    I have been working at Applied Systems full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I genuinely enjoy working at Applied Systems. - My coworkers are friendly and hard-working. It's clear to me they are committed to making the best products they can. We're comfortable asking each other for help and bringing up disagreements with each other with an eye towards finding the best approach, not to winning arguments. - Management is awesome. I feel very comfortable talking to my boss when I need help, and...

    Cons

    Applied tends to pay below market average. For me, though, the great work environment is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    During one of his presentations, the CEO said, "My strategy is to hire good people and keep them." From what I've seen at the company, I honestly believe he and the rest of the management mean that. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Applied has a very flexible work environment where work-life balance is supported and even encouraged. I never have a problem balancing the two. Professional growth is also encouraged and opportunities are presented for becoming better at my current job and to move me towards the next step in my career.

    Cons

    Workflow and processes could be better streamlined and adhered to.

    I worked at Applied Systems full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, colleagues make the work environment tolerable.

    Cons

    Management has no formal training making the work place extremely unorganized and at times chaotic. You are constantly pressed to give quality customer service, yet at the same time condemned when you you put quality over quantity.

    Advice to Management

    Minimal preparation is done to ensure that supervisors are on the same page, making expectations and overall job task extremely unclear. Better planning and being on the same page is an absolute must in order for this department to succeed, but is still severely lacking.

    I worked at Applied Systems full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    An industry leader with top-notch technology and innovative platforms delivering agency management systems, now with Google’s investment arm which purchased a minority stake in Applied Systems last year, so greater things are yet to come! This role is entirely remote working alongside a dedicated team of educators across the country. If you like to travel coast-to-coast and becoming a road warrior is your thing, ...

    Cons

    Travelling Mon-Fri 3 weeks + a month coast-to-coast, sometimes on Sundays, and/or on State and Federal Holidays, then working virtual once a week from home. This is a salaried role so there is no add'l pay for overtime, or add'l compensation /make-up for long days travelling across the country or any add'l pay for travelling on Sundays/Holidays. The "Work/Life Balance" is barely possible, depending on your lifestyle,...

    Advice to Management

    Have your managers actually MANAGE their direct-reports! The role of your managers are NOT to be on the road 85% of the time so you achieve maximum billing utilization! There are there to coach, to mentor, to shadow and to create opportunities for their direct reports to learn, to advance their skill-sets and to raise the bar. Your managers are dedicated working individuals that work very hard to only manage and achieve...

      I have been working at Applied Systems full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Supportive atmosphere within my department that constantly strives for improvement. I know what's expected of me in my job, and have constant check ins with my manager, even being a remote employee. Benefits, pay scale, time off are all generous. I feel as though I'm considered to be a person and not just an employee. That in itself makes it easier to care about this job.

      Cons

      None come to mind.

      Advice to Management

      Keep at it.

      Pros

      Applied continues to be the most innovative agency management system vendor in the world.

I look forward to continue to grow with Applied and provide the best tools out there to support our ever growing customer base.
