    Large company that cares nothing for the employees of the businesses they buy up.

    I worked at SYKES full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They will hire anyone (literally anyone)

    Cons

    The turn over rate is horrible since they will hire anyone. Sykes streamlines the management staff so your workload is almost unbearable. There is this push from somewhere up in higher management than makes everyone do more work in less time. They will offer you below the average to do your job or threaten to send your job overseas, and then cut your job anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let some Americans have some jobs. If you didn't overwork your staff to save a dollar you might actually see sucess here. Care about the people who work for you, not just the bottom line.

    I worked at SYKES full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good teacher for customer service class, opportunities to advance, many types of job choices after completing customer service representative job

    Cons

    Not enough staff to handle the number of trainees they are attempting to train, training went in some cases from 3pm to midnight. Very long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing the rules of the employment picture, changing shift hours, making 11 hour day, expanding work hours, added hard selling to the job as opposed to just mentioning product
