    Pros

    Since it is a small company, you get to learn a variety of things that is not directly related to your job.

    Cons

    Bad upper management. They make a lot of mistakes and expect the employees to cover for them. There is literally no planing before a project. The management just expects the employees to "wing it". The only reason they get projects is because they underbid all of their competitors. Very long hours and NO overtime! Some of the employees are very difficult to work with since they have a huge ego.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire some real professionals (upper management) to do the job. The lack of competency and reliability is staggering! If not at least compensate the employees a little better

    I worked at SDI Industries as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great resources and mass potential to be a leading industry in their field.

    Cons

    The actual website and some of the video presentations are of poor scale and can be greatly improved by a real professional to handle these projects promptly and efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to get rid of some of the workers that are making your business look amateurish and hire a better web designer and videographer to start and this will flourish your business and present it in a more professional manner. This will also built you a better stance against your competitors.

    I worked at SDI Industries (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary. Good Benefits. Nice people

    Cons

    Disconnect with all departments and employees. Accounting department understaffed for company size and needs better qualified and experienced people. Painful to see so many errors and lost money due to a variety of mistakes in accounting, production and contract fulfillment. Shipping department and Inventory is out of control ! (No control!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified and experienced accounting clerks and accountants. Inventory has to be correct! Shipping has to be connected to the accounting department every single day, every single shipment, all aspects including the product shipped, quantity, reason, carrier, cross reference PO and or Job #, Cost to ship!!!! Name of person requesting shipment. Contracts must be understood by all and billed to customer accordingly and correctly. Travel, Freight Costs, Permits and Engineering Fees for drawings and Stamps, Foreign Canadian Tax are billable but not conveniently given to accounts receivable billing department.

    Pros

    If you are in need of a paycheck, that's it. There are no other pros.

    Cons

    Man, this place feels like you're in prison. Everybody watches your every move. The employees are not happy. Management could care less about anybody. They will fire you for no apparent reason whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees make a happy company.

    I have been working at SDI Industries

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a new trade with lots of travel. Must be motivated to learn as much as possible to gain experience in a company that is expanding rapidly.

    Cons

    Nobody will give you anything unless you ask. The only real downside is living in hotels. Salary based position means you will be working 60+ hours a week .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should be handled by qualified personnel without making you feel inferior although my experience is in a related field and I have a bachelors degree, there will be times you feel you aren't given enough credit to perform the tasks that you feel confident you are ready to tackle.It is almost feel like you should keep your head down and play dumb til you are called upon.
