    I have been working at SSI Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SSI Technologies, Inc. (SSI) offers a great benefit package, supports learning by offering classes frequently and a generous tuition reimbursement plan, and gives back to the community. I appreciate the volunteer program which pays me for community volunteerism. I like the employee events (summer picnic, children's Christmas party, etc.).

    Cons

    I recommend SSI encourage more community engagement by top leaders.

    I have been working at SSI Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They care about me and my family and any problem that I have had. They really show that although the job is tough they still care enough of the employees that they offer extra incentives like company picnic, free catered meals, holiday parties, ice cream days, etc.

    Cons

    You will always leave at the end of the day knowing that there is still lots to do.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for keeping up the positive environment when possible.

    Good People and benefits. Product is dated and will be redesigned soon.

    I have been working at SSI Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation is 3 week.
    Pay is not bad..
    If you make it a year and get nothing but A's they will pay for college.
    Not all bosses here are as bad as mine is.

    Cons

    Lazy coworkers
    Bad management
    HR ignores you often
    Must kiss butt if you want promotions, otherwise you can be held back. Even if you do more than is asked of you.

    Advice to Management

    Re evaluate management
    Re evaluate workers
    Actually give the good pay to those who work.
    Re start up the mentor programs. Some of us actually want to make something out of our lives. Not drain away in a class room in hope a company will take you with out experience.

    I worked at SSI Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Paid vacation time, benefits, decent compensation, most people on the shop floor are excellent people

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime every other weekend, unrealistic expectations from management, temp employees who don't care about the job, good employees are severely overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Employee moral on the floor is awful. Treat people better, especially the good employees who have been there for a long time. Turnover wouldn't be so high if people on the floor didn't feel so stressed out all the time.

    I worked at SSI Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent vacation plan and good benefits. Company is experiencing a lot of growth so there is room to move within the company. Peer to peer relationships are usually very good and people on the same level work with, not against each other.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and production employees leaves many of the production workers feeling bitter. The rapid growth is contributing to long hours and high turn over in all positions. Changes in upper management without enough transparency is leaving many people nervous. However, it is probably for the best. I do see a better balance coming within the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Listen closer to production employees and implement their ideas for improvements while giving them credit as well.
