Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at SYKES full-time for more than a year

Pros

Culture has taken a huge turn around with the new site director. Leaders are actually invested in their people. Lots of fun activities now.

Cons

its a call center... so attendance is required. Kind of the name of the game for a call center job.

Advice to Management

Keep pushing things the right direction

Current Employee - Senior Technical Program Manager

I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Amazon is a fast-paced environment where all partners are provided the ability to suggest and implement changes to improve services provided to customers everyday. Decisions are made quickly based on... what is best for the customer and not just on what a specific leader recommends. You also have the opportunity to truly guide your own career path, pursuing new areas that you find most challenging. Given the incredible projections for growth, there is also considerable job security for the foreseeable future.

Cons

The nature of the constant change does create considerable ambiguity in both individual role structure and responsibilities. You need to be comfortable with constant change and able to adapt quickly.

Advice to Management

Provide partners with more direct support and guidance, instead of always pushing individuals towards self driven resources for career development.
