    I worked at SYKES full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my job at sykes, my team lead was the best person you would ever come to know. I left because of QC making up things that were not true or backed by policy. QC had the last say on my job and if my score did not improve then I would be terminated. I had no choice but to go before that happened. I miss my work there but I can't continue with QC making me look bad. I never missed a day in the 7 months that I worked there but I knew I had to move in and it hurts to go. Good job, great boss and great company.

    Cons

    QC had all the power and no one stood up for me and what was right and got the bogus marks removed off of my packet. I was a good employee and QC made me look incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    When a loyal employee says that this isn't right and needs to be fixed and removed, listen to them. I know not everyone is honest but I am and I own my mistakes and if I had done something incorrect I would have said yep I did that. I wish y'all had done that for me.

    I worked at SYKES part-time

    Pros

    Staff is a companionate and professional Incorporated Careers and Employment. This is one of the best place to work because Sykes Enterprises provides good benefits. Provided new materials and schedule the right amount of hours.

    Cons

    I don't have any downsides about Sykes.
