    Pros

    Great Culture, Opportunity for advancement and learning, Engaged HR, and many talented employees. The Company has made a huge pivot over the last few years which has resulted in significantly improved software products(s) and a fantastic culture. It is clear to me that the company has significant upward momentum and I'm glad to be on board.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn!

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on your employee engagement and building the technology for tomorrow.

    I have been working at basys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always room to grow and learn.
    You'll never be bored
    The salaries are fair, and the benefits are great
    You have the ability to work from home

    Cons

    Same as at every company - some of the management team have their favorites, so not everyone is treated the same.
    It's nice to have plenty of work, I don't feel like I ever have to worry about job security, but sometime its too much.
    After you reach a certain level in the company, there is no where to go but laterally.

    Advice to Management

    I would remind management to focus just as much on the current customers then they are on new business. They seem to be in such a hurry to get new products out the door so to increase sales, but the current customers and the current product as just as important

    Pros

    Great food provided at trainings/meetings, I got to travel a lot.

    Cons

    They low ball you on pay and play favorites with raises. PTO is terrible. Cheap on technology. Bogus review to pay employee less. Non standard tech and most skills don't transfer because of custom software. High turnover.a lot of employees leave quickly. I would check LinkedIn and ask former employees they will relate

    Advice to Management

    Change PTO, offer market value salaries, Be more fair.

    I have been working at basys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    TEAMWORK. I feel really close with the people I work with and I actually like them. If you want to be a part of team and really feel valuable in a company, basys is the place to be. OPPORTUNITY - always chances to grow in your career and they really strive to make it so everyone can grow and in a timely fashion - you're not waiting forever. Management is always trying to find new ways to make it a better place to work - and they are really doing a fantastic job of it. Its refreshing to be someplace that is ALWAYS willing to listen to your feedback and then ACTUALLY take it and do something with it.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment, but that's because we're a growing company. People want our product because its good, so you can imagine it would be faced paced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I worked at basys full-time

    Pros

    Good people, decent benefits, Flex work arrangements.

    Cons

    They do not like people with opinions. You are safe, only as long as you can be the Yes man to the leaders. Focus is on avoiding conflicts at all costs, instead of understand why there is a conflict . Very poor planning and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to your employees once in a while

    Pros

    basys is a company where you get back what you put in. It is a rewarding environment to work at; because of the size you can feel the team effort from all departments. If you are looking for a place where help is given, at basys you will receive that assistance. Even through the fast paced environment , there are many of co-workers whom are willing to help you learn and grow daily. The company is heading in the right direction and I do not see that changing anytime in the near to distant future.

    Cons

    Takes some time to get familiar with the company's field of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - the direction of basys is on the right track.

    I have been working at basys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started with basys back in July. It is a 30 year old small company that is continues to do process improvement. They have a great team culture with flexible work schedules and casual business attire. The employees are all friendly and helpful with a broad range of experience levels.

    Cons

    Company operates in a very unique market, there is a learning curve to get up to speed on the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to staff for internal improvement and keep pushing customers to standard so the model can be easily replicated.

    Wonderful group of smart employees that all work together and get along. Great leadership, customers really do come first and as a team we all get to make the customers requests a reality. The organized method of moving up in the company and the organized knowledge transfer are excellent!

    Cons

    I honestly can say, I do not have any cons for basys.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing!
