    Pros

    Andesa places a great emphasis on taking care of its employees. This sentiment begins at the Board of Directors and is emphasized by both Senior and Middle Management as decisions are made that shape the employee environment.

    Cons

    Andesa supports web applications that require 24x7 availability, but does not staff for 24x7 coverage. Therefore, many employees are involved in an after-hours, on-call rotation to ensure the availability of the applications.

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, highly ethical culture, intelligent and capable coworkers, good work-life balance, excellent management team, and many interesting technical challenges

    Cons

    Small company with limited financial resources providing services to extremely large and demanding insurance companies and brokerages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When recruiting new employees, look for people with high intellect, breadth of knowledge, and flexibility rather than focusing on specialized skill sets. Encourage employees to cross train and contribute to various areas of the company. Also, put as much energy as possible into trying to attract new investors and new customers.

    I have been working at Andesa Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are many pros (e.g. bright, helpful people; challenging work; good pay and benefits; solidly ethical stand) but the best thing about Andesa is that I'm seen by management as a real person... not merely a "human resource". Upper-level management (all the way up to the owners) care about us as people who have real lives.

    Cons

    Our clients often are not sure what they really want or need, which leads to scope creep and other frustrating conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employee-client-shareholder triangle well balanced, and never forget that the ends do NOT justify the means.

    Pros

    Andesa Services has good company values, great benefits, helpful co-workers and nice office space. Communication/socialization is encouraged for both work related items and also for special events such as the company picnic, Andesa on the Move, chili cookoff and holiday party. Andesa Services supports giving back to the community by giving employees the opportunity to volunteer in Andesa's monthly commitments with Meals on Wheels and Backpack Buddies programs. Andesa Services doesn't just care about the financial number - their clients (partnerships), their employees and their shareholders are all important.

    Cons

    The advancement opportunities are limited.

    Not your typical company in that the environment is laid back and promotes a relaxed atmosphere to perform duties.

    Pros

    this company seeks out win-win-win opportunities. Management seeks out the best opportunity for its employees, clients, and shareholders. with that being said the employee benefits are very much above average. 40k is better than other companies.... Great place to get your feet wet and gain industry knowledge.

    Cons

    work hours are not ideal. m-f 9-6. this is a niche company so coming in you have to start from scratch to learn the jargon and software applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer earlier start times/end times to client services department.

    Great company

    I have been working at Andesa Services

    Pros

    Andesa is a great place to work. The company is very focused on the employees. Employees have a lot of flexibility and freedom to do their job. The work environment is family oriented and pleasant. Management does a good job of informing employees about what is going on. This is one of the most open places I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Andesa is growing and changing. Change is unsettling at times.

    VERY OLD SCHOOL AND CONSERVATIVE.

    I have been working at Andesa Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are better than most. The development staff is high quality.

    Cons

    No flexibility in certain areas of management. Lots of favoritism - a few individuals are allowed to have special privileges which are then abused, but without consequence, while the rest of us have a strong work ethic without the same privileges or appreciation. Very demotivating. Very frustrating.

    Religion also plays a big part in the company. SUPER conservative.

    No real anonymity in surveys so we have to be very careful not to give away our division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no point in advice as nothing will ever change with certain members of management that are in denial.
