Approves of CEO

Pros

Lots of opportunity for advancement, company prefers to promote from within. HR is a class act - everything there is run like clockwork, with lots of detail with regards to benefits, etc... 401K matches @ 4%, immediate vesting. Short and long term disability fully paid by company, as is $50K in life insurance. Even medical HMO is fully paid for employee only. Company has annual holiday party, annual picnic, regular staff briefings, and free lunch every month!

Cons

Medical for family coverage is quite expensive. No cost of living raises. No bonuses. Annual performance raises are paltry.

Advice to Management

Well run company!

    Pros

    IT Solutions, LLC is in the Federal Government contracting business. Right now it has several IT contracts with various federal agencies around the District, Virginia and Maryland. Most of the contracts are on site with the agency they support (ie if the contract is with the CIA, then IT Solutions, LLC supplies the employees who work at the CIA) and involve progressively more complex Tiered technical support which makes the best reason to work for IT Solutions--the internal growth potential. I have to give the company credit for claiming to promote from within and then ACTUALLY promoting from within. A person starts out as a Tier I support analyst (on the phones) and works that job for 6 months and then applies for Tier 2 (deskside support) and so on. There is no limit to the growth potential with this company if you can suck everything else up.

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication. There are many communication problems with this company. From the corporate office to whatever site the employees work to management to the employees and, of course, the non-existent training. Seriously, if you've EVER worked for the federal government, than you know what an alphabet soup it can be and management expects you to learn all this in about 4 weeks which would be okay if they were UP FRONT about it--but its implied and subject to the employee's ability to mind read. HOWEVER, remember the best reason to work for this company, suck it up the soup and you too can be Tier 2 and then a project manager.

    Advice to Management

    On site managers are largely unnecessary because the employees are able to manage themselves. The on site managers know this, so to make themselves feel useful they micro manage the employees.


  2. A job with great pay but loaded with people that don't know how to manage.

    Pros

    The pay and unlike most IT jobs, you work one steady shift. The company has great benefits for now.

    Cons

    Poor management and you don't get paid OT for extra time you spend on special projects. In addition, you never get compensated when you take on a responsibility outside of your job description.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the management in one of their locations and find someone more suited for the job. The manager is related to one of her employees and they are too cliquey. The manager also has no backbone and will not stand up and fight for things she knows is right.
