    Pros

    O'Neil has continued to grow over the years because it is a proactive and innovative organization that strives to stay competitive by finding newer, faster and better ways to improve products and services. Teamwork and communication give us this edge. Those that work here are driven and have a very strong work ethic.

    If you have worked in the printing industry, you know that there are busy periods where working extra hours is required in order to complete the clients’ jobs. The company has very generous benefits and a bonus program where a percentage of the company’s profits are shared and extra bonus for those who go above and beyond their normal job duties.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate that some disgruntled former and current employees in these reviews have not had a good experience because the company would like to see everyone succeed.

    There are many long term employees at our Los Angeles facility. The Texas facility has only been in production a few years, so like any start up, it takes a while to build the right employee base. If you want to succeed at O’Neil, you must be a self-starter. Every employee helps build the organization, and those who have a positive outlook and contribute most to the organization’s growth are the most likely to be promoted. Employees are encouraged to lead, innovate and implement ideas so that they can be successful and contribute to the growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and train employees that contribute to your team’s success and be innovative to meet our customers’ needs so that the company continues to grow.

    No promotions, unless you are part of the CEO's family
    Low Morale, people crying all the time

    Pros

    What pros, no pros at all its just a bad company to work for

    Cons

    Well when you comme for an interview, they tell you that you will work some overtime but they forget to mention that you will be working 7 days 12 hours.

    In the interview they talk about how you can move up to a better position, in reality there is no moving up. Now the people that move up in the company are either famaly members or friends of the Ceo.

    During the busy season that's from July till February, the Ceo sends out a letter stating that nobody can take days off no vecation. But you can see frequently office personal and management will take days off but other people cant.

    The company is giving monthly bonuses, but there is a catch they hire you and give u a wage that is below the standards. So when you get the bonus it gives u a little more money at the end of the month so you don't get to angry.
    They are telling you the bonuses are calculated how much you earn and how many hours u worked, now that is not true they give higher bonuses to people they like more.

    Now the company has high turn over rate, never seen something like that anywhere where people comme and go. Every couple of months they have open house, trying to bring new people in. When you go to open house, they will hire you as a temp, and u never be able to become full time.

    The pay is very low, it's below the state standards. Now the raised if you don't ask, you will not get the sorry rais, it's very low. Also the Ceo is praising the best expensive equipment, but can't pay their employees what they deserve.

    When you do a walk through the plant make shure to ask on how many mashines at the same time you will be working usually it's 3 to 4. So in 12 houers you will be working like a slave, without any help.

    The management is very unorganized, uneducated. They will micro manage you, and when you make a mistake you will be written off, if they make a mistake it is ok.

    It's funny when you see the management/famaly members leaving good reviews, we are employees we know how it is to work here, hopefully I will be gone in couple of weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lay to your employees, do not promise if you can't keep. Get educated managers.

    I worked at O'Neil Data Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good location, nothing other than that.

    Cons

    Where shall I begin with, Well let me start
    1) No respect for the employee. All employees are treated as roman workhorse.
    2) Bonus – The company promise you of bonus when hired. That bonus comes at price of your personal life working 9 to 10 hour per day.
    3) No transparency in bonus.
    4) The President of the company proudly says we contribute additional towards bonus in Christmas in addition to your regular bonus. Realty fact is they split the same bonus in two checks and make fool out of employee.
     5) No policy and work life balance.
    6) Best part, your appraisal is at the mercy of management after 2 years.
    7) They show case their self as a leader in technology-driven marketing services, but have no work ethics.

    Still want to work over here?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employee and be transparent in policies.

    I have been working at O'Neil Data Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The Health insurance benefit is great but no 401 K match. Broad types of work as the tasks are not always specialized.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, lack of transparency, very long work hours, poor communication from senior management, lack of division within departments, no autonomy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees more to do their job and stop treating employees as robots that churn out work at all hours. The departments of the company need to be re-organized as Business Analysts shouldn't be doing marketing work, and developers shouldn't be network/IT support.

    Pros

    Good location. They will pay Mobile bill. You will get your paycheck on-time. Low Salary & Big bonus make similar to other company salary in the area.

    Cons

    Extremely paranoid - they feel pride in NOT trusting anyone and you will know you're part of that "anyone."

    Even good change not welcomed - almost impossible to bring any change because of the points mentioned above. And the main reason they still have a legacy system they are proud of.

    Extra Bonus comes for Extra long work hours 6 to 7 days a week. very unprofessional workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn some manners bananas

    I worked at O'Neil Data Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    if you want to learn about printing in a bad organization, they make many many mistakes in the printing process and fulfillment and shipping, so is good that you will learned from their big mistakes.
     Good for a very short time, not for a long term work, you better use your sick days before the end of the year , but if you don't use it you will get paid for the days+1 day more at the end of the year.

    Cons

    don't expect bonus as they said at the time they hired you, and you will get a review only when you keep asking for it, and even with the review you will not get a good rise.
    management (CEO) have his almost entire family working there so better if you work in a department where they are not, very unprofessional place to work.
    people don't stay long here, and the ones still there don't quit because they wait to long to quit. don't expect promotions or any sort of motivation from the management, they promise but never deliver.
    if you work well they will never promote it you , they will keep you there with the same salary you start wit a very little motivation/rise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop lying to your employes, motivate people but not with false promises

    Pros

    3% Raise after 3 years.No raise unless you ask for it - as per company policy. Unstable Monthly Bonus paid for 65 to 70 hours of work per week. No work from home unless you work in IT Department.

    Cons

    Limited rewards for exceptional work. Limited or no advancement. Leadership sees the potential but admits they do not want to advance because they want to keep someone in a role where they will provide the exceptional support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should retire and let the new thinkers move up. Technology Infrastructure needs serious improvement.
