Hire some leaders

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Plateau Systems

ProsGreat people who work hard, casual environment, cool projects, passion for the work. Fun place with great benefits.

ConsThis place is run sort of like high school, where the popular kids get all the attention and accolades and promotions. Everyone (even the popular kids) have way too much work on their plates. Forecasting includes no bench time and the best employees get burned out because they care so much.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people and create some repeatable processes.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Plateau Systems

ProsCasual dress work environment, can take off when needed, decent work environment.

Consvery lax management, does not plan ahead/rushes at the last minute, and management will not take responsibility.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not side talk out your mouth, you have no idea you are full of it and we know it. Offer more growth opportunities.

Some good people there, some smart folks, but misguided management kills your motivation.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Plateau Systems

ProsCompensation can be very good if you work hard. People get recognized when they deliver above and beyond what is expected of them.

ConsSome departments lack good structure and it causes emergencies when bad planning results in customer impacting scenarios. No accountability for such failures at a management level.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep in mind that people see what's going on. Noone wants to work weekends, but it is asked without hesitation over and over again. This happens on top of people working nights. Overall compensation on a per hour breakdown can be depressing when you look at it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great place to work; growing company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Plateau Systems

ProsGreat team of people and tremendous opportunity to help shape the company. Senior management has long tenure as a team and works well together. Solid Board. Good customers. Respectful colleagues. Strong collaboration. Latitude and support to initiate and own projects. Smart people. Low employee turnover. Growing company with good technology and solutions and customers. Plateau is a solid company.

ConsLong hours. Work life balance is challenging. Flexibility could be better. Career development and advancement is somewhat elusive.

Advice to Senior Management-Focus should be on quality of work vs. quantity of work.
-Ensure that policies across the organization are consistent.
-Work/life balance is off - that scale needs to be recalibrated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
