    Pros

    Family owned and operated company that has an incredible vision for the future. Employees are given the opportunities to succeed in a great work environment. There are no limitations. If you’re willing to follow the training process, work hard and accept responsibility, you’ll find a place at Sandhills. The owners constantly reinvesting in the company with beautiful buildings and new acquisitions. Exciting company...

    Cons

    The dress code is the most common complaint but the opportunity for growth and income is worth wearing a suit or a dress/skirt every day.

    Pros

    - Deadlines are often soft so work at a relaxed pace. - The pay is very good, especially for starting off. - Cubicle environment in secondary building is awesome. You have your own space to do as you please without interruption or a manager looking over your shoulder. - Your manager will probably be in Lincoln, so no in-person managerial pressure. - Flexible vacations and schedule - Annual bonus - Cheap health...

    Cons

    - Dress code (although you look good all the time) - No 401k matching - Main language is visual basic, which is on its way out (they are transitioning slowly to C#) - Environment in primary building can be boring and awkward. Not a factor if you just throw on your headphones and do your work

    Advice to Management

    Dress code needs to evolve. Social culture needs to be modernized.

    Pros

    Nice facilities, clean and have underground parking. Free work phone and laptop that can be used personally. Decent benefits, not the greatest. Christmas bonus.

    Cons

    Extremely outdated dress code. There’s no reason to spend hundreds of dollars to dress business professional to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day with no client interaction. No company culture and no employee interaction. Unless you know your coworkers outside of work personally, don’t expect to ever interact with them. People show up and leave with no greetings and you wouldn’t even know anyone else is there. Open...

    Get rid of the dress code or at least pay for some of it. Pay people more.

    I worked at Sandhills Global full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    One of the higher paying companies for software developers in Lincoln, NE. Good work life balance, not a ton of mandatory overtime. Low hiring standards so easy to get your foot in the door and get some experience before you job hop.

    Cons

    The culture is terrible. Dress code: The dress code is mandatory suits because the owners think that it gives off a professional vibe when they give prospective clients a tour and they can walk their clients through where the software developers work and everyone is wearing a suit. We write code all day, there is no need to wear a full suit. Business casual would be okay but the full suit really plays in negatively...

    Advice to Management

    The company feels like it's in a state of if it isn't broke don't fix it but with no push for innovation. Companies need to be always in a state of improvement or they will get left behind. Management if you want to improve culture get your subordinates involved with the process, ask them for feedback or how to make an impact. Encourage comradery between teams and be more friendly and open. Also lose the suits!

    Pros

    Maybe there will be a lawsuit

    Cons

    Recently the CEO put a screensaver on all of the sales staff computers openly threatening the staff with intimidation tactics - promoting the image of HIM STANDING IN HIS OFFICE WITH A BASEBALL BAT SAYING “One sale a day keeps SP Away” What in the holy bejesus ladies and gentlemen. This place is on fire.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with your life mr CEO as everyone will now know you as a terrible leader and worse human by promoting that image of yourself.

      I worked at Sandhills Global full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      You'll meet a lot of good people that won't work there anymore either. Ham instead of a 401k.

      Cons

      Narcissism and favoritism are strong. The boys are infalliable, just ask them. They may have never been to Mt Everest, but they can climb it better than the sherpas. Their most trusted inner circles are brown nosed micromanagers with wild mood swings and no professionalism. Even gently being out of the box, and by out of the box I actually mean just regular industry thinking, is subject to some wrath. Ideas have...

      Pros

      Everyone hates working there so there’s always something to bond with your coworkers about. Hate spending time with family? Then you’ll love it here! You don’t have enough vacation days to see them. Plus when you do use vacation days you’re still expected to work outside of the office, so you’ll never have to worry about pesky family interaction.

      Cons

      In all seriousness avoid this place. The culture is terrible, the CEO would sooner snap his neck than interact with his lowly employees, the environment is incredibly toxic, and at the end of the day they treat their customers the same way as their employees, badly.

      Advice to Management

      Get to a doctor and get the sticks removed. Stop treating the employees like slave labor. Add in some positive reinforcement, instead of the relentless slew of toxicity.

      -The opportunity to travel domestically and internationally.

      Cons

      -Management- some of the most incompetent people I’ve ever met. They micromanage and belittle employees on a daily basis. -Culture- There is no culture, but if I had to come up with something I’d say toxic. Employees are not respected, especially if you’re a woman or a minority. It is an uptight environment and bullying is their preferred method of motivation. -dress code- You can read this is every other review. It’s...

      Advice to Management

      Bring in a 3rd party and have them fix everything. Management would need a complete overhaul for anything to improve here. If management stays as is, there is no hope. Eventually their name will become so toxic that they will lose all customers and employees.
