    Pros

    My flexible work schedule allows me to get to doctors appointments. For someone like me that has some health issues and has to set up many appointments with different doctors/specialists the flexible work schedule is a relief.
    SID offers a wide range of benefits for a company of its size.
    Having 10 paid Holidays per year is a definite plus!!
    Management recognizes that career advancement is important to every employee and therefore provides training to assist with employee's career goals.

    Cons

    It would be great to be paid weekly instead of semi-monthly.

    Pros

    The lengthy one pretty much explain it all.

    Cons

    I am one of the lucky folks that has a spouse working for a company that pay a good portion of the health benefits. My coworker on the other hand doesn't and going through some finance issue with the rates. My coworker explained that they are offering on cheaper insurance on ehealthinsurance site compared to what he/she is paying for insurance with SID. Go figure.

    Current family plan he/she he paying was 700 for family. Rates has gone up to 800 starting this September. He also showed me plans from the ehealthinsurance site and I was astonish on how much he could save from purchasing health insurance on his own. To bad he was late on coming to buy insurance outside since they only gave a 2 weeks notice on Open Enrollment while at that the pricing 1 week later.

    This leads me to believe that the company is really not covering anything for their employees and they are just using this as a vehicle to entice other people to work for them.

    Yes I understand that there is deductible with the lower rate at ehealthinsurance for 500 or so but for the same price of 800, he/she is actually getting the same from outside or even better plan PPO.

    Make sure you have some back up plan for insurance, this company is lacking for sure.

    While SID cannot address a particular employee's health insurance concerns in this response, SID recognizes that each individual and family has different needs. SID has worked diligently and ... More

    Pros

    Senior Management knows every employee by name, both at HQ and client sites
    Robust benifit plan, very good HR staff
    Pay is appropriate to the position held, vacation/sick days/ holidays are standard.
    Leadership has a good plan for the future of the company and values the employees inputs. Communication is effective and the CEO has an open door policy. If you have an issue, he will actually talk with you and try to resolve it.

    Cons

    HQ in Rockville and most contracts in DC, which can cause some people to feel disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Continue to share with the rest of the company the plans for the future and let the staff know how much they are valued.
