    I worked at Preferred Systems Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is easily accessible and caring. Often reaches out to its employees to see how they're doing and if they can be of any assistance. Happy to ensure employees get the training they request. Very good pay and organized fun events for employees.

    Cons

    Depending on the site an employee works at, facetime with PSS management can be limited, outside of scheduled meetings, events, and occasional site visits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work trying to plan more employee events and gatherings. All the events that I attended were enjoyable.

    Pros

    The incentive package is ridiculous, to top insult to injury, the owners have cashed out $100's of Millions selling the company recently, while employees are busting their behind for pennies, left wondering now what.. wow!

    Cons

    Where do you start - a company that;s bragging about selling for hundreds of millions, while neglecting earn outs to employees that got them there -

    Advice to Management

    Include all employees in the cash out ...the employees made you Millionaires!

    Pros

    None. Keep seeing news articles on PSS selling for $100's of Millions, the management cashing out Millions - what about the dedicated Employees that got PSS there?

    Cons

    What can you say, the management cash out Millions and the Employees are left to deal with the uncertainty of their future .. nice reward for dedication, loyalty, hard work!

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth, at a minimum extend employees something for making you Millions..

    I worked at Preferred Systems Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a select few people in the company that make you go starry eyed. These individuals are becoming more rare. I can't say I was any more impressed and happy with my direct manager than I have ever been before.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a lot of turnover. My project turned over 8 in a year. Losing the key person that held the flood gates shut from the VP/CEO of the company to hard nose everyone. Salary negotiations are terrible and there will be snubs. There are no cross project transfers to liven things up.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep your guys. People shouldn't feel like chips that can be lost.

    Pros

    The company is willing to offer growth opportunities as long as you make it clear what you would like to do in the future. They offer tuition/certification reimbursement, which is a big plus.

    Cons

    More tuition reimbursement would be nice, but understandable that it's not possible in this economy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal advancement, hire more "worker bees" and grow them into newer roles - the company is already doing a lot of this, but can always use more!

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with! No micomanaging; do your job and you will not be "bothered". Decent benefits. Most people who call are extremely polite and grateful for our help. This helps make this a very LOW stress job!

    Cons

    NO communication at all! NO face to face evaluations, reviews, etc. Project Manager is basically invisible until he passes out gift cards for meeting or exceeding your performance goals. This causes HIGH stress for everyone. Also, no accountability. No one in a supervisory role who can deal with behavioral issues - afraid HR will come down on them.

    Advice to Management

    Any advice is probably too late now....most feel they would not have listened anyway.

    Pros

    A good solid company to for. The right mix of corporate support and mid level management. Great program managers to work with. Exceptional people to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The only negative comment is not about PSS, but DOD contracting in general. Feels very insecure at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Business development needs to be the highest priority, followed by helping employees maintain ongoing confidence in business prospects.

    Pros

    Regularly interact with upper management.
    Good potential for career growth.
    Management understands that the company rises and falls with its employees.

    Cons

    Because it's government work, you can only count on work until your contract is re-bid.
