Current Employee - IT Department in Tampa, FL
Current Employee - IT Department in Tampa, FL

I have been working at HPS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Hard working people and most are helpful. There are still a few scattered good, trustworthy managers there but they are leaving as are the quality employees.

Cons

They will go back to a rejected idea after about two years and expect the person who had the idea to work OT on that idea. Regular hours AND OT are still reserved to putting out fires of what management decided to use instead of listening to that idea two years prior. If the idea was designed to use .Net, however, you'll have to somehow do it in Java or some other technology the company won't have to pay for.

Talent is leaving and they're bringing in new talent which is why they're hiring so much.

There is one team lead who will literally scream at her subordinates and can be heard by other departments yet nothing is done about her. This is a real moral killer in a company where moral is already low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Is advice really helpful if they don't listen? Instead of rejecting ideas, make the person think you actually value them as an employee and at least pretend to be interested and throw them some kind of bone to make them feel that you're loyal. But I guess that's kind of hard when you're too cheap.

    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.
