I have been working at Applied Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I've just completed my first month at Applied Systems and have never experienced a better work environment in my life. Everyone is both motivated and supportive in what they do and everyone is extremely organized.

My higher ups treat me with respect and do not doubt my abilities, despite my young age and are always willing to put their crucial projects in my hands. The benefits and pay are amazing and I feel extremely lucky to be here.

Cons

Honestly, the only con I can think of is the continuity issues with the previous branding, but all of that is being addressed currently.

Advice to Management

Reach out to your employees and get them to review this company. I'm sure you will receive more positive feedback than what is currently on this page. These reviews are a bit over-critical and do not properly reflect the true nature of this company.

    I worked at Applied Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They hire people right out of college with no experience and has a pretty good training program to get you familiar with programming and working in a corporate environment.

    Cons

    Employees are horribly underpaid. This is not a job where you can make a living. My salary was about $20k less than the average starting salary for software developers with bachelor's degrees. Raises just barely keep up with inflation. Benefits aren't anything to write home about either. One thing to note also is the location. It is located in the deep ghettos of the south side of Chicago. The area is poverty-stricken and if you want to live in a decent area you'll have to commute quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Give more competitive compensation and better benefits.

    I worked at Applied Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great! Be open and you'll get along with your coworkers

    Cons

    Low and inconsistent pay. You may start at the same time as someone with the same experience but make between 5K and 10K difference.
    Management reaped a lot of benefits at the cost of the dedicated employees.
    Little recognition from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to personally thank your employees.
    Set standard salaries for positions.
