      Pros

      I truly enjoyed the people that I worked with. Everyone is nice and willing to help. Fridays at 4 pm=beer and ping pong. They pay you well and have good benefits packages.

      Cons

      Pretty much all of the people that I enjoyed working with are no longer with the company. When you get hired they tell you that everyone drinks beer and hangs out at 4 on Friday, but that is not necessarily true. There is too much work to be done, and no one wants to be the person to pack it in early and crack open a beer. It only actually happened a handful of times when I was there. People are moving around all the time. I saw several people get promoted and then demoted all within a few months. It really is true what everyone says about training. There isn't any. It's like a sinking ship that is frantically trying to stay afloat. Unless you have an extensive background in OnBase or Filebound I would avoid. I will not say avoid at all costs like some other reviews have said, but certainly proceed with caution. The turnover rate is through the roof.

      Pros

      Work with great people, meet a lot of new people (turnover is unbelievable), casual environment, casual dress, ping pong tables and Friday social hours.

      Cons

      Owner/president will only communicate with his management team (4-6 managers, depending on the week) that was selected because they always agree with him. For a small business (20-25 employees, depending on the week), communications were terrible and the politics were high. The president sits in his corner office and never takes the time to walk through the office and talk to folks that get all of the work done.

      We are sorry you feel Tom, the president, is not attentive to the employees. While he is very busy, I have found him very enjoyable to talk to and he always takes a little time to talk with people in the office. It is not common for an owner to be in the office daily and be so hands-on with the business. Thank you for your comments.

      Pros

      Work with great people, casual environment, ping pong tables and Friday social hours. Dress code is relaxed which is nice.

      Cons

      The new employees are treated well. Quick promotions followed by demotions. Experienced employees are overworked and under appreciated. You are micro managed and it's easy to lose confidence in your own abilities. Anyone with experience or differing views or ideas don't last long. Staying there more than 1-2 years is almost unheard of. Turnover is far too high for a service company.

      Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We recognize that in the past some position changes were made without thinking through completely, and the results were not always positive. We have learned immensely from this and have taken time to set clear road maps for the positions within WorldView while also taking into account the career goals of each employee. Backfilling positions have now become a larger priority in the promotion process. We have increased chances for training and internal promotion (the right way) and have already seen positive results!

      Here are some facts, make your own decision.

      Pros

      1. Good opportunity for entry level learning in IT 2. Good opportunity for advancement 3. Decent pay 4. Decent location 5. Overall good co-workers 6. Ping pong

      Cons

      From corresponding pros: 1. If you have "one" mistake, you will not make it past entry level 2. If you have "two" little mistakes, you will never have the opportunity to advance. If you are mistake free, you get opportunities for advancement because the other guy just left. 3. Decent pay is nice, but all seriousness money cannot by happiness. I have known several employees who left and took large pay cuts, but were happier than ever. 4. Q Street sucks after 7:45 am and after 5:00 pm. 5. The good co-workers all continue to exit, leaving only the teacher's pets. 6. What place doesn't offer something like this. Morale was so bad the past year, that the employees didn't even have their annual tournament. and more... 7. In the past year and a half, there have been at least 20-25 people either come or go, including 8 exits since December. But hey, at 22 staff members that's not bad right? :O 8. Management says one thing to the masses, but does another behind closed doors. This is clearly by the one positive "review". This person either is management undercover, or a new employee that has only seen what is shown to them, not what goes on behind those closed doors. Unfortunate, because the company has potential. There is business in that market. So take these "facts" into account and decide for yourself if you want to try and make a go of it. If so, good luck and may God have peace on your soul... sorry that last part was a joke, kind of.

      We appreciate your feedback. We do not want to provide an environment where you feel that you can’t make a mistake or advance. We all understand that no one is perfect. While WorldView has always looked for opportunities to promote from within the company, we are making this even more of a priority. We have developed an Internal Job board and are providing more opportunities for trainings and skills development to prepare our staff for promotions. We have recently promoted a member of our Client Services team to Systems Administrator, and others have begun working toward certifications.
