I have been working at Open Systems International full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I joined Open Systems after school got out this summer. I have to say the company has a nice building and the social activities are awesome. The cafeteria is too expensive but the nachos are the BEST! They say we are growing.

Cons

Other than that it's a job. I used to work in a lab at school and its alot like that. There is more hardware and that can get to be to much - if you let it get to you.

    I worked at Open Systems International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Free soda: they have free soda in the office which I don't know if it is good or bad. I have seen some developers drunk 25 + cans a day.
    - very self-driven work environment - New hires pretty much learn as they go on the jobs, but you do get a lot of supports from other engineers because they have been in the same shoes not long ago.
    - have opportunities to learn many different things

    Cons

    - lack of standards
    - Upper management teams don't care about employees. Upper management team are really into micromanaging.
    - low pay high stress. Engineers average have about four to five projects at the same time. They work average 55 hours or up per weeks. They work even more when you are on site with the clients.
    - Upper managers don't really care about work and life balance. Example: Friend of mine traveled 3 weeks back to back to back straight. They will always fly you out on Sundays and fly you back on Fridays or Saturdays. You really don't get to pick your hotel because they will pick the cheapest hotel (sometime motels) for the business trip. You have to use your own credit cards to book flights and hotels for the trip upfront.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please care about the people.
    If you can't maintain the people, the company will not go far for long.

    I have been working at Open Systems International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company seems to like to have a good time. It give away sodas, The work is on the tough side but a technician can learn a lot. If you like travel you can get all you want. The company is growing and is in a new building.

    Cons

    If you do not like travel you might get pressed to travel anyway. New hires are getting really intense training I didn't when I started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training for all new hires.
