I worked at American Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

This was a great company to contract for. Salary was paid on-time, and the team I worked with was amazing. Unfortunately at the time, the branch this company held in Atlanta was closed. I would work for this company again if the opportunity presented itself.

Cons

The branch in Atlanta closed due to loss, or lack of work. This could be tied to one of the former employess, who stole work for his new startup. This was unfortunate for everyone involved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, lack of micro managing from supervisor. The ESOP provides 9% of additional retirement income each year. Bonus program for execs is very generous. Very competitive pay. CEO is approachable and friendly and genuinely engaged. Great PTO package with 9 floating holidays to use at your discretion.

    Cons

    Senior leaders have been with the company for 20-30 years leaving lots of reluctance for change. Although the company is very steady and dependable, we haven't experienced significant organic growth in years. Apathy is the company's biggest weakness. Benefits are extremely expensive and PPO plan being phased out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication to middle management is improving. However, middle management lacks people skills and often does not communicate to staff. Middle managers need to be held accountable for inability to manage rather than being allowed to stay in their positions simply because they have a certification, a relationship with a customer, or tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its really great that employees have easy access to the Management team to pass along ideas and suggestions which often become actions within the company -- keep this up.
