    I worked at SADA Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    SADA is a fast growing, cloud computing company known for innovation. Their team is comprised of smart, talented people from all different backgrounds. There is always something new to learn, diverse culture, great leadership and they promote performers from within.

    Cons

    I have no cons. SADA is an amazing company, I'm very grateful to have been able to contribute to their success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to always be improving in every way possible, setting the bar higher and higher.

    I have been working at SADA Systems full-time

    Pros

    SADA is rapidly growing every day! Due to rapid growth there is more room for personal and professional development then at large organizations. Since I started at SADA I’ve demonstrated interest in multiple different departments and each time was approached with an opportunity to transfer. The executive management team has created a “work hard, play hard” culture at SADA and values each and every employee. The people at SADA are some of the smartest people I have had the opportunity to work with and have gained more knowledge than I would have ever expected.

    Cons

    Match more on 401K and provide tuition/certification reimbursement and time flexibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    N/A There is an open door policy!!

    Pros

    - Family based work environment, every employee is treated like a family member and valued
    -Open door policy, the CIO & CEO actually listen to employee feedback
    -Great place to learn, company sponsors certifications and a great place to learn
    -Constant innovation and cutting edge technology, there is no other place that you can learn so much at such a short time
    -Great work life/ balance
    -Generous incentive program, one of the BEST in the industry

    Cons

    -Some of the not so positive feedback provided here is absolutely incorrect, SADA is one of the best places to work in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -We love your compassion, kindness and vision for your employees, keep it up.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. I've never worked at a place that was more supportive! Also get to learn a lot working with such a smart group of people.

    Cons

    The only bad thing that I can think of to say is that the Drive is too far (with traffic)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting from within!

    I have been working at SADA Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are key contributors here who keep the company afloat with their integrity and drive.

    Cons

    There are too many managers who are completely out of touch, and oftentimes grossly underqualified.

    Key resources are overly relied on and completely drained.

    Opinions and complaints about management are completely swept under the rug. Managers are not coached to improve practices that put their resources under duress.

    Sweeping corporate changes are communicated mainly through office gossip.

    Long hours with little to no reward, with generally extremely low pay (competitively across the industry).

    Inept operational practices, leading to less overall profitability. Barely controlled chaos. People are fired without warning, with no communication at all from management or HR to the remaining team members. The environment is toxic - fear and threats are used to gain results (sales-based company). Lunch once a week and a party with beer is intended to fix this.

    No vision or strategy for continued growth, no structure for operational/career growth is in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the right people in positions of leadership.

    I worked at SADA Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are a few great people, who make working there enjoyable (as much as it can be)

    Many insurance options to choose from

    Cons

    Some Managers/Directors use their titles/power to bully and belittle those that report to them

    Work life balance is terrible. Two weeks total PTO is given, and you’re looked upon negatively if you actually use your time.

    Different rules apply to different people. People are not held to the same company standards at all, varying by department or manager. Performance doesn't matter - all that matters is if your manager likes you.

    Culture is one of distrust and very negative overall. If you don’t like to gossip, you probably will not do well, as it is a very gossip based culture.

    Employees are disposable, job security is nonexistent. The turnover rate is off the charts for a small company. There is also very little career growth opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with trust and respect

    Pros

    A young, casual work environment

    Cons

    Specialized treatment by those in leadership roles.
    Overworked employees.
    Incompetent Management.
    Zero job security.
    Resources are completely disposable.
    Morale is constantly low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't make your employees happy, maybe it's time to look at yourselves.

    I have been working at SADA Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The company culture is great. I've never worked with such smart, hard working individuals!
    - The industry we work in is fast-paced and constantly changing, therefore, we strive to be agile as a company.
    - We have fun! Things such as monthly social gatherings, Pizza Tuesdays, ping pong tournaments, and core value activities are some of the things you may encounter here.
    - It's a family oriented business. You feel as if you matter here, rather than getting lost in numbers.

    Cons

    With food and ping pong tables, who wants to go home?!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue advocating for our culture.

    Pros

    Family owned company, good Corporate Location.

    Cons

    Overworked, Cares more about money than its employees, disorganized, pays under salary average, poor leadership, no opportunity for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show employees they matter more than performing at a high level. Put resources into developing employees and making them part of the family.
