Company Culture

Depends on the department. The CEO is trying to improve this, but there are a lot of old heads who are slow to buy in

Support from management

Depends on the department.

Teamwork

Within teams, and depending upon the team.

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the department, but scapegoating and buck passing happens on a regular basis in some departments so many employees are risk averse.

Internal Communication

One of SEDC biggest issues when I was there.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are more older workers than you see at a lot of companies.

Career Development

It's not a priority because there's often nowhere for you to go except out the door if you're looking to advance.

Overall compensation for your work

This is where SEDC really comes up short, and in my experience Indian managers have a serious problem in paying anyone better than Indian their peers, many of whom are working on H1 visas. SEDC takes serious umbrage to a person who wants more money and are vindictive against those who leave for that reason.

Office / Work Environment

Typical cube farms.

Work-Life Balance

Getting better. They were offering one day a week for developers to work at home.

Company Image

I don't think the outside world knows much about SEDC.

Job Security

If you are one of those people who doesn't take risks, who's compliant and servile, and unfazed by doing it the way it was done 20 years ago, you can stay here forever. There's little upward mobility, so you will have to be content in the fact your role may never change.

Challenging Work

The work in IT is very challenging, but most of it is done by people who don't care to do anything differently.

Inclusive / Diverse

A very heavy Indian presence in the top ranks of IT. Very little presence of African-Americans in the same departments, particularly as developers. This is becoming the norm in IT departments across the country, and SEDC is not breaking the backs to get more black people in these roles.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They were working on getting closer to market level on pay, although that generally applies to their COBOL programmers. Other developers like .NET developers are already there.

What I like about the company

There are some really good managers and employees. The work I did was challenging.

What I dislike about the company

Pay. I really feel the Indian managers are biased against African-Americans.
