I have been working at SLI Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- New Zealand founders & management creates a company culture not found in Silicon Valley or the states and thus provides a good work life balance
- Clients love us - as they come first!
- Unique ever-changing technology, high client touch approach

Cons

- Management hasn't been able to figure out how to propel the company to greatness
- Company structure has become siloed with too many VP's
- Communication is poor given the New Zealand/US time zones and email is the dominant communication vehicle
- Employees are typically underpaid

Advice to Management

- Open up to employee feedback at lower levels and don't let one man dictate the direction of the business at the expense of the company and good people
- Try to foster more inter-departmental conversation

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at SLI Systems full-time

    Pros

    Fun open experienced team that works together, great clients, worldwide offices to visit.

    Cons

    The pay and minimal growth opportunities unless you switch fields which is not encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Firstly management need to work on pushing staff to be the best they can. There is a lot of work on product development which keeps the company at it's best, but without knowledgeable staff there would be no company at all. Send us away for conferences, get us out there more for networking, learning and talking to our potential clients at more events.

    And secondly, financially invest in your staff - they're running away for better pay.

    I worked at SLI Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product, bright hungry people. Every person in the company is a good person, enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Very self start environment. Don't expect much support or guidance, whilst this can be plus it hurts employee growth

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to your teams, have meaningful 121's, understand what your team members need to grow and perform better - then deliver. Structured training and development plans would assist too.
