    Pros

    Nice office. Nice landscaping I guess.

    Cons

    Weekend work/Saturday was expected. Use the quarterly bonus and yearly "trip" that only select employees get to go on, to leverage down your salary and work weekends, then when you receive the bonus it's a fraction of what they offered. They even say "most get that amount or more." Claimed mine would be $10,000/yr, and the first quarterly check was a few hundred dollars. Don't buy into the bonus thing. Atmosphere was very oppressive. Luckily, my previous job came back to me and I left this nightmare. Probably the worst health benefits I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    What management? Upper management sits together and makes each other feel important. My boss was there for years and acted invincible.

    Pros

    Very sharp people and very focused on value. Mainline engineering is second to none and their follow through is good

    Cons

    Very mainframe centric. Hard to sell anything else and only from the IBM playbook - but they are good at that.

    I have been working at Mainline Information Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. I can bring home a paycheck and access to benefits. Work with great people at the home office.

    Cons

    Told us "no raises" and in the same breath tell us we've had the best first quarter in years. Management doesn't care. Owner has checked out. Executive team seems more concerned with portraying this face of success to the outside sales team and tells home office how we must continue to cut expenses. Doesn't replace employees after they quit. Burdens current employees with more and more duties without compensation. Everyone is miserable and suspicious.

    Advice to Management

    A happy worker works harder. Stop being so secretive and greedy.

    Pros

    Top notch people with excellent skills. Very cooperative environment. Excellent reputation with their customers and suppliers.

    Cons

    They have forgotten what has customers bringing them to the table. They have big ideas about some of the new buzzword technologies and are investing heavily in those areas while letting some top people go.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the top people you have that are Mainline's DNA to help transition into new businesses instead of knee-jerk moves.
