    I have been working at Sutherland Global Services full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I have been working at Sutherland Global Services full-time for more than a year

    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

    Steady work with some choice in shifts
    Offered a new assignment when old ones ended.
    Good training programs and post training support.

    Did not like being moved from area to area every few weeks. Work areas were too noisy due to several boomboxes brought in by management.
    Client kept changing its policies, sometimes doing a complete about-face on some issues.
    Too many metrics and too much time spent discussing metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back free coffee
    Get rid of the boom boxes.
