    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    The job is very stressful. The client, CMS, has a very high standard and demands which is really hard to achieve knowing that their system doesn't even work properly.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Just can't do anything about the stress at work because of the client.

    Pros

    Work was always interesting and challenging. Company stays on top of the latest technology. They hire a very diverse workforce which makes team interaction very strong and the environment was always stimulating educationally. Opportunities for learning always encouraged.

    Cons

    Not enough encouragement or assistance for former employees who did not leave of their own accord.

    Advice to Management

    Supply former employees who wanted to keep working for the company with contacts for potential and upcoming positions in the area.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, interesting to provide for military, good people to work with.

    Cons

    "Wait in line" approach to promotions, most young talent leave as they are not developed. Merger has killed culture. A lot of people don't work, management avoids the conversation.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing and rewarding talent

    Pros

    Knowing I was part of history in the making. Helping people get insurance for the first time.

    Cons

    Too many non caring people employed there. No background were completed unless you were made permanent FT. Pay was okay for Waco, $10.46 Not sure if a raise in pay would attract better people.

    Advice to Management

    None, some of supervisors that were there when I was didn't care since they weren't making that much more money than the contract people.

    Pros

    Great department team to work with. Everybody pulling together to get the projects and daily work done that creates excellent end-user satisfaction.

    Cons

    Management could be more supportive. They over-use the concept that the IT customer is always right. Management does not stand behind their employees and are prone to point the finger instead of taking the blame. Also too much work for the staff to handle without burn-out. Salaried staff work usually 50+ hour per week ( zero over-time ).

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees in all appropriate situations. Give credit where credit is due and face-up to the client when they are wrong. Pay what is deserved for the efforts expended for both exempt employees that by law you must do for non-exempt (hourly) employees.
