    I have been working at Ontario Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Strong team culture. Work/life balance is encouraged with reasonable hours, ample time off, flexible work-from-home options, and family-friendly policies. New CEO brings with him a focus on transparency and open communication. Ample opportunities for professional development and growth.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. It would be great to see more women and POC in senior leadership positions. Paid time off is in one pot (vacation, personal, sick are not differentiated). Health insurance is a high-deductible HSA plan.

    I have been working at Ontario Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New executive leadership is being put in place with accountability being a focus. New ownership is focused on growth There a lot of associates who care about the company and doing the right work. The culture is inviting and friendly.

    Cons

    OS has gone through this before and not been successful at breaking free from old habits. OS is not a technology innovator and has not been in over 20 years. Big transformation needed. New leaderships makes everyone feel uncomfortable.

    I worked at Ontario Systems full-time

    Pros

    They offer lots of free parking.

    Cons

    CEO, President, and all six Vice Presidents are straight white men. Very "boy's club" environment. I once reported an associate making racist comments and nothing happened (beyond the associate being promoted shortly thereafter). The organization is intentionally silo'd into Business Units. Collaboration was rare prior to that reorganization and it's practically vanished since then.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ontario Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some really awesome people who have worked there for a long time and are absolutely worth knowing.

    Cons

    It's a boys' club. Women are not promoted into positions of authority and they are not given the same respect as the men. Raises are slow, if at all. Problem employees are allowed to remain employed, even when there is sufficient evidence to let them go. Communication is all spin. Everyone is dramatically underpaid for the Portland Metro area. All the salaries and benefits are based on the Muncie, IN headquarters without taking into consideration the VAST difference in cost of living in Washington. Management tells you they listen to you, but they don't HEAR you. There isn't a lot of upward opportunities.
