    Pros

    Some very good people who know their jobs very well.
    There are promotion opportunities, but seems variable on who you report too and which contract you get deployed to.

    Cons

    You need to be a protege of a senior level manger, or you will be very exposed at times.
    Lads culture on some contracts, if you don't play to fit in, you will have a hard time fitting in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hire people because they are smart, treat them that way after you've hired them.

    Pros

    Fantastic coworkers
    Intelligent management investment decisions
    Careful, sustained growth
    Leaders in niche revenue government consulting/tech market
    The people-centered culture of the company shows through.

    Cons

    The specific industry is very small and you work with the same group over and over. There's not a great deal of push for the latest and greatest technology so you end up pulling customers along. This leadership is good, but strains on customer relations are inevitable at times since it's all contract work and no commoditized market.

    Pros

    We just went through year end. Record promotions, great raises, great bonuses!

    Cons

    Extensive travel for some. Better to relocate to the client site if you can. Certain managers lack leadership skills (there is a difference between effective management vs. leadership).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks and keep up the good work! Keep the momentum of our new software. Invest in us. Bring us all together more often.

    Pros

    The only glowing review here is overblown. Please take it with a grain of salt.
    It is not advisable to work here long term. You will be pigeon holed in technology from the 90s. You don't wanna wake up one day and realize that you don't have the skills to get hired elsewhere at a good salary. If you have the option to work elsewhere in the industry, go there. If you end up here, get the hell out before you start rotting.
    1) You choose how hard you want to work. Many people, especially long timers are 9.00 - 5.00 types.
    2) You can take time off any time.
    3) If you stick around for a little bit, they may need you more than you need them.

    Cons

    1) Promotions yield negligible to none raises (hard to believe right! It's true though.) We are talking 3-4, at most 5K.
    2) The work will not challenge you after the first couple of months. Plus, things move very slowly in the government sector, so be prepared for pretty long lulls.
    3) There's no emphasis on generalists. People do one thing and one thing only day in and day out.
    4) There is little less than ZERO emphasis on innovation. Billable work is the buzzword.
    5) Salaries are very low compared to industry. If comp is important to you, look elsewhere.
    6) If you are motivated and driven with a zest for achievement, look elsewhere. Here you will run into a wall over and over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management needs to feel an obligation towards the growth and well being of employees. It shouldn't just be about the bottom line. That's the wrong way to do things. It needs to be a more symbiotic give and take type of a relationship between the company and the employees. Having deep knowledge of the industry, being smart and delivering projects is not enough. He should not be in any kind of a leadership role.

    Pros

    OK benefits
    work hours are fair

    Cons

    incompetent management
    treat employees with contempt, do not value them
    would rather have people who will do management's bidding than do what is right

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can you run a company this way? It is disgraceful how you treat employees.

    Too Many Levels of Micro Managers

    Pros

    Excellent CEO. Good salaries for TOP positions. Stable company.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management. Infighting between management. Incredible levels of micro management. Current products are at year 1999 levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the layers of managers. Move to agile development. Simplify project time tracking. Implement a learning culture so that developers can improve their skills.

    Low Pay, Great co-workers, shaky leadership

    Current Employee - Consultant in Columbia, SC
    Current Employee - Consultant in Columbia, SC

    I have been working at Revenue Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    1. Co-workers are friendly and willing to help other
    2. Development using the latest technology (Java, C#)
    3. Assist your tax agency in generating revenues

    Cons

    1. Low Pay (False promises: no annual trip, no profit sharing, no 401K match)
    2. Government clients are sometimes difficult to work with.
    3. Management's competitive strategy is blinded. The founders have been obsessed with developing an Integrated Tax System (ITS) since the company was formed back in the 90s. The decision to enter the ITS market with many existing players, limited number of customers and project overruns can only be described as a poor decision made from emotions rather than ROI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A present value analysis must be done to determine the benefits of investing more money into the ITS
