      I have been working at Systems Engineering Services Corporation full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The right long term opportunity at a great client site. Salary's great for the market. Support staff is extremely helpful and responsive to questions and concerns. The account manager makes it a point to communicate frequently and at the same time letting me do my job for the client without too much admin overhead.

      Cons

      Health coverage and time off. Healthcare coverage for my family is a huge expense per pay and does not cover as much as it could: I still have to pay a lot out of pocket for what the plan does not cover. Time off is limited. 2 wks is std for the industry I suppose, but tough to plan around. For example, there's no time off for jury duty until after 2 years. I had to take time out of my 2 weeks off when I was called. All...

      Advice to Management

      I know healthcare costs are tough to manage and that SESC does it's best in shopping around, but finding a way to reduce the cost for family coverage would be a big help. Also offering more time off would be a great plus

      I worked at Systems Engineering Services Corporation for less than a year

      Pros

      Friendly staff as long as your making them money.

      Cons

      Company claims to "Do the right thing", what they should say is the right thing for their company. They have no problem with retaliation against their workers and actually participate in it. Anything to keep their contract with a client with no regards to how it affects the worker.

      Advice to Management

      Stand by your supposed company policies. If you say you treat workers like family then do that. Unless your idea of family is to secretly end someone's assignment knowing they ate the sole support of a child with epilepsy. Way to go SESC.

      I have been working at Systems Engineering Services Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      roles for the company with varying degrees of responsibility. One of the things that I always tell people what I have liked most about the company and what has kept me here for so long is that I have NEVER been asked or implied to make a decision or judgment that has not been based in integrity, honesty and support of the staff. Upper management has always responded to requests for advice with "What do you think is...

      Cons

      The cost of dependent coverage is higher than it ever has been, but you do get what you pay for. The company expects. no demands professionalism and quality work, both from its consultants and internal staff. If this isn't you than this isn't the place for you.

      Advice to Management

      Possibly better communications about the Health care and all benefits

      Pros

      SESC offers a true work/life balance. Management is very flexible if you need time for your family or an unforeseen reason. This company is a breath of fresh air compared to other staffing firms I have worked with. Management and ownership truly care about their employees. Employees are empowered to be more and grow with the organization. Its truly an organization where you are in control of your own professional trajectory....

      Personally, i have a long commute into the office. It would be nice if the office was closer, but its worth the drive.

      Pros

      Working for SES almost 10 years, I have found the company totally committed to their staff and clients. Management has always strived to provide great assignments in good working environments that both challenge and satisfy a persons skills and capabilities. I like that the company culture has strong values, open communication and a genuine interest in the future of its employees. This is why I have rejoined SES after...

      SES has a very thorough vetting process for new hires that sometimes seems to take forever.

      Pros

      The Pros are that the Owners are finally seeing that their business model from the 80's is not working and they are closing offices.

      Cons

      -Cadillac Benefits as you are told will cost you over $1500.00 out of pocket to cover your family. -The Owners seem proud to tell you that they have went through 15 plus recruiter in 12 months...not to mention they only have 5 recruiters in 4 offices. -Solution based company...no solution based projects sold in 12 months, no solutions delivery model that works...no reps selling solutions or project - a staff aug company...
