    I worked at Cpsi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great company to get your foot in the door, they have a nice family like work environment. Enjoyed my time there

    Cons

    Horrible pay! If you are ambitious and smart then you will not last long here because the company refuses to pay a competitive salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your smart employees from leaving by giving them a better pay and showing them the respect that they deserved.

    Pros

    This is fun place to work. Things change often enough to keep it fresh and new. Teams are taken to lunch once a quarter.

    Cons

    They expect you to live on the bare minimum. They pay in absolute peanuts. Don't look for that to change unless you can live on it for at least five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees.

    I worked at Cpsi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance, and profit sharing after 3yrs

    Cons

    The company views the employees as disposable. Work until they get burned out and hire a new crop. Travel Sunday through Friday. Yes, 6 days a week. They pay Chinese overtime which basically amounts to under $4.00 an hour.
    Management does not write anything down as far as work rules so they won't legally be bound to anything.
    The company views mgrs as Gods and you have no recourse if your mgr does not like you.
    One word needed to make CPSI a good place to work..... Union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in your employees shoes and work Sunday through Friday for weeks on end Then pay yourself $4.00 an hour for the 25 to 30 extra hours you work over 40.

    Pros

    Great starter job when first out of college. Great resume builder to enter the competitive industry.

    Cons

    There is a lot of nepotism, being that it's a small town. This means you may be overlooked and someone who knows someone higher up given the promotion instead. Company is surrounded by multiple colleges so this keeps the salaries very low comparable to industry averages, this keeps the turnover rate very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a salary analysis of the industry and pay your people something comparable instead of letting those that you've invested time in go off to greener pastures.

    Worst job I've ever had

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cpsi

    Pros

    I honestly can not think of a single thing that I liked while I worked there.

    Cons

    Micro management. Unattainable work loads. We had mandatory overtime, 8 hrs every Saturday, for over 6 months. Micro management beyond belief. There is no advancement. There is no management other then direct manager and if they are corrupt as in my case there is nothing to be done about it. They sent an ax man from their head quarters to fire everyone and shut us down. By the time I left over 60% of the office had been fired

    I have been working at Cpsi full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits at low cost with good health care options including gym membership discount, weight watchers, on-site clinic. Lenient with personal schedules.

    Cons

    Legacy software will drive you insane. Their application of Java and other current software tools are so limited you are almost lying by putting them on your resume. I would recommend anyone to continue to educate themselves with industrial standards instead of thinking that you can take the "CP way" anywhere else. You would be in big trouble. Since there isn't much to take from the job you will either have to leave as soon as you can find a better job or decide on being there for life. There is no gray area - sinking yourself 10 years here with a load of illogical and bad practices will cause detrimental harm to your career when you leave. Not only is personal development limited but so is the compensation. Salaries are very low until about 3 years when you qualify for profit sharing, then you will finally get close to market value. Also, the working environment daily is very boring and anti-social. Overall its really miserable!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more. Get rid of cobol.

    I worked at Cpsi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CPSI is a responsibly run public company that consistently turns a profit and pays dividends and profit sharing bonuses. The culture is friendly and customer oriented. They've never performed mass layoffs.

    Cons

    One key to CPSI's success is cost management. Salaries are low and perks are few. The work is usually quite tedious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job, guys.
