    I have been working at O'Neil Data Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Good News !! O'Neil Data is always hiring !! As some one shared the interview experience " You have to accept their below the market salary. O'Neil Data does not negotiate about Salary with anyone."
    Very easy to get a job if the interview with president goes well. Education and experience is not necessary, no one in the top management have any education, so they care less.

    The bonus is there but it comes with working 100+ hours a week like a slave.

    The bottom line is if in the interview they feel that you could work like a slave you will get the offer.

    Cons

    You will feel like your hands are tied behind and you still need to produce at your best. I assume you guys are imaginative enough to think of the consequences!

    Micromanagement redefined - Extremely paranoid - they feel pride in saying they don't trust anyone and you will know you're part of that "anyone." No trust shown in terms of anything related to work/office whatsoever; even the longest serving employees know no details about anything. You need to report each and everything in absolute detail; initially you'd be asked only to provide general update but that will eventually finish into their excuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice because not worth it !!

    Pros

    None. They pay your cell phone bill but they will then call you 24/7. You will lose your mind.

    Cons

    Place is run like a plantation. CEO is the master, you are slave. Worked there for 2 years, felt like 12. If you have an idea, you will be reprimanded. You are to do as you are told. You will slowly lose your self esteem and all hope. Barely escaped, still have nightmares.

    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.

    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 have been working at O'Neil Data Systems full-time (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
