    I worked at American Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not many....ESOP is great if the company does well.

    Cons

    - Lied about the length of time on a contract. Said we were safe for five years of guaranteed work, a week later, gave 3 months notice because the contract was going away and everybody was being let go. Then had the audacity to say we were lucky they even told us. Had no crtieria for choosing who stayed and who went other than personal preference by the program manager and seniors.

    - Lied during interview about chances to promote and progress. After first day of work it was apparent there was nowhere to go.

    - Massive difference in pay between people who did the work and the people who sat around. $40k - $50k difference....

    - Threatened employees because employees were trying to make better choices for their own careers.

    - Place was ran like a high school, mainly because 70% of the place were young females. Lots of gossip and trash talk behind other peoples backs.

    - Employee evaluations were a joke. Conducted by individuals who you might have met once during in-processing and never saw again until you were laid off.

    - Didn't get to choose hours. They simply gave you the work hours they wanted without negotiation or any say on your part, which could mean working from Sunday-Friday or Wed - Sat or any combination of days. Could be five days a week 8 hours a day or it could be 4 days a week 10 hour days. Could be graveyard, could be daytime, could be night time. One person had to quit because she coudln't work the hours and take care of her kids and there was no budging by the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your people. Don't lie during the interview just to get people on the contract asap. Don't have unrealistic expectations. Don't be hypocrticial about who you punish and write up simply because you know them. Favoritism will kill this company. Adjust your PTO standards base on the contract and the subs benefits. It's pretty disheartening and upsetting seeing a sub-contractor doing the same work make 5 hours of PTO each pay period when ASC personnel make 3. Don't lie and say the company is doing great and then lay off a bunch of people the next week. INCLUDE SOME SICK TIME, even if it's two days! You save one day of PTO for 2 months, get sick or hurt, and that day is gone.
