    Low Pay, Great co-workers, shaky leadership

    • Senior Management

    Current Employee - Consultant in Columbia, SC

    I have been working at Revenue Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    1. Co-workers are friendly and willing to help other
    2. Development using the latest technology (Java, C#)
    3. Assist your tax agency in generating revenues

    Cons

    1. Low Pay (False promises: no annual trip, no profit sharing, no 401K match)
    2. Government clients are sometimes difficult to work with.
    3. Management's competitive strategy is blinded. The founders have been obsessed with developing an Integrated Tax System (ITS) since the company was formed back in the 90s. The decision to enter the ITS market with many existing players, limited number of customers and project overruns can only be described as a poor decision made from emotions rather than ROI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A present value analysis must be done to determine the benefits of investing more money into the ITS

    Low paying, Low pressure, Fairly secure, Low growth potential

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consultant  in  Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Consultant in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Revenue Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    1) The job can be fairly secure.

    2) Hours can be very easy. It is unlikely that you will be required to exert yourself or work more 40 hrs.

    3) You can take time off any time you need.

    Cons

    1) Compensation is significantly less than market, usually by 25 - 40%. In most cases management tries to pay the bare minimum specified by the federal government for a city.

    2) Benefits are sub-par. For people with a spouse/partner, only you are covered, partner has to fend for himself/herself. The HMO plan covering the employee is mediocre due to a lot of co-pays that are required.

    3) Recruiters and managers behave like shady car salesmen during the recruiting process by overselling perks and bonuses. Most of the promises like annual outings, productivity and sales bonuses and profit sharing is a bunch of crap. Don't count on any of that.

    4) There is more value given to the number of years an employee spends at the company than the merit and potential of employees.

    5) Managers are lax when it comes to writing performance reviews and giving feedback. Most of the time it seems like managers "don't really care" about the project. The senior management usually turns a blind eye to such incompetencies.

    6) Government negotiations can be long drawn. It takes months for a project to kick off and you need to sit there and twiddle your thumbs. The company does not provide many facilities other companies seem to provide such as wireless internet access etc.

    7) RSI works for ONLY ONE type of client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay according to the market.

    Try to correct these deficiencies.
