I worked at SYKES full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I was promoted to manager at Sykes within three months, over dozens of more senior people. They recognize talent.

Cons

Since the positions are contract, there is much uncertainty..

Advice to Management

Need to increase job security for star employees, possibly offering relocation.

    I have been working at SYKES part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    its at home
    no commute
    friendly coworkers that help you along the way

    Cons

    the managment is kind of rude but some are nice depends on who you get really.
    short breaks and preemployment was the biggest hassle
    odd working hours

    Advice to Management

    be more open to advice about the company and have everyone on the same page. get etter benefits for those that work at home rather than in the call center and have better pay because we do alot for 8-9dollars an hour i think we actually deserve aroug 10.50 at least and good insurance

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

    Pros

    This was a work from home position, which I enjoyed,

    Cons

    Your evaluated mostly on your ability to mostly turnaround Customers that were already dis-satisfied with the company and leave them with feeling completely satisfied or your performance was scored as less than satisfactory. Only 9-10 on surveys were satisfactory. This is not easy when customers are being incorrectly billed and receiving poor service
