Pros

Good vacation policy. Co-workers are great people.

Cons

Syclo provides no support for career growth. Syclo doesn't give merit raises, only occasional, limited cost-of-living adjustments (based on annual CPI excluding energy and food).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know your employees and support their desire to improve themselves and their career. Expand the compensation options to include merit raises so that employees have the opportunity to improve their standard of living (rather than having it lowered by inflation every year).

    Pros

    Decent salary. In downtown Chicago office you can escape the Hoffman Estates environment, ran by yes men.

    Cons

    Everything else. Including threats to return to Hoffman Estates office even though you were hired to work downtown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow middle management to create processes, promote from within, stop quarterly meetings, match 401K, improve benefits, participate in Agile/Scrum seriously

    Pros

    Convenient suburb location
    Mobility is very interesting and impactful (but Syclo is not capitalizing)
    Baseline technology is sound (but Syclo is not continually improving its technology)

    Cons

    The benefit package is truly substandard....the most glaring example is ridiculously high health care costs
    Syclo has not continually evolved its technology; and competition is coming up with cutting edge alternatives
    Exec management has for the most part surrounded themselves by "yes" people, vs. realizing their shortcomings and hiring people to augment their skills and offer new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the money to offer an appropriate benefit plan to your employees; starting with healthcare
    Take chances, consult with outsiders that have helped grow companies of Syclo's current size to something bigger
    Analyze your competition to be able to appropriately position Syclo's technology moving forward
