    I worked at Syncsort full-time

    Pros

    Highly intelligent and smart people, very selective hiring and inspiring, hands on management. Even though the company has been around for 40 years, it has a start up feel with development running agile process, fun zone with ping-pong tournaments and free breakfast on Fridays. Opportunity to work with cutting edge technology like Hadoop.

    Cons

    Innovation is sometimes held back due to legacy code and old platform support

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees, listen to their feedback and be more transparent

    Pros

    Helpful and nice colleagues for the most part. Flexible hours if you get things done and know how to push back.

    Cons

    Management running company into the ground. People laid off, people quitting left and right, corporate restructuring. No direction, no vision, no future. Below-market pay, stagnant earning potential, no 401k match, no perks. Packed with lifers, no idea what's out there, impotent attitudes. No culture, no effort to improve morale. Bad infrastructure, outdated technology. Gray, worn-out workspace. Stuck in old ways, going through the motions. Endless meetings, rehashing decisions, design by committee (management's solution: more meetings, larger committees). Estimates ignored, plans change weekly (management's advice: plan better, work weekends). Management deflects everything back to employees, no leadership. No transparency, management obsessed with who said what. (Never talk to the rats; everyone knows who they are.) Least-liked people given chief roles (better yet – promoted to management).

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes: employees recognize a sinking ship. Face the problems, not control what employees say (it makes people talk more). Don't begrudge every little benefit for employees – it's demoralizing. Listen to employees; spend on employees; spare employees the positive spin – they can see through it. (But who doesn't see what's coming?)
