Sigmatech is living in the past with no hope for the future
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 11, 2016
Sigmatech is a small company with a small company mentality. Management is the same as it was when it started more than 20 years ago. The executive leadership is weak, always bowing to the owner who is out of touch. The infrastructure is slow, lethargic, and ineffective. The company is stuck in the past with no ability to recognize the fact that other more sophisticated companies have moved past them. Sigmatech tries to overcome this fault with protest after protest after protest. All to no avail. The lawyers are the only ones making any money.
A typical day at work includes listening to the gossip of the secretaries and the senior administrative staff and watching the executive leadership placate the owner. There is no strategy to capture market share, no innovation, and no forward thought.
My co-workers, though nice, are professionally mediocre at best. The better, more energetic, and proactive employees generally see the writing on the wall and used Sigmatech only as a stop gap until they could move to a better company. The management team is paid an outrageous sum of money with no goals or objectives. They are simply riding out the remaining programmatic contracts and collecting a very large salary.
The hardest part of the job is watching the reaction of executive management deal with the small and mundane. Rather than focus on business development, creating a path forward, or developing strategic partnering, the CEO gets involved with petty, unimportant matters (i.e. - the latest administrative gossip).
The best part of the job is leaving each day at five.
Poor leadership, lack of strategic vision, inept infrastructure, weak policies and procedures, owner lives in the past
