    Teamwork is the key to O'Neil's success

    Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsO'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.

    ConsIt 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not an enjoyable company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    **Waste of time and effort**

    (Current Employee)

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsExtremely 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 Senior ManagementPlease learn some manners bananas

    Lessons Learned at O'neil

    Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThis place will learn you to stick with work for 80 to 90 hours a week.
    Mobile phone bill paid by the company...WOW !! You better answer the phone when you are home.
    If you would like to learn management tricks then it would be the place for you.
    80 Hour work + 25% Bonus = 37.5% Savings on employee cost.

    ConsGOOGLE the owner to find out what OLD SCHOOL is
    80 Hour work + 25% Bonus = 37.5% Savings on employee cost ( Cons for employees).
    They Bring promotional new printing machine to show the employees free state of the art technology.
    Windows XP workstations and decades old software which only runs on WINDOWS XP workstations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace Antique technology which is constantly breaking. Spend money on technology and bring work life balance in the employees.

    Worst Company Ever

    Production Coordinator (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Prosif 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.

    Consdon'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 Senior Managementstop lying to your employes, motivate people but not with false promises

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Limited opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Pros3% 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.

    ConsLimited 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 Senior ManagementManagement should retire and let the new thinkers move up. Technology Infrastructure needs serious improvement.

    Good company if you are starting your career..but not more than that

    (Former Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsReasonably good health benefits but sick days are lost by the end of the year if you do not call in sick.
    So, they expect you to call in sick by the end of the year.
    Good company if you are starting your career..a small company to understand the ins and out of a printing shop but not more than that.

    ConsLow pay with tricky monthly bonus. Always looking towards cost savings but the smart president of the company always end up spending more.
    IT is a joke old and always having issue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe Professional !! Reward and recognition are critical to keep high performers!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to anyone

    (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIf you want to learn old school management tricks and how to make fake promises to employees, then this is the place for you.

    ConsWay too many.....

    Thick headed management, Never will Change. So people quit and O'Neil always have open position, management will tell you that business is growing !!!
    Management have no interest in change or finding educated talent.
    12 Hour shift from July till February. Monthly bonus is mostly during those months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to understand why more people are quieting and stop Lying. Explain the bonus part when you hire.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsClearly communicated objectives: This company sets goals and communicates them from senior management down. Everyone knows what their job is, what they are expected to get done, and how their role fits into the overall goals of the company.

    Monthly profit-sharing for all employees: Very few companies of this size have monthly bonuses and even fewer share them with all employees, not just senior management. This allows everyone to see a cut of their contributions to the company's overall success.

    Careful hiring selection: Upper management believes that hiring the right person, not just the right person for right now, is key to the company's overall success. As a result, nearly everyone you encounter while working here cares about their work product and the overall goals/success of the company, which makes it far easier to do your job.

    Overall, O'Neil Data Systems is a company that expects its employees to work smart and with reasonable effort, but in turn, rewards them very well. The company provides ample opportunity for advancement, and is overall a pleasant working environment.

    ConsNone that I can think of that would be worth mentioning.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
