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

    Pros

    I can not think of anything positive about this company

    Cons

    Company treats you like you are babies. 100% micro management. No one is friendly or talks to one another. Management thinks they are better than the rest of the company. Very unorganized, and paper everywhere. The dishwasher is in the bathroom! Very gross! There is no place to eat your lunch - you must eat in your car! In the winter it is pretty cold eating outside. Management has no regard for the employees. They expect you to cater to their needs, but they will not return.
     the favor. The parking lot is terrible. They have one lot that is for the "special people" You must have a high level position to use this lot that has parking for 6 people. The other lot has parking for 12 cars and there are over 50 people in the building. It is crazy, and there have been accidents in this crazy parking lot. They pay is terrible for what you have to put up with.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse, and start respecting your employees. Just because you are in management, does not make you better than anyone else. An occasional hello to an employee may be nice. It will go along way.

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

    Pros

    My co-workers are some of the best people I've ever had the opportunity to work with. There were tears shed on my part when I left. We kept each other going, day in and day out, under extremely difficult circumstances. The work itself was fine. The real shining jewel of the company is the people who work there. The company is at the cutting edge of ACA reporting, it will probably continue to grow. Time off policy is pretty standard, they offer 8 sick days, 2 personal and vacation is based on your tenure (10 days the first year, 15 the second, etc). Hours are good, 8:30-5 and you get an hour for lunch still. Location is also ood, there's a lot in the KOP area so it's easy to get out of the office for an hour.

    Cons

    The mid-level managers are decent people, but are given no ability to actually "manage" their team - they have no access to salaries, bonuses, etc. I've never seen a company managed the way this one is. Everything is controlled with a tight fist by senior management. They treat the employees there terribly - low pay, degradation, cost-prohibitive benefits (the worst I've ever seen), no flex time, and you get accused of stealing office supplies. Most of programs are old and constantly breaking, and there is no plan in place to replace them, and the only one who can fix a lot of them retired in December! All of the focus is on new business and revenue streams - focus on fixing what got you where you are in the first place! Senior management will give you all kinds of lip service about ways they're going to improve - but wait two weeks and it'll change. They are very inconsistent and unpredictable, the only thing you can count on is that the employees will get screwed in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You have an amazing group of people that work for you. You need to take a look at how they're managed, give the mid-level managers the ability to actually MANAGE. Pay your employees their actual market value, increase benefits, and for goodness sakes put flex time in place! It costs you absolutely nothing and everyone will love it!
