    If the jobs haven't already been outsourced...

    Web Programmer (Former Employee) Deerfield Beach, FL

    ProsFriendly employees (IT Department).

    ConsOld laptop computers in the IT Department. Working 10-12 hours a day, including weekends (IT Department). The "management" may care, but the higher-ups don't; those that affect your salary and benefits. Most positions have already been outsourced, so I doubt this review will ever be read, but if you do consider a position here, keep in mind you may soon be training your future $10k/year replacement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade the IT Department's PC's -- Visual Studio 2013 is recourse-intensive (SSD a MUST). Try to minimize the 10-12 hour days, with working weekends. It's been proven time and time again that happy employees are productive employees! And hiring 10 outsourced employees at the last phase of a project has shown to be disastrous!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working for SYX

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe employees establish a family culture amongst themselves. Management should look at the benefits of this and try to expand the idea

    ConsBenefits could be way better - too expensive for hourly workers - keep getting less and less

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at each division and run the company like a big corporation, not a bunch of little ones with an imaginary set of corporate rules

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This is an awesome place to work. Great careers are made here.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsYoull get pad well, you'll be treated with respect and dignity, your family will be held in high regard, you will accomplish a lot in your career, you will get ahead.

    ConsThere is no downside. This is a great place to work. Parking can be a challenge, especially when it rains.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep paying people well. Do more to support the community. Think longer term. Do a better job of reviewing employees to give feedback.

    Avoid working for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsSome of the benefits are decent, medical and 401K

    ConsIf you aren't one of the top executives at this company better look for another opportunity because you will not be appreciated or rewarded for your work.

    Not a bad place to work.

    Oracle Database Administrator (Current Employee)

    Pros1 No work pressure
    2 My lead was quite co-operative.
    3 Since the staff strength is low there is ample of oppurtunity to grow.
    4 Salary is decent.

    Cons1 No standard policy for employees.
    2 Some employee get undue adavantage because they are more equal then others since they know or are related to people in higher post.
    3 Management is not concerned about employee welfare.
    4 Managers dictates break time even when there is no work and the same manager will convinently ignore others mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company can be made a better place by implementing simple employee Welfare practices
