    I worked at Long View Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    shiny offices in Down town

    Cons

    I faced discrimination at this company because I am black.. I was not happy at all about the team members at Edmonton office. I advice any one from ethnic minority not to waste time and apply for Long view. I resigned after one week of employment. this was the most stressful week in my life. was a complete waste of my time, effort and money to relocate at Edmonton for the Job.

    Advice to Management

    You need to make some changes and hire people from ethnic minority. and advice other workers to treat them fairly with respect.

    I worked at Long View Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great staff, great co-workers and camaraderie. Offers plenty of certification training as well as paying for testing. Can move up within IT fairly easily provided you have the gumption to do so. If you're content staying in your role you can do so as well.

    Cons

    When oil and gas fell, they laid off 40% of the staff. This meant people were doing work for three. It became too stressful. It became about the numbers more so than the people. In addition to that, nepotism was rampant. If you weren't on the good side of a manager, forget about your life there. You were an outcast and would stay that way. Fortunately for me it wasn't the case, but I could see it happening to others.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more about providing millennial a better place to work. It should not be so focused on numbers. It should be collaborative and focused on productivity without the cost of happiness. Work life balance is needed as well.

    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time for more than 2 years

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
