    Pros

    Because we create custom software for demanding customers, it feels like we're always pushing our limits to be more creative and cutting-edge. This makes the work interesting, and I never get bored.

    Cons

    It's a steep learning curve and that is overwhelming for some people.

    Pros

    There's potential for improvement in this group.

    Cons

    Software dev group is bunch of technically incompetent people who act like they know it all. Their projects dates back to the classic asp and decade old VC++. Deadlines are unrealistic and makes overall atmosphere boring. Forget about the promised incentive percentage, in reality its not even close to what they advertise. Their business analysts are joke.

    I have been working at Bastian Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management is always open to trying new technologies and/or new processes to improve things. The company has assembled a great team and we get to work on very interesting projects. You’re never on “auto pilot” or looking for work to keep busy while working at Bastian. Everyone is dedicated to helping our customers, expanding our product along with bettering employee knowledge and experience along the way. Employees are given the vision and the tools/space to get the work done. It’s very rewarding to help our customers stay competitive in their respective industries. If you work hard and excel in your work you are rewarded (both the intrinsic reward of a job well done and financially).

    Cons

    I love coming to work every day but not all people like a fast paced and challenging environment. If you don’t have a passion for your career choice then you should look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The company is filled with lots of extremely talented and hard working professionals. The company rewards its employees and encourages the entrepreneurial spirit. Teamwork and collaboration are the norm. Bastian Solutions is unique in the sense that it is a large, growing company, yet still retains so many of the great qualities of a small, family business. It’s a really fun place to work!

    Cons

    None. Bastian Solutions is an outstanding company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. The management team is very approachable and receptive to new ideas.

    I worked at Bastian Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment. As long as your getting your stuff done on time management will leave you alone and not worry too much about what time you get to work or that you took a long lunch. Great opportunity to work for a company out of college and get training and experience for future endeavors.

    Cons

    Very high turn over rate. Average engineer is 2 years out of college or less and typical employment lasts about 2 years or less. Senior management states there will be a 10% salary bonus based on project success but no one has ever come close to making this number (this is a very common complaint amongst employees). They are a very cost conscious company who does whatever it takes to save as much money as possible. During the summer of 2012 the office personnel went the entire summer without AC and were told to bring fans because they didn't want to pay to have the AC unit fixed. Outside temps were in the mid 90s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't mislead prospective employes by stating they will make 10% extra on their salary to offset the generally low base amount. Also spending more money on things that keep employees happy and productive goes along way to retaining experienced individuals.
