    I have been working at HMS Holdings full-time


    You can learn a lot in IT and Operations You can make a lot of friends. Lenient work hours (e.g. 7AM-3PM or 8AM-4PM or 9AM-5PM w/ lunch at your cube) Reasonable WFH allowances (sick child, important package delivery, home installation, etc.) Occasional free lunches No managers hovering over your cubes Irving office is HQ, so everything (HR/Admin/Payroll/Operations/IT) revolves around it Excellent 401k match


    Pay is about 10% lower than other companies in DFW Some managers are good, some not so good No bonus 3% annual raises Company stock price spikes and drops

    Advice to Management

    I have to take a different approach to reviewing HMS than most of the posters. If you are in the early stages of your career in IT, then you'll gain a lot of experience relatively quickly, and that will help with your overall career goals and planning. With the type of work and developments that go on in the IT group, you can be at a BSA/BA level II in a year and a senior level in 2-4 years, here or somewhere else. It is Agile and since there are always issues to deal with, there is a lot to learn. There are so many defects, upgrades, enhancements and recurring issues, that you experience is valuable on how things should and should not work. The pay is lower than most companies and there are no bonuses as of 2014, but the experience and skill set that you will build will get you to the next level in your career. If you are thinking of your overall IT career in the long term, then HMS is an excellent place to get the experience you need. If you are just looking to get paid market value now, then somewhere else is a better fit. But if you need a foundation or transition with your IT career, then HMS is a good place to start. My advice to senior management is to give PMs and Directors that ability to counter salary offers. Otherwise, retention of IT workers will continue to be a problem.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HMS Holdings in June 2015.


    Been easy overall and very good interviewers who are personable. Went over the position and my background. i did not get all the information so need to ask more questions. They are a growing company so seem to be hiring nationwide. The interviews were right on time so they were punctual. I feel I need another interview to get all my questions answered. I hope the benefits are ok as i read some posts stating they were not so good. It did not seem to matter on the 4 yr degree if you have the background/experience even though it is stated in the job requirements posting.
