    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time

    Pros

    i enjoyed the working environment and the direct managers on the floor. We had a loose dress code which i enjoyed and good people.

    Cons

    They pushed through the work we had that I and many others were laid off all at once despite new work being available soon. PTO is the only thing you get no other time off if you take it without PTO you can get written up.

    Advice to Management

    Change your PTO standard you need more then what is given to make it realistic. At the very least give a large amount all at once so that people who plan things out and maintain the time don't get punished for being good employees.
