No opinion of CEO

I worked at MAXIMUS as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

They kept their workstations and servers up-to-date. They were open to using the latest versions of frameworks.

Cons

I interacted with three managers on several projects. The managers had very little understanding of the SDLC. If a requirement was changed or added, the managers were of the opinion that the developers should have foreseen the need and already have the functionality needed implemented. I was literally told that if I was asked a question it was never acceptable to say that I did not know. That that response was very unprofessional.

Advice to Management

If you are going to commit to a course of action without involving the project team, do not expect them to take the blame when it fails.

    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large firm, lots of projects, experience, resources.

    Cons

    Very concerned with wall street and quarterly results, to a fault. Large seven-figure deals are of paramount importance to this firm. Smaller contracts/projects/engagements did not seem to matter much to the company and management.
