    I worked at REJIS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    REJIS was a good company to work for. If you're a competent tech, then there is always room to move up to senior tech positions. You get to work on some pretty big systems, which is valuable on the resume. The people working in the IT departments were easy to work with, and always willing to help each other out. They are extremely flexible with schedule and willing to work with you as long as you put in your hours. Mid level management was easy to work with, and did a good job of listening to what you had to say.The best things about working there were the 3 weeks vacation, holidays, 9% contribution to pension, and the people you work with. I would have never left the company if they were able to compete with the salaries and benefits that other companies were offering for the same position.

    Cons

    They are not competitive with salary, so they end up losing most of their Sr level techs. There are no bonuses, and the raises aren't too great. The health insurance is pretty terrible, and was getting worse every year before I left. The HR department messes up a lot, so anything they work on needs to be double checked. You can't believe a lot of what the CEO/GM says in the company meetings. He makes it seem like he's taking an open book approach, but in actuality he's usually just saying what people want to hear.

    Advice to Management

    1. Start compensating your Sr level techs better to keep them around. You need a good balance of experience to help train the new, fresh out of college guys REJIS typically hires. Ensuring your new techs are trained properly and have someone to fall back to with questions will help improve your customer satisfaction.

    2. The GM should be more straight forward. There were quite a few times when he told us one thing in a meeting, and did something to contradict what he told us within a few weeks.

    Pros

    Great exposure to technology. They give great opportunities to learn and grow

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low for the position and responsibilities. A lot of entrenched staff doing things the way they were done 30 years ago with no interest in changing.

    Pay more for your talented\experienced employees.

    I worked at REJIS (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place for a young single person to grow and learn IT. I learned so much during my time at REJIS. I loved the work and the people there.

    Cons

    The benefits are the reason that I left REJIS. The health insurance and compensation were not even close to other businesses.

    Advice to Management

    The benefits need to be addressed. Hopefully they have been addressed since I left there.

    Management is not very tech savvy. They are micromanaging a lot which leads to other issues down the road.

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

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn new technologies
    Given much freedom to implement new technology
    THE BEST 401k... 9% of pay regardless of what you contribute
    Paid training and tuition reimbursement
    Upper Management easy to talk to and you can have influence over a situation as a result
    Reviews and corresponding Raises were what you made of them... the more effort and hard work put in throughout the year would be rewarded with a much better review / raise.

    Cons

    Only health insurace offering is an HSA plan with an etremely high deductible

    Advice to Management

    Consider combining the Network Services and Application Development divisions back under the same Director... The teams would work much better together

    Pros

    - Stable work environment
    - Lots of different technology to work with
    - 3 weeks paid vacation to start with

    Cons

    - Not a lot of upward movement unless you want to be management
    - Slow work pace
    - Health care is expensive

    Advice to Management

    - Reward your employees with higher pay, more of them will stick around.
    - Employees should be recognized for their hard work. The rewards reporting system is broken.
