    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time

    Pros

    Awesome people, a leadership team that is always trying to do the right thing, culture of fun, lots of opportunities for advancement, open door policy, everyone always open to constitutive feedback, treats everyone like family

    Cons

    Loyal to its people to a fault sometimes. It’s ok to make people changes to transform and sometimes some people don’t realize they need a change so it ends up being a win-win

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, congrats on the recent gender diversity promotions, transformation is hard but consistency and determination will ensure the 100-year journey and vision of the company!

    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've enjoyed working at Long View for these past 2 years. I find it challenging work that offers many opportunities for personal growth. Over the past two years, I've taken these opportunities and become a very senior resource. That wouldn't have been possible at my previous employer or at other technology companies.

    Cons

    The company is missing some of the formalization that you'd expect. If you want clearly defined responsibilities or paint-by-numbers work, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

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

    Pros

    Very relaxed culture. If you like cutting up every once in a while, it a good place to work. Good client base. Great name in Oil & Gas. Resources to pull from from other offices.

    Cons

    They may tell you that you have influence, but all of the decisions are made out of Canada. If you are America, you have no career path. Most leadership is imported from Canada.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that business is handled differently in the US than it is in Canada. Also, you will never attract and retain the best talent when Americans have no career path.

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Company lacks good direction and ends up in a trap of just breaking even instead of advancing forward. As a result continual staff reductions take place.

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

    Pros

    My favorite employer of all time- they go above and beyond to ensure their employees are well taken care of. They treat you like family and the environment is easy and fun. They way they treat their people is felt in the customer experience and ends up being a plus for delivery

    Cons

    Hours can be long and when it's busy... it's really busy.
    New hire training isn't great but you learn as you go.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees get time off. The work because of the environment doesn't feel like work but everyone needs the downtime to come back fresh & strong

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity in growing, established company

    Cons

    This company preaches looking out for employees, but did not live up to that at all. HR was a mess. Career development was poor. Dumped me first chance they had rather than have my salary on bench.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Working with people of different background and Technical expertise. A chance to learn new things.

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism to certain employees especially during time of slow work. Some managers do not care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Place employees that have been with the company first before hiring outside or bringing in new employees. Try getting positions in various industries rather than oil.

    Good starting place, if you are just starting out and would like to get IT experience. Learn what you can and get out as soon as possible.

    Cons

    A lot of time advancement is based on who they like and not you actual ability to do the job. Unfortunately leads and management lack a lot of leadership skills.
