    I worked at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Independence, decent comp plan if quotas are reached, friendly comrades

    Cons

    Some territories are flooded with Client Executives. Engineering rates are excessive, and Technical Resources are not local. Forsythe acquisition was painful. Sirius brand unfamiliar unless the customer's environment was heavy in IBM.

    Advice to Management

    When you acquire a competitor, make sure you know what you are getting into

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sirius Computer Solutions full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Big company. You can be on the bench for up to 6 months before they eliminate your role.

    Cons

    Nepotistic culture. Hand full of folks running the show. You are nothing but a number once employed. The company keeps acquiring other companies to get bigger but integration is pretty poor. Management will lie to you. Management will lie to you over and over again. If you like being complacent and being under the radar, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the lies and give people an opportunity to grow.

      Pros

      Management style is a plus and was not overbearing. The company does well.

      High pressure coming from other business units and lack of appreciation for some roles.

      Provide more appreciation for all employees rather than just sales or client facing. The back-end office should be recognized and rewarded similarly to those on the client side.
