    Pros

    Great benefits
    Wonderful co-workers
    Casual business attire
    Good work/life balance
    Solid 401K
    Good career opportunities

    Cons

    Too many people are related (never criticize anyone's work performance--their relative is probably a VP)
    Kingwood is really a long drive
    Slow pace of change
    Lack of urgency sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I would focus more on a marketing strategy and stop running the organization by the sales department--seems like there isn't a plan. Also, hire more people from the outside.

    Pros

    Generous PTO policy.
    Comfortable pace.
    Great work/life balance.
    Mostly pleasant coworkers.
    This is a company you can retire from.

    Cons

    This is a company you can retire from. It is not uncommon to see people receiving 10, 15, and even 20-year service awards. If you desire a comfortable 9-5 job and career development is not a priority, this is the place to be. If this is not you, you will find yourself suffocated by processes, outdated technologies, and a prevailing unwillingness to take risks and deliver better products.

    Core technology products are outdated and stale. Most were not developed in house, but came by acquiring smaller companies and patching pieces together. Some progress is being made in adopting newer and better technologies, but the software equivalent of duct tape and bandages are typically the order of the day. Management is unwilling to make the right investments in technology.

    Thick and ineffective middle management layer. Many managers exemplify the Peter Principle. All but a good few are "bosses" who fancy themselves "leaders". It is commonplace for non-manager employees to interact with their managers only a handful of times in an entire year. For these non-manager employees, it can mean one of two things: 1) It takes a lot to get fired. 2) It takes a lot to get noticed and move up.

    Micromanagement via "Agile" processes. Insperity's "Agile" follows the opposite of what is proposed in the Agile Manifesto. Overemphasis on process. Documentation. Negotiation with stakeholders vs collaboration. Overplanning. Meetings. Meetings. Meetings to plan meetings. All of the above contribute to software being shipped very very slowly.

    For a company that provides retirement services to other companies, the corporate 401K plan is underwhelming. Decent match (50% up to 6% contribution) with poor investment options.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, people are nice

    Cons

    Limited accountability, weak bonus plan for non-executives, organizational structure, and lack of cascading goals limit the commitment and execution.

    Pros

    Great team environment with very approachable senior management. There is always some sort of activity that brings the office together.

    Cons

    Despite stressing the importance of work/life balance - the new workloads are requiring more late nights with no flexible schedule during the day. Very stress trying to take even 2 days in a row of PTO. No growth opportunity.

  8. Great company to work for

    Pros

    great company, great benefits, great people.

    Cons

    just like any large company, you have to deal w/ the politics.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so proprietary with internal information. We have a lot of data we can use to determine trends that will help our clients succeed, and we aren't able to use it.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Depending on which geography you work will equate to the amount of sales success you will have. If you are not in a fiber rich market do no expect to build a solid pipeline that you can make money in. Pricing, service delivery and customer service are issues.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to help build sales leads in off net markets.

    Pros

    Great people, great mission and great services for clients.

    Cons

    Politics. Politics exist at every company but there are so many bad politics at Insperity. Many c-level execs and directors who have been here forever and do not like change. If you are related to someone at the top, you're a "golden child" and can get away with anything.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more from outside of family and outside of the industry.
