    I worked at ABS Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at ABS from 2007 - 2010, and I was given opportunities that jump started my career. I came back from 2015 - 2017 and found a work/life balance I didn't think was possible as an IT consultant. When I decided it was time to move on to a new challenge again recently, I received sincere support. I will always look back at my time at ABS as a worthwhile and meaningful venture that played a key role in my personal and professional growth. ABS is different from most other companies in that they are employee-focused with a mission statement that gives a higher sense of purpose to day to day activities.

    Cons

    Stay anywhere long enough, and you will begin to find things that you wish you could change. ABS provides plenty of avenues to affect change. If you decide that the change you need means going to work some place else, I can tell you that employees who move on from ABS are celebrated with going away lunches and many congratulations both from coworkers and from management.

    "Seems to be falling on hard times."

    Pros

    The pros used to be good benefits and a family like culture.
    As long as you make very little money your job is safe.
    If you are a dog person you will love it here. (the CEO's dog can be aggressive - be warned)

    Cons

    Due to what appears to be financial issues everyone is under scrutiny and if you make any good money they lay you off or find something to get rid of you.
    Most management has been let go over the last year and there CFO left as well.
    The CEO has a small group of favorites that he listens to and gets advice from. If you are not part of that group then you may have issues.
    Lack of engineering resources. Engineers constantly travel with limited work life balance.
    Remote offices lack a voice.
    Questionable sales decisions when it comes to charging customers for work.
    If you are cat person.... no.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that can help ABS grow in the right ways (Sales/Engineering/New Technology Offerings).

    Pros

    okay benefits, helpful co-workers, easy to reach out to peers

    Cons

    Not a flexible place to work, more interested in results than employee morale, no overtime / have to jump through hoops.

    Happy wife happy life, same principals apply in regards to employees.

    I have been working at ABS Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leadership has an open door policy, and transparent. Competitive pay. Having worked in the industry approx. 20 years (not always at ABS), I challenge you to find a technology company that treats you as well as ABS. Leadership promotes
    "work hard/play hard" offering ping pong tables, game rooms and social gatherings at all locations.

    Cons

    If you are looking for "perfect" workplace, this may not be it, but good luck finding one :) Tools can be a struggle, but management listens and is in the process of fixing.

    Advice to Management

    THANK YOU for your dedication to the ABS employees/families.

    I have been working at ABS Technology full-time

    Pros

    A really great environment to come to work in every day. The other employees are fun, good at their jobs, and there is an atmosphere of team work. Management treats people with respect. There are great perks - in addition to the benefits package there are fun events like a chili cook-off, holiday potluck lunches, and it is a dog-friendly office!

    Cons

    My frustrations have been with the tools we use. But management listened and we are in the process of upgrading to something that will better suit our needs.

    I have been working at ABS Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people and with right leadership could do great things.

    Cons

    Constant revolving door of people. Leadership changes with the seasons. Some departments have had 7 managers in a year. Huge initiatives that were promised have never come to fruition. Lots of talk with very little action.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't waste time in responding to this. We know you and your dog love us, and your door is always open. What we really want is a clear direction, guidance, and most importantly leadership.
