Lost their way
System Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 July 2017
Long View Systems "prides" themselves on offering a "No regrets" career however they have a hard time living up to this.

Management has little or no direction and is constantly chasing whatever is new and "shiny", abandoning established and profitable products and services because they are no longer "sexy".

Great Culture and Work Environment
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 November 2016
It's a great place to work, with great values and culture. The management can get busy and see non-responsive at times, but they do care about their clients and employees a great deal. Salary isn't as competitive as you would wish it would be climbing the ladder internally, however I hear if you are coming in externally, it's decent.
Pros
free lunches twice a week, great social programs, fun group of people to work with
Cons
salary bumps internally are very slow and small at times

What a relief on leaving
Solution Architect (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 November 2015
Worked there for nearly 5 years, great bunch of people initially and on the ground with clients and projects, but recently, the last year or so it seems to have lost focus and touch with many employees, the economy in Alberta means they are letting many good people go, which has the knock on impact of hitting service levels and capabilities for their customer base and dropping staff moral to a rock bottom, now many senior & key technical people have moved on or are looking to move due to lack of job security with LVS especially in Calgary.

Its a shame the whole, positive can do vibe of the company changed so rapidy with recent new management and major internal re orgs that put a halt on many peoples career aspirations and plans, even before the recession, with this now impacting on staff and taking many months to deliver on internally, I would not recommend LVS as an employer of choice any more.

I foresee LVS will also need to change their business model, moving away from one of their prior key strengths in the market, maintaining a permanent staff on which they could rapidly pull for customer needs to an increase of contract employees for customer specific projects as they win business in the future, with little difference from "the other guy", they will need to compete more on price alone, as opposed to capability to deliver (which has been much eroded with recent major staff reductions) and they then will have to compete for the contractors out there too.
Pros
Good group of smart people, great xmas event, good work life balance and package
Cons
Loosing direction, new management brought in from outside lacks ethics and compassion

Good culture, but victim of corporate shoddiness in Canada
System Consultant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 August 2015
You're a resource. Plain and simple. Just as when they run out of toner, when they run out of work you are on the street. There is not much else to tell.

The people you will be working with are great though. They are all top notch and very knowledgeable.
Pros
Good people to work with.
Cons
No economy resistance.

Great perks no advancement
Systems Consultant (Former Employee) –  Edmonton26 May 2015
The perks are great, but the money spent on the perks could be better invested in the employees salaries. Regardless of effort and tenure, salary never increases.
Pros
Free Lunches, Jasper Park Lodge for christmas party, company paid events
Cons
no advancement in company, salary never increases
