Great opportunity for Consultants wanting to gain experience with Melbourne's largest organisations.

Consultant (Current Employee)

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

ProsI 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.

Professional culture and great people

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

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

ProsSMS 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.

ConsStrong 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 Senior ManagementMaintain the culture, continually ensure that salaries maintain parity with the market.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

No limits to what you can do, just be yourself

Consultant (Current Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

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

ProsFreedom 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.

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

Consultant (Current Employee)

Missed Opportunity

Consultant (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at SMS Management & Technology full-time for more than a year

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

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

SMS - good clients - good variety

Consultant (Current Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I have been working at SMS Management & Technology

ProsThe people are really great ! Since i've been here I have met lots of people from diverse backgrounds with some great experiences and have been able to learn a lot from them. I have been lucky and have been given the opportunity to work on a couple of different clients - in different industries so far. The opportunity to work on Blue Chip clients is great for my CV.

ConsIt's a really flat structure - which means it will take a while to get to a management position - but saying that in the interim I was offered a site lead role and the client experiences are building my profile throughout my practice.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the catch ups with the consultants - I appreciate the opportunity to provide back and it's great that you really take my feedback on board.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
