    Pros

    -The work is very interesting and consistently changing. -Everyone in the company is remarkably smart with top-notch education and backgrounds. All are very easy to communicate and collaborate with. The majority of employees have higher level degrees along with an analytical undergraduate degree (physics, chemistry, engineering, etc.). -The real pro to the company is the unbeatable relaxed atmosphere. Everyone gets their work done and the stress level is kept at an on-average very low level while still being productive and professional. -Benefits are pretty good, pay is fabulous considering the job doesn't eat away at your soul. PTO policy is unmatched and pseudo-honor system as long as work is being done. -Employees all have fun and very unique personalities. Absolutely no apparent office politics. Liberal environment. -Workload is very manageable and you will thrive if you are autonomous and able to work independently, though guidance is available if you need it. -Exposure to a large array of database management and techniques. Hands-on work. -Future looks outstanding.

    Kontras

    -The building is old and the offices are segregated so office-office interaction is kept at a minimal and sort of relegated to the beginning and end of working days. Adds to productivity level but can foster complacency occasionally. -Monthly pay -Semblance of a dress code (business casual) is still mildly enforced, though flirting with the boundaries isn't really looked negatively upon as long as it isn't ridiculous.

    Negative Prognose
    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als 8 Jahre bei Strategic Directions International gearbeitet - Vollzeit

    Pros

    Beyond flexible. Office feels like a small family with all the quirks that come with it. Great exposure to a lot of tools and methods, open to creative solutions, high degree of "guided autonomy." Open door policy is wonderful. No ego's. West-coast management is very reliable, helpful, and hardworking. Without the inundation of the new parent company, there is much to praise about SDi.

    Kontras

    *Pre-Acquisition (Before Oct 2014)* Very easy to get complacent and lose interest. Secrecy involving financial information. Everything is ad hoc and a formalization was out of the question. Commissions could be better. *Post-Acquisition (After Oct 2014)* (New) management has changed the company rapidly since late 2014. Lot of closed doors that weren't there before to make the appearance of a growing company. Effort to make processes more important than they really are in order to have people feel valuable creates an emphasis on non-value added activity. Obvious disconnect of common activity with new management is frustrating. Frequent reiteration of hierarchy is annoying to put it mildly - it's a farce that half the company's total employees are considered "managers." There always seems to be too many heads on a problem or project that could otherwise be solved with little effort. New management likes to speak in vague maxims rather than lead - leaves so, so much to be desired and this really drains employees. Bi-coastal education/background differences are markedly different and that creates communication issues almost daily. Meeting redundancy is an understatement.
