    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.

    I worked at Preferred Systems Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Location is close to 495. metro lines, bus routes, and numerous restaurants in surrounding area in Tyson's Corner, VA. Company is growing with multiple acquisitions.

    Cons

    I was employed with PSS for over a year and during my time there the company experienced the loss of over 20 employees and 76% of these employees willing resigned from their roles! This is a big red flag and indicator for what the work environment is like! Also, many of the former employees were very unhappy/dissatisfied with management and management styles.

    Advice to Management

    Establish better training methods to set up your employees for success. Treat your employees with respect. Lead by example. Value your employees.

    Pros

    Experience for your resume. Good temporary position until you find something else. There is very little good to say about PSS.

    Cons

    High turnover, very low salaries, no training, management will give no guidance and throw you under the bus if they mess up. Very tense work environment since many people are unhappy and many are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees fairly and treat them well

    Pros

    Competitive salary - good benefits - challenging work.

    Gone through a lot of acquisitions in the last year or so. Still trying to figure out all of the different types of work that we do!

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunity to meet people on other projects.

    Pros

    They pay well. Well stocked café. They try to create a fun culture.

    Cons

    This is a company that is in the midst of an identity crisis. They want to be a tier one federal contractor. They are really a staffing agency.

    Advice to Management

    Redefine your management positions than let the managers manage their teams. Having people in charge who are not really in charge breeds resentment amongst your worker bees.

    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.
