Pros

Sunquest offers 2 weeks vacation to incoming employees, as well as great health and retirement benefits. Current policy is matching 4% total income into 401k (with a 6% income contribution). The vacation is easily taken, and I haven't ever had a request rejected. The employees always work in teams, and there's great cross-team functionality. Compared to other workplaces, the "drama" is very minimal, so you can actually be productive. Feels like working with a family.

Cons

Constant monitoring of all possible measurable metrics for every position. I've yet to see them fire anyone over not hitting target numbers, but even still, there's always that reminder that they're measuring. There's also a constant push to go above and beyond the job expectations that's expected of everyone. Every week your commitments are evaluated in team meetings to make sure your doing them,

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Sunquest Information Systems are:
    -they will hire you without experience, so you can get past the "experienced required" part of developing a career
    -it's in Tucson
    -40 hour work weeks, unless you just want to work more
    -gym and cafeteria on-site
    -limited other options in AZ other than defense

    Cons

    Very concerned with costs: low per diem allowances on travel, so much so that people try to avoid traveling, little investment in tools and equipment, corporate priority initiatives handed to interns, entry-level staff, work off-shored to save short-term costs

    Owned by equity company - emphasis on generating cash for owners

    No chance to move into management positions from engineering positions, management is an HR function (no functional leadership)

    Very high ratios of staff to managers so reviews are not helpful

    No opportunity to learn to be better in your field, because HR/Vista is not interested in hiring "that level of talent" - exceptions to this are the areas of process/procedure writing/auditing and very basic project management where you can get good experience

    Salary increases for performance are capped at levels near cost of living

    Executive management is not on-site

    Working remotely is not permitted except for executives and traveling positions like sales and implementation.

    A company run by spreadsheet, not by vision or any desire to produce amazing software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership is doing exactly what they need to do to get bonuses - minimize costs, maximize revenue in the short term.

    Pros

    Managers and co-workers are nice; Information sharing is pretty effective within the company; They do pay attention to personal professional development.

    Cons

    The biggest dissatisfaction is the low pay, except which, I couldn't come up with any others. Besides, benefit package is pretty fine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like my manager's leadership style. He focus on his employees' personal development, and offers opportunities according to your professional goal. That's pretty nice!
