    I worked at Sybase full-time

    Pros

    Great people and lots of opportunity for growth. The technology is interesting, and the company provides tons of opportunity to participate in technology training.

    Cons

    Sales compensation is changed yearly, and the company is run by people focused on accuracy and predictability of revenue rather than aggressively pursuing sales. Because the Sybase technology isn't typically considered a growth technology at many clients, it's often difficult to meet with top level management at clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job. Keep it up!

    I worked at Sybase full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If life-work balance and ephemera surrounding your work are more important to you than achieving good results, this place is for you. (I got out before my resume was destroyed.)

    Cons

    Almost all the serious talent moved on years ago, leaving a small network of competent individuals struggling against a sea of yes-men in a completely dysfunctional organization. Senior management demands to be told what they want to hear, and the rest of the org battles the short-run exigencies this creates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need -- SAP will be replacing you.

    Pros

    None nothing positive with this office. Worst career choice all time

    Cons

    Terrible management led by Terry Gellerman. Phony job posting... Sybase company itself is fine but the chicago office is led by poor management, not following company's policy, no training and no career support. There are no diversity in the office and the office is poorly equipped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the people in the chicago office

    I worked at Sybase full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. If you enjoy afternoon naps, come late, leave early..ease going place with no work, no delivery...and everything done in China...then, Sybase is the right place for you

    Cons

    Lousy Management. Their interest is in saving their jobs outsourcing it all to Chinese, so management can get nice big paychecks. Lousy laptops or desktops, probably a decade old will be given to you to work on..No interest in employee training, progress or retaining skilled people. This is dead place...RIP...Dont make the mistake of being excited to join Sybase...The money from SAP keeps them going

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Lousy Management who have been holding their jobs for over a decade and hire some hardcore skilled developers

    I worked at Sybase

    Pros

    Great company that cares about its employees. Perks and benefits are plentiful and opportunities to move up the ladder present themselves often.

    Cons

    Many Long hours are required in order to work your way into that next career. If you are dedicated to the company and do not have much life outside, you will do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less hours!
