    I have been working at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Close relationship to IBM - the company was built on that.

    Cons

    Close relationship to IBM makes their sales and consultant teams think of only 1 architecture or solution. The company is stuck on IBM and can't get off this single track mindset while meanwhile IBM increasingly would rather do it's own sales itself.
    Poor relationships with other major enterprise vendors, other than a few 2nd-tier h/w vendors.
    Poor Management - poorly trained
    Poor integration with purchased companies - infighting
    Positioned around single point products rather than complete solutions
    Not positioned at all for business solutions
    Organized along lines of personal relationships rather than as businesses - tends towards cliques or people that don't work well with other groups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better choose management candidates

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Good money and benefits. Excellent incentives for people who want to growth their career and continue to stay current with technology and education

    Cons

    Management let go too many good people, when they let the investment firms "move in" and direct the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attention to what the people are doing in your organization, to not let go of the wrong ones.
