    Pros

    Willing to invest time in training to better improve employees skills. Provide you with the tools to act autonomous. You get to see and interact with everybody from interns to the CEO on a daily basis. Great company that is growing and you have the opportunity to grow with it.

    Cons

    Some of the software is finicky and seems to be outdated. Some of the employees are grouped with people that are not in their individual department.

    Big enough to have great experiences. Small enough to have an impact with growth opportunities. Family type atmosphere provides a friendly environment.

    Learning how to be in a growth mode. Sometimes still slow to respond to a changing environment. Overall employee age is older and in transition now.

    Keep focused.

    Pros

    Great company to work at. One of the best things about this company is its friendly staff that have very sophisticated and intelligent mind sets. You'll learn as you grow and there is always room for new ideas and improvement. Your input is always taken into consideration and SI Group will always award you for your suggestions and ideas that are put into place, big or small.

    Cons

    Growing at a slow pace in the IT department and a little unorganized but SI Group is definitely making a noticeable effort to work on this day by day.

    Keep up the good work.
