    I worked at Long View Systems

    Pros

    Working with people of different background and Technical expertise. A chance to learn new things.

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism to certain employees especially during time of slow work. Some managers do not care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Place employees that have been with the company first before hiring outside or bringing in new employees. Try getting positions in various industries rather than oil.

    I worked at Long View Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - working with great people who I have made some lifetime friends with - when you get a bit of a push on your career it can be fun

    Cons

    - too many middle men to get to the person you need an answer from - very clique environment - you don't have much say on your career path - meetings about having future meeting seems like a waste of time - meetings that are booked on your days off and then your team lead wonders why you weren't there - requests for certain shifts are considered and then given to other employees - seeing the middle management guys have fun and goof off while you are working hard at getting things done is a morale drop

    Advice to Management

    Need to be honest to employees on changes that effect their lives, as well as advise them on requests that can't be done instead of being lead on

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some middle management actually try to uphold the one core pillar that should matter the most, "Integrity". That is the "Pro" folks.

    Cons

    C-levels and Directors do not know the meaning of the word Honesty. Everyone makes false promises and there seems to be a race to see who breaks theirs first. Salary "negotiations" are a farce, job progression is none existent unless you bend a knee. Did I mention broken promises.. and flat-out lies from upper management. Wage theft, excessively long hours required (depending on department), the list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from the top down. Eliminate the known players (liars) that are the main reason for the exodus of the best talent every few months. Reduce the salary of none-production overhead staff (management) and pay Technical Staff a competitive wage.

    I worked at Long View Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I liked to refer to LVS as a contract/staff-aug company that provides the benefit of a "aflac insurance" policy. What I mean by this is some times when your contract ends at a client site LVS will place you at another client. You keep billing and you get a pay check.

    Cons

    Extra work performed over your 40 isn't really paid out at a rate that encourages extra work to be performed. Typical PBR for employees is around 15% of your profit to the company. Lets say you bill out at $75.00 per hour, you might get as much as $11.25 per hour, deduct 40% of that for tax's since its a bonus and you get $6.75. With that said no one knows the actual math that goes into the black box they use to calculate your monthly bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Show your people the math behind PBR bonuses and speak to it. Leadership in Denver is lacking. They give the impression that they only care about revenue and don't care about the needs of the individual contributors. I've heard working in Canada is much better then the US when working for LVS.
