    I worked at Software Specialists as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are helpful. The overall experience is good. Good company benefits for contractors.

    Cons

    Account manager communications with their clients could be drastically improved. Client I contracted to only heard from Software Specialists once after I was accepted for the contract. Other companies were in contact with the client on a monthly basis. Short handed, when key personnel in the office left the company, they were not replaced. All phone calls for the main number went to voice mail of the person that left, and it was not monitored. Changed the contract terms after contract started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace key people when they leave the office.
    Make key decision that pertain to your company and contractors in a timely manner, preferably weeks before they are to go into effects.

    I worked at Software Specialists

    Pros

    SSI is a "work hard, play hard" company. They are sensitive to work/life balance and are very generous to the employees. The employees work hard, have great incentives to succeed, and have a good time together. The owner is a great guy, very family oriented, very easy to work for. The VP is awesome.

    Cons

    Some managers are not managers; well, not good managers. There is a huge disconnect between managers and employees. There is a lack of respect among sales, recruiters and their respective managers. Meetings are way too long and unproductive and threats are issued unnecessarily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a recruiter to find better managers. There is a lack of expertise and professionalism among managers and some of the employees. Remember that you get what you pay for. You hire nice people, but they are not necessarily good at what they do. You would be much further ahead if you just bit the bullet, paid for an expert and let that person increase productivity and, consequently, revenue.

    Pros

    Management wants to see you succeed. You're not just another number to them. The company is very reputable and is an easy selling point to potential clients.

    Cons

    Because the HQ only has a few employees, it's easy for mild annoyances to turn into "In-Fighting"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let pettyness distract you from your job. Some peopel just complain to complain-It may be best to nip it in the bud early and tell that type of employee to "Shut Up and Work", for lack of a better term.
