    Pros

    Its a paycheck, Hmmm let me think

    Cons

    Be honest when hiring employees, fix your systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When hiring in employees be honest with them, Do no tell them it is not a selling job . then demand the sales- stand up to your client base, you say you are all about customer satisfactionr- how about employee satisfaction as well? When a customer says no drop it- how would you feel if it was done to you? You are piling too much stress on our tech agents- this why you have such a high turn over

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

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Sutherland Global Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Got promoted to next level within 8 months of joining organization.
    Good rewards and recognition programs.
    Worked as a trainer for couple of years. Lots of learning due to the number of responsibilities assigned.
    Hard-working and fun loving group of people.
    Compensation depends a lot on the client handled.

    Cons

    Lack of mentoring for employees promoted to management, dotted line reporting managers are seldom aware of client requirements.
    Lack of adequate support for employees promoted to mid-level management, since it follows a lean approach towards management resources.
    On-boarding program for new managers is seldom implemented properly.
    Training infrastructure, rooms, PCs etc. belongs to the stone age.
    Being a 3rd party vendor, it should include a client handling workshops for in-house promoted employees.
    Fun and employee engagement activities are not given adequate budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have client-handling workshops for employees promoted to management.
    Improve the on-boarding programs for managers.
    Invest in improving the infrastructure.
    Invest in regular employee engagement activities.
    Do not adopt a lean approach unless absolutely necessary.
