    Pros

    You can build a lot of experience working for this company. You will learn a lot about their software and build the knowledge to understand how PCs communicate through servers and more. As long as you get your work done, then nobody can tell you anything. You get a lot of autonomous time to be on the internet, on your phone and even sometimes speak with other co-workers regarding the company products or anything else in general.

    Cons

    Employees are very disrespectful when you ask for help and there is no training on respect and morality between employees and clients. Company structure needs to be redone majorly. The CEO is a piece of gar**** along with the other Senior Managements. The CEO and Senior Managements don't could care less about their employees. All they care about is making money and taking all the money into their salaries. Last year they claimed the company made over $200,000 in revenue. However, that's after the CEO and top managements put more than 5-8 million plus into their salaries. They are unethical and don't care about you not one bit. They just want to sell their products and make money while the ones running the show (tech guys) make low salaries and barely have anything left over at the end of the month. The turnover rate is so high especially in the Insite Department. There is no room to grow within that company for advancements and the company bases your salary and everything else based upon what you know about the software. It will take you 3-4 years to be completely fluent and understand their software based products. They don't recognize honesty, integrity, respect or hard work. They just want you to get the work done while they make money. Benefits, health benefits and 401K are just so horrible.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO thinks he's better than everyone else and will look down upon you and won't even greet you. I worked there for a while and not one day did the CEO or other top management even say a word of politeness to us employees. They won't even say hi at all! What a garbage management system. Start appreciating your employees and make them known around the company for their hard work. Recognize the employees that are doing good. Have company meetings in each department once a month where the CEO and speak with everyone and explain what's going on and what we can improve on as a company. Start taking advice from employees as well. Also, give raises to employees every 6 months to keep them motivated even if it's a $.50 cent raise. Encourage employees by making incentive plans and have employees compete with another on who can be at work the earliest and get the most work done while being genuine to co-workers and clients.

    Pros

    Depending on your position you have a good bit of autonomy and time to yourself to do with what you wish, bonus if/when you travel, flexibility when it comes to time off

    Cons

    No communication, highly unorganized, higher ups only care about their own issues, everyone thinks they're better than everyone else, too many people in positions who aren't qualified to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to actually train your employees & show some appreciation. Take action and do what you say you're going to do for your team instead of dragging your feet on issues that are important to them but may not be as advantageous for you.

    I have been working at Automated Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has made a lot of changes in the last 2 years. A complete review of compensation, revised dress code, management changes and the addition of a HR Manager. The company is trying to make changes and listen to the employees. The company is growing.

    Cons

    If you want to succeed at ASI - you have to have the passion for building a career. Not really a con but if you want your hand held, it's not a place for you. That's the benefit of working at a small company.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent management practices.

    Great opportunity to gain experience.

    Cons

    No opportunities. Pay is very low. Upper management is buddy buddy with a select few.

    Advice to Management

    To all the way up top. Be more professional.

    Pros

    It good opportunity to get into the technology sector of the Financial Industry.

    Cons

    Such a lack of culture and leadership. I didn't see many employees taken care of. When they built their new office building they bought chairs and used cubicle walls from the 1970's (seriously they were hideous) Just an overall indication of how projects and people were taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    Apprectiate your employees and offer some benefits that show you care.

    Pros

    Great company to get a year or two of initial experience at, they are comfortable hiring junior developers, and developers with only legacy experience.
    Lot's of room to create and expand your role if you are a self-starter.
    Company activities included golf outings and grill outs for new sales.

    Cons

    Non-management communication doesn't seem to be encouraged or approved of, the dress code is archaic, some of the management is threatened by suggestions and change, if you are a software developer, you may have to create your own position. I have seen developers on board a few weeks without receiving tasks or direction get fired for not doing anything. Management will try to get you to work overtime, and I've seen a developer lied to about receiving payment for overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to break the hierarchy and politics and open communication with all members of the company. Consider looking at different ways of structuring software development, as the current team structure is dysfunctional.

    Very smart engineers that support community banks. High precision and excellent customer service are emphasized when training new employees. Employees and management reallt care about the customer.

    Cons

    As with many small to mid-sized compaies, salary and benefits are always an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a more results-oriented company. Reward those who produce marketable results.
