Overall good, but could be better

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood people at more senior level

ConsJamis Software outdated. Running and posting revenue every two weeks instead of every week as in Deltek Costpoint does not catch potential financial problems before month close.

Sub accrual process is the worst I have seen. Wastes countless employees time (two weeks out of month) where they could devote to better budgeting and working the financial health of a program.

No work/life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement new software to run revenue and post financials weekly. You can also have time tickets imported daily to run revenue on if you want to go the distance. But weekly at worst.

Immediately do away with your sub accrual process! Go light, yet accurate with backup pages. or wait extra few days for invoice to come in. You are wasting excessive time and man hours on a process that is no more accurate. Who is paying for all those hours? Also, is not serving company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
