I worked at Performant full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Easy to be hired, difficult to be fired. Low expectation from management to be a productive, contributing member of organization (if that is a "PRO")

Cons

Company offers no raises, no chance of promotion and no title promotions. The result is an organization that offers little incentive to contribute to organization's success. With the absence of a professional "carrot" the worker's that have been there longer than 5 years begin to feel defeated and stop taking pride in their work. This causes a lot of the responsibility for production to fall on newly-hired employees, or worse yet temporary employees. Upper management has ZERO respect for subordinates or tolerance for constructive criticism.

BEWARE: Stay here long-term and you will have nothing to show for professional progress and your time at Performant will look more like a blemish than a highlight.

Advice to Management

Hold the unproductive accountable. Offer incentive for doing quality work.

Take constructive criticism. However since they won't, I doubt they'll even read this far into my review.

    Cons

    Terrible compensation from salary to perks.
    Top/Middle management does not have a clue about IT or technology.
    Business requirements are not transferred into technical projects due to lack of technical expertise.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to stay in IT, hire technical staff or at least for the decision making positions.
