    They should be on the rise with the addition of outside capital and new management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsOverall a very nice group of people with whom to work

    ConsMany years of trying to do something with nothing and, of course, ending up with nothing.
    My hope is that recent changes to management and financing will result in greatly improved product and career satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let old management practices persist under new regime and don't keep people around who are not succeeding. It's not good for them or for the company.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Personify Rewards Hard Work

    Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    Pros- The Personify management team identify intelligent, hard working individuals and reward appropriately.
    - The already enjoyable atmosphere and culture of Personify is only improving.
    - The usual things such a salary and benefits are as competitive and as to be expected.
    - The people. If you enjoy learning, working, and even having fun with caring, dedicated, and intelligent people, Personify is for you.

    Cons- Committing yourself to do good work can occasionally result in working more than the expected 40 to 45 hours a week. It does not happen regularly and is generally expected as a salaried employee in the software industry.
    - For people who struggle with organization and time management, Personify would be difficult and stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be the extraordinary leadership that makes Personify a fantastic place to build a career.

    Great IT company with accepting environment, great leaders, and strong work ethic.

    Software Support Specialist (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    Pros- Leadership is down-to-earth and helpful in many aspects
    - Your left to yourself to do your work without someone hovering over you
    - All employees are helpful and contribute to helping others
    - Benefits package is amazing - medical, vacation, etc.
    - Hours are your pick, with options for telecommuting for appointments and sick days
    - Communication is utilized and everyone has an "open door" policy
    - Very flexible schedule
    - Ability to move between departments and advance in your career quickly

    Cons- Training is a little inconsistent, and you end up having to go to other employees to be taught how to accomplish certain tasks
    - Days can be long to get work done (though those are few and far between in the CS department)

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job, thanks for the amazing opportunity.

    Good Old Boys and Girls Click

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsGreat staff consultants who work hard to do what is needed
    Resource teams are dedicated to fix all the software issues as needed

    ConsIt's a numbers game - must always be billable and utilized or your time with the company is over
    You can be a great resource but if you are not on a profitable project you will be continually badgered to generate revenue
    $$$'s are all that matter to the COO unless you area in the "in group"
    Lots of unethical relationships
    If they are afraid you will leave they tend to throw money for you to stay

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on a good quality product and reward hardwork not only based upon being billable

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You are nothing but a number

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsCompetitive pay, bonus for good numbers

    ConsNegative attitude persists at all levels in the corporation. Nasty emails and talking behind peoples backs is common. Established political groups have closed door meetings to ensure job security. Everyone in the organization is scared of the owner and COO so priorities are aligned towards presenting the best picture to them rather than the truth. However, strangely enough the managing director of professional services feels comfortable enough to openly mock them in large meetings.

    The only real concern by upper management is that you hit your numbers. This creates a survivalist atmosphere where employees are unwilling to cooperate with each other. The only real cooperation comes from political groups that have banded together.

    You must hit a certain number of billable hours every month or you will have a target on your back. Management has monthly meetings where they review spreadsheets to identify who hasn't hit enough hours. However, once you figure out how the timesheet system works there is opportunity to fudge your numbers - this seems to be standard practice for some employees.

    Even putting all of the above aside, it's just not a pleasant place to work. Perhaps it's because the owner fashions himself to be Steve Jobs Jr. or perhaps it's the focus on revenue generation, but there is an overwhelming sense of uneasiness within the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop focusing on squeezing every last dollar out of customers and focus on improving quality and efficiency.

    Upper Management Needs an Overhaul Especially the COO

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsThe people you work with do whatever it takes to get things done!!

    ConsNeed to improve quality. Need to be less fixated on resource revenue generation and more focused on the quality of the software.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your people and realize they work extremely hard so don't mandate 9 to 5 office hours when people are working 12 hour plus days, taking calls in the early morning, nights and weekends!! .

    Not a bad company to work for if you are a "Yes" man.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsThe people were the best reason to work at TMA Resources.

    ConsThe upper management is intrenched at the company and are very hard to convince to try new innovative ideas. If you are looking for a company to get ahead at and possibly learn in a good environment I would look elsewhere. Office Politics are hard to overcome in this company. Unless you are skilled in navigating these waters I would try a different company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek outside help and hire on a seasoned leadership team. With this addition the company may actually be able to improve.
