    I have been working at Longview Solutions

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    In my team we can be flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    The people in my team work quite hard. Most are still there at 6:30. This puts pressure on me to also stay late as I dont want to be the first person leaving everyday.

    A great place to work.

    • Work/Life Balance

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Longview Solutions

    Pros

    Here are a few of the reasons Longview is a great place to work:

    -It's one of few software companies to truly respect the work-life balance.
    -It's small enough that your ideas are heard and you are empowered to make a difference, but not too small that you feel trapped with nowhere to go.
    -While the company is small, its product is so good that it can go up against the "megavendors" in corporate performance management (CPM): Oracle, SAP, Cognos---and (often) win.

    Cons

    Because the corporate financial software industry isn't very glamourous, Longview is not a "household name" like Apple or Google, so telling your friends where you work is often met with blank looks and vague replies like, "Oh, that's cool."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about some snacks (chips, cookies, snack-size chocolate bars) in addition to the coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the lounge?
