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

    Pros

    Flexibility 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!

    Cons

    Depending 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Only 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat the support staff like you treat the sales people and executives by offering bonuses for performance.

    Frustrating convoluted processes and low moral of home office.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very few paid holidays, outdated college reimbursement amounts, the withdrawal of remote/ telecommuting.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 ManagementAdvice

    Reward 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.

    Pros

    Employees are valued; All workers seem happy in their jobs; My team is awesome; Everyone works extra hard because they want to do their jobs well.

    None. All the good things FAR outweigh anything I had to give up when I left my last job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ROCK! I love this company!
