    I have been working at SMS Management & Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great networking experiences, good opportunities to work in various areas, good support for training and certifications, great people to work with.

    Cons

    Strategic challenges moving out of resource augmentation mindset. Salaries are not particularly competitive, the bonus structure is unattainable so don't bank on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The perception within the organization and the perception in the market unfortunately are at odds with where we want to go strategically.

    I have been working at SMS Management & Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I Joined as a Consultant in 2012, from a larger global consultancy. I have been pleased with the variety of engagements I have worked on over this time and the development programs that have been in place.
    At SMS I have worked with many experienced Consultants and have always felt part of a team.

    Cons

    Internal intranet and content management systems could be improved - ease of use and ability to find information.

    I worked at SMS Management & Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    SMS has a rigorous recruitment process that ensures a strong culture and highly professional staff. Work-life balance is excellent and there is a wide variety of work available.

    Cons

    Strong culture has been eroded in recent years. Company doesn't pay top dollar but you accept that to work in a strong culture with a good variety of work. Access to training and professional development can be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the culture, continually ensure that salaries maintain parity with the market.

    I have been working at SMS Management & Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Freedom to do what you want within the limits of the business model: this needs to be considered by those who expect everything to be either laid at their feet or listened to about every single grip they may have.

    Cons

    Lack of structure may frustrate some people. Bonus scheme is a bit sketchy but links to overall business performance. Some communications could be improved.

    Pros

    Large company, opportunity to move from one project to another, high calibre employees.

    Cons

    Expectations to attend numerous after-hours events. Singapore was a small outpost of the SMS empire and unfortunately tended to be fairly gossipy and political.
