    I have been working at Smart Meetings full-time

    Pros

    Having worked at large corporations as well as some smaller firms, what I like about Smart Meetings is that I can have a much bigger impact both into the company and the marketplace. In a 30 person company like this, you get to have the opportunity for mastery of the craft and career. The skills, the projects, the challenges that are offered here will greatly enhance somebody's career. SmartMeetings is about generating the results in a passionate, self-motivated way. For those who are responsible and accountable this is a great spot. For those who don't deliver results, not so good. People's biggest pet peeve is that other teammates don't carry their weight. This means salespeople have to meet their quotas, content producers have to produce quality and quantity on time. And everyone has to be on the same page. Huge financial investment by the company. Compensation, Cadillac health insurance, retirement plans, travel to the finest hospitality destinations. Companies prepared to invest in the latest technologies and workflows.

    Cons

    People that meet their goals and objectives have a lot of autonomy and get a seat at the table. People who are under performing and not achieving results gets a lot of coaching and mentoring to help the get on the pace that's required. I don't want to work with people think that average results are adequate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for great people to work with. Don't worry about separating people are not on the team and don't make the effort required to achieve the results. The only thing they can do is post a negative glassdoor. There's a reason you're the number one company in the space.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA).

    Interview

    It was a two step process of a phone interview followed by an in person. Very normal interview process. All smiles and an open outlooks of growth and happiness. They avoided directly answering the question of average tenure and attributed high turn over to growth of the company. The owners dog greets you at the door with loud barking and then follows you into the interview.
