    I worked at Sigma Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management team is focused on building a world-class product company. Lot's of new customers and significant growth over the past 3 years. Tribold acquisition was a great addition, and has filled in the product portfolio nicely. Great opportunity for people to get International experience as customers are very global. Management open to new Innovation and challenges teams to grow in their roles. Company is focused on growing a strong business, with true sustainability.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a challenge at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate your vision and strategy.

    I worked at Sigma Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small tight knit group of people that go way back many, many years (before the launch of the company). Strong cable telecom only background - no mobile or wireless experience.

    Cons

    Do not pay commissions they agree to at the start. Long work days, Time away from home and Long sales cycle - closed deals are large but over a period of time not upfront. And the leaders try every trick in the book not to pay you. Several sales people in industry in the U.S. will not work for this company based on reputation alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Several changes in direction confuse the market - pick one and stick with it.

    I have been working at Sigma Systems

    Pros

    it is a relatively stable industry

    Cons

    As it is a relatively stable industry, there is no much room for development both in personal and industrywide, no excitement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explore more opportunity in other industries. Give the employee more room for development. Encourage for collaboration between different deparments and with other companis.

    I have been working at Sigma Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, dedicated and knowledgeable. Work/Life balance can only be maintained if you push back.

    Cons

    People seems to be lifers with no ambition. Not much press on managers/execs to care of employees. Career growth is stagnant, no senior staff leaves. No bonuses or incentives besides base pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take care of your best employees, there are zero incentives for high performers except to leave.
