Great place to work. Pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Current Employee - Software Engineer IV

I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- It's a work hard, play hard environment (get stuff done, play pool/fooseball/xbox)
- Opportunity to work with lots of new technologies
- Plenty of opportunities to take charge, if you're willing to work for it
- Most of management are smart, talented, hardworking folks

Cons

- Tends to hire straight-out-of college, so more senior developers end up training from the ground up
- There are still quite a few legacy products that either need to be maintained, or need to be considered when writing new code
- Sometimes the external demands dictate software release dates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    The co-workers are pretty good at this company.

    Cons

    The executives care more about spending money on their offices then on their employees. Mass lay offs every week.

    Pros

    Company has come a long way after being acquired in 2007. Better management dedicated to cleaning up many messes has made it stronger financially and technologically.

    Cons

    Company spends too much money on "stuff" rather than investing in the employees for the long term. There has been a huge amount of employee turnover over the last few years for two main reasons- opportunity and compensation. The company is a good start for someone coming out of college or someone looking for a fresh start. While they have added a number of new customers, it is also true that they have lost quite a few as well.
