    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with from the executives down through the rank and file. Everyone is committed to the common goal of providing the best library user experience and this focus shows.

    Cons

    Development is in the process of creating a next generation Integrated Library System. This process takes time but it will greatly benefit our users and the company in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job. Keep your focus on the library user and we will continue to see great success.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Fantastic work environment, great breakrooms, relaxation rooms, gym in building, fun events and parties.
    - Excellent advancement opportunities
    - Great benefits, 401k w/matching, HSA Matching, Adoption Assistance, etc.
    - Family friendly
    - Willing to take chances on good candidates
    - Wonderful Managers, very professional **see Cons

    I seriously love working here, the only reason I put any cons is for full disclosure.

    Cons

    - Health Insurance is High Deductible/HSA
    - Actual pay is not as high as other companies, however the fringe benefits make this a bit more of a meh than a con
    - Performance Reviews are arbitrary and inconsistent
    - Lack of professional development for employees, advanced training and skills improvement

    **Some managers are clueless and lack leadership skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As often as we are asked to review our peers and we are reviewed. It would be nice if there were some bottom up reviews of supervisors, managers and department heads.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There have been many family focused activities throughout the year. From movies to trick or treating, to a wonderful Christmas Party with Santa just for the kids, all have been a hit. SirsiDynix realizes that it is more than just making the work life of the employee enjoyable, but making sure the whole family is happy. My kids think I work in the coolest place and I would agree.

    Cons

    Not having Diet Mountain Dew onsite. Every company I have worked for has problems, but SirsiDynix strives to constantly improve.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Every manager I've worked with has been very interested in helping me succeed. They care about their people. It's a fun place to work with a great corporate culture. I really enjoy the good work/life balance. The people I work with are good at what they do and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Salaries start kind of low. I wish we got more paid holidays (not all the federal holidays are included in our holiday schedule, but we do get "flex days" we can use whenever we like).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to hire more experienced developers.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The leadership at SirsiDynix takes the time to know the employees. Not just HR, but the CFO and other company leaders walk around and check in. They take the time to learn about our families and career goals. Then, they work to help make those goals a reality.

    Cons

    As with all large companies communication between teams could be better.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salaries are very competitive. Main office is a new building and is a very clean, comfortable place to work. Environment is upbeat, but not stressful. Job is motivating, but not overwhelming. Always learning and improving on the job. Very accommodating for family time. Break room, food, sodas, etc are great. I rarely leave for lunch. I love the food that is brought in.

    Cons

    Inter-departmental fueds are annoying, specifically between development/project management and other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help certain departments to work better with other departments. I think if each department understood better what the other departments do, they would have more respect and tolerance for them.

    Pros

    I really feel part of a great team. There is plenty of support between colleagues and staff are encouraged to share ideas. Benefits are really good, and there are rewards for special effort. Lots of regular training as well. Great vibes around the place. There are always opportunities for promotion as openness is welcomed.

    Cons

    There are too many internal processes.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    SirsiDynix is very selective in who they hire. Once you make it through the screening process and come on board, you realize that you are part of an elite group that is great to work with. SirsiDynix values their employees and goes to great lengths to create a positive work environment that is pleasant, enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. I've had other job opportunities come up while working at SirsiDynix, but they don't compare to what I have here. When I get the itch to move on, I just move to a different position at SirsiDynix.

    Cons

    I started with SirsiDynix when they were located in Provo. The recent move to Lehi means more travel each day. I like the building we are in. I just don't like the 20 minute drive twice a day.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, great office environment, good location--convenient, new, modern office space, well-managed, good benefits package, fun fringe benefits.

    Cons

    Low growth industry, some customers are wary of SIrsiDynix's past behaviors. They are working to improve that but still have work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to get to industry standards.

    I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I like the work environment - the offices and culture have the feel of a start up but the process and maturity of a 40 year company. I like the work we are doing ow but also the vision for the future and really impacting our industry. Over the past 2 years, the company has done a much better job of communicating what is important and how we are doing.

    Cons

    The library industry hat we serve can be a bit slow to change and embrace new products and ideas. We also have a lot of projects going on the help our customers today and also in the future and it can be very hard to prioritize what is most important to work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep doing what you are doing - especially the communication and culture.
