    I have been working at Symmetry Corp full-time

    The people are great
    The work is challenging
    Bleeding edge technology
    A lot of Career Opportunities

    Some growing pains, but the knowledge and opportunities out weigh this

    I have been working at Symmetry Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of knowledge here to gain if you find the right person. Some of the current staff is a wealth of knowledge that you can pick up on and use going forward.

    Cons

    -Management is horrible along with some specific new directors I will not name. It's been a complete turnover over the past few years here and it only gets worse and worse.
    -Plan on working off hours and weekends regularly. Don't plan on spending time with your family if you want to keep your job. Their is no work-life balance here.
    -Pay is low compared to market value.
    -High stress. You will come on board with maybe little to non experience and they will put you on large customers and introduce you with experience to handle their multi-million dollar companies.
    -The non compete you sign is binding. They don't want you to leave and work for any other local SAP organization.
    -They force you to write positive work reviews so that they can be regarded as a highly respected growing company.

    This company is not a great place to be. I'm on the way out shortly here once I finalize my decision on which company to choose. I see that a lot of people shared their opinion on this place over time, and after all the negative reviews a lot of 'fake positive' reviews were wrote by management and staff. Don't be fooled. Their are far better SAP companies around the Milwaukee area to work for. If you get hired by this one, you will be in a hard place trying to move onto a different one with the non-compete you sign.

    Pros

    They will pay you very well if you work hard and do well. Managers are very flexible with hours and letting you work from home as needed. Great IT experience.

    Cons

    More night and weekend work with more experience. A lot of people feel overworked as this is a consulting firm, so you will have more than one customer.

    I have been working at Symmetry Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with company for over 2 years and don't have anything negative to say. This review is not fake and I throughly enjoy my position with the company. Like with any job, it's what you make of it. I'm compensated well, everyone is helpful when I ask and I throughly enjoy my team. Benefits and vacation are also both decent. Perhaps I'm just a positive person but this company is not as bad as some of the reviewers are saying. Symmetry is full of really great people and if your considering a position here give them a shot! They are very unique in the IT industry and growing rapidly.

    Cons

    This company is growing very fast and there can sometimes be a little disconnect between management and various teams, but nothing more than any other company I've worked at.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work with a multitude of different technologies in a number of different environments.
    Challenging and fast paced
    Great team members, supportive team environment

    Cons

    24/7 365 on call
    Work/life balance and lack thereof
    Below market pay, with above market expectations
    Muddled middle management
    Consistently burnt out

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow, try to keep the benefits of a small business & large organization opposed to the status quo of the negatives. It appears management is getting more and more detached from the consultants, and continued siloing of roles

    Pros

    Symmetry went through a purchase last year and it was definitely for the better. The new management team has a wealth of experience and is growing the company quickly. I love the fast pace because you get your hands on multiple projects where you feel like you're really making a difference.

    Everyone is very friendly and willing to help you learn along the way which has been a great help. The amount of expertise in the office is impressive!

    Cons

    There isn't a covered parking lot so I have to brush my car off when it snows.

    Advice to Management

    Love the growth plan, keep sharing it with us - it makes us feel more involved in the process.

    Pros

    Passionate and hard working employees and management that take pride in the work they do.
    Fast growing, challenging atmosphere; if you don't enjoy multitasking and a fast paced environment this is not the place for you.
    Good benefits; great talented people.

    Cons

    The other side of growing to fast: some days time does not seem to be enough.
