Project Manager (Former Employee) – Chantilly, VA 20151 – August 21, 2017
For the most part the management is good but they still get those rogue super managers who have there head where the sun don't shine, but it is a employee owned company so if you get under the right manager it could work.
Scheduler / Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Chantilly, VA – March 6, 2019
It has been a long time since I worked there but when I did I telecommuted 100% of the time. I didn't really know anyone in the office. I communicated mainly with the client. Quarterly I would travel to meet with the client for three-day meetings. I really enjoyed the work and learned a lot. The contract ended, though, so I had to move on.
Supported telecommuting, flexible hours, great clients
Analyst (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 21, 2019
Orlando office has children pretending to run things. They don't have any idea about respect. A lot is promised to the client but not much is known or planned on how they can deliver. Everyone is spoken to as a child because that's what children know how to do. The company doesn't try to fix the problems in the Orlando office because they don't want to see that the people causing the problems are the ones pretending they are fixing problems.
No pros. Work at a professional organization and you will be better off.
No planning. Management doesn't know how to fix problems or interact with people.

SHIPBUILDING SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Mississippi – December 4, 2018
American Systems cares about the employee. I am the only Employee on this contract. The work is not strenuous and my Manager is available, from D.C., with just a phone call. The government personnel here are easy to work with, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable.
Cable Technician IV (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – September 24, 2018
American Systems is a great place to work if you know where and what you want to be! You have to have a vision and go with it. Stay determined and focused. This is a company where a tech can easily fall through the cracks and be looked at as just part of the crew. So, you have to advocate for yourself, be proactive and stay on top of the little things that make you a great employee.
Junior Marine Engineer (ISEA Rep) (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA 92108 – September 21, 2018
Productive and fun place to work. However, there is no job security due to lack of Government to follow with contracts arrangements. Apart from that, I enjoyed every single day I spent working for American Systems.
Sr. Test Engineer (Current Employee) – Hill AFB, UT – September 17, 2018
The company hires professionals to staff government support contracts. I had a great deal of respect for the company and management. The job is extremely dependent upon the government agency that awards the contract.
Good people within the company, strong professional culture.
Senior Technical Trainer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 13, 2018
Our team was removed from the corporate culture, as the corporation base is in Virginia. Despite this, our VPs maintained good contact and a pulse on what we were doing. I felt the company was professional and cared about the employees.
I have been an employee-owner at American Systems for five years now. The work is interesting and engaging, and the culture values each employee and emphasizes work/life balance. Employee ownership fosters an atmosphere of accountability and dedication to quality.
