    I have been working at Online Business Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've been with Online for almost 14 years. As with many other long-tenured Onliners, I view my fellow Onliners as my professional family - focused more on delivering quality and valuable deliverables and experience to our clients than climbing the corporate ladder. We have each others' backs; we treat our clients like we would treat guests in our home; we make "work" as much fun as it can be; we strive to be the best...

    Pros

    You are surrounded by smart people who all want to see you succeed and are forthcoming with sharing their knowledge and expertise. Everyone is willing to pitch in to accomplish goals and will help you find answers to your questions.

    Cons

    So far so good, no cons! The workforce is spread all over the US and Canada with most working from home. Maybe if you don't like working remote that could be considered a con.

    Pros

    Everything about working here. 401k Match, great health, average pay. Benefits compete against the best firms out there. You can sometimes feel a little lost as we have no US home base. Everyone works on their own island.

    Cons

    Work should be distributed a little better. You go weeks at 30% and then months at 80%.

    Advice to Management

    Let’s not lose sight of our core values as we grow.

      I have been working at Online Business Systems full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      The people at Online are the best I have worked with. They are smart, lifelong learners, hard workers, team players and know how to have fun. I believe the leadership team at Online really cares about the people who work there. They promote development of their people and encourage new thinking and initiatives. They have created an environment where Onliners can thrive. Opportunities are there for those who want them.

      Cons

      I really can't think of anything. We are undergoing a period of growth and transformation. There are bound to be some growing pains, but the leadership team is very cognizant of this and is clearly working hard to ensure a bright future for Onliners.

      Advice to Management

      Keep focused on the culture that has made you great. This is a differentiator.

      Thanks for the feedback. We agree that we have some of the most amazing people. Although many say that, it becomes clear when you are assigned to an Online project team, that Onliners are of a different caliber. Our clients say the same thing. To your point, not only are they smart, ...
