    I worked at SYGMA Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They did have insurance and provided t-shirts and a wheeler...

    Cons

    Absolute lies just to get you in the door. The work is almost exclusively at night, by yourself.. 8 out of 10 loads had some sort of out of place package or wasn't strapped to the trailer so the pallet fell over. They lie and say you'll make 100k your first year. I worked 5-7 days a week and made 63k driving for Sygma and it was absolutely back breaking work.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to say something to get a guy in the door, don't let it be a lie. EVERY load should have a helper and the pay should be significantly more for how hard drivers work.

  3. "Tough economic times drives Sygma to cut head count instead of focusing on growth and improvements."

    Pros

    Sygma pays it employees very well compared to the industry average for front line employees.

    Cons

    For supervisors and managers, the financial return is less than industry average. Many managers I had worked with were looking for new jobs within the first year of employment. The managers are pushed beyond their limits. Upper management puts on a good face but behind the doors its just the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting head count to save a quick buck just to make the bottom line look good does not mean its the right choice. Try focusing more on building positive relationships (not lying) with your employees and you just might see an improvement in production.
