    I have been working at Sandhills Global full-time for more than a year

    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.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Sandhills Global full-time for more than 3 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...

      The boys won the birth lottery. There's no advice they'll take.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Sandhills Global full-time for more than 3 years

      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.

      Pros

      -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.

      Pros

      Gift meat packages Paid travel Can somewhat travel at your own pace

      Cons

      No longer a favorable path towards earning a high salary if starting new Most managers are negative and condescending due to intense pressure from owner They will take accounts from sales reps with no apparent reason. This de-incentivizes selling Unchallenged owner making all big decisions with no managers brave enough to question him Employees are not valued here No 401k match Main product in decline

      Advice to Management

      Stand up to owner for your employees

      Handle the entire sales process, sales training program, traveling, development of sales skills Season Husker tickets, end of year bonuses and on holidays they’ll gift you a ham or beef Opportunity to make a lot of money Very successful company

      Advice to Management

      Work away from the my decision is the only one and right one. Allow creativity and flexibility within the workplace. Show appreciation to employees who clearly work hard under your out of date system. This is a glorified sweatshop run by a third generation kid who acts like someone took his ball at the park. Sending emails telling manager sand employees to find different jobs because they are stupid and inefficient. This...
