  1.  

    Disorganized, and over works their employees.

    I have been working at Client Network Services

    Pros

    Good location, that's about it.

    Cons

    Highly disorganized, standards and expectations are always changing with very little communication from management and between departments. Management expects you to take your work home every night. Employees work 10-15 hours per day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees. Have more transparency and allow your employees to have a life outside the office.

    I worked at Client Network Services as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits including 100% paid health insurance and discounted dental and vision

    Cons

    Because of the 100% company paid health insurance, the salaries are much lower than average for the immediate area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salaries and share the cost of the health insurance

    Favoritism, intimidation, and lies.

    I worked at Client Network Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you can get on their good side it can be a real boon since they will give you a lot of responsibility and promotions.

    Cons

    Senior managers tend to do whatever the head of the office says, even if unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using intimidation and favoritism to make policies and promotions.

    Pros

    you have a job.. thats all.

    Cons

    Highly unstructured. Unprofessional.. and managers are irresponsible. They have no idea what is going on in the project.. your work depends on your immediate contact or supervisor who could be a junior programer who know nothing about managing and delegating work. Biased towards male workers.

    Managers are arrogant. Talk only with other managers.They walk past you even after you greet them.

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.. sorry :(

    Cons

    It was good before but talented resources are leaving and thereby leaving company with crappy developers and managers.
    Brings new resources to team and management will make them Team Leads, Managers etc without having proper business,technical knowledge on assigned areas.
    Office Politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the employees happy, they play key role in any organization's success.

    I worked at Client Network Services

    Pros

    Mid size company with small size focus. Very MMIS customer focussed.

    Cons

    Too narrow focus.
    Will not take a stand if customer is wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow growth of the people from outside. The Management is too crowded with people who have no outside CNSI experience.

    Pros

    They believe in socializing among themselves.

    Cons

    Company caters to east Indians because they request rock-bottom salaries, they are controlled with Visas and do not hear, speak or do no evil. They hire only white management to shield their India and Pakistan descent to get Federal contracts. They do not promote blacks unless they are in trouble with EEOC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open culturally.
