    I have been working at Sysomos full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the best things about Sysomos is that everyone is pulling together toward a common goal and vision. In addition, the culture encourages everyone to speak up and for people to listen and take action. Its a very exciting environment comprised of very talented people that work as a team.

    Cons

    It's a very competitive industry. Takes hard work and commitment to succeed. Not a place for faint of heart.

    I worked at Sysomos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some very smart and dedicated employees - who are there to do the right thing (but unable to due to management incompetence)

    Cons

    zero vision or strategic thinking driving company. management mistakes "activity" for progress CEO is an ego maniac - and micromanages extremely tactical details that add zero value to the company vs. focusing on strategic leadership of the company. penny wise and pound foolish. Inexperienced senior management team Raleigh office feels very Trump-y.

    I worked at Sysomos full-time

    Pros

    The people are good-hearted and the general employee is friendly and willing to work together and help build a good place to work.

    Cons

    Big executive shake-up in 2016 drastically reduced the vision of the company to a more pedestrian social media company without the big-company potential. They seem to be really good at extracting above average work from average people.
