    I have been working at Sentry Data Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a very collaborative environment. Everyone works well together within teams. Many people work remotely. The communication within teams is great. We keep in touch through email, chat and on the phone. People on the team live in different parts of the country. This is a great example of a success story for having teams work remotely from home.

    Cons

    Sometimes company communication is not the best. There should be a single source that the information about the company culture, organization and news should flow when it is internal only communication. In some cases information is given to us and sometimes we either find out later or through the grapevine.

    Pros

    Allowed to self-pace and manage our responsibilities. Result is better productivity and feeling of being trusted to do our jobs.

    Cons

    Very Big Data management. Sometimes overwhelms resources and give clients perception of un-responsiveness. Knee jerk response is to hire even more staff, whereas we probably need more cohesive systems to manage workload.

    Advice to Management

    Move to better managed cloud spaces like Azure and adopt more mainstream back-end tools. We have Microsoft Office and Salesforce on the front end; complete the picture with less opensource and more mainstream tools/applications on the back end, while moving our infrastructure to a more established cloud managed company.

    I worked at Sentry Data Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and competitive pay. Compensated for travel expenses in a timely manner.

    Cons

    Training and refresher for new employees isn't quite well put together. Directors voice how important it is that employees are at the top of their game, but retract additional training when push comes to shove.

    Advice to Management

    A) Directors should refrain from saying,"...that's why I get paid the big bucks". B) It is not professional to want an upcoming team to be up to par ASAP just because the director is eager to go on vacation. C) Directors must be held accountable for having a habit of CONTINUALLY being late to calls / meetings.

    Pros

    Management is fair and responsible. They stand up for the people lower down on the ladder. Company is growing quickly and has a long-term outlook on how things will work. People are treated with respect and talent is recognized. I have to wonder if some of these other reviews are people who couldn't do their job. Project managers are trained to treat technical folks with respect the deserve and don't breathe down your neck about deadlines as long as you work hard.

    Cons

    Like most places, getting started is kind of slow. Onboarding process is a lot of learn-by-shadowing, but that is changing quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Sentry Data Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High salaries, some nice people. The location in sunny south Florida is quite fantastic. That's really about it for the PROs.

    Cons

    Unorganized, zero training, poor communication! They throw you to the wolves with little to no training and get frustrated when you fail. That is unless you're a member of the "Old Boys Club". Senior management does some very shady, underhanded things....oh boy, if the Feds ever thoroughly investigated them.....

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire inexperienced people and expect them to catch on with no training.
