    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at CAS Severn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Frequent free food and plenty of company parties.

    Cross training makes moving to new positions possible.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Some employees get special treatment and the account executives are not easy to work with and are always seen as more important than everyone else. Way too much drama for a tech company....

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoring certain people over other people. Recognize everyone and pay them what they are worth.

    Pros

    People were nice and willing to teach you patiently. Got the change to work with different people in different department. Flexible working schedule.

    Cons

    Repeat same work, which is the truth of working in private accounting filed.

    Advice to Management

    Management has already done pretty good job in rotating job position and training people.

    "Challenges - But Moving In Right Direction"

    I worked at CAS Severn full-time

    Pros

    - New Leaders are smart, moving company in the right direction
    - Growth potential
    - A number of very smart engineers at the firm
    - Few other co's have the same quality or number of smart engineers

    Cons

    - Nepotism is rampant. Old owners continually making odd hiring and promotion decisions based off personal relationships. Very discouraging to the team. They are also firing people with real potential.
    - Old Owners need to retire - their involvement and family/spouse involvement drags down the organization - which also creates internal drama that is not welcome. This is the single largest issue at the company.
    - Not all sales people are on board with the transition - too many sales people 'farming' old accounts and relationships instead of expanding the business
    - No real culture - just an empty office with drama from the owners - negative culture if any.
    - Company is unfocused - too many businesses going on at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Get the old owners out of the way, hire more talented sales people, retain best engineers and hire more. Sell off old business units and focus the company.

    I have been working at CAS Severn full-time

    Pros

    If you want to work on an IBM iSeries this is the place for you. Broad coverage of IBM hardware and software offerings. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Still supporting the IBM iSeries. Client list is largely populated with dysfunctional organizations. Issues of successor-ship and the current ownership's exit strategy are still not resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Please exit your time capsule.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at CAS Severn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I searched for something positive to say and the only thing I could come up with - The receptionist was nice.

    Cons

    Dejected staff who seem to be spinning their wheels until something better comes along. The Managers are stuck in the 90s and as a technology company, they're sinking in a quagmire as they try to hang onto things they did in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and move on!
