    I worked at Long View Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A company with positive vision, and they mean well. Many great people at this company around North America. A good place to earn your spurs in the industry. Average compensation but unequal, raises do not even match inflation.

    Cons

    Power remains in Calgary, and local branches and generally treated like outcasts. The Career Life Planning program is all talk, while it has been successful for many in the past it is all talk now.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation raises must at a minimum cover inflation, support the aspirations of your employees better. Fix your failing culture fast, it was your key to previous success.

    I worked at Long View Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, a people services department which is truly engaged and represents the company value system. I liked working with my immediate peer.

    Cons

    Marketing is treated as a service desk for fixing powerpoints, creating one page PDFs, and organizing event registrations rather than as a strategic asset. The organization (at least from my lens) felt top heavy on management - where efficiency improvements often meant adding more managers to review my work rather than people helping with the actual workload. Occasionally it would take months to approve something because...

    Advice to Management

    Less strategy and more doing. If a typical work day for a middle manager consists of 8 hours of meetings- something's probably not right.
