I worked at Online Business Systems

Pros

Management is committed to creating a partnership with their clients and their staff consultants. Everyone is highly competent; it really brings out the best in your own abilities and attitude. A Career Mentor is assigned every employee and stays active with that employee to the employee's satisfaction. Great benefits and pay. I just can't say enough good things about being an "Onliner".

Cons

As a consulting firm, you will be working on a project for some other business. So while Online is wonderful, the client culture may zap your energy. Many of the projects are staffed with several Onliners or can be worked remotely from the Online office; so sometimes the culture encountered during work hours reflects Online's principles but not always.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue the good, solid work of making the Portland office a leading center of excellence in the Northwest. I think there could be some consideration of sponsoring events, lectures, etc. to do more to get the Online Business Systems name better known.

    Pros

    Great place to work, specially if you like working remotely. Greet place for beginners.

    Cons

    Working remotely all the time means less interaction with other colleague, sometime that is boring too.

    Pros

    Online makes the extra effort to bring great people into their organization. This results in a flourishing working environment. The personal development program is excellent and well structured. They are a flexible employer with opportunities for all levels of employees to advance their careers.

    Cons

    I think the career mentor system works, however, the number of career mentors and qualification criteria for CM's needs to be re-evaluated. I had both ends of the spectrum in terms of CM's.

    Sometimes you can feel a bit disconnected from Online when you're on a client site for long engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part, keep up the good work. Maintain a focus on maintaining Online's great culture. This is apparent in the Central Region, but needs to be improved in the Alberta Region.
