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

Pros

It's a job. At least they hire after an interview and want to make every attempt to retain you.

Cons

Forget about a promotion unless you kiss some serious management butt. I considered myself to be qualified to do many jobs with Sykes, but found myself being passed up on a consistent basis. Certain employees get away with more based on who they know as well. It's a 'good ol' pal' network and if you're not in said network, then you're days are numbered. Did I mention the salary is a joke?

Advice to Management

Seek employment elsewhere and hopefully someone with sense can help manage the solid workers they have employed. Or pay lower level employees more.
