    Pros

    great team, environment, hours. if possible, they give you what you need to grow/learn, and make something awesome!

    Cons

    sometimes stressful, but that's normal for anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    company is so small, it's not always easy to come forward with questions/concerns.

    Great Culture Because of C-Suite Leadership

    I worked at Systems Alliance full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome culture, collaborative, I had 2 of the best bosses I've ever had in my staffing career. Employees are very passionate and love what they do which sets the tone for company culture. Not clock watchers, not micro managers and certainly want you to succeed. Overall, it's a wonderful company to work at and if you're one of the lucky few who get selected to work there, you won't be sorry.

    Cons

    If you're a recruiter: Web technologies/Software firm with small staffing business. BDM's mostly sell the Web technologies/Software/IT Infrastructure Projects, but staffing comes 3rd. They need a dedicated BDM who knows the staffing industry and has sold staffing services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They do a wonderful job of managing they're employees.

    Pros

    Systems Alliance offers employees an entrepreneurial environment where if they apply themselves, they will find opportunities for career growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Though the company's management encourages a harmonious work-life balance, the company's work culture does not.

    Great company to work for

    Pros

    The CEO is brilliant and works harder than anyone in the office. He also makes time for all employees to discuss performance, provide feedback, and also will provide assistance in various work tasks.

    People in the office generally have a good sense of humor and are pretty laid back.

    Cons

    The PS team does not always manage projects effectively, and marketing activities are generally random and ineffective. Some meetings are time wasters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Several areas of the business are understaffed: the PS team needs to grow, and there needs to be a VP of sales to free up the CEO for more management and project delivery opportunities.

    Low Stress, Interesting Work, but in the Boondocks

    I have been working at Systems Alliance

    Pros

    you get a lot of autonomy to execute your work, which is a mixed blessing perhaps because you also don't get a lot of attention either if you are unsure how to approach what you are doing so you really need to scream for help in that case; opportunity to switch work to another business area (e.g. Professional Services to Software Products); relatively low stress environment

    Cons

    location, location, location; processes taken for granted in larger organizations, particularly timely reviews and feedback, are a struggle; projects are too small so projects managers end up managing lots (5-10), rather than one to three large projects; lack of integration and focus between business areas where one eats into the other's revenue rather than providing opportunities for synergy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate more information to people outside of management; be proactive about raises

    Don't work there

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Systems Alliance

    Pros

    I disliked it, but that doesn't mean everybody would. Pros are that it's a small company and there's room for growth and promotion if you fit in there.

    Cons

    I saw a lot of people get fired there in a relatively short amount of time. After leaving there, I had several people voluntarily tell me terrible things about the company. A very penny wise and pound foolish company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't nickel and dime employees or business partners.
