    Pros

    working remotely from home increases productivity by 150%. Leadership is very employee oriented

    Cons

    working remotely from home also removes you from an office team environment

    I worked at Strategic Systems full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Strategic Systems for a few years and unfortunately what started as a great relationship has turned into a demotivating and unfortunate one. Being on a visa tied to this employer is like committing career suicide. You will be paid the minimum salary for years and the management will throw you a couple bones if you bring it up. They give you the freedom to perform well but no one is ever appreciated for any extra effort put in. There is also a major divide among employees. All citizens and GC holders are paid at market value and allowed to work remote with little accountability. The key staff at the HQ are held to very different standards than the rest of the company.

    Cons

    Strategic Systems embodies a typical 1950's white male-centric work culture. Management has been overheard saying 'he's white so we will send him to the presentation' or 'she's a girl so the client may be more interested'. If you are a person of color, female, or have any immigration restrictions, stay far far away from this company. If you are white, male and have any random industry experience, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your key staff, no matter their race. Analyze and understand the value of your key employees in terms of the work they do to keep your company running and help it grow. Pay them according to industry standards and sometimes a 'thank you' is also enough.

    Pros

    Strategic Systems is the best of both worlds for both Consultants and Clients. As a growing I.T. staffing company they truly understand the importance and value of assuring that their consultants and customers are always taken care of above and beyond what most Staffing firms offer.
    For their Consultants: Strategic Systems primarily hires seasoned recruiters with on average over 10 years of experience. They understand the importance of building relationships with their candidates and in my experience have always communicated thoroughly throughout the recruiting / interviewing / hiring process. Also contrary to most staffing firms they offer a variety of benefits AND are flexible with different employment options including 1099, w2 without benefits, with benefits, or partial benefits to fit what each candidate may want or need. In addition they provide Immigration assistance including TN, H1b sponsorship and Green Card processing.

    For their Clients: Strategic Systems employs seasoned Account Managers with over 15 years of I.T. Staffing experience. The Account Managers are dedicated to specific accounts and are truly partnered with their clients to service their needs... not just make a placement. They offer flexibility to clients in staffing contract, contract to hire or direct hire consultants (again very different from most staffing firms). They are thorough in their screening process - including a variety of methods of technically qualifying candidates for positions.

    I have been with Strategic Systems for over 3 years and have been very happy with the quality and professionalism throughout!

    Cons

    Cost of Benefits - as they are a small-medium sized company their healthcare prices are typically higher than most large companies could offer

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire great people and do what you're doing!!
