Clueless managers. If it can be done by an H-1b then it will be.

I worked at MAXIMUS as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

They kept their workstations and servers up-to-date. They were open to using the latest versions of frameworks.

Cons

I interacted with three managers on several projects. The managers had very little understanding of the SDLC. If a requirement was changed or added, the managers were of the opinion that the developers should have foreseen the need and already have the functionality needed implemented. I was literally told that if I was asked a question it was never acceptable to say that I did not know. That that response was very unprofessional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are going to commit to a course of action without involving the project team, do not expect them to take the blame when it fails.

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

    Pros

    Large firm, lots of projects, experience, resources.

    Cons

    Very concerned with wall street and quarterly results, to a fault. Large seven-figure deals are of paramount importance to this firm. Smaller contracts/projects/engagements did not seem to matter much to the company and management.

    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are decent. You usually have job security unless you really royally mess up.

    Cons

    Not good at keeping employees moral up especially when they laid off numerous people. No incentives. Cutting back on tons of things to save money and make themselves comparable to competitors. Lack of communication. Managers want to be everyone's boss.
