Pros

If you perform your job well, you rarely hear from PSS. The benefits are great and the vacation time is slightly above average.

Cons

PSS does not reward over-achivers. Training is not accessible, unless the contract is paying for your time to take training. Communication is non-existent. Many times you will not meet your "manager" more than once a year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with employees. Don't mis-advertise training. Treat employees like they are your product and you care.

    PSS is a good place to work if you work for a competent member of Senior Management. I did not.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest and most competent people in the Federal contracting industry work at PSS. Nice offices. Overall, it is a better-than-average Federal contractor.

    Cons

    There was a real weakness in Senior Management, which I heard they corrected. I hope that is true. Also, because of personal friendships with Senior Management, certain people were allowed to literally run amok and threaten other employees. Again, I heard that this problem was fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO leadership was amazing. Next level down was a mixed bag. I heard that there were some changes made at that level, which can only be a good thing. There was bad communication and intolerance, and people were put into uncomfortable positions where they had to defend themselves because they were mischaracterized by others. It was a very uncomfortable place to be.
