    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time

    Pros

    Awesome people, a leadership team that is always trying to do the right thing, culture of fun, lots of opportunities for advancement, open door policy, everyone always open to constitutive feedback, treats everyone like family

    Cons

    Loyal to its people to a fault sometimes. It’s ok to make people changes to transform and sometimes some people don’t realize they need a change so it ends up being a win-win

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, congrats on the recent gender diversity promotions, transformation is hard but consistency and determination will ensure the 100-year journey and vision of the company!

    Pros

    The people make Long View. From the very top of the company right the way down, there is a willingness to help and work together to make your work and personal life better. The company are winning new business all the time, and you feel that you’re part of something awesome!

    Cons

    There’a not much that I would class as a negative, though I haven’t had much in the way of management or training, which isn’t a major issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing

    People across all branches want to help and support each other. Lots of offerings to help clients. Dozens of talented resources.

    I worked at Long View Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are interested in your personal development - excellent growth and learning opportunities. Working with the brand new technologies. The compensation package is good and you'll get a share of the profit you generate (you better generate it).

    Cons

    Sales matter, technology people are disposable. If you're not related to sales, consider yourself a subcontractor: you're expected to work on your projects, submit time reports and not bother upper management with your existence. No team meetings, you won't know what your peers are working on (unless you are on same project), all the branch meetings are about sales and profits.
    They preach care about people but if there's slowdown and you do not bring profit or you messed up somebody's sales - you'll be disposed of without any mercy and your name will never be heard, often you'd find out that the person is gone only when email bounces back.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do what you preach.

    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Opportunities if you are self-driven. Flexible work hours. Leadership is outcome-focused, they are not punch-clock monitors. Always trying to stay on top of the cutting edge and be competitive. great culture and lots of fun activities and social engagements. The new CEO is great and every senior leader I've interacted with is approachable and smart. Best HR team I have ever worked with!

    Cons

    every company has them - there are some toxic people that have carved out their value and will likely never be challenged. Luckily most of them are not in leadership.
    Occasionally I do see decisions from the executive team that feel like short term thinking, for example emergency cost cutting during a rough quarter, but that seems to be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    None
