    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Fantastic work environment, great breakrooms, relaxation rooms, gym in building, fun events and parties.
    - Excellent advancement opportunities
    - Great benefits, 401k w/matching, HSA Matching, Adoption Assistance, etc.
    - Family friendly
    - Willing to take chances on good candidates
    - Wonderful Managers, very professional **see Cons

    I seriously love working here, the only reason I put any cons is for full disclosure.

    Cons

    - Health Insurance is High Deductible/HSA
    - Actual pay is not as high as other companies, however the fringe benefits make this a bit more of a meh than a con
    - Performance Reviews are arbitrary and inconsistent
    - Lack of professional development for employees, advanced training and skills improvement

    **Some managers are clueless and lack leadership skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As often as we are asked to review our peers and we are reviewed. It would be nice if there were some bottom up reviews of supervisors, managers and department heads.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There have been many family focused activities throughout the year. From movies to trick or treating, to a wonderful Christmas Party with Santa just for the kids, all have been a hit. SirsiDynix realizes that it is more than just making the work life of the employee enjoyable, but making sure the whole family is happy. My kids think I work in the coolest place and I would agree.

    Cons

    Not having Diet Mountain Dew onsite. Every company I have worked for has problems, but SirsiDynix strives to constantly improve.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every manager I've worked with has been very interested in helping me succeed. They care about their people. It's a fun place to work with a great corporate culture. I really enjoy the good work/life balance. The people I work with are good at what they do and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Salaries start kind of low. I wish we got more paid holidays (not all the federal holidays are included in our holiday schedule, but we do get "flex days" we can use whenever we like).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to hire more experienced developers.

    Best company I have ever worked for

    Current Employee - Senior Web Developer in Lehi, UT

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are very competitive. Main office is a new building and is a very clean, comfortable place to work. Environment is upbeat, but not stressful. Job is motivating, but not overwhelming. Always learning and improving on the job. Very accommodating for family time. Break room, food, sodas, etc are great. I rarely leave for lunch. I love the food that is brought in.

    Cons

    Inter-departmental fueds are annoying, specifically between development/project management and other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help certain departments to work better with other departments. I think if each department understood better what the other departments do, they would have more respect and tolerance for them.

    Pros

    The leadership at SirsiDynix takes the time to know the employees. Not just HR, but the CFO and other company leaders walk around and check in. They take the time to learn about our families and career goals. Then, they work to help make those goals a reality.

    Cons

    As with all large companies communication between teams could be better.

    Exciting, uplifting, professional place to work

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upbeat, positive, work atmosphere. For being a midsize company, I feel like we are a fairly tight-knit group. In that regard, it feels like many of the small companies I have worked for. Lots of good friends.

    Advancement opportunities. Safe learning environment. SirsiDynix invests time and training into its employees.

    It's satisfying to belong to a company that is a leader in its industry. It’s fun to tell people about where I work and the innovative, cutting edge, features coming out in SirsiDynix's products lately. Real value is being created for the industry and SirsiDynix's customers.

    Extremely comfortable amenities (break room diversions, "zen room" with massage chairs, etc), new building.

    Regular activities, tournaments, contests and socials put on by HR and supported by dept heads. Always great food.

    Cons

    The pay could be more competetive. Professionals that already know what they are doing (especially compared to smaller companies) could wish for higher pay, but in the case of someone that is looking for excellent training from an established mid-sized company, and a chance to build a real career, it's perfect. SirsiDyinx is the place to be.

    Several years ago there was sufficient enough "clean up" being implimented by ownership that job security was a common concern. After leaning things out, now that ownership is building back up, things feel stable and secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! We like this place. Upper management has set a good tone that trickles down through the ranks. Thanks for not leading by fear. There are is enough awesome about this company to stay enthusiastic about what we are doing.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, great office environment, good location--convenient, new, modern office space, well-managed, good benefits package, fun fringe benefits.

    Cons

    Low growth industry, some customers are wary of SIrsiDynix's past behaviors. They are working to improve that but still have work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to get to industry standards.

    Pros

    I really feel part of a great team. There is plenty of support between colleagues and staff are encouraged to share ideas. Benefits are really good, and there are rewards for special effort. Lots of regular training as well. Great vibes around the place. There are always opportunities for promotion as openness is welcomed.

    Cons

    There are too many internal processes.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    SirsiDynix is very selective in who they hire. Once you make it through the screening process and come on board, you realize that you are part of an elite group that is great to work with. SirsiDynix values their employees and goes to great lengths to create a positive work environment that is pleasant, enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. I've had other job opportunities come up while working at SirsiDynix, but they don't compare to what I have here. When I get the itch to move on, I just move to a different position at SirsiDynix.

    Cons

    I started with SirsiDynix when they were located in Provo. The recent move to Lehi means more travel each day. I like the building we are in. I just don't like the 20 minute drive twice a day.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The facility is great: environmentally friendly, clean, lots of light, open floor plan, great furniture, PLUSH common area/game room, subsidized cafeteria, free soda, free coffee/espresso/cappuccino, relaxation room with massage chairs, lactation room, work out facility, walking distance to Front Runner.

    Many efforts have been made to create a positive culture and employees are definitely engaged. CFO encourages a “Work Hard, Play Hard” environment. Managers have made it a point to recognize hard work! Multiple activities are hosted for employee's and thier families on a regular basis.

    Company is flexible with works schedules, which is a plus if you need to work from home due to a sick family member or other such issues.

    Cons

    The Company has definitely gone through some growing pains in creating its Technology Centre.

    Implementation of a wellness program has been a difficult change for employees.

    While some additions have been made in recent months, there is a lack of non-fast food eating establishments.

    Although fairly short, the traffic on the main road to the freeway can back up and add 5-10 minutes to my commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving in the direction of employee recognition. Remain open to receiving employee feedback. Also, continue to keep employee’s apprised of the Company’s goals and initiatives.
