    Pros

    Work life balance is OK, sometimes the amount of freedom is beyond great. Salaries are decent. Some good people work here.

    Cons

    Zero governance of any kind. Private company, what the chairman says goes...senior level employees (especially C suite) take advantage of this as exploit as much as they can and get away with not doing what they are supposed to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dig into issues that are festering in many areas, especially within the IT organization and client services organization.

    Pros

    Great co-workers! Would be easy to unionize!

    Cons

    Constant surveillance, management encourages and rewards spying on co-workers in a very intrusive and unkind way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a little more lassitude to gain employee loyalty.

    It was a good full time position with benefits, and availability to move within the company.

    Pros

    Sutherland offers a pretty decent benefit package after 3 months of employment. You get pull time hours with the option of overtime when available. They were able to work with me while I was still attending school, and I was able to land a position that related to my school shortly after graduating.

    Cons

    You get paid minimum wage to start, and even when you move within the company they don't increase the pay by much. It can get a little stressful being on calls especially when they are trying to implement new programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to pay more attention to their employees who are doing their jobs properly rather than the ones who are not.

    Pros

    Excellent health care benefits.
    Generous vacation policy
    Good facilities and accomodations.
    Fosters Team spirit.
    Adequate Compensation.

    Cons

    Employee retention is not a priority, they have a very high turnover. Employee loyalty program seems trite. Management is helpful, but lacks the power to effect real and immediate change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the business model in place is a successful one, perhaps focus on attempting to make employees feel not only part of a team, but a valuable part of a team.

    I worked at Sutherland Global Services

    Pros

    Some of the pros of this company were the people I worked with. Made some great friends working there. The paycheck was also good. Guaranteed 40 hours a week with available overtime and commissions

    Ability to move up if you are interested in staying with the company and you care about your job. Within 10 months I was promoted from a rep on the phones to a Subject matter expert and I would provide support to other reps and managers.

    Cons

    Some of my co workers acted like children. Chairs and computers were often thrown, fights broke out in the hallway and things were stolen from other peoples desks.

    The building I worked in was very dingy. It seemed like an old Walmart that was converted into several large rooms and divided into cubicles. The maintenance staff never did much cleaning. The desks were dirty and broken, the trash was always overflowing and the bathrooms and lunchroom were not in the best condition. Instead the janitor would try to sell pirated DVDs and Video games instead of doing his job. More recently the roof caved in this winter and injured a few older ladies that were just simply sitting at their desk doing their job. The building is not very roller friendly either. A co-worker of mine would have trouble getting in and around the building and the security staff did not help him.

    Some of the management would act like your friend then the next day turn around and hand you a box to put all your stuff in and walk you out the door. The place was like a revolving door. Every day new people would be hired to replace people who just got fired. There would be new rules created often as well. One day its correct then overnight there will be a brand new procedure to follow and the old way is 100 percent wrong now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct better interviewing. It seems this place will hire anybody and spend thousands of dollars training them just for them to quit or get fired right after training or within a few months of working on the floor. Instead of wasting this money, you should spend it on your tenured reps who care about the job and have been working there for years. Treat the people who care about your company rather than giving someone a chance at a job who does not deserve it.
