    Pros

    SYKES is very involved in the community. They support many events in most of the communities they do business in. They treat employees well.

    Cons

    I've heard other employees complain about not getting raises in the past but that changed this year.

    Advice to Management

    It appears that the company is working hard to improve employee moral. Keep it up. It doesn't go unnoticed.


  2. I feel very satisfied, rewarded, and even further educated due to my time spent working at Sykes.

    Pros

    The co-workers were always fun and helpful and it is always nice to have a computer always at/on hand when answering a call, helpful, in depth, and appropriate training, as well as a great database of information to draw from when on a call regarding nearly any problem a caller may have.

    Cons

    Poor hours, few directing supervisors, boring and empty working environment, which can cause a problem if you cannot find the information you are looking for relative to the caller's problem directly in the Sykes database and would like to speak to someone directly about it, (as getting support yourself by phone from a supervisor on one line while giving it to a caller on another line can get confusing really quick.)

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep employees busy, give things to do on long waits (2 hours+) between calls, & find more efficient/less tedious ways to log them.


  3. Best job I can ever obtain to establish a relationship developing a plan of action

    Gaining commitment with the customer leading to a suspension of my own values to isolate critical issues and represent business

    Advice to Management

    Give certificates or awards to the best employers

    Pros

    You get to work from home. The insurance is decent, and the pay is good if you consider not having to commute. Advancement opportunities are based on your skill levels with the program.

    Cons

    Not much of a social atmosphere, as everyone you work with is over a computer. If you are on the phones, your background noise has to be at 0%. This can be difficult to maintain in a house with children and/or pets.

    Advice to Management

    A great company to get into a management position.

    Fairly easy work. Nice working conditions. Building is in good shape as is the call floor. Other employees and managers are very nice and easy to work with.

    Pay rate is low for the work we do.

    Pay rate is way below other companies in the area.

    Pros

    Positive environment! Continued mentoring and support throughout my career with Sykes. I really enjoyed my colleagues while working with Sykes. Sykes is a very large BPO...but it never felt too large, if you know what I mean. Chuck Sykes instills the sense of camaraderie...even though Sykes employees are 60K+ strong!

    Cons

    Don't really have any to share.

    Pros

    Great Management Team, and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Inconsistent pay compensation. Due to "system gliche" you are not able to receive your max incentive bonus, even if you earned it.

    Advice to Management

    Not just listen to employees about Payroll issues, but act upon them more efficiently.


  11. Love working at Sykes home, I just started working here a few months ago and I just love being able to work from home.
