    I have been working at Enterprise Information Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people in this company care about their employees, but they won't coddle you. If you like to work hard and know what you want with respect to opportunities and working conditions, you can be happy here. You won't be asked to work 50+ hour weeks if you don't want to do so. If you want everything handed to you on a silver platter, look elsewhere. Customer satisfaction is held in the highest regard on annual reviews. Flexible working arrangements are available depending on contract limitations.

    Cons

    The company has recently grown to medium sized status and is experiencing some growing pains in infrastructure, but the staff all respond well to employee requests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the customer first, but be more active in seeking advice on internal improvements from staff.

    I have been working at Enterprise Information Services

    Pros

    Compared to where I've worked in the past - can't think of one.

    Cons

    I really do not care for several of their policies. For one thing, if you are contracted to a government office, and they close for weather, holidays, etc - tough noogies, you're without pay or taking personal leave. Too many personal agendas; a new person coming aboard has to pull teeth to get support. Interviews leave out - shall we say - a whole lot of important information, like what the job really entails, and the length of the contract. It is not a terrible company to work for - but ask lots of questions, negotiate high on salary, and be prepared for surprises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more respect for your employees would be nice.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to prove yourself and get rewarded for results.
    Not much management, oversight or direction, just have to figure out what’s needed and do it!

    Cons

    Benefits are provided, but employees need to kick in more and more for the basics. No training other than reimbursements for seminars and special needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more IT embracing tools and technology. Databases and a knowledgebase would also help.

    I have been working at Enterprise Information Services

    Pros

    Have been treated with respect personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Government work based on limited time contracts.

    Short on staff and more compitent help needed.

    I worked at Enterprise Information Services

    Pros

    first level management was very 'people' conscious ...
    human resources was the most cohesive group i've encountered ...
    big on training (not on their dime)

    Cons

    upper echelon very greedy, and not willing to pay fair wages ...
    absolutely languid employee retention (turnover rate entirely too high) ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't be so greedy ... how much is enough, when almost everyone below VP and PM level are underpaid, and still affording you profits

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. No stress because of the government contracts. You can do as much or as little depending on your conciense.

    Cons

    Senior management has zero presence. Lower level management is a joke. Nobody cares about the client (including the client itself) and the work except the worker bees. No motivation. Heard no promotion either.

    Pros

    Great people on the front lines who are easy to work with and collaborate on projects

    Cons

    Morale suffers due to lack of positive leadership and direct feedback. Performance review system lacks correlation to established goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide regular feedback and clear direction to all employees. Ensure that all employees know where they stand on their performance and attainment of goals not just at performance review time. No surprises works both ways

    I have been working at Enterprise Information Services full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance, good coworkers, initially interesting work, fun company holiday parties, company is growing every year

    Cons

    Severely underpaid, upper management tend to believe the rules and policies are beneath them, not much room for growth once you hit your peak (which seems to come quickly)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. The good ones tend to leave pretty quickly for better opportunities. I understand this is a business, but living in the DC-metro area is not cheap, and for the work that is necessary to keep the company afloat, it is essential and cost-efficient to pay people what they are worth upfront.

    I worked at Enterprise Information Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The peoples that are in a non-management position are human being.

    Cons

    One owner; one boss; one leader for all (claim to be) department. It is a cult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The real management (owner); no advice is good enough

    Pros

    Several good employees who are willing to put up with the baloney

    Cons

    No employee feedback until you get called in by the COO and milk-toast HR manger and handed a termination letter full of inaccuracies listing your sins and omissions. I told the COO I never had any indication of performance issues and he said: "Yeah, we gotta' do better on that."
    You have to suck up to owner and the incompetent management team and shut up with good ideas if you want to keep your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the owner out of daily management. Hire competent leadership team.
