I have been working at Senior Systems full-time (More than 8 years)
I've been with the company for many years and never would have stayed if there weren't advancement opportunities or if the working environment wasn't professional and rewarding. This is a small company that has grown with its product as well as its leadership. If you are a dedicated worker and apply yourself you will be rewarded appropriately. The people who advance here are the ones who see issues and come up with solutions and work as a team or individually to resolve problems. They don't sit back and complain about everything and take no action. They also don't do the bare minimum or cut corners at every turn. The employees who advance, deserve to advance. This company is conveniently located, has a beautiful corporate office, has matching 401K and other valuable benefits, has a niche in the market and is constantly adding value to it's product. There are many veteran employees and many new employees that make for a great mix of ideas and wisdom.
With all small companies there have been a lot of 'growing pains'. Some very large projects were started and then cancelled. Although there were valid business reasons to change direction, I don't believe those reasons were adequately communicated to the employees and that caused unrest. I do believe that the company is headed in the right direction now and that communication has improved greatly in the last year.
Advice to Management
Some department managers are wonderful at acknowledging their employees and recognizing the hard work that they do, but this is not company wide. Although many of the 'under performers' have been let go, there are still some employees that cause more problems than they provide value, this can be very difficult for the employees that work hard. So, please fairly evaluate your employees and don't be afraid to cut ties with an employee that isn't benefiting the company, the customers or their team.
Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Senior Systems in November 2014.
I sent my resume in response to an online posting, and received an email reply from the Talent Acquisition Mgr to set up a phone interview. The phone conversation went very well. We discussed the details of the position, as well as my background and experience relative to the position. A formal interview was then scheduled for later that week. When I arrived I was greeted by a very friendly and professional receptionist, and I met with the Product Support Mgr as well as the Talent Acquisition Mgr I had spoken with. I was very impressed with how professional the building and office looked. I was happy to be asked about my technical skills and experience with software and customer support, as other interviews I've had with other companies seemed to focus on just personality type silly questions or goofy trick questions. I want to be asked about skills that would matter, make a difference and prove successful for the position (technical skills/customer relations) and I was; so this was a very straightforward, direct, and great interview! As a result of this interview, I got such a positive vibe from this company as a whole!
- All very good and thoughtful questions related to the position. There were no silly personality tests, no game playing or goofy trick questions. Very positive experience. Answer Question
