    I worked at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The People, the company fosters a family type enviorment. It comes from the Top (Sam) and has a Trickle down effect to the production employees.

    Cons

    Very little chance to move up in the Sateelite Office in DC

    I have been working at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay (with overtime), 401k, IRA, Employee stock purchase.

    Cons

    Management has gotten really bad over the past couple of years, anybody can become a department manager anymore even with zero experience of knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Hire knowledgeable people from the production floors and promote them instead of always pushing them down, no room for advancement makes people want to leave.

    I have been working at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Approachable management, continuous recognition of personal performance and milestones, clean and healthy working conditions, friendly people throughout the business, receptivity to my ideas, good opportunities to apply my expertise creatively, long history of business stability, ethical senior leaders and solid business growth.

    Cons

    As with many organizations, health costs have been steadily creeping up. Bonus programs need a refresh - the concept of a bonus once a year is outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The production environment lets you keep your head down and do your work without human interaction... if that's your kind of thing. Free Phillies tickets are given away.

    Cons

    Quotas are raised to unattainable levels, and employees are subtly threatened that they will lose their jobs if they do not meet them (regardless of years of service, or any other variable). Production supervisors act like hall monitors and yell at employees for talking. It can be degrading.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect. There are better methods to motivate your employees than by fear alone.

    Pros

    Challenging environment where you have the opportunity to contribute, learn and grow. President is ethical, smart and focused. Pleasant working environment.

    Cons

    Almost of the hourly employees are women and almost all of the executives are men.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom for creative and skilled IT professionals working on various projects, room for advancement and training. Working from home. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Confused business and project managers with little or no directions given to developers straggling with constantly changing requirements. Very hard to get job done often with lots of frustration, taking way much longer time than needed. Lots of incompetent bureaucrats and ever expanding bureaucracy. Slow in accepting new technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more skilled and passionate IT professionals and less bureaucrats. Engage currently employed folks in creative way. Stay away from consultants and dotCom expansion in business.

    I worked at Reed Technology & Information Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stability and security, better defined requirements, mostly skilled developers, good pension plans.

    Cons

    New unqualified technical management without understanding of production processes and needs. Luck of knowledge of existing architecture, software and effort for development and maintenance. Lots of new people hired without qualifications doing little or none of the current work. Investments into always failed initiatives beside the main contract/ business. Lots of ever-growing pressure to do more of the successful but unappreciated segment of the main business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on only new initiatives, learn the main business, hire qualified technical personnel
