Great Place to work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility if you have personal things you need to take care of (i.e. sick child, drs. appointments) they work with you. They reward us with quarterly awards and give us the opportunity to attend local sporting events. Overall I would say I'm blessed to have been given a chance to work for such a good company!

ConsDepending on who your manager is determines how you work. Each manager is different and have different expectations. Wish they were all on the same page. Some micromanage while others leave you alone unless there is an issue or if someone is unsatisfied with your work.

Frustrating convoluted processes and low moral of home office.

Operations (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFair home - life balance considering it is a sales based company. Fair benefits. Company tries to increase moral by doing small office based events.

ConsVery few paid holidays, outdated college reimbursement amounts, the withdrawal of remote/ telecommuting. Not much upward mobility unless you have an inside relationship with an executive.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward your producers of the company. The same 3 figure "bonus" across the board for the last 5 years and more is almost an insult to the personnel who give it their all while slackers receive the same amount end of year. Realize that withdrawal of the option to telecommute is worth a lot more financially to the non exempt than the executives can even comprehend.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Executive greed!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAlways hiring young professionals recently out of undergrad in order to teach them how to perform.

ConsOnly promote in-house if you are singled out as a 'favorite' by the powers that be. If you do not schmooze those in power or become part of the 'in crowd' then it will not matter how much knowledge and passion you have to offer, all efforts will go unnoticed.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the support staff like you treat the sales people and executives by offering bonuses for performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I'm torn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time

ProsReally good work/life balance. Senior management are all great. Company really tries to do nice little personal touches for their employees.

ConsWorking for a sales company in the back office has it's challenges. The emphasis is placed on sales and services so much that it feels that the back office often goes unnoticed or at the least is under appreciated (carries over into compensation). Your experience at Sirius all depends on your manager. Much of the work at Sirius is very manual and tedious because of the outdated accounting/reports software, but also because everything requires approval. A lot of projects dead end for lack of direction/follow up. In all honesty though, as long as you work for a reasonable/rational manager everything is peachy. It's a decent place to get some experience. Upward movement outlook is poor though.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is really nice, patient, and reasonable. You're all doing great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
