    I have been working at ePlus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stability, good benefits, decent 401k program, flexible work hours. In my position I have MBOs I can work towards in order to earn quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Not the most up to date on technology and software and there aren't many opportunities for growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing more current technologies and software - also, try working on the company culture. We're a 1,000+ person company but we don't have holiday parties or networking opportunities.

    I worked at ePlus as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of brilliant minds working at ePlus. A lot of employees there have been working there for a long time so that promotes the idea of stability and consistency.

    Cons

    It is a competitive industry and because some projects take a lot of time from conception to deployment, there is some downtime, but enough to continue training and provide the highest quality service to clients.

    I have been working at ePlus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a solid company with a great portfolio of clients of all kind. Given variety of clients and projects you get to learn and work with a lot of cutting edge technologies. There are quite a few sharp engineers who are very dedicated and willing to help you if you face a challenge. You won't be micromanaged.

    Cons

    This is a sales company regardless what career opportunities they are trying to "sell" you on interview. Any professional development and training is judged upon whether it will make more sales at the end. Thus, they will rather willing to have you to do a miracle and develop yourself in 10 best-selling-this-year technologies/products than interested in having deep expertise in specific area. Everything is done on cheap. Salary is average, benefits are subpar, 401K match is a complete joke. Your hours are flexible, meaning you will be expected to work late hours and weekends to make the sale happen. Pre/post sales engineers are overbooked, frequently on the road and being teared apart by sales managers due to overlapping time frames and projects. Post-sales and managed services engineers are on the bottom of the food chain. Absolutely no career development plans. Training is mostly non-existent and limited to whatever self-paced material is available from vendors. Well known fact is that salary raises and promotions are only happening when someone is announcing about going to resign. Too much leadership and director titles but no real leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up, economy is not that bad anymore: review your compensation levels and benefits. Respect your talent and stop referring your engineers as "bodies to make more sales" on national sales meetings. Plan on train and develop deep expertise rather than having "jacks of all kinds" with mediocre knowledge of dozen things. Promote within rather than hiring from outside (vendors).

    I have been working at ePlus full-time

    Pros

    Adopted many up-to-date technologies and software engineers get to explore new tools and develop new skills to keep up with the IT world.

    Cons

    Mid-management team focus a lot on SDLC while there is not enough budget to follow and execute through. No company-wide software design standards and patterns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your capable senior engineers more and hire junior engineers to be trained and grown into company culture instead of hiring all senior but unproven engineers. Need better tools to help streamline the development process instead of some glued-together solutions.

    I have been working at ePlus full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Individual contributors and engineers are sharp and get the job done

    Cons

    Two types of people. The ones that have been there 10+ years and those less than a year. Managers are arrogant and politics are rampant. One and done defines this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with some creative ideas for growing the business. Hiring and firing just to justify managements existence is a poor business plan.

    I worked at ePlus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to build your resume with different tasks (You won't get paid for those tasks though)

    Cons

    Lots of managers, directors, and VPs. Very few true leaders. Upper management tends to promote yes-men and yes-women with little regard for actual performance. Little growth for those that aren't willing to let politics dictate the integrity of his/her work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold management accountable for their department. Also, conduct annual reviews before issuing raises. You'd be shocked to know what their subordinates really think of their "leader"

    I have been working at ePlus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have managed to keep some great people and have very talented engineers across the country. They have a good base of large, well-known customers and a very diverse portfolio to sell from.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement and not much in the way of employee development. Engineers have to keep a timesheet and are constantly nagged to make sure they submit them on time even though it appears little is used from them. No matter how hard an engineer works, the glory goes to the account manager and little to the engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your comp plan for bonuses to engineers. They sell much more than you give them credit for and develop more business than you realize. Not all sales come from account managers.
