    Pros

    Flextime
    Open-door policy
    Decent pay and benefits, but still on the cheap side.
    Low stress, unless you want to work hard and take on more responsibility, then they will give you more opportunities and choices.

    Cons

    Difficult to become a project manager without having been here for 20-25 years. Most projects of decent size are given to people who have been here at least 20-25 years. Most qualified manager types are instead reduced to designated task leaders and restricted from managing budgets or staff. Difficult to transfer to another job and have enough qualifications to be hired as a project manager because IMS shelters their employees from some critical responsibilities.
    Poor support for additional certifications and education.
    Secret bonuses for long-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sheltering good employees. Let them grow instead of restricting their experience so you can continue to pay them low salaries while reducing turnover. Stop playing both sides and pretending to support the employee while protecting the business in every regard behind the scenes.

    I have been working at Information Management Services

    Pros

    flexible work hours; ability to work remotely; job stability since contracts are with the government; hourly pay instead of annual salary

    Cons

    management plays favorites; annual bonuses are $25 gift cards to all while some managers and favorites get secret bonuses; lack of communication and information sharing outside of different project groups; lack of recognition for good efforts but mistakes are blown out of proportion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    benefits package needs to be improved: need a 401k or similar plan where employees can contribute to their retirement, education assistance should be improved, vacation time should be improved and scaling should be adjusted; listen to all of your employees and don't fear criticism; encourage training and continued improvement for all employees
