    Pros

    The facility is great: environmentally friendly, clean, lots of light, open floor plan, great furniture, PLUSH common area/game room, subsidized cafeteria, free soda, free coffee/espresso/cappuccino, relaxation room with massage chairs, lactation room, work out facility, walking distance to Front Runner. Many efforts have been made to create a positive culture and employees are definitely engaged. CFO encourages a “Work Hard, Play Hard” environment. Managers have made it a point to recognize hard work! Multiple activities are hosted for employee's and thier families on a regular basis. Company is flexible with works schedules, which is a plus if you need to work from home due to a sick family member or other such issues.

    Cons

    The Company has definitely gone through some growing pains in creating its Technology Centre. Implementation of a wellness program has been a difficult change for employees. While some additions have been made in recent months, there is a lack of non-fast food eating establishments. Although fairly short, the traffic on the main road to the freeway can back up and add 5-10 minutes to my commute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction of employee recognition. Remain open to receiving employee feedback. Also, continue to keep employee’s apprised of the Company’s goals and initiatives.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    It would be nice to hire more experienced developers.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Sirsidynix, since their move to the new office building in Lehi, has taken great strides towards making sure their employees are taken care of with both in-office perks, extraordinary benefits, and through supervisory/subordinate reaching out. For the first time in my career, it really feels like a company really cares about the employee rather than us just being another number on a spreadsheet. Internal staff are friendly, willing to help each other, and the office atmosphere is one of the best around. They have internal competitions like miniature golfing, video game, pool, and table tennis championships. Don't forget the golden golf putter! Sirsidynix is also invested in their products. They are making significant leaps ahead of the competitive technology within the market. They are employing lots of new development staff to work on new and innovating software that will impress the marketplace for years to come.

    Cons

    Sirsidynix is owned by a private equity firm which could mean higher turnover at times, and due to the nature of private equity, there is also a bit of uncertainty in which the ownership will evolve down the road. Sirsidynix is definitely not in automatic mode right now. There's a lot of new technology so the employees are working hard to keep up with supporting it. There often also can be times where internal communication could be lacking.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that inter-department communication regarding software and philosophy would greatly help the efficiency of supporting said software.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great people with a solid product vision. Bright outlook for new employees. Excellent upper management.

    Cons

    Too many bridges have been burned by mostly former executives. The company needs a solid finished product delivered soon to hush the naysayers. The competition is unfairly staffed with former employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the product vision going to reach the completion of the product. Get the software out to the market, so you won't have to worry about the competitors. Don't step over the rusty coins to pick up the shiny new penny.
