    I worked at SDI Systems (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary. Good Benefits. Nice people

    Cons

    Disconnect with all departments and employees. Accounting department understaffed for company size and needs better qualified and experienced people. Painful to see so many errors and lost money due to a variety of mistakes in accounting, production and contract fulfillment. Shipping department and Inventory is out of control ! (No control!)

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified and experienced accounting clerks and accountants. Inventory has to be correct! Shipping has to be connected to the accounting department every single day, every single shipment, all aspects including the product shipped, quantity, reason, carrier, cross reference PO and or Job #, Cost to ship!!!! Name of person requesting shipment. Contracts must be understood by all and billed to customer accordingly and correctly. Travel, Freight Costs, Permits and Engineering Fees for drawings and Stamps, Foreign Canadian Tax are billable but not conveniently given to accounts receivable billing department.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a new trade with lots of travel. Must be motivated to learn as much as possible to gain experience in a company that is expanding rapidly.

    Cons

    Nobody will give you anything unless you ask. The only real downside is living in hotels. Salary based position means you will be working 60+ hours a week .

    Advice to Management

    Training should be handled by qualified personnel without making you feel inferior although my experience is in a related field and I have a bachelors degree, there will be times you feel you aren't given enough credit to perform the tasks that you feel confident you are ready to tackle.It is almost feel like you should keep your head down and play dumb til you are called upon.

    Pros

    Resonable salary, benefits, and schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    SDI expects employess to upfront travel expenses for later reimbursement, not just hotel and rental car expenses but airline travel as well. There is no per diem option and original receipts must be snail mailed to AP before reimbursement. I cannot adequately describe the hassle involved if AP 'misplaces' any of these original receipts.

    Corporate communication is non-existent and/or (seemingly) purposefully misleading.

    Advice to Management

    You will never attract and retain world class employees until you begin treating them as world class employees.
