Long View Systems – Why Work For Us?


Every Business is an Information Technology Business

undefined

Long View is one of the most powerful information technology services and solutions companies in North America with offices across the continent. With a clear focus on combining business and technology through our Hybrid IT methodology, Long View is able to define and customize what the future of IT looks like. Innovative, flexible, cost-effective, and business focused… that’s Long View.

Our Customers Fuel Growth

Our company’s philosophy is simple: We will strive to ensure that every one of our clients will be a reference client that will stay with us year after year, decade after decade. To do this we will offer real value and competence every day, and we will always be honest and straightforward.

Long View continues to achieve outstanding growth and profitability year after year. We have become a dominant player in the Western North American IT market based on our industry experience, successful track record, and the quality of our people and our technology partners.

Long View’s Vision of 100

When Don Bialik founded Long View in 1999, he set out to create a 100 year old company. Through keeping our integrity, continually developing our competence, adding real value to our client’s businesses, and always having fun, we will be able to accomplish his goal.

 

Long View. A career that helps you get more out of life.

Working at Long View isn’t just a means of paying the bills. It’s different here — because, as the saying goes: you can do what you love…and love what you do. Working at Long View means you can have a career that helps you get more out of life.

Long View was started in 1999 and run out of a house in the Calgary suburbs. Since those humble beginnings, Long View has grown into a company that operates on a global scale, with offices in North America and Amsterdam.

There are good reasons for our growth and success. Plenty of them, in fact. The vast majority have to do with hiring the best people, and providing them with the tools they need to excel both in their careers with Long View, and their lives outside of work.

At Long View, we create an environment of collaboration and support, of innovation and enthusiasm. We’re proud to say that we view each other as family. We’ve established a culture that’s built on Integrity, Competence, Value and Fun and that resonates through everything we do.

We’re proud of our reputation as one of North America’s most dynamic IT providers and we’re even prouder of our culture that allows our people to live life to its fullest. At Long View, we create an environment of collaboration and support, of innovation and enthusiasm. As a member of the Long View team, you’ll see how our company’s core pillars of Integrity, Competence, Value, and Fun resonate through the workplace. And you’ll be recognized and rewarded for your innovation, effort, and enthusiasm. Just a job? Not on your life.

Here’s what else to expect from a Long View career:

  • Career Life Plans (CLPs): You meet with your team leader to talk about your career, life, and training goals.
  • Exposure to emerging and advanced technologies and access to hundreds of technical experts (750+ consultants) who are shaping the future of technology every day.
  • Leadership Development Program – a program designed for future Long View leaders.
  • We don’t like to use the word “requirement,” but we ask that you take at least two to four training events each year.
  • Mentorship is a key part of our culture. Rest assured: you’ll be mentored by some of the industry’s best.
  • You’ll get to work closely with many of the top IT players in the world, such as Microsoft, Apple, HP, NetApp and Cisco.

We believe that a challenged, fulfilled employee is a happy employee. In order to support your career, we offer abundant technical and soft-skills training year-round covering the cost of most certification and development initiatives. And we make every effort to promote from within.

And where would we be without a sense of fun? It is, after all, one of our core pillars. We want everyone to enjoy themselves in the workplace and encourage attitudes that foster innovation, creativity and happiness.

Caring for Our People

We don’t just tell our staff how much we value them. We show it with an extensive benefits package, quarterly incentives and annual retirement contributions.

Additionally, we have a wide array of employee recognition programs, such as service awards and a caught in the act program. The centerpiece of our commitment to employee well-being is the Long View Career Life Plan (CLP). Our people meet regularly with their leaders to assess life achievements, career goals, trainingand marketable skills.

Everyone needs to let their hair down once in a while, and Long View makes a point of filling its employees’ social calendars. We throw some of the best corporate events around — including holiday galas, weekly get togethers and round ups.

Perhaps most importantly, we look after our people, offering support and compassion in dealing with life’s problems. Our family atmosphere has become the hallmark of our company.

What Did You Learn Today?

We don’t just pay lip service to professional employee training and development, we go out of our way to provide it. At Long View, we have our own Learning and Development group that maintains our employee development plan and actively seeks out certification opportunities, creates training programs in emerging technologies, and offers abundant technical and soft-skills training courses for our employees year-round — all on the company dime.

Technology never stands still. It is always evolving. We want to make sure we are growing and evolving at the same pace, and that’s why Long View supports employee training and development in a flexible learning environment. We offer technical, soft-skills, and leadership training through various methods — including live and remote classrooms, e-learning, webinars, conferences, mentorship, and task forces.

And, yes, career advancement is something we take very seriously. Our Leadership Development Program (LDP) is one of the programs we are most proud of. Designed around the leadership principles of vision, alignment and execution, the LDP provides classroom learning combined with peer and management discussion, practical experience, challenges, videos, games, and group activities. Lots of development, but even more importantly, lots of fun is had along the way in our leadership journeys.
