  • Plex Cares: Individual who exemplifies the value we hold for our people.  These passionate team members put the Plex Values into action with our customers and partners, within our communities, and when working with each other.  They make a difference by taking an action that goes above and beyond their normal jobs and changes the way we work or live for the better.

Ideation Contest Winner 

We have taken the tradition idea of a "suggestion box" and re-invented it as an ideation contest. This is where employees' voice and ideas will be heard, and also a place to read and vote on other people's ideas. This is about innovation, which is one of our core values at Plex. We encourage employees to be creative with their ideas, while putting thought into how it will provide Plex, customers, employees and partners value. All ideas are welcomed and all submissions are reviewed. The ideas with the most votes will be selected for a grand prize. This year, the winner was awarded $1,000 cash prize and employee recognition.

                     


   

When You Give, We Give. This past year, Plexians contributed to multiple charities and organizations that they care about. Plex matched donations to more than 18 non-profit groups.

We feel that giving back shouldn't be just a one-time gesture; it should be a continuous partnership that grows over time. We established the Plex Giving Program to do just that - to rally our employees around a specific cause or community organization on an annual basis. Since 2007, Plex Giving has partnered with organizations like Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Gleaners Community Food Bank, Humane Society of Monroe County, Make-a-Wish Michigan, St. Clair Butterfly Foundation and this year's partner the National 4-H Council. Fundraising activities include pancake breakfasts with Plex executives as celebrity chefs, wine tastings, silent auctions and employee donation matching.

Plex has taken a thoughtful approach to our giving program by supporting local and global initiatives that align to where employees live and work. One employee's efforts to raise money for the Flint Water Crisis is a great example of the types of causes where Plex wants to help. Initially, the Plexian created a GoFundMe account to raise $2,000 to bring safe, clean drinking water to people of Flint, MI. His efforts along with the community and many members of the Plex team raised almost $10,000. Plex matched the money raised, resulting in a $20,000 total donation.

Benefits

Generous benefits include Health, Dental, Vision, Life, Disability, 401(k) matching program, Paid Vacation/Holidays, all within a flexible work environment.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    I have been at Plex for a few years now and I am still as excited about working for Plex as I was the day I started. Yes Plex is experiencing growing pains, yes some mistakes have been made. However, I have never seen a corporate team so determined to find and fix the issues that are affecting the employees. Plex is continuously implementing and improving programs to improve employee satisfaction, a topic taken quite literally.

    I usually don't review a company while I'm still work there but when I see some of the incorrect statements and outright lies coming in some of these reviews from employees that have been terminated, I felt I had to get my opinion out there.

    Cons

    If you ask me, the biggest drain on the company right now is the attitude of many of the "old guard" that have been around since Plex was a small fledgling company. Yes when the company was smaller all employees had a say in more decisions and sure the culture was more relaxed. What they need to understand though, is that even though Plex has grown considerably and even if some of the "culture" has changed it is still so much better than a lot of companies out there.

    When the free candy, snacks and lunch items were moved from the individual floors to the 15th floor, there was a big uproar about culture change. Having come from a company that merely supplied coffee to the employees, I'm happy to go up a few flights to get my free chips and candy bar. Oh yeah and maybe play a game of pool or air hockey while I'm there.

    Compared to all of the companies I have work for in the past, Plex is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path you are on. Your dedication to your employee satisfaction is admirable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Plex Systems, Inc. (Troy, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was with a recruiter. She was very helpful and polite. I was asked basic questions about my resume and work experience. Second interview I scheduled with the hiring manager. I was asked more in depth questions and told that I would need additional interviews. Later that day I was offered the position. Overall the process was extremely efficient and professional.
