    I worked at Long View Systems full-time

    Pros

    Very soft corporate culture. They respect you and your personal and career needs. Very good benefits and 401k plans. They are flexible when it comes to your individual needs.

    Cons

    Almost all decision makers are out of Canada and almost all decisions are made by the CEO/founder who never comes in town and doesn't seem to listen to anyone. That dynamic chased away leaders so leadership is very lean.

    Advice to Management

    Not much. They can't change anything. But great people.

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers, there will never be a better team to work with. Good benefits for Denver area. Great opportunities for training (as long as you're not under-utilized).

    Cons

    Extremely hostile leadership in the Denver branch. Promising customers services we no longer have the staff to provide. Favoritism that has escalated from annoying to dangerous/unprofessional. Unprofessional and antagonistic behavior coming from one person will continue to poison the entire branch, they have lost over 20 employees this year alone in the Denver branch. Some quit after being bullied, some just found better jobs, and some were terminated without cause/laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Screaming matches should not be happening in the office during business hours (or any time really). Stop threatening consultants with firing/laying off if they are under-utilized. The favoritism does not go unnoticed, stop promoting people internally who are unqualified to management-level positions, Respect your employees for goodness' sake, they care about this company and you treat them like disposable goods.

    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay versus industry competition. Great opportunities for career advancement. Entrepreneurial atmosphere for those who embrace it. Follows many of the strong points documented in Jim Collins' book "Good to Great". Good benefits, good standard vacation offering.

    Cons

    A lack of diversity in clientelle bit the company hard when the oil industry changed for the worst. There still remains a lack of attention in seeking growth outside of the core industries, however that is changing. During the last 2 years, Long View underwent some difficult times, lost many good people and some true colours were shown by middle management, which has been a let down. Aside from this all, the core values of the company remain the same and an upswing will return Long View to its roots as a top-north service, product and support company.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your game plan. Allow for some additional growth in unexpected places. -Trust- your employees to be disciplined and to do the right thing. Ensure Middle Management is offering VALUE to their teams instead of creating further issues, there is much CYA is happening at the moment which decreases "do'er" morale and the credibility of Management.

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Nice People. There are some very great opportunities for learning and advancement.

    Cons

    Most "promotions" come with more responsibilities but no money. Documentation and process is poor to non-existent , so sometimes it feels like you have to reinvent the wheel for every job. Much of the management seems to make decisions just for the sake of making decisions.

    Advice to Management

    If you say that something is going to happen in the Monthly General Meeting, do it. Promises are bandied about constantly, but are very rarely delivered. Be a little harsher on non-preforming employees, there's tons of good people out there looking for jobs, you don't have to constantly hire diamond-in-the-roughs just to squeeze a couple of extra dollars out.

    "Disorganized"

    Former Employee - Anonymous 

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

    Pros

    Profitable company with big enterprise clients. Good People Services team. Good benefits and flexibility.

    Cons

    The experience will depend on what department you join. Technical roles may have a better leadership in comparison to other corporate roles, after all that is where the company profits and invests the most. There is stagnancy when it comes to internal process innovation even though there's very apparent gaps, this is likely due to long term middle management having limited ideas and beliefs. For a large organization, there does seem to be a disorganized pace of delivery.
