    Pros

    Umm, I guess the Christmas party. The pay can be good for people just starting out. The industry needs help so during your honeymoon phase in the company you will feel passion for your job and all these faux altruistic motivations. But then you will crash.

    Cons

    This company is a mess. All the things people are saying are true. The nepotism, the fancy titles, the incompetent leaders, all of it is horrifically true. You will want to throw up working here. I mean it's not all bad, but the 75% that's bad, is bad!!!! I came to a conclusion that companies like this exist because the United States' political system is so screwed up that companies like this will keep on existing.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO and some senior leaders are good, good at what they do and I respect them. There is one Senior Vice President I respect because he is naturally good at what he does and is a natural leader. I can't say the same for some other senior leaders, especially the younger ones. They are a mess.

    My biggest advice is please come read Glassdoor reviews at least, and do something. Also, get your head out of the sand and realize that selling selling selling will only get you so far in long run. And as long as the election industry remains jacked up then go ahead make your profit; however, don't just ride waves, lead the waves. If you ride them long enough you will tossed around and away to a place you never want to be.

    I have been working at Election Systems & Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours with the ability to work from home. Most of the coworkers are great and they have made several improvements to the facilities.

    Cons

    No advancement unless you have the right last name or are a part of the boy's club. Hard worker and dedication is above and beyond normal standards, and they have little to no respect for personal lives and employees are expected to give up weekend and holidays for the company at no financial reward. Most managers lack the ability to lead and are not qualified.

    Advice to Management

    The executive team is pretty good but levels below need to be replaced. Work on a profit sharing program and advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Freedom to work remote. Good environment to work for. Good team.

    Cons

    There is not really a bonus. Pay is pretty decent.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the employees. Make sure their needs are met. Some kind of profit sharing or bonus would be a plus.

    I have been working at Election Systems & Software full-time

    Pros

    Rank and file employees are hard workers and dedicated to their clients. Good healthcare plan and nice events. Facility isn't terrible and they have updated some spaces lately

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours and holidays are not respected
    Management has become hotbed of nepotism lately, with unqualified staff elevated based on last names and romantic relationships
    New ceo has terrible reputation from prior employers and among customers with respect to fraternizing with employees of opposite gender
    Pay is well below industry standards
    Boys club in c-suites

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh management and reinvest in your employees with profit sharing

    Pros

    This review is specifically for the ES&S subsidiary FileONE:
    - Amazingly bright talent.
    - Visibility of impact of work effort on bottom line, customer sat., etc.

    Cons

    This review is specifically for the ES&S subsidiary FileONE:
    - Not enough consistency with internal processes, practices and tools over time to be able to measure and improve organizationally
    - Constantly changing priorities
    - Everything is top priority

    Advice to Management

    Clearly define goals at strategic, tactical and operations levels. Determine at what time intervals this will be reviewed/reconsidered, max. amount of deviation you'll allow, and KPI's. Stick to that, and improve incrementally - but consistently - over time.
