    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees are generally focused on the company's mission - Helping Government Serve the People. Very professional and purposeful environment in that regards. Top Executives of the company are very strong/competent and convey a consistently real and inspiring message

    Cons

    Company grew very fast in ACA (Obamacare) environment and thru acquisitions, which provided growth opportunities for many but also diluted alignment to overall company culture. Some administrative functions still need to mature, as they sometimes make seemingly easy/routine requests harder than they should be.

    I worked at MAXIMUS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits to working with Maximus was the paid holidays off, the location in downtown Chicago, and the experience working towards helping families. It's was a great platform to expand my skills. The experience and knowledge I did gain led me to a better opportunity elsewhere.

    Cons

    The majority of the management team was anything but professional. This specific project was like high school. There was a lot of gossip regarding which co-workers were sleeping together, who wore what, and why things are done the way they were.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider treating your employees with respect. Just because they don't qualify to get paid minimum wage doesn't mean they don't have anything to offer.
