Pros

Interested to innovate, excellent customers, strong brand and market presence. Focused to do things very inexpensively

Cons

Leadership is predominantly from the 2009 acquisition of ACS (Affiliated Computer Services). Goal of reducing costs takes only spreadsheet view ... no consideration of client impacts -- until it is too late.

Advice to Management

Continue to re-invent the brand, communicate to the Street that your primary business (outsourcing) has limits for margin growth. Focus on satisfying clients in the LONG term (vs. quick hits to "keep business") and hire leaders who know how to mange PEOPLE vs. THINGs.

    Pros

    Brand Recognition and business resources provided.

    Cons

    The company is constantly experiencing major changes in direction and focus. They keep changing objectives and target markets with little concern of the impact on the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Demonstrate to your employees they are valued and not considered just a commodity.

    Pros

    Possible to arrange flexible work hours with a manager if you have a compelling circumstance.

    Cons

    No prospects for upward mobility since the organization has flattened out, especially if you are not in the main campus in Rochester NY. Significant reduction in benefits over the years, thus effectively reducing the total pay. Lack of job security: there is a layoff almost every year.
