Pros

HMS promotes from within and deals honestly with its associates. The company went through a reorganization in the last year and the development, product direction, and sales teams are focused and hit their targets for 2012 and will likely do the same in 2013. It is a good place to work. Pizza Friday is offered on a quarterly basis pending target achievements. Spot bonuses and monthly employee appreciation is acknowledged. Company is open with employees about status of the company, goal attainment, and ways to help the team reach the goals. Work/Life flexibility is important to the company. Quarterly town halls clearly show employees where we stand in terms of targets and attainment so you always know how the company is doing. Conservative in their revenue estimations, so you're unlikely to get a false sense of company performance.

Cons

Small, but growing company. Growing pains are good pains, but sometimes it is bad in the sense that workload is sometimes intense. However, they are good at seeing the workbalance issues and addressing them. Multiple positions need to be filled to help even the workload for each of the teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the lines of communication open as you have been.

    Pros

    The pay was Decent and so was the health plan.

    Cons

    Work Culture, Peers, Back Stabbing, Cut Throat. The company is ripe with arrogance and ignorance. No training what so ever, job responsibility and what was expected changed 5 times in one year. Completely different than what they lead me to believe in my interview. No one can be trusted. No one there had / has people skills. They are all introverted strange people... Stay far, far away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about actually training employees, and re-assessing middle management

    Pros

    Great work life balance with flexibility. You can show up a little late, leave a little early, and as long as you keep your head down you are golden. They also have summer hours where you can leave at 3 Fridays, and holiday hours where the day before a holiday the office will close between 1 and 3 (as long as HR is in to let you know -- HR seems to work about 30 hours a week)

    Senior management changes priorities so often that you can really get away with doing next to nothing, or the bare minimum. There are some employees that are 'go getters' who will get the most difficult tasks assigned to them. The rest can get away with overestimating tasks then slacking off.

    You do have the opportunity to learn, which is often encouraged. It's small enough that you can go and talk to sales, upper management, developers, and project managers, who are all very approachable.

    Cons

    The company was innovative and growing until the founders left in 2008. Since then, there has been next to no innovation, just rebranding the same technology that saw it's growth the first few years of the company. Practically every attempt to create a new product was a horrible failure.

    Once you get on the bad side of management, you're done. The good thing is that it typically takes them a few months to lay you off, which gives you enough time to job hunt.

    It always seemed that there was a revolving door of talent, almost like people would join the company then wait for their non-compete to end.

    Perks are always slowly taken away, and you can almost forget about bonuses, they won't be making yearly goals any time soon. 'Tuition reimbursement' is only $1000 a year, which is not impressive.
