    I worked at SOSi

    Pros

    Mid-sized company that is family-owned so they have a vested interest in your success and they truly care about their employees. Very approachable at the top levels. Fewer approval layers so less red tape. Encouraged to think outside the box to work more effectively and efficiently. Employees, for the most part, all get along famously and are very helpful across the various departments/divisions. HR makes the effort to build and maintain employee morale. Good pay and benefits. Fast-paced work environment so not for the faint of heart but this is a government contracting company so you have to move at the client's pace and not yours. Interesting that a good number of former employees who complained the loudest, have either returned to the company or have attempted to return.

    Cons

    Some of the pros work against them. Because it's a mid-sized company, some positions don't offer room for growth since the number of jobs is limited - but just the nature of the beast. Encouraged to think outside the box but those not comfortable outside the box are usually those who also resist change and turn it into a negative. Fast-paced environment not for everyone.

    Family owned company that is aggressively looking to grow. Wonderful senior executives who care deeply about their employees.

    Still a small business. Not a lot of opportunity to move around within divisions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SOSi

    Pros

    This is a privately held company that is family owned and operated. That's a disclaimer, not a pro. You love your family but you probably can't stand them for the majority of the time. The work here is very interesting and there are opportunities to expand and excel. Benefits are great and... ok, that's really all there is.

    Cons

    If it's so great to work here, why is the C-suite in NY? This disconnect between the CEO and the headquarters makes it pretty easy to understand why there's no investment in the culture here. Turnover's pretty high and there's a big emphasis on bringing in experienced people (and then not letting them use their experience and micromanaging everything). There's an air of negativity that may stem from one lost proposal after another, constantly seeing coworkers leave, or having work/ideas stifled.
