    Pros

    I have very much enjoyed my time at Longview. I have worked for 3 major corporations and find very few negative elements from Longview. These are only the start of some of the reasons why I love my job here and have no plans or considerations to leave. I could list so many more, but these are my top reasons. Support from management for work life balance Support to achive and excede goals set for us Opportunities to show skill, involvement on teams, open to discussions of options and ideas Supportive to growth with in company Solid benefits

    Cons

    Being in a satallite office we do not get some of the perks the HQ offices have. Of course not all personalities mesh, but where will they? I honestly have seen very few cons. I do have to say I do have a laptop that is slower than a snail and have no hopes of a new ones anytime soon, besides that I can not complain.

    Advice to Management

    The management team has done a great job thus far, I look forward to continue my time here at Longview and enjoy the time I have been here. Keep listening to the employees and keep the communications open with in the company.

    Pros

    Good company to learn multitude of skills, from development to project management.

    Cons

    Lays off its development staff. No consistency because of frequent turnover

    Advice to Management

    Develop a standard product should be the focus. Minimize building solutions from scratch, which is the frequenr cause of projects going over budget

    Pros

    Flexible culture, management trust employees, very nice people in general, good products pros outweigh the cons for sure

    Cons

    Closed minded and old fashioned approach to software. Lack of stronger sales methodologies. Bizzare relationship with parent company. A software company that thinks like a consulting firm.

    Advice to Management

    1. Modernize internal processes. Internal communications are lacking. 2. Improve sales and marketing.

    Good work life balance and competitive salaries. Great atmosphere and great people to work with. Free coffee and cheap vending machines.

    The company has been bought and sold several times over the past few years leading to significant cutbacks and layoffs.
