    I have been working at Surya full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth.
    Very flexible and laid back.
    Family Oriented.
    Amazing People.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. This type of company (being a family owned and operated business) can be stressful if you are not adaptable and willing to accept and embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you cannot create loyal customers without first creating loyal employees. Continue the improvements and never stop listening.

    I worked at Surya full-time

    Pros

    Can make some great friendships!

    Cons

    Surya could be a great company once a new management team and CEO are in place. Management only cares about the people they like, and gossips more than anyone in the company. No true training other than shadowing other employees. A lot of plans for thing to change, yet nothing ever changes.

    Advice to Management

    Treat each person on the team the same. You are in a management role to make sure each person on your team is hitting their goals, not just the people you want too. Be truthful to your employees in regards to their career advancement.

    I worked at Surya full-time

    Pros

    great product and really great people working there. the people put in the extra effort to keep the company going.

    Cons

    ceo micro manages and is abusive. his mood varies and you never know if you'll get trashed in front of colleagues. he won't change. he's burned through so many people it's laughable. try and find someone there longer than 2-3 years. if they are there longer, they have no other options. really, don't believe it's better now because it can't be as long as the current ceo is leading.

    Advice to Management

    advice doesn't matter. the place churns through so many people and yet the ceo behavior continues.

    Pros

    The product is the only good thing about this company!

    Cons

    Everything. The CEO is the most horrible person and is a HR walking nightmare. He is so inappropriate! He only cares about himself and writes the positive comments on GD. He's obsessed with these ratings. There is absolutely no room for growth and benefits are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    There is no mgmt. None of them have a voice and are all yes ppl.

    "Unprofessional and tyrannical CEO"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good people trying to do the right thing - but ultimately micro managed by an untrustworthy and selfish leader.

    Cons

    Embarrassingly brutal. Several good mid and senior level managers have been brought in to try to help the team, but one by one they leave because of the CEO. He is the one and only reason this company has a revolving door. His monthly town hall meetings are a showcase in stupidity. He makes condescending remarks, and just altogether lacks professionalism in the worst way. I have no idea why this guy was ever even considered an entrepreneur of the year.

    DO NOT consider coming to this company. If you are here - GET OUT as soon as you possible can. This is not one persons feelings, at least half of the people here feel the same way. The other half may not have a choice.

    Advice to Management

    Close up shop or get rid of the CEO and start over.


  9. "Intern"

    I worked at Surya (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good internship experience, I was given a project that felt like it mattered and came out of it having learned.

    Cons

    Heard some complaints about management but had no negative experiences myself. Other interns also seemed to have little to do compared to me, so it depended on who your boss was.
