    Pros

    It good opportunity to get into the technology sector of the Financial Industry.

    Cons

    Such a lack of culture and leadership. I didn't see many employees taken care of. When they built their new office building they bought chairs and used cubicle walls from the 1970's (seriously they were hideous) Just an overall indication of how projects and people were taken care of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apprectiate your employees and offer some benefits that show you care.

    Very Political Company

    I worked at Automated Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to get a year or two of initial experience at, they are comfortable hiring junior developers, and developers with only legacy experience.
    Lot's of room to create and expand your role if you are a self-starter.
    Company activities included golf outings and grill outs for new sales.

    Cons

    Non-management communication doesn't seem to be encouraged or approved of, the dress code is archaic, some of the management is threatened by suggestions and change, if you are a software developer, you may have to create your own position. I have seen developers on board a few weeks without receiving tasks or direction get fired for not doing anything. Management will try to get you to work overtime, and I've seen a developer lied to about receiving payment for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try harder to break the hierarchy and politics and open communication with all members of the company. Consider looking at different ways of structuring software development, as the current team structure is dysfunctional.

    Pros

    PTO. Laid back. Very easy work.

    Cons

    Management. No room for growth. Absolutely no communication, either internal or external. Will not consider any ideas for improvement. Doesn't take advantage of employees' skills. High turnover rateJ

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management.

    I have been working at Automated Systems full-time

    Pros

    Company is small enough it relies on the abilities of employees without "siloing". Most employees enjoy the freedom to wear many hats with varied responsibilities. Keeps the work interesting and fresh with opportunities. Very much a family / loyalty atmosphere.

    Cons

    Usual corporate structure challenges facing companies of this size. Sometimes difficult to offer career advancement. Could improve HR awareness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the benefits of an incentive plan as a cost-effective method to increase employee retention.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE

    I have been working at Automated Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since it is a smaller company (about 100 employees), a lot of time doesn't need to be wasted to get decisions from management. No extra red tape and superficial manager levels here. In my experience while working at the company, I found employees to be compensated for their dedication and their willingness to do what it takes to get the job done right while providing good customer service. Those employees that did the minimum - were compensated in a similar manner. I enjoyed the technology focused mission.

    Cons

    The company wasn't able to provide as many benefits as compared to much larger corporations such as at work daycare and health club memberships.

    Pros

    Very smart engineers that support community banks. High precision and excellent customer service are emphasized when training new employees. Employees and management reallt care about the customer.

    Cons

    As with many small to mid-sized compaies, salary and benefits are always an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be a more results-oriented company. Reward those who produce marketable results.

    Work hard, stand out get noticed

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE

    I have been working at Automated Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and rapport with management if you work hard and stand out as an employee. Great opportunities to learn and grow with or without a degree. Meet alot of versatile people not only as co-workers but also at community banks. Travel is relaxed and not very stringent with expense policy. I am a true believer that you cannot walk into a job and instantly expect bonuses, big raises and tons of benefits, if you want them work hard for them and the reward will be excellent. If you are not a stand out employee the management has not reason to recognize you.

    Cons

    Small company does equate to more expensive benefits. Additional vacation could be offered on multiple levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the benefits that could be offered that don't cost the company much if anything. Flex time, casual days things like that.

    I worked at Automated Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Many nice people, could be a good entry level job to gain experience.

    Cons

    Poor management, low salaries, expensive benefits and NO vacation your first year, negative environment, very low employee morale. There is no one (i.e. HR) to advocate for the employee so you might feel "stuck" if you have an issue with another coworker or manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horses and treat your employees with respect. Pay them better, offer better benefits, and hire a Human Resources manager to advocate for your employees. If you demand respect, you need to give respect - it goes both ways!
