    Pros

    Great office culture, they care about their employees and it shows
    CEO is positive to a fault and a great motivator, exactly the kind of person I want to work for
    Opportunities for growth if you work hard and drive results
    Lots of new clients in 2014 with good sales outlook
    Great colleagues who motivate you to push yourself outside of your comfort zone to grow professionally
    Excellent work-life balance, again, you feel appreciated
    Management team has clear vision and plan for growth moving forward

    Cons

    Smaller company size means less resources to invest in growth at times

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive the positive culture and reward hard-working employees, and bring in new talent and technology to help us grow even more!

    Pros

    Small company so you get to know everyone. Everyone gets the same number of PTO days. Relaxed and professional environment..

    Cons

    Management has no idea what their product is or how to charge for it. Small number of clients with most of the revenue tied up in 1-3 clients. Have not been able to make the leap to the digital age.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly define the product that you are selling and staff accordingly.

    Pros

    Some nice people, some smart people, fairly flexible work environment.

    Cons

    There's No clear cut direction or vision from upper management. Even when some upper management was let go a couple years back, things still didn't improve, so the dysfunction must have been coming from someplace else. Seemed like priorities and approaches changed monthly. Also, they put all their eggs in one basket - losing their main client may mean the end of the road for the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    Cut your losses and move on....

    Pros

    Good physical office environment with typical perks, flexability with work schedules, decent benefits including paid time off and health care options.

    Cons

    Poor internal dynamics and team synergy. No focus on sustainability, business roadmap or infrastructure. Lacking quality leadership in several departments which proves very detrimental.

    Advice to Management

    Make sound business decisions, hire and retain a better management structure.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good benefit.

    Cons

    The company is not organized. They just layoff off employees when they lost clients. The turnover rate is very high.

    Advice to Management

    They don't know what they are doing.

    Pros

    There used to be a great group of smart people which made it a collaborative and interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Most of the smart people with integrity have left because of very poor leadership and lack of a vision for the company. Others were let go because they were not "followers" of the leadership team's poor decisions. The current CEO is in WAY over his head. He has never run a company before (except for his own 3 person company for a short time). If you agree with everything he says and are willing to just smile and nod...you can be in favor and rewarded..but you should watch your back because it prob won't last. A LOT of politics going on for a small organization.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the Board is "fire sale"! Or - if that's not an option - bring in an entirely new management team - one that is QUALIFIED and has experience in SIGMA's business.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with positive cultural changes. They care about the employees and are making changes to make it a more open environment.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement and are still operating on technology from the 90's. They need a complete overhaul to compete in the current marketplace

    Advice to Management

    Focus on where the company is going instead of playing catch up.
