have a positive attitude towards challenges.

    Cons

    Very high staff expectations, mostly due to executive management pushing low staff levels to save money or low-balling contract proposals which leads to unrealistic budgets.
    Very small company that recently expanded exponentially in the last few years. On the IT side of things, upper management is used to being a small company and runs things as such, which doesn't translate well for standardization, best practices, or IT resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lessen our margins to increase our reputation..its getting pretty bad in a lot of places, largely due to unrealistic budgets.

    Maximus is a great company but the pay is horrible, unless you're in management.

    Pros

    The best thing about this job was I got to work remotely.

    Cons

    Being benched, not having enough work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your projects more wisely. There seemed to be a disconnect between managers and their people. Communication was lacking in most cases.
