Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Oaks, PA – July 24, 2016
I have been with SEI for over 15 years and it has been a great place to call home in terms of enhancing my a career in IT. While SEI is known to pay a little less than industry standards, there are many perks that offset that with the main benefit being the work life balance.
SEI encourages its employees to always be thinking of innovative ways to enhance the business and they also pride themselves on encouraging their employees to build relationships with co-workers to the point many have made life long friends and quite a few cases marriages.
Overall I would recommend SEI to anyone looking for a non-traditional financial services company to work for.
Work/life balance, open environment, good people
Low pay, weak middle management, very little recongnition for a job well done
QA Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – June 14, 2016
Financially sound company and highly ethical. Lots of advancement opportunities and/or lateral transfers for expanding your experience. Training is readily available and encouraged.
Company has transitioned from a pro-employee company with high morale to a company that has continued to cut into benefits and employees are not given proper respect. Morale is very, very low.
Advice to Management
Management is aware of most of the issues, but are not empowered to do anything, but tow the C-level company line. C-level changes are likely to occur over the next year or two and new leadership should do more to support the employees, while still managing investor expectations.
Move merchandise into the customers place of residence.
Product Technician (Current Employee) – Waterville, ME – March 5, 2016
Fast paced environment; high turnover rate. Not the best pay for the position/bodily strain. Constantly told "because I said so" when asked why something should be done a certain way instead of an easier, less time-consuming way.
Expensive healthcare, hours overlap due to over-promising and under-delivering to the customers.
