    Pros

    Bonus! Bonus! every quarter. Little supervision at outreach offices. If you like working with the community this is a great job for you. Paid Federal Holidays.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors only care about bonus for themselves.Representatives can easily be disqualified for bonus. There is also too much favoritism among employees. Promotions happen on the basis if they like you or not and not so much on your qualifications. Some managers like to micro manage their staff by setting excessive production goals. Supervisors are under-qualified and possess little to no people skills. There is also an attendance point system all staff have 40 points to start and get minus 2 points for tardiness and minus 4 points for call outs. They use this point system to disqualify staff from bonuses. Overall the job is good at first but after a while it is best to move on to a better company who values their employees and provide proper training for upward mobility. Last but not least they try to undermine and belittle higher educated staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look more at the qualifications of management team for a more satisfactory work environment and productivity. Learn to value your employees more and set reasonable goals.

    Former Employee - Appeals Officer in King of Prussia, PA

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

    Pros

    Coworkers. If not for them, I would have lost it.

    Cons

    Unpaid overtime. Tasks added to daily responsibilities with no understanding of how much time they might take, and still, see point one, no overtime pay. Constant changing quotas and expectations. Favoritism. Sexual harassment. Manipulating cases/adjudications to get the desired results. Faking numbers. Threats to job security. Kept employees as temps for a year or more, never hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! As long as you still work there, I will never, ever, have to work under you again, because I can't see any scenario in life that would take me back to Maximus.
