Pros

If you're talented and can communicate well, it won't take too long before you're offered good opportunities to grow both your talent and responsibility. Strategic Information Technology is a family-oriented company that reveals its commitment to family in a number of ways including: flexible working hours (if required), children's holiday party, employee holiday dance and party, and more. There is also a weekly company meeting that all employees are encouraged to attend and encourage to speak up if there are any questions.

Cons

SIT has lower compensation than the industry average but is far more family oriented than most software companies.

Advice to Management

Keep your eye out for the talented quiet ones who, week by week, produce excellent results but may not be great at communicating this fact.

    I have been working at Strategic Information Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I understand that most people use this stage to complain and it is often those that feel hard done by that lash out. It is sad to read because this company has so much potential. There are so many smart people that work so hard to make positive contributions. They are in a unique position where they are both software and services and they can also play in the FinTech space. They have so many verticals they can compete it.
    Because it is a smaller company, as in individual you are heard if you speak up but it appears people spend more time complaining about problems and not coming to the table with solutions.
    The company has free parking, free coffee, they have employee appreciation events, they have good benefits (everyone wants more of course), and they promote work/life balance.

    Cons

    The office space does need to be revamped, it is outdated. The biggest pitfall I see this company facing is that one floor is all offices and this keeps people from working closely together.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your people accountable. There is a previous post that talks about "SIT" being an appropriate acronym. This speaks volumes.. if people were just sitting around no wonder the company had to cut jobs... Managers need to pay closer attention to those not adding value!

    I have been working at Strategic Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are great. Location is good.

    Cons

    The company is spiraling out of control. Employees feel way too entitled and lash out constantly. No point in speaking up with concerns because no one listens nor cares.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring family members and focus on the good employees you have now.
