    I worked at Sentry Data Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was with the company in mid to senior level positions for over 6 years in operations and customer support areas. The environment was always challenging and fast-paced but was not unexpected as it was a start-up /early stage company. Opportunities for professional growth were available for smart, hardworking people. I was promoted 3 times over my 6+ year tenure. The company is also very diverse (women, minorities) and prides itself on hiring the best qualified candidates. Senior management were supportive, goal / deliverable driven but expected results without excuses. Overall a positive work environment.

    Cons

    A handful of new senior management folks that are supposed to be experienced and knowledgeable but were mostly imposters. Fortunately, the company caught on to these folks relatively quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to attract high quality employees and promote within.

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros unless you thrive in an environment of mistrust and dishonesty!

    Cons

    Ineffective leadership, person at the top doesn't prioritize objectives, constantly jumping from one fire to another only to find out the fire never even started to burn. Total mismanagement of resources and it comes at the top! Dysfunctional association of "leaders",in my opinion and I use the term leaders lightly. Questionable hiring practices, HR fails to post jobs so that special people can be brought in through the back door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    call it quits and go home, you can't play with the big guys

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Deerfield Beach, FL

    I worked at Sentry Data Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    when management was available, they were very appreciative of efforts, time, and contribution.

    Cons

    because this is a small company, it is hard to get time with the business SMEs and executive management was unwilling to hire required staff to allow projects to be successful. as a result project schedules slip. there is limited amount of bullying displayed by some of the senior management to staff, employees, contractors, etc. it appeared to be tolerated by the executive management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    executive management does not appear to hold senior management accountable for schedule and costs. implement an anti bullying campaign that includes consequences when reported.
    for key new projects, ensure that key staff are available to participate on projects or bring in additional staff to backfill/supplement gaps
