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

Pros

Close to home. Most co-workers are willing to help. Some managers who put in their notices continue to help others before they leave.

Cons

Cheap cheap cheap cheap!!!!! This company is CHEAP!

Only the privileged get rewarded or the opportunity to grow. If you're not one of the privileged don't bother taking classes unless it's to get out of HPS because they will not give you the opportunity to "grow". They say they will but it's NOT TRUE!

If you want to change groups and you're qualified for the position you'll have to wait and find out if the manager of that group has a friend they want hired in front of you. Sometimes they won't even post the job, they'll just hire someone new (a friend or relative) for the group.

Technology is OLD. About 15-20 years old. And if it can be done with several hundred lines of code in a batch file then that is great!

They make no effort in keeping employees who turn in their notices. They like to say they're growing and constantly hiring. This is because of everyone who is quitting!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're failing! How many years has it been now that you decided to move in another direction? You're not fooling anyone. When the economy starts to improve you better be prepared for a mass exodus.

    Other colleagues are generally very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Software code base is unwieldy. Very cumbersome development process. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making it a better place to work for IT staff. Improve work-life balance. Introduce programs for continuing education and advancement.

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

    Pros

    Abundant growth potential in the industry. Opportunities are limited only by management's imagination. Senior Management seems to be anticipating significant growth based upon the number of executives.

    Cons

    Management's imagination is limiting opportunities. Consultants are brought in to tell them what other companies are doing, rather than listening to employees' innovative ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop building a management structure for a company 5 to 10 times the size. Too much of the limited amount of money available is being used to pay unnecessary VP salaries.

    On the other hand, before you can grow the customer base you must strengthen the infrastructure to support the customer base you have. When no one can do their jobs because the system is so bogged down by month-end processing, it isn't helping anyone.

    Learn to cut your losses. When an obviously terrible choice is made for a software package, admit it, get rid of it, and move on. Don't continue to pour good money after bad. You can probably better afford to get a more expensive package that works than spending an unknown amount trying to get a poorly designed, poorly written, and poorly chosen package to do what you need.
