  1.  

    Horrible recruiters, complete incompetence at most levels of management. Most of which got promoted.

    Pros

    Nothing really. The company seemed hell-bent on increasing profit margins over delivering satisfaction or quality.

    Cons

    Company was focused on lowering costs and increasing profit margins at the expense of quality of service, ability to deliver service and everything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people that do horrible jobs. Every bit of the management that I interacted with until we were bought by Dell was absolutely awful. Even then almost all of the management was incompetent.

    Pros

    Experience with customers and getting experience with technology, methodology and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with delivering results for an end-user.

    Cons

    Incompetent district and account managers. Not a good company for a professionally competent woman. Women promoted by looks and not credentials or performance - at least work performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake the 1950s mentality and run accounts with the most qualified persons in appropriate roles.

    Pros

    Work time flexibility.
    Good pay package offered.

    Cons

    Totally management driven firm.
    No transparency in the policies.
    Can't escalate your issues to the higher level management. If one manager has some personal issues against any employee, he is left with no other option than to switch.
    HR has no ears for the employees.

    Pros

    Nice campus
    talented colleagues to work with.
    but everyone has or will soon quit dell services

    Cons

    Things have gone worse after dell acquired.
    No time for personal growth, sine they overload you with job
    people without talent are promoted just because they are good with managers.
    All compensations and benefits are cut after dell acquired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not learn things from Dell. Instead continue perot policies and encourage employees

    Pros

    Pay is good, plenty of parking, clean and modern facility. Lunchroom staff are friendly. A shuttle is available that connects to public transportation.

    Cons

    Positions are misrepresented. I was submitted as a QA automation tester working in Wellesley. After starting the assignment it suddenly turned into a manual tester working in Quincy, an additional 30 minutes each way. When myself and others mentioned their assignments were misrepresented, they were fired the same day.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Plano, TX

    I worked at Perot Systems

    Pros

    The campus is nice and conveniently located
    My co-workers were friendly and competent but they were usually overworked and exhausted

    Cons

    Encouraged to be dishonest with customer
    Far too much work, too many hours, too much travel for one person to do
    Not enough support from management and other departments to do a job we were contractually obligated to complete

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The financial success of the company was based on a name and was probably a lot of dumb luck. I hope the Dell purchase improves conditions for some really good people.

    I have been working at Perot Systems

    Pros

    Lack of mature Leaders, creating of a hostile work environment. Workers are told they have less days of PTO then they actually accrue. Management does not like to give emplyess time off and actually creates a hostile work environment by the badgering and underlying threats they use to control employee.

    Cons

    Hard working people dedicated to the Job and producing a good Job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at the managers leading the telecoms Group. Review their lack of leadership, organization, ownership and willingness to think out side of the box. This group engages in intimidation and in appropriate language in order to direct their teams.This group is destined for a law suit.
