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

    Pros

    Strong leadership, disciplined, didn't panic as many do today

    Cons

    Sometimes too conservative, executives did little to develop and reward staff, those in the Ivory Tower did very well when Dell purchased them, the rest watched their jobs go to India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold the course, believe in the product, people and processes. Ignore the stock market

    I worked at Perot Systems

    Pros

    Allowed me to learn new functions in the begining of my career with them.

    Cons

    At the end of my career not allowed to cross function new tasks related to position.
    Racist issues arose and instead of fixing the issue, the person was moved to a different team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value current employees and allow room for growth this should be throughout the employees career not only as a new employee. Fix racist issues by having a no tolerance policy not by moving the problem elsewhere.

    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.
