Benjamin joined HCSS as a Strategy Intern and RAVES about his experience.
"You can see that HCSS doesn’t spoon-feed us and make interns fetch coffee for managers. HCSS gives its interns everything we need to succeed and will help us to do so."

Named one of the "Best Places to Work in Texas" for 11 Straight Years!
HCSS makes software, but they develop trust. While they take immense pride in the products they create, HCSS is even more proud of the strong relationships built with clients and within the HCSS family.
HCSS attracts and retains the best talent by providing an awesome work environment and treating employees like family. In turn, the employees develop the drive and commitment to produce great work and to treat customers with the very same respect and care.
Everyone at HCSS -- executives, managers, and employees – has one thing in common: they're all owners of the company. Because of that mentality, they take extra care in their work and with customers.
Named to Houston Business Journal's "Best Places to Work in Houston" and "Fast 100" lists!
You’ll spend approximately half of your life at work. Why make it boring and miserable? Think about how much happier you’d be going to a job you enjoyed – more than that, a job you loved, that made you look forward to going to the office every day. HCSS is dedicated to providing that kind of career to employees.
At HCSS, we’re all about that perfect work-life balance. We foster a casual work environment where the dress code includes T-shirts and jeans and office Nerf wars can break out any time. We focus on getting our work done, not on how many hours we put in. See how our team showcases our culture through #insideHCSS.
HCSS believes in being an integral partner of Sugar Land and the Greater Houston area. In addition to sponsoring several 5Ks and other events throughout the year, they also work with the Fort Bend Women's Center and other area charities. HCSS employees are into giving too, donating to Toys for Tots, working with Habitat for Humanity, and running to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research.

I have been working at HCSS full-time (More than 10 years)
You can do (almost) anything if you prove yourself. It can be difficult at times, I admit. If you want to get a job and ride it out without making waves, this may be not for you.
If you like being given a chance to do more than take phone calls or program something with no say, then you will like it. It is up to you to do it. There are paths for design, business, technical programming, implementation, sales, marketing. You are not stuck where you got hired if you show affinity in other areas.
I am not saying that you cannot feel like you are talking to a wall sometimes. However, if you have faith in yourself and can back it up, it will work. You can be heard at the highest levels. No accomplishment should be handed to you. It can be earned from low to high levels though.
No riding out a job for a paycheck forever. We don't want you anyway.
Advice to Management
Those that don't like a basic logic test shouldn't be considered. We work together to help the company grow and share a great bonus every year. If you aren't contributing, you are dragging everyone else down.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HCSS (Sugar Land, TX) in April 2017.
Standard question and answer session. If you've done this in the past 8-10 years, you'll get it. There was a math test upon entry, but I think they just want to make sure you can solve the issues they create all of their business from. Entire interview took 2+ hours, but it was well worth it. The environment tour was awesome. Straight out of Silicon Valley, but in Texas. I have never been in a work environment like this before. It is the main reason I am striving to work there.
