    Pros

    Plenty of space and opportunity to grow. Syska has 16 offices including 2 offices in China and Dubai, which gives employees the opportunity to move around, explore open positions both locally and globally while balancing that with unexpected life changes. Established within the market Great atmosphere Competitive benefits and paid vacations Half-day Fridays Flexible managers Life/work balance Plenty of technical support and knowledge

    Cons

    Salaries have room to improve Satellite offices tend to get neglected, a little

    Advice to Management

    Not every great project manager or good engineer automatically translate into a leader. Find good leaders with superior skills to tend to your teams needs. The entire leadership team doesn't have to be comprised of technical engineers, this can be a weakness. Let employees feel involved in the implemented changes as opposed to 'dictating from the top'. Keep up the good work!
