    Pros

    Very laid back culture with awesome work-life balance. I was promoted and given above average pay increases. People go there and do not leave for a reason.

    Cons

    Definitely some micro management from the top in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flexible work from home options for IT staff that really do not need to be at the office.

    If you like complacency, where everybody is ok with status quo and low pay, CAS is the place to be!

    Former Employee - Account Manager (Sales) in Columbus, OH

    I worked at CAS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, 401K matching is superior, Time off is good, relatively nice non-management colleagues.

    Cons

    Dreadful management that make you feel like you are never good enough. Promotions occur without merit and personal growth is non-existent. CAS doesn't value you as a person but you are someone to fill an opening until they need to do it again. Mission of the company is good but being in the sales division it is clear that the mission is just a facade. If this is the only job you can get, then take it but otherwise take something else where they actually care about you. How are you going to run a sales team that has a capped total compensation (including base) at just over 100K even if they bring in a large revenue accounts!!!! Rethink it guys! New members are given inadequate training opportunities and they shuttle away good staff. My east manager was difficult and the west manager is worse and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave. Bring in new blood that understand the market and can inject new life into the company. Existing VPs and Directors are mostly in a bubble and have no concept of how their products fair against the competition. Bring in managers that actually know what the H*ll they are doing. Not some glorified sales reps.

    I worked at CAS full-time

    Pros

    Great work and life balance. Benefits are decent, but some of them are being cut off. Free parking and nice walking path along the river.

    Cons

    Excessive micromanagement, Very monotonous and repetitive work. Don't expect much of personal development and actual advancement. You work here until you die (literally).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many "middle" managers and too much bureaucracy.

    I worked at CAS

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent salaries. Good work-life balance. Friendly employees and a stable environment. Centrally located which makes it great for commuting from anywhere in the city.

    Cons

    Not a lot of innovation. A lot of unnecessary management overhead. Senior leadership can be extremely territorial and political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time cultivating a more collaborative and innovative management culture.

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Decent technology.

    I worked at CAS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - For the proactive, good opportunities to redefine roles or create new ones to meet business needs
    - Employees who are passionate about the products and services the company provides
    - Good work life balance
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Top down management with a good old boys club mentality
    - Lots of bureaucracy; difficult to affect needed changes in a timely manner
    - Professional progression fairly dependent on how well you work your internal network

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Engage employees
    - Develop leaders
    - Eliminate red tape
    - Set clear objectives; give employees the tools, resources, and authority to get things done; hold people accountable for results with an eye toward continuous improvement rather than blame; and reward successes
    - Recognize and value all strong contributors, not just of the select few
    - Encourage internal and external networking

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

    Pros

    Very low stress. A big tilt to the life side of the work/life balance equation. Generous benefits, highlighted by a first class insurance plan, generous company contribution to one's retirement and a quick path to 4 weeks of vacation.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any real problems here. However there are culture issues that will need to be worked out if the company is to continue to flourish going forward. On the one hand a better understanding of what the businesses' challenges are would be good for IT and on the other the limitations of what technology can provide need to be understood by the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a mechanism for accountability for the business in its relationship to IT. My perception is that the business can make carte blanche demands of IT with little or no consequences attached.
