    Pros

    Challenging, yet collaborative team environment. Family owned company offers nice perks!

    Cons

    Company is aggressively growing & work/life balance can be lacking at times!

    Advice to Management

    Work / life balance is key for most in staying long term with a company. Also, flexible work schedules help!

    Pros

    I love the culture of SI Group. The company is family owned and that is the way they treat their employees- like family. The work-life balance is great. They are always willing to work with me as long as I am willing to work with them in return. Couldn't ask for more.

    Cons

    One of the current challenges is that SI Group is in the midst of growing. This isn't always the easiest thing to adapt to.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. They work hard to foster development and education. They give you credit for previous work experience when considering time off, which is a huge perk! They treat their employees as a valuable asset and work hard to maintain a great relationship with them.

    Cons

    Due to a largly aging workforce there is some potential for knowledge loss. This is being mitigated by the new hiring and the company pushing for documentation and education of all involved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push employees to further education and training through compensation and perks. Perhaps offering some of the newer office perks to employees- rec rooms, on site training, nutrition classes, etc.

    Pros

    Good company with global operations and dedicated staff. The company is on a very stong footing. Employees are given the opportunity to contribute in meaningful ways from day one. The culture is very traditional in some ways, while very entrepreneurial and collaborative in others. Great effort being put toward improving systems and processes as well as growing the business.

    Cons

    Very traditional feel with a definite age gap. Improvements in systems and processes need to be continued. Having a more robust professional development and team-building program would be helpful.

    Pros

    The people are probably the best asset for this company. Everyone is very pleasant, easy to work with and most feel empowered to make positive changes in their environment. The company seems to allow employees room for growth into higher or lateral positions that suit their skills. The growth plan for the company is a little aggressive which will ensure the company thrives well into the future.

    Cons

    The growth of the company is a little aggressive which will also put more burden on an already lean employee base. Pretty traditional company which may not attract younger professionals that expect a more modern approach to the work/life balance. Tends to pay less than average in a high cost of living area.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate each functional area of the company in order to balance the salary and work.

    Pros

    Professionally run global company where decision making is pushed into the business not held at the board room level. Accountability is held at the employees level which I love. Due to the lean nature of the company, I can see the impact of my efforts. Work environment is great. Many employees with long tenures leads to an environment of teaching/mentoring for new employees.

    Cons

    Company currently has a growth agenda which can lead to some challenges – defining new roles & responsibilities, short term work/home balance issue. Although I generally agree with the lean mindset of SI Group, some areas are understaffed. At times, decision making can be a bit slow.

    Advice to Management

    Rigidity of work hours needs to change. Flexibility in work hours and location – such as home offices – would attract a younger workforce and bring new energy and ideas to the company.
