Solid employer to build experience in sales as an intern.
Sales Intern (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NE18 May 2017
They have a good intern program where they show you several facets of the business and train you to be an effective sales rep. The pay is generous for a college student but bureaucracy and favoritism prevent advancement.

Marketing (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE6 April 2017
I sincerely appreciate the professionalism of the company and the work mentality. At Sandhills I have opportunities to prove myself through the work that I do on a daily basis and know that I can continue to grow as a professional.

The fast paced environment gives you the opportunity to learn in an exciting environment that evolves within the industries you work in.

Productive workplace with some amazing coworkers
Auction Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NE9 March 2017
You learn alot in this very open workplace environment. The people made the job and the environment fun and exciting. Depending on the manager, the management was relaxed enough to give you space. Some managers liked to micromanage constantly, making the job seem more tedious.
Pros
vacation days as soon as you start
Cons
no 401k

Good Product/Bad Management
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE16 January 2017
They have developed a great product but their management is terrible. They never listen to any of their employees when feedback is provided. When you do try and provide feedback they label you a complainer. Listed to your employees to avoid losing some great talent like you constantly are.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
bad management, very outdated policies

Good first job, but don't stay here

This is a good place to work right after college. The pay is good but the benefits are mediocre. Company is run in an old fashioned way. Management is incompetent, especially at the Scottsdale office.

Make yourself a list of what's important to you and your job. If that list contains;

If your list looks more like;
-Unlimited time off

....then keep on looking.

Good place to work as developer
Systems Application Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE2 June 2016
The people who work at Sandhills are good people to work with and they treat you fair. The work isn't bad. Wearing suits is the biggest downfall. The culture isn't great compared to most software companies.
Pros

Healthy earning workplace
Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE25 April 2016

Pros
Rewarding pay
Cons
Rigid enviroment

Stressful working environment with little leadership but high rewards
Regional Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE22 March 2016
Travelled 60-70 days a year visiting current customers and locating new leads. Working with both print and web medium. Management provides little guidance besides negative reinforcement. The hardest part is the initial sale, after that it was good repeat business. It was also very difficult to get payment from customers and if they went bad debt that comes out of my pocket.
Pros
Potential high pay
Cons
High stress and travel

Good for the money, bad for the flexibility
Sales and Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, ENG28 December 2015
You can make good money, you cannot grow if you don't fit the company culture.

They are the market leader in their field and bill a lot due to their huge customer base.

not a fun place to work
International business developer Intern (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NE1 August 2015

Pros
learning experience, traveling, husker tickets, and food give aways for christmas
Cons
benefits are bad, hollidays are non existant, managers are not friendly, family members are benefited over other employees

One of the better paying places for editorial in Nebraska.
Multiple Roles (IT, Ad Sales, Editorial) (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NE30 January 2012
The benefits have improved since I was there. For example, first year used to be no paid vacation, but I believe you get at least one week paid when you start.

If it's the first place you've ever worked, then you may not be missing anything, but for women there's a very formal dress code and for men it's suit and tie daily--even if you never see a customer.

Features a wide variety of jobs and some good opportunity to make a very comfortable wage, but that also may require some patience.

You need to be okay with being given direction while not being able to provide as much feedback as you'd like.

Left on good terms, but cannot imagine going back to work there again.
Pros
close to lincoln airport and i-80.
Cons
no room for feedback, can be draconian.
