    I have been working at SSI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is really laid back. No micromanaging.

    Cons

    Depending on the position you receive your range of activities may be limited. There is not much to say for training. They just give you the job and you have to learn along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in creating a training regimen for all departments. The throw them in the water and swim method is not ideal for a formal institution.

    I worked at SSI Group

    Pros

    If you want to live in Mobile, AL (would have to have family there) you can do that and make some pocket change here.

    Cons

    Everyone in control is an absolute idiot. The people at the bottom are the most talented, intelligent people and are never given a chance to prosper because the people at the top are all hacks and worried about being replaced. Smart is the enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Russian roulete, alone. You only need to play 6 rounds!

    I worked at SSI Group

    Pros

    I cannot even think of any positives to include here, the health benefits were good but you paid for them.

    Cons

    This company works in VB6, really? Yes really. Their software is poor quality, no documentation, management have some real issues between the different departments in turn this creates power play inside political drama. Everyone works under a lot of stress thinking they could be fired due to all of the layoffs 160 + when I left. The senior employees are miserable and they rely on them for training because "we no longer...

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, your unhappiness is infectious and affects everyone around you. The reason why many do not leave is because they have families and houses in the area and they do not want to uproot their family. Provide the needed resources for newly hired employees and invest in them as you should, SSI owes that responsibility to their employees.
