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

    Pros

    A great place to develop in your role, a lot of opportunity to work with various clients on different tasks. Great people. Great benefits. Casual workplace environment. Hard work pays off and it doesn't go unnoticed.

    Cons

    If you aren't used to a lot of meetings, there will be a LOT of meetings integrated into your daily routine. They're useful, and evenly internal and client facing, but be prepared to take some extra time out of your day for meetings.

    Advice to Management

    The trust in your staff is encouraging and allows us to grow! We appreciate it.

    I worked at Systems Alliance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team at SAI Digital has some of the most talented professionals I've ever worked with. Strong focus on process improvement and personal growth. Flexible schedule and paid medical benefits. 4 weeks of PTO after 3 years.

    Cons

    Still a small company, so opportunities for advancement are limited. Tend to focus on numbers rather than results.

    Advice to Management

    Find more opportunities to encourage and recognize the contributions project managers make into successful projects.

    Nice coworkers
    Free soda and coffee in kitchen
    Convenient location / Nice modern office

    Cons

    Limited flexibility in schedule (must take a lunch break, etc.)

    No sick leave (it's part of PTO which I think of as vacation being separate)

    I worked at Systems Alliance (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Systems Alliance is a great place to work from top to bottom. The leadership makes you feel welcome from the offset and the open discussion in the company is incredible. I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to work and grow at SAI.

    Cons

    Nothing stood out to me at my time at SAI that I would consider a con, besides maybe the commute traffic, but that of course has nothing to do with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, you're running a great workplace and company.

    I have been working at Systems Alliance full-time

    Pros

    I consider myself lucky to have been given the opportunity to work at SAI. This is a fantastic company and its an exciting time to be a part of the team. SAI's leadership genuinely cares about growing talent and provides opportunities to staff that are not common in other organizations. It is not an exaggeration to say that SAI has some of the hardest working and smartest people in the industry.

    Cons

    Its outside of SAI's control, but the property manager of the office building is often a source of frustration. If you enjoy dark humor then you will appreciate their special brand of ineptitude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work.

    Pros

    All opinions matter and very grateful to be part of the team. Great place to grow providing exposure to a broad range industries and clients. Leadership is fantastic and communication is open across all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    My team went above and beyond in their call to donate and still didn't win the annual canned food drive!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the business as the organization has a strong foundation to build on. We have the right mix of people, products and services and look forward to growing.

    Pros

    Lots of transparency at all levels of the organization. Open door policies for business and life discussion. Work life balance is important to everyone, yet we all step up and do whatever it takes to meet client needs as necessary. Above average pay. People around me are all incredibly smart and challenge me. Lots of humility during important discussions. Happy hours every month sponsored by the business.

    Cons

    Lots of demanding deadlines for high profile clients can bring stress into our busy work days, and yet it's great to know what we do is important and matters both internally and for our clients.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open door policy at all levels of management. Continue to have our board members intricately involved in making our business and our people better.

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, great pay, transparent communication, lots of smart people and an overall good sense of humor throughout the office.

    Cons

    Only get to dress casually one day a week. Remote employees can't logistically participate in monthly happy hours and birthday celebrations.

    Advice to Management

    At-work style could be more fun and relaxed

    We should mention that we no longer have a business casual dress code. Based on great feedback like this, we agreed that the dress code should be open and have since updated our policies to reflect ... More

    Pros

    Some of the smartest, most dedicated people I've ever worked with. Leadership that leads and lets people do their jobs. There's no dead weight here - everybody adds value and most employees are true experts in their respective fields. A company that's completely focused on clients' successes, not awards or portfolio fluff work. The place is full of adults, but it's quirky in a really good way. Lots of personalities and interesting people.

    Cons

    The building management will not allow canine visitors. It could use a tad more noise.

    Advice to Management

    New digs. Dog friendly. ;)

    great team, environment, hours. if possible, they give you what you need to grow/learn, and make something awesome!

    Cons

    sometimes stressful, but that's normal for anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    company is so small, it's not always easy to come forward with questions/concerns.
