What is health insurance like at Applied Systems?

Pros

Starting pay for entry level jobs is good. WFH for most jobs. They've handled the pandemic with no layoffs and have gone 100% remote. Free bagels on Tuesdays. Everyone I've worked with or come into contact with has been very professional.

Cons

The health insurance is very expensive. At least it is if you have to get family coverage.

What is the retirement plan like at Applied Systems?

Pros

Ample opportunities to work remote; remote worker setup is comprehensive and well thought out. Pay and benefits are decent for the industry. Good salary (but read on to decide whether it's worth it to you), prompt payment/direct deposit. Medical benefits effective on the first day of employment. 401k matching percentage was below average, with an outdated vesting schedule (most companies now offer 100% vested at the time of contribution). Many wonderful colleagues, and the line managers seem to care about their staff. On the whole, the clients were pleasant to work with, too.

Cons

Ridiculous workload/hours, fed by a mountain of needless paperwork. A glut of internal meetings, most of questionable value. Unrealistic utilization targets accompanied by continuous pressure to bill the clients for nearly every activity. Bullying and intimidation from the C-suite.

Advice to Management

Hire enough people to handle the pipeline so everyone can have a normal 8 hour workday, vs. a handful of people working 12-20 hour days on the regular. Lean out your processes and tools.
