Pros

Very little supervision. Lots of freedom if you were friends with the right people.

Cons

Lack of comprehensive training and understanding of the industry by those doing the training. There are the "haves" and the "Have not"s. The "haves" can do no wrong, but don't get caught doing what a "have" does if you are a "have not".

Advice to Management

If you give a directive to go from here to there, and the path is blocked by incompetent team members, don't be surprised when an alternate path is taken to make your goal. The "SBI" is a manifesto to hang those declared "witches" by the mediocre, when in fact the "witches" are magicians that have been pulling rabbits out of their hats for a career to make your goals obtainable.

    Pros

    You will work in a friendly environment with knowledgeable people to learn from. It is a good industry to work for as you can take this experience and apply it to many other industries.

    Cons

    They don't really groom and invest on employee training as much as some other companies. This is one of the reason they are not really the top company in their relative field.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare leaders within your employees. Groom the young guys to ensure they stay with the company for long as the knowledge they gain about the product and company would be lost if they are not kept around for long.

    Pros

    Experience on a resume.
    The longer you keep believing the fluff they feed you the longer you will stay.

    Cons

    Well underpaid.
    Nepotism & politics.
    Poor management.
    Greedy.
    Uncaring for their employees.
    If you feed in to the fluff this company tells you it will ruin your life in the long run & if u have a family theirs too. If you are the type of person that does not expect much then this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest & follow through with promises. Take better care of your employees & give them a REAL paycheck.
