Great leader and truly believed on the customer

Finance (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Perot Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStrong leadership, disciplined, didn't panic as many do today

ConsSometimes too conservative, executives did little to develop and reward staff, those in the Ivory Tower did very well when Dell purchased them, the rest watched their jobs go to India

Advice to Senior ManagementHold the course, believe in the product, people and processes. Ignore the stock market

Was a good company....once, then they sold to Dell.

Program Analyst (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Perot Systems full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLoved woking for the Navy in DC.

ConsEmployees not given merit for experience, if you had a degree and new out of college...you were pushed to the top. Those who worked there over 5 years and no degree were pushed aside and ignored. Glad I got out when I did, the Supv. I had got a taste of his own medicine. He was removed from his Project Management position, replaced by a female. What goes around, comes around I say.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsWork life balance is great. We have a world class gym on site. The opportunities for various projects which helps one gain experience is great.

ConsThe salary raises is not that constant and great. Perot pays lower than most of its competitors. Their benefits are great though.

It was a great place

Desktop Support Specialist (Former Employee)
Boise, ID

I worked at Perot Systems

ProsI worked as a desktop support for Perot to a local company. I believe my wages were fair and my boss was great.

ConsI felt that there was zero chance of COL raises or even raises due to performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementCOL raises are always nice. You can't keep paying people the same amount even after working there for a while and providing excellent work. That just makes people leave.

Overall a great company

Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Perot Systems

ProsI feel the career paths are not well defined at Perot but the opportunities exist if you are looking for them. The company is growing and creating lots of new roles as it evolves. Overall a great place to work with much better benefits after the Dell acquisition.

ConsNot a lot of transparency on job titles and upper management decision making.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall a good job by management. Sometimes I feel that we push a lot of work offshore even when it doesn't make sense.

Pros- Work/Live balance

Advice to Senior ManagementThe large pool of commodity MCSE-type developers should be complemented with a strong build-up of experts from the Open Source community to stay competitive in the DC space.
