Managed Services Management is a joke
Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 7, 2016
Some people are fantastic to work with the exception of management. They don't care for people, it's all about the bottom line. Respect for the individual is one of the core values they say are serious about but infact it is not the truth. HR is a complete joke, they are not there for employees.

IBM Services Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXOctober 9, 2015
This job is very stressful with very little training. The workload is tremendous and with only five hours of approved overtime, employees work after that for free. The hours go beyond the 45 hour workweek. The culture was not of a team environment which made it harder to learn one's job.
Pros
Close to home.
Cons
Underpaid, overworked.

Great Company! Great Perks! Mediocre Management...
Proposal Administrator (Former Employee) –  San AntonioMay 21, 2015
I loved working at Sirius. They are have a great environment to work in! Each employee is assigned their own laptop. 8-5 work hours (typically--some over time). Free coffee, tea, and filtered water. Luncheons ALL THE TIME! Annual bonus to each and every employee regardless of performance.

Coworkers are great, although the sales force is often slow moving and they need A LOT of support and reminders. Management is over involved and often belittling.

The have a strange group dynamic of people there. It's either kids straight out of college, or adults with experience and no degree. Often times the two are paid comparably.
Pros
Free lunch, and laptop
Cons

Great job if you enjoy Corporate America
IBM Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXFebruary 11, 2014
A typical day consisted of checking and responding to emails, processing orders, fulfilling requests from CEs and management, and cleaning up accounting issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was my direct management and my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the politics.
Pros
great programs for employees
Cons
cubicle based work environment

Slave driver project managers especially among the services group
independent contractor (Former Employee) –  MissouriApril 8, 2013
worked with a project manager who, called incessantly on weekends, texted me, phoned me and generally blasted me with requests about work which he was using to prove he was doing work. He never actually generated anything useful for the project.
Cons
invasive of one's privacy; awful work life balance

Worst Job! Poor management, AP management lacks Experience & Leadership.
AP Specialist (Former Employee) –  San AntonioMarch 3, 2015
The AP management, manager and supervisor lacks experience in AP and accounting. No management or leadership skills , it shows by decisions they continues to make, Some co workers have more knowledge and Experience than management. Management does not exercise any of the company "Core values" There is no communications in the department, Lots of slacking/ goofing around, management never around, not visible , management is aware but turns the other way and allows it, find a way to justify it, no structure, a lot of favoritism by management, management should lead as an example, not participate in the unprofessional/ unethical actions it makes, AP managements allowed bullying, confrontations, on going issues to continue, by not taking action, the high turnover in the department speaks for itself. The good / dedicated hard workers leave /management never take action on any issues. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians, management encourage employees with same title to boss around other co workers with the same title, that only creates issues among the department. Management should focus, assist the hard workers and hear them out, show them they are being hear and follow up. Employees are not recognize or appreciated for their hard work. Restructuring is strongly needed in the AP department.
Come in at what ever time, extremely flexible for those who never worked in a corporate environment.
Pros
it's a job. flexible hours.
Cons
no communication, unexperience mangaement /very poor mangement no leadership.

Company has no interest in streamlining jobs; back end office processes are a mess
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 30, 2012
Sirius acquired a local Omaha company, MSI Systems Integrators, in 2010, for several obvious reasons - MSI was at the top of their game, an IBM darling. Customer service was key at MSI - doing what it took to keep the customer's systems running was paramount to all employees. Over the years, MSI had stepped up their game on the behind-the-scenes, back-end office support systems in order to better serve their internal and external customers.

Since the acquisition, Sirius has no interest in keeping their customers happy. Service contracts at MSI had a 4 hour turnaround time - creating and sending out the contract to the salespeople. Sirius took pride in having multiple people touch their services contracts before a customer or the salesperson ever saw it. It takes about a week to wind its way back to the salesperson - and if you had changes, forget about timeliness! Some customers have had to a file a lawsuit in order to get the right thing done. Selling them equipment and not providing the Engineers to install it - really? Sirius does not encourage independent thinking. The owner was upfront that he was just waiting to accumulate a certain amount of wealth before he retired, so he could work with his charities spoke volumes on how they viewed their employees.
Pros
most employees are great to work with; don't like the mindless thinking that mgmt demands
Cons
too many to list. it's too big to care about their employees or doing the right thing, despite what their website says.
