    I worked at Perot Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The environment was fairly laid back and the team I got to work with were brilliant. I learned a lot in this job just by having smart people around me.

    Cons

    Company values changed from ensuring high quality service to more bottom line oriented
    Compensation was fair but review structure and upward mobility seemed nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what made the company a great place at one point in time. By focusing on bottom line only you will lose out on clients.
