I have been working at Sterling Infosystems full-time (More than 3 years)
General consensus, at least in the IT/IS department, is that there are a lot of quality people to work with. In fact, the co-workers are the most positive aspect of the job. Work hours are generally flexible, which is a major plus.
Unfortunately the upper management at Sterling treats the company like their personal get rich scheme. The high paying VP and Director jobs are gifted to the president's friends and their friends. We watched a VP that was given no budget to fix anything get canned after only 9 months and replaced by the newly installed president's former co-worker. Now the new VP magically gets the money for all the things the first VP asked for. I suppose the insulting part is that the executives genuinely don't think we are capable of discerning such events. The downside to all this, from a boots on the ground perspective, is that there is little room for major advancement. I've seen "promotions" at Sterling that involve title changes, increased responsibility and 0 to 2% pay increases. Another down side is that, other than your base salary, there are very few financial incentives. Equity in the company? Nope. Bonuses? Sure, just don't expect to ever see the full "maximum" percentage listed in your employment contract. The 401K match is sub par. Vacation time and holiday schedule is average. That being said, if you can accept the company for what it is - a money train for the upper crust - and be content with an ok salary and a solid entry on your resume, it's really not that bad. Manage your expectations, keep perspective, work your 1-3 years and move on.
