    I worked at EDSI full-time

    Pros

    EDSI's education benefits are better than most companies I have worked for. For the group I worked with, there were weekly meetings where information was shared freely. Good communications.

    Cons

    My opinion, EDSI's health care benefits were marginal compared to other companies. They were expensive, high deductibles, and many on the health services that I went to the Doctor for were not covered, at all.

    Pros

    You will meet some really good people who work in this organization and will be expose to several other contracting agencies, as well as government agancies.

    Cons

    No sense of leadership, mangement often keeps employes in the dark when it comes to important information and training. There is no room for growth personally or professionally, several complains from the employess are more than not ignored, or go on with no resolution this includes serious harrasment complaints. When employess seek help regarding procedures you will get condensending replies and your questions will go unanswer.When other employess leave their former duties are passed down to other employess (sometimes you will have one person doing 3 other people's jobs plus thier own) without any additional compesation, this is in addition to their salay ranges posted in this site, I'm a program analyst and i make well under 48,000 per year so i don't know where they got their range for program analyst to be 59k, is around 22.00 per hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about your employees, they are the ones who got you where you are today. Offer training so the employees are not going into projects blinded and with no sense of direction in front of the customer. Stop expecting your employess to be loyal and be outstanding at their jobs without the necessary tools to suceed from a company.

    Pros

    Very likeable and intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    Has a tough budget to meet and due to govt contractor cutbacks, they do not have the manpower to meet their production requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't oversell your capabilities. Keep it simple and continue to do outstanding work.
