Cafeteria (though the food is not so great)
Location in the tri-valley
Great co-workers

Cons

No telecommuting
Limited vacation time and forced to take 1 week over the holidays
No promotion despite years of excellent performance reviews

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your valued employees better, let them work from home, give them more opportunity to move up in the company. Offer praise when deserved.

    I worked at Sybase

    Pros

    Paid slightly higher salary than the other systems integrators I interviewed with. At the time I had about 4 years of software engineering experience in cleared government work.

    Cons

    Generally treated like the pawn you are. Was not at all impressed with the skill or competence of the management. Seemed like there was a high churn rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think every company says that it will be easy to move between contracts. Sybase was no different but when I wanted to move there was very little available despite their large footprint within the DC area.
