I have been working at Commercial Programming Systems as a contractor (More than 3 years)
I consider the people at CPS to be among the best informed and most professional people I have worked with. There are very few people who have called me with a job that I can say have done their homework on the position so well that any question I can ask will be answered with any BS or saying they will find out for me.
The only "con" is that there aren't more companies like CPS. Also, unfortunately, I wish they'd find more openings in Orange County that fit my background.
Advice to Management
I'd like to see you expand and succeed. Perhaps there is a way to be more of an innovator in terms of training and paid time-off, where applicable.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Commercial Programming Systems (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2010.
CPS asked detailed questions regarding my skill sets and verified all of it. This turned out to be very important as they specifically match the skill sets with the customer's needs. The customer also asked detailed questions and provided example scenarios to see how I would address the issues.
The negotiated salary was acceptable. They even offered to negotiate a raise after my first year anniversary, which I did receive.
