Pros

Some of the nicest and most competent people in the Federal contracting industry work at PSS. Nice offices. Overall, it is a better-than-average Federal contractor.

Cons

There was a real weakness in Senior Management, which I heard they corrected. I hope that is true. Also, because of personal friendships with Senior Management, certain people were allowed to literally run amok and threaten other employees. Again, I heard that this problem was fixed.

Advice to Management

CEO leadership was amazing. Next level down was a mixed bag. I heard that there were some changes made at that level, which can only be a good thing. There was bad communication and intolerance, and people were put into uncomfortable positions where they had to defend themselves because they were mischaracterized by others. It was a very uncomfortable place to be.

    Pros

    Great people and good environment to work. I had some of the best co workers that I ever had while working there.

    Cons

    Management needs to communicate better with there employees. Contracts and Accounting need to turn their work around quicker.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees your vision of the company. Don't just let them find out by their other coworkers.
