I have been working at SRC full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits and good pay. People genuinely care about their work and each other. Company really tries to take care of its employees.

Cons

Some people kept around just because they've been here forever. Satellite offices seem like different companies. Culture sometimes feels closed and unwilling to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More investment in the R in R&D. Need to stretch further and expand client base. Don't claim to be experts where we aren't. Support feels overstaffed (excluding IT).

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

    - Great facilities, equipment and training to get my job done well
    - Flexible and family-friendly - they encourage work/life balance
    - Supportive management
    - Great people to work with - feels like a second family
    - Opportunities to explore other areas and skills
    - You go home feeling like you're contributing to something good and helping to make a positive difference

    Cons

    - Everyone has some bad days at work but in general, I'm 98% satisfied and content w/my job and the company
    - Some people resistent to change and their opinions slow progress
    - Enviornment that allows people to be involved in many things. Collaboration is good - just not on minor projects/decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to pursue strategic plan and help others to see the big picture/long term value. Give more people, more responsibility, and hold them accountable for results. Keep training and guiding employees with ideas and the vision that can keep us successful for years to come.

    I worked at SRC

    Pros

    There is potential to do great work and work alongside some truly dedicated and talented people. There truly is a not-for profit advantage in that the drive to maximize profit simply does not exist.

    Cons

    The company has simply grown too fast and has outstripped their local talent pool and if you aren’t sitting at Syracuse, you simply don’t count. Decisions are made, people are promoted and the business is run all based on your location. This might be tolerable, except that the Sr. Managers and “support” staff are inept, nasty, self-righteous closed minded little people who can’t imagine that there is a way to do things that wasn’t invented in Syracuse. Their much ballyhooed president lasted 5 months on the job before throwing in the towel. I suspect he wanted to make some much needed changes and was told “no way” by the Board of Trustees. The Boards’ next move was to put a local boy in charge and move the current president to Chairman of the Board. Anyone see a pattern here?

    They have been living high on the hog from the profits they made off of a few key products (CREW and LCMR) and really no idea how to manage. Instead of using those profits to grow the business, they hired local people to stand up needless training, “develop new business” and expand service departments. All without any regard to what would happen when the war(s) ended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside of Syracuse-stop paying lip service to the "satellite" offices and support them! Hire a talented CEO and get rid of Roberts!
