    Pros

    - Very positive environment - Flexible with their employees - For book lovers (like me) it's a very rewarding career/industry - Management listens to their reports - Genuine opportunities for upward mobility - Work-life balance is always a focus, holidays off, bagel Fridays, free fountain drinks

    Cons

    There have been some big process changes implemented, which not everyone has embraced. Changes come some bumps and bruises, however, the changes are already showing their true value.

    Advice to Management

    Continue seeing the bigger picture while simultaneously listening to those people in the trenches.

    Pros

    fantastic work environment, work life balance, management, and co-workers.

    Cons

    Nothing noteworthy, but since this thing makes me input info, my salary is on the low end, to be expected when I start a completely new career field and I'm sure this will take care of itself as I continue. Ok glassdoor, can I submit now?...

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, this is a great company to work for!

    Pros

    Probably the best feature about SirsiDynix is the atmosphere. The people are so friendly, the bosses are big into employee appreciation, and there are always opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    The Health Insurance is kind of pricy. High premiums with high deductibles I would have to say was my only major complaint.

    Pros

    A great work/life balance, opportunities for growth for those new to software/business, great culture.

    Cons

    Seems like high turnover at times, would love to see some more career options for folks wanting to get into mid-level management, better communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep track of your strong employees and connected with them so they feel they are moving towards their careers goals.

    Pros

    Great culture, flexibility, work/life balance, and industry. Working in the library industry finding ways to bridge the gap between technology and printed materials is exciting.

    Cons

    Turnover of employees seems to be on the rise. Management needs to find out why quality employees are leaving and how to keep them.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in making sure that employees are happy- if they aren't find ways to compromise with them in order to keep them. Having veteran employees, especially in development, will be crucial to the continued success of SirsiDynix.

    Pros

    Lots of experience to be had. There is a great break room, club blue, with a pool table and soda fountain. The people are really fun to work with, it is a younger group with many engineers fresh out of school or still finishing up.

    Cons

    They take the philosophy of a self organizing team to it logical absurdity. The engineers are the testers, scrum masters, doc writers, product owners, coders, and managers even though there are actual people in all those roles.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of time engineering support staff and management spends in meetings so they can focus on their main job responsibilities.

    Pros

    Great Culture, great coworkers, flexible managent, nice facilities, growing company, for the most part we're taken care.of

    Cons

    Low salary, management and ownership changes have made things different. Company parties aren't as great as they used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep motivating employees through other means, things have changed in some departments and it's harder to have a good time at work.

    Pros

    There's a lot of great people working at SirsiDynix. Everyone worked hard together to make great products. I was given the opportunity to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    I can't think of many cons. The open workspace sometimes causes distractions like people walking by, nearby conversations. That being said, it does promote a collaborative environment within a team.

    Pros

    Free coffee and bagles.

    Cons

    Managers did not mind employees working until 9 or 10 pm to complete task that was given last minute. Those who worked on vacation and volunteered to work late nights were praised. Even though the quality of work was not high. SirsiDynix offers salaries that are below market value so coworkers weren't the best or the brightest to work with. Long meetings that did not accomplish anything. It seemed like over 50% of the work week was spent in meetings rather than coding. It was irritating working here and there was much better opportunities elsewhere.
