About Toptech Systems 

Toptech Systems supplies innovative automation and management software and hardware, load rack control equipment, and access control devices to both major and independent companies within the crude and refined fuels industry. Some of Toptech’s customers include Shell, ExxonMobil, and BP. Many of Toptech’s clients, however, are small companies that own either one or two terminals.

Toptech is committed to growing and improving the businesses of its customers and knows that can only be achieved through a continued focus on customer partnership, customer service, innovation, and employee development.

Toptech’s corporate headquarters is located in Longwood, Florida, a beautiful suburb of Orlando. The USA office manages North and South America. Sales and support for the rest of the world is handled by Toptech’s European office, based in Antwerp, Belgium.

    I have been working at Toptech Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I actually love working for Toptech! I've been here for 5 years and feel like it's an extended family. There are only about 80-90 people in the US building and 15 people in Belgium. They do so many things to really make it clear that they care about the employees. After every large customer project the team celebrates and is recognized by company leadership. We actually have a wall of fame with pictures of the teams that have worked on large projects. Also, we throw a baby shower whenever one of the women are pregnant. The most recent one was mine and they even had me invite my husband and mom. It was incredibly sweet!
    I've never witnessed a company so dedicated to being a great place to work that they allow 10% of the workforce to spend time each month on projects and events for the employees. Toptech actually seeks employee feedback all the time and uses it to make real improvements. There are plenty of growth opportunities, and since we're owned by an umbrella company, there are also some opportunities to work on projects with other companies. I think the best part is that because it's a small company, you're never stuck doing one thing. We all wear multiple hats so you're never done learning.
    The GM is pretty cool too. He really cares about improving the culture and making the company a more fun place to work. Since he started, we've had some awesome things happen like a Toptech Spirit Day. Each month we give a Good Neighbor award to a different employee and the GM always wears a Mr. Rogers style sweater to present it. He also approved cool lounge/collaboration areas for employees throughout the building. He has an open door policy and he attends our Daily Management meetings every morning.
    I also love that we do a lot of work with the local Boys & Girls Club. It's optional, so not everyone is involved, but for those who are it's extremely rewarding.

    Cons

    I wish the company was more progressive with their benefits and offered things like paternity leave and flex scheduling as part of the policy. Also, much of your experience depends of your manager. A really large percentage of the managers are awesome and the other percent is getting there. Toptech actually does a ton to train the managers and help them improve. Still, some managers just aren't as passionate about developing their employees and providing feedback. Unfortunately, pretty much all the managers are working managers (are as hands deep in each project/task as the employees) so actually leading their employees can only be a certain percentage of their job. You can train them all day but if their workload is huge then they literally don't have time to do important leadership things like give quality feedback, recognize good work, and have career conversations. This makes it really important to be aggressive about seeking face time and that's just not everyone's style.

    Advice to Management

    Let's hire managers purely to manage. It's easier to teach someone technical skills than it is to teach them leadership skills. Also, why couldn't we offer more flexible scheduling options as a policy?

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Toptech Systems (Longwood, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Lasted 5 minutes and declined. Didn't read my resume before the interview. The staffing company who set up the interview is Tekk Fusion, who didn't bother to send them my resume. Drove 3 hours for nothing.
