    I have been working at Daniels Sharpsmart, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Daniels prides itself in being the safest, most environmentally friendly medical waste service provider in the United States. Due in part to this altruistic core, Daniels offers a great open work environment for passionate, dedicated, and entrepreneurial individuals to grow and thrive. The work is fast-paced and there is a lot of responsibility given to each individual from the very start. Because of this responsibility, there is always something to work on, improve, and take part in at all levels throughout the organization. Opportunities at Daniels are limitless.

    Cons

    As an Australian based company, a lot of upper management resides in Australia. This makes upward communication more difficult and you can find yourself scheduling meetings at 7:00PM to reach Australia during their morning. This is being alleviated as the company grows and develops their own management here in the US.

    Delusional sales management makes life a living hell

    Pros

    Benefits are OK, and you get paid bimonthly. The "total solution" they want you to sell doesn't have any advantages over the competition. The competitor is huge and will crush you by dropping their price below yours.

    Cons

    Since upper management is not from this country and doesn't have a grasp on the nuances of the american market, it is difficult to translate their "vision" to a sales reality. Contract negotiation is a nightmare, not helpful at all. Seriously reconsider a position with this company. Plan on working constantly, work-life balance is a myth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the sales force. Open your eyes to the realities of the marketplace.

    Pros

    Daniels offers a unique business environment where you can shine as an individual or part of a team. Based on your commitment to your role and the organization, you have unlimited amounts of opportunity. To achieve that, Daniels spends a substantial amount of resources in continuous skill improvement, technical product knowledge and training. An opportunity with Daniels could be once in a lifetime.

    Cons

    Because Daniels is experiencing so much growth we are still faced with daily “growing pains”. Nothing outside the norm but you do need to be resilient and have an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Daniels Sharpsmart, Inc.

    Pros

    Very nice and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Company has no structure. Lack of communication between departments. No yearly raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to redo your employees salaries. You have upper management making close to 100k/yr, business managers making 70k/yr, all while the rest of your employees who are doing the majority of the work only barely making 40k/yr.

    You are trying to reduce costs but are spending money on things that aren't needed like a $2,500 coffee machine and business manager abusing the employee reimbursement program, not to mention upper management flying back and forth from the US to Australia every other month or so.

    Pros

    The people here are great and take a lot of pride in their work. Everybody is really smart and very eager to help where they can. This is a great place for people with an entrepreneurial spirit to really own the results they produce, and if a project or opportunity comes up that interests you, you can be part of it.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are unrealistic expectations put on an already short-staffed group. There is no consideration given to any kind work-life balance and pay is low for the amount of work.

    Pros

    Daniels is a young company with influential leaders. They are very focused on company values and the environment. If you work hard and prove yourself, upper management recognises your talent.

    Cons

    While Daniels is still very young and growing, structures are still being put in place. It's a great opportunity to implement new initiatives then battle difficult processes.

    Very good company to work for in terms of management working with you, but not great with the disconnect from corporate.

    Pros

    Managers are very good to work with, they really know their stuff and will support you in any way possible.

    Cons

    The corporate disconnect on pricing with how American hospitals work versus how other countries handle contracts for the their hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your guys a little more to make sure they know exactly where and how to sell the contracts.
