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

    Pros

    Family like culture, where everyone is happy to help each other even if they are under a deadline too. The people who work here are awesome. If you want to to something new all you have to do is ask most of the time. Other great perks include good insurance and 401K matching program.

    Cons

    One of biggest the biggest challenges at Syska is having to figure out your own path to moving up in the organization. It was not until recently that there was even career path charts available. It is also hard to forge relationships with other employees that are outside of your office. This usually only happens if you are lucky enough to get involved in a project that requires you to travel to another office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach managers to be better managers and leaders, not just project managers. Focus on the team members.
