    I worked at INDUS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The best reason I believe for working here is good communication with the team and always helping to create a smooth working environment.

    Cons

    the challenges one face is completing work on time and producing quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be able to communicate with the employees and share the pros and cons of their evaluation and help them to improve their skills I needed.

    I have been working at INDUS as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a very cool environment to work here. I was a J2ee Consultant to Indus Corporation and I must say it is one of the better places that i have worked. People are very nice and helpful. Less Politics and good work life balance. Overall a Great experience

    Cons

    Mangement is finding it tough to retain people. Need to give better packages.

    I worked at INDUS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The project managers were very good about engaging with the contractors they managed. Communication was encouraged.

    Cons

    Once a new employee began working at the client site, there was very little involvement with the company outside of the staff for the client site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some more interaction to build camaraderie between headquarters and the client sites would be good. Incentives such as free tickets to local events or an annual picnic.

    Pros

    Good company, stable, nice admin staff.

    Cons

    Salary offered is pretty low compared to market. They didn't give me an opportunity to move within the organization as I was doing well with my position with a low salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open.

    I have been working at INDUS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great support staff, very dedicated and professional. Nice office environment and facilities. Very well run proposal operation. Approachable senior management. Effective office, payroll, accounts payable procedures.

    Cons

    No IT capabilities. No strategic vision for customer solutions. No commitment to quality deliverables / no operational QA program. A mid-tier provider burdened with an 8(a) management philosophy and mindset. Woefully unsuccessful in re-competing existing contracts and retaining core technical staff. A capture rate no firm would aspire to. No core competency offerings - just a body shop for Federal clients. So focused on winning the mega-million contracts, that they have forgotten about their current customers, and building out core compentency areas in IT and GIS. Revolving door model for senior management and VP's. No commitment to career development of junior staff. No training opportunities. No corporate vision for where the company wants to be in 5 years. Focus is on posturing the firm for immediate purchase and reducing operational costs. Very poor commitment to manage off site staff. Very much an ego-driven management model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk away from your current business model, and focus on where INDUS wants to be in 5 years. Talk to your customers. Know your customers challenges. Find a better way to communicate to your mid-level managers, and technical staff. Instill some corporate pride in the organization. Cull the dead wood staff, and reward the performers. Put senior management on notice to perform, or move on.

    I have been working at INDUS

    Pros

    Room to grown and health benefits is ok

    Cons

    The annual financial compensation isn't much. Depending on the team/division you could be stuck with the same stuff for a very very long time. Dental benefits suck!

    Pros

    Relax environment, great upper management, the benefits are wonderful.

    Cons

    Very clique-type environment, laced with elements of bias toward some, but that's expected in most places. But overall the best company I've worked for.
