Pros

Pegasus Solutions has some creative people and good talent. The Scottsdale location is good, albeit over kill. The operations staff (non management) *was* dedicated, and they used to support each other.

Cons

Pegasus Solutions just did a crazy thing and outsourced their *entire* Operations staff. All of their DBAs, Unix and Windows System Administrators to HP. This in itself isn't a bad thing, but they underestimated the staff's ability to find work. They did not offer any incentive to help transition to HP support ... AT ALL! Therefore, they will be lucky to have 10% of their experienced staff to do 24 hour support during the Christmas and New Year season. This should give a big leg up to competitors. Pegasus operated on an Operations shoestring, anyhow. Watching a company shooting itself in the foot is not fun.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well, I'm not sure you can do anything at this point. Get the HP staff on-site and offer some key people some very large retention bonuses; you may get one or two to bite. Also, look at who on your staff recommended this (transferring support without a plan), and see if you can find who is working with the competition. Anybody is replaceable; even an entire Operations department if at least some planning is done.

    Pegasus is a good place to work and can be even better with a few minor changes.

    Pros

    Pegasus Solutions is technically innovative and not caught up in the drama and politics of other companies. Pegasus allows people to be themselves without having to "act" in a certain way. There is challenging work that is fun to do and an individual has opportunity to make a difference in a positive way.

    Cons

    Pegasus Solutions needs to have more new people moving into Pegasus. There are a lot of people that have had long term careers there, which has stunted their technical and business growth. They are a bit heavy in management and have many directors and VPs without direct reports. Several of the directors are really glorified team leads. There may be some favoritism in the upper engineering level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Bring in new blood
    2) Delegate manual labor to lower paid employees; you may lose talented employees because they are bored with the amount of grunt work
    3) Work on synergies within the departments
    4) Benefits are low in comparison to other companies
