    Very interesting work!

    Engagement Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGrowing company, global clients, high impact work, amazing people and great leadership. Ecommerce is changing the world and SysIQ is working with global brands on revolutionizing the way they do business. Very exciting space and projects.

    ConsIf you are looking for an easy job this company is not for you. Long hours, international travel. Very demanding clients and this can sometimes be very stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to focus on existing clients and your team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Flexible, Autonomous, Professional and Positive

    Engagement Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsIt's an entrepreneurial environment with a positive attitude, a hard-working team, and respect for the individual, as well as the team.

    ConsWith the rapid growth of the company over the past year, not all of the internal structure or communications channels have kept up. There can be a few more surprises than are always necessary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's all about balance: growth, process and scalability balanced against an entrepreneurial spirit, creative problem solving and the role of individuals. It's not an impossible balance, but if it were easy everyone would do it.

    A company that once had an opportunity to be great

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Kiev (Ukraine)

    ProsInteresting and growing field of practice. Great work-life balance! No one really is accountable for results here any longer, so people enjoy lots of free time to study or run their side projects, which most do, including the co-owners. Salary and benefits are great, and once you become a favorite of CEO or one of his close allies (read: do not contradict his ego), you will be taken care of.

    ConsTotal lack of trust at the senior management level and dishonest treatment of employees. Lack of vision at the founders' level, lack of direction and constant shifts in strategy resulting in project after project failing. Basically, the company survives on selling hot air "we can do everything" deals and moves on for yet another victim when a previous one is sucked dry. Three co-founders are not in alignment, each one has his own agenda and priorities, often contradicting each other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the drawing board, free SysIQ from unneeded burden, both in terms of people as well as an "ego"-type internal projects, begin to TRUST your key people, and concentrate on the quality of what you do TODAY. Do not sell "intent", but sell what you are capable of making. But then you heard all of it, most recently from the French HQ of one of your customers - but instead of soaking this in and changing your ways, you once again threw people at yet another fire-fight.

    Fast-growing, healthy, but too management-oriented.

    (Current Employee) Kiev (Ukraine)

    ProsA great internal culture.
    A lot of growth issues, which can give an extremely useful experience.

    ConsThe company has obvious preference to sales / management departments - forget about substantial personal growth in engineering.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart investing in engineering. If not, then there always be problems with quality and lack of high-qualified professionals.
    All other is very nice :)
