    I have been working at Perot Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Support for remote work is great. Ability to jump around to different teams in an account is great for getting "meaty" bullet points on a resume.

    Cons

    Job stability can be unpredictable due to the nature of contract work. Depending on the account, the number of positions may shrink or grow. Lots of rules and policies. Promotion can be difficult because of budget cuts. Sometimes the only way to get promoted is to apply internally to open positions. Over the last decade or so, I've watched many of the smaller Dell Services office close down. This is partly because of Dell cutting costs, but also because of shrinking account business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on policy and more on fostering an environment for creative and innovative employees.

    I have been working at Perot Systems (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was too much infighting, back bitting, and management that was very heavy handed with the employees. It also looked like downtown New Dehli with all of the Foreign guest visa workers from India that flooded that place

    Cons

    The management was mean and under handed, abusive and did not treat the employees with respect or anything else. It was not a good place to work and I would not recommend working there if I were you.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees better and treat them like human beings instead of using them to pit them off against one another. I know there were quite a few people that left that place because they could not stand all of the internal issues that were taking place there on a regular basis.

    I worked at Perot Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I gained a lot of experience for the 6 years I was there.

    Cons

    The organization constantly dangled a carrot in front of you to do more work but they didn't want to pay. During review time if you got a new position shortly before review time they would only review you based on your new position and you would be marked inadequate. There were no real opportunities to grow just do more work.

    I worked at Perot Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This firm no longer exists, sadly Perot sold company to Dell who broke up the organization that I joined

    Cons

    Typical challenges in a consolidation of 2 companies

    Advice to Management

    Key legacy Perot leadership has formed a new company, Guide IT. This company is growing and thriving, because the Perot System culture and values have endured and translated to Guide IT.

    I worked at Perot Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment was fairly laid back and the team I got to work with were brilliant. I learned a lot in this job just by having smart people around me.

    Cons

    Company values changed from ensuring high quality service to more bottom line oriented Compensation was fair but review structure and upward mobility seemed nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what made the company a great place at one point in time. By focusing on bottom line only you will lose out on clients.


  11. I went from a high school drop out to a college graduate at Perot, the company truly changed my life.

    I worked at Perot Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Perot was more than an office job, it was a culture. People who worked for Perot were on the forefront of the industry, they were bright and driven. But most of all they were very kind. I can't tell you the number of associates that helped me develop not only in my field, but as a person. There was no opportunity that wasn't offered. It was the first place I'd ever worked outside of the military that judged me for my future potential rather than past mistakes.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a con when it comes to Perot. I'd be making one up if I listed anything here.

    Advice to Management

    Include people. Never treat anyone like a number. When you show someone that their input matters, they're more likely to treat your company as more than just a job. Show them a way up, this will keep them from looking for a way out.
