    I have been working at Sycle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open and friendly work environment. Management allows you room to breathe as far as getting work done as long as results are up to par with expectations. Small and flexible company that treats each other fairly and like family.

    Cons

    Lack of structured training at first though this is steadily improving. I was brought up to speed quicker than people that had been hired before me if that gives you any idea.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Company paid for my classes and certifications. I can bring my dog to work. 40 days off per year. Paid week off between Christmas and NYE. Ability to work from home and travel to multiple offices if your job calls for it. Hands off management style. You get to decide how you meet your goals. Bonuses.

    Cons

    Not really a Con but need to be the kind of person who is driven and self managed. If you expect someone to tell you how to do every aspect of your job then you should work at a bigger company. There's a lot of latitude to come up with ways to complete your work. Sometimes people use it as a way to be lazy and blame management because they don't meet their goals.

    Pros

    There were a lot of perks at one time. A once a year travel to a conference. Generous 401k, bonus, and commissions.

    Cons

    There was little or no training. Little or no supervision. This meant that everyone was pretty much on an "honor" system, and not everyone had ethics for that which meant there was always more work and responsibility on the ones who did or it didn't get done at all. Total disconnect between corporate and Alabama office.

    Advice to Management

    When someone new comes in, just because they have an impressive resume does not make them honest and ethical. Ask people who have a proven track record of years of loyalty and integrity with your company. There are people in you company right now that LOVE their company AND their job.( I was one of them until it came down to a "who to believe"). Make sure they know that you value them.

    I have been working at Sycle as a contractor

    Pros

    The employees are great. They are helpful and when you ask for help, they would teach you the correct way of approaching it.

    Cons

    Work is sometimes overloaded during month's end. It doesn't really have a standard method of putting materials together, but managers and CFO is trying to change the procedures to fix.

    Advice to Management

    None so far

    Pros

    ability to work from home as needed

    Used to be a great place. New management in vancouver is aweful. No one talks to each other, opinions are not respected, you are expected to work late evenings and weekends

    Stop being passive aggressive
