    Pros

    The company has great benefits

    The company offers many company perks

    This is a great work environment that pushes you to grow both personally and professionally. I have learned so much from the Cydcor team and I feel proud of all that I have accomplished and learned.

    Cons

    This place is not for everybody. Not everybody likes to be pushed out of their comfort zone. You will be encouraged to give your best and grow. This is what has helped me grow so much professionally. If you do not like to to step out of your comfort zone, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Working every month with your team on their Personal Development plans is very helpful. Continue setting those meetings with your team since this is the best way to align goals and career development.

    Pros

    The corporate culture at Cydcor is Google-ish! Co-workers became friends, and the opportunity is abundant. Expect a solid work load, but one that is balanced by support from coworkers and upper management. Strong values, good benefits, and superior leadership.

    Vera Quinn, is THEE REASON the office maintains the spirit it does. Some often say you must drink the koolaid, but why wouldn't you? If you don't enjoy the people or the work you do, you probably should find a new job.

    If you get the opportunity to interview at Cydcor, relax! They Want to get to know you as a person, they brought you in because they believe you have the ability to do the job, however they will only hire you if you fit their culture and contribute to the awesome work environment.

    The opportunity is real. You must sacrifice and put the time and energy into the work to earn the rewards. Some may say they bribe you with opportunity, however, 90% of the window office managers started at the entry level.

    Always open to innovative ideas and better processes. Whether it is a simple change in procedure, or an idea that may cost big $$$$$. If it makes sense, they will listen and implement anything in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    Entry level employee pay is below market rate (you have to prove yourself first.). However, if you are promoted or brought in above entry level, the pay is at or above market rate.

    Great people, great team activities at work and away from work, motivational, Ping-pong/pool tables for your use anytime, snacks/coffee/food all the time, incredible COO in Very Quinn! Oh wait, these were all pros...

    If you don't buy into the vision and the culture, don't continue working there and spoil the Cydcor family. Drink the koolaide until you make the koolaide!

    Advice to Management

    I miss Cydcor and the opportunities and culture they have created. Don't ever let Vera leave, she is the best their is in a human being. Don't let your A's leave before paying them their deserved value. Great company, keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The people and only the people that work there. Mostly foreigners or people that really didn't do there research about this company.

    Cons

    Everything is a lie. From day one I knew it was a lie. No reimbursement for anything. I'm in NYC so you have to pay for your metro card after metro card to go b2b. Straight commission and long days for nothing. Also anyone that writes a positive review about this either really enjoys sales or is full of it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lieing and stop training your leaders to lie. This is not a management training program. It's b2b sales and that's it. There's 30 plus people at my office and there all waiting for that promotion. Cmon now. The work is just not worth the reward.

    Pros

    Cydcor gave me a chance. I worked at 2 different ICL's for a combined span of 2 years. The work was ridiculously challenging, but the people within the company cared about my development. When I started I was a spoiled entitled kid. Now I'm a weathered adult ready to take on the world, with tons of wisdom and experience. I know how to sell ideas, I know how to be successful no matter what, I know how to treat people kindly while being confident at the same time. I am now ready for the real-world. Without Cydcor, I would be living at my parent's hating the world. Now I have the experience of someone much older than me and I know there's nothing I'm afraid of. I made about 35-40K a year for my two years working there in, and because they taught me how to manage my money wisely, I now own a car with no payments and paid off 75% of my student loans. My hard work paid off and I now have powerful transferable skills for any work environment.

    Cons

    The work is incredibly tough. If you're not focused on developing yourself, making sacrifices, or becoming a tougher person, there is no point in working at a Cydcor ICL.

    Advice to Management

    "Opportunity" is a word used too much
