Pros

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. There will never not be an reason not to be busy. Great for people who love to work. The salary is within acceptable ranges and Most management is pleasent enough to deal with.

Cons

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. The have rules laid out for how you should do your job. There is no real room for error or slow days in their minds. If they pay you for 40 hrs and work only comes to 30hrs, they will eventually find 4 people in the same boat and remove one to spread the work around. This makes for a somewhat tense desire to find work by the more "go getting" employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everything worker do can be arrange in such a way to have standards that don't change. You can't just expect every job to go as planned

    Great company with too much beauracracy.

    Pros

    Large corporation with significant room to grow. Diverse product offerings allow for hedging against market fluctuations. Heavy process discipline can be positive for someone who likes structure. Career opportunities are excellent, if you're willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Focus is on audits and reporting, rather than driving change and results, which tends to inhibit entrepreneurial ideas and risk taking. Signifcant investments in new products not yielding high ROI, placing pressure on cost reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push down decision making to lower levels and focus on results, rather than budgets or process. Who audits all of the auditors? :-)

    Great company to work for, but don't expect the greatest benefits or any large raises

    Pros

    It is a small company and there is room to grow. You will be challenged to make a name for yourself, but once you do you will be called on again and and again. The company is stable and if you are a technical person, then your job will be secure as long as they keep winning contracts.

    Cons

    They are CHEAP! Yes, they will promote you, give you praise, use you as a subject matter expert repeatedly... but when it comes to giving out raises, SGS is as stingy as they get. I've heard stories of people promoted to Program Manager positions who have been told that they will get no raise until they prove themselves! Well, why give them the promotion if they haven't already proved themselves??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so cheap and start listening to your employees. You took a survey almost a year ago and NOTHING has been done to improve our benefits.
