    I worked at Perot Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    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

    Loved woking for the Navy in DC.

    Cons

    Employees not given merit for experience, if you had a degree and new out of college...you were pushed to the top. Those who worked there over 5 years and no degree were pushed aside and ignored. Glad I got out when I did, the Supv. I had got a taste of his own medicine. He was removed from his Project Management position, replaced by a female. What goes around, comes around I say.

    "Dell or Perot "Address the problems and support the staff when policies and procedures are still in there efficiency at the client site instead of churning people as the problem.

    In 2007, QSS Group Inc, merged with Perot Systems Government Services. I experience was great.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
