    I worked at SED International (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great co-workers. Nice desk...

    Cons

    This company could have done better if they just kept their finances straight and knew how to actually run a business. There is nothing left of SED, it's a shame that 30 years of building history was destroyed in literally two years. They've been circling the drain for the better part of 3 years now and no one will pull the plug and put this place out of its misery. Please don't get a job here thinking you'll be there for more than 5 or 6 months. I wouldn't give the survive-ability of SED more than another quarter or two at the most.

    Advice to Management

    Ha, there's management!!?? Give it up, seriously...

    Pros

    Centrally located in the heart of Doral, a commercial area and one of the main hubs of international trade.

    Cons

    They are countless... violations of HR's starndard practices, INCONSISTENCY is their most consistent value, poor organizational culture, absence of strategic planning, poor management knowledge, low educational level of middle management, no focus on service improvement or customer satisfaction...

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the board of directors ,who have invested their money in SED. Hire educated people that display passion and a competitive spirit. Focus on employees and customers' satisfaction. Create a strong organizational culture where collaboration, respect and a strong sense of belonging are paramount of their daily activities.
