Here's what people have asked and answered about working for and interviewing at Abacus Data Systems.
In all honesty, I told my friends and family that I was unemployed and still looking for work instead of admitting that I worked here for this company. I felt so embarrassed and ashamed to work for this company that I really didn't want anyone to know that this was my employer. Sad, but 100% true..
We believe that, while you're at work, you give it your all. You take on extra projects. You go outside your scope to make the company better. And you solve every problem that you encounter - from helping clients make sure that their documents are saved successfully in the Abacus Private Cloud, to ensuring that our Twitter account is #onpoint. But even superheroes need vacations. So in 2017, we created our new, unlimited PTO policy.
What does unlimited PTO mean, exactly? There are no hidden pitfalls or "gotchas" - unlimited PTO means that you have an unlimited amount of vacation days to use. Need to take a day off to fix your car? Take it. Have a hankering to hike Mt. Whitney? Do it. Swells coming in from the South? Go surf them. We understand that you have demands and interests outside of the office that you can't always schedule in advance. As long as you're doing your job, you can live life and work too.
It also means that we trust our employees. YOU are responsible for making sure your tasks and projects are still getting done regardless of the time you take away from the office.
And lastly -- we want you to excel at work and at home. You are a complete person and we treat you like one.

Just avoid them altogether! The interview is meant to draw you in. Once you start working here, trust me you WILL definitely regret it! Run for the door quickly
Other than occasional free snacks offered at their weekly sales meetings, there are none. However, when you factor in the blatant public humiliation that the CEO subjects you to in front of the ENTIRE company about your poor sales performance, a free bag of potato chips or free soda really isn't worth it in the long run.
Promised an 8 hour work day 5 days a week. Now expected to work mandatory overtime and On-Call rotation including company holidays.
