    Pros

    As an open environment, this company offers you all the tools and support you need to benefit yourself and the company.
    People are friendly and good natured
    The company believes and invests both in its workforce and in process improvement
    The company plays important roles in supporting government including science
    The company is proactive in recognizing excellence and rewarding it
    The vision and direction of the CEO is superb
    The company is very in touch with its humanity and desires the advancement and growth of the employees as much as the company itself

    Cons

    A lot of work is contract based, such that after a number of years or a certain amount of time you will likely have to change positions if the contract is not extended. For some people this might be a downside, however in practice this is rarely an issue. Even in cases where it is necessary, Systems Plus helps employees transition.

    I worked at Systems Plus (Maryland) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company embraced a diverse work atmosphere and showed a legitimate interest providing opportunities based on qualifications. The environment was family friendly and upper management made it a priority to ask how you were doing.

    Cons

    Directions for task and deliverables were often unclear.
    HR was not very helpful when needed.
    Compensation left much to be admired.
    High turnover rate.
    Micromanaging!!!
    Micromanaging!!!

    Advice to Management

    Continue pushing diversity forward.
    Compensate employees more. This will help with retention.
    Work on building a trusting relationship with employees.
    Run the company less like a plant/factory

    Pros

    They buy a lot of lunches....that's about it.

    Cons

    The company is not what they claim it is. They are really just a labor placement company. They claim they have 50 or more employees but in reality it is only closer to 10-15 depending on the amount of incoming work. They have a high turnover rate but try to hide it from their employees. They have a Vice President that is from China and just does not understand at all how business works in this country. If you have knowledge or ideas for business that they like, they will hire you and extract as much info from you then let you go. This company is what I call a vulture company; they prey on people who are desperate for a job. There is no upward mobility in this company at all. They don't pay any severance, and good luck getting your last expense check as well. Very bad company to work for.Benefits are horrible with the worst health insurance options. This company uses the CMMI like a bible. They are extreme micro managers and prefer everyone to work in cubicles right next to one another. There is no trustworthiness in the management at all. This all may seem like a disgruntled employee but I assure you I am not as I left on my own in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the business.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The President and Vice President are dedicated and truly care about the company. They maintain tight control of all company processes, contracts, and funding.

    Cons

    It appears that the hard work of the staff is not appreciated by the President and Vice President. I feel like an outsider; not part of the inner group because I am not a minority group.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more flexible.

    I have been working at Systems Plus (Maryland) full-time

    Pros

    Free parking. People are pleasant.

    Cons

    Overly controlled work environment. You are required to sign in and out, and also do this when/if you leave for lunch. They monitor everything. Flex time or remote work is not allowed. Employees are treated more like hourly factory workers than professionals. The salaries are lower than industry average. No room for growth. They require ties and suits, even though clients and professional meetings are very rare. Casual day is not jeans. The office environment is like the 1970s.

    Advice to Management

    Support and trust your staff. Employees will work harder when they feel that they are listened to, and when their needs are taken into account. The standard office culture of the 1970s will repel many potential applicants.
