definitlly remembered
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.

Great place
It is a great company in general. Medical benefit isn't top notch for the industry but its ok. PTO is a little in a sense that you can combine holidays with PTO.
Pros
Laid back

Would not Recommend
During my time with this company - 1 year, I had a revolving door of managers. The company messed up on my benefits and was not willing to correct their own error.

Excellent company
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.
Pros
Supported telecommuting, flexible hours, great clients
Cons
Contract ended

Interesting and Educational Place to work.
OK place to work. Could be more secure in job security and career goals. Management could be a little more efficient. However, I enjoyed working with the American Systems Team.

Make the best of your opportunities
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.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
Expensive Benefits, leave policy, commutes

Opportunities of a large company, feel of a small company!
I enjoy recruiting for a company that appreciates their employees! Being an Employee-Owned company is a terrific benefit. I am proud to be part of the AMERICAN SYSTEMS family.

Where They See My Potential & Give Me a Challenge
I plan on staying with AMERICAN SYSTEMS for many years to come. I have been with AMERICAN SYSTEMS for 9 months and in that short time I have been given increasing responsibilities, so much so that I am now in charge of our outreach engagement and am creating and developing an internal outreach program. My director sees my potential and allows me to take on projects that I am passionate about and make them my own, while still giving me the support and guidance that I need. I have always felt supported here and have been given many opportunities for supervision. As a junior employee, I was fortunate enough to have been given a mentor who met with me regularly and helped me develop as a recruiter and a professional, in general. My days are always full, which I love. My coworkers are very interactive and engaging. All in all, I'm happy to wake up in the morning and come into work.
Pros
Interaction; challenge; opportunities; fulfillment
Cons
Traffic surrounding area

Good Company
As I started my career with American Systems, I was raw and didn't know anything. The staff with any lead tech was willing to help you in career path and teach you anything you wanted to know. Learn a lot there and would still be there if wasn't for other avenues I wanted to take, in which the company couldn't able to provide.
Pros
Great starter company to advance
