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

    Pros

    I've been here a couple of years and feel this is a great company to work for whether your in the middle of your career or just starting out. The people are fantastic to work with and very helpful.

    Cons

    Small company with limited sites but growing in the right direction. Little choices for movement but never the less a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep SI Group a family oriented company with great work family balance. Dont' get it into the niche that a lot of bigger companies get into that make working for them unbearable and causes a lot of turnover and experience leaving the company.
