    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    We were like a family, the company operated based on their great culture & values. I was very lucky I had wonderful managers and mentors and because of that I always gave 120% to my job. I received credit and recognition for all of my hard work.

    Cons

    When the company went public we lost some of the family atmosphere. Towards the end before the company was sold everything was about the stockholders, not the employees that built the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish you had not sold the company.

    Pros

    Strong team, smart folks, can-do attitude, respected as a team member if you have the chops.

    Cons

    Expect to be worked to death. Pulled many an over-nighter. There's a saying that "There's 7 days in a week and 24 hours in a day, then there's night's and weekends." It's an old EDS saying that applies here as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not any different than any other company. You're just an accounting entry that somebody is always trying to figure out how to reduce or eliminate. That's just business.

    Pros

    best set of values available in any company. Promotes ethics, professionalism, diversity, compliance, and honesty that created a very high quality business environment. Very thorough hiring process helps ensure high quality employees. Appropriate emphasis on performance reviews, and ample opportunity to be promoted from within.

    Cons

    a little rigid, but more than offset by values. Travel may be required in some cases in order to take advantage of opportunities.

    I worked at Perot Systems

    Pros

    Good salary,benefits, good employees, and excellent growth potential. I was informed that (depending on the contract you were on) Perot provided their employees with free parking.

    Cons

    Overall, I do not have any complaints concerning QSS Group or Perot Systems. However,during the merging process, one manager that I know of should not have been employed with the company. He really did not fit into QSS Group or Perot System's standard of competence.

    Pros

    There are great growth opportunities, great pay, and good people to work with. I started as a EA and ended as a project coordinator.

    Cons

    With the great pay came long hours, and the work would sometimes be stressful. There was a lot of travel involved as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership were very knowledgeable people who unlike other companies shared their visions to others and subordinates. They would help others achieve their goal in their career.

    Pros

    A compancy that understands that its people are centric to its success!! Wow, in this day and age, that is awesome.

    Cons

    Like most companies (I think), once you're in the dorr, the compensation/rewards become static and changes very little. However, the culture, environment and people compensate.
