    I worked at N.F. Smith & Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture was one of the best in the business and tell you great stories about some of the big deals made to get you really excited about working there.

    Cons

    Smith does not provide helpful resources to help you succeed. There is no structure to upward mobility in the company. All of the large accounts are taken and the smaller accounts do not need to be targeted because they can not make the company any money. Smith only gives you a few months to get business going or they yank the chain.

    I have been working at N.F. Smith & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the freedom to choose my path each day. Decent training and good support from other departments makes success possible at Smith. Benefits are more important as I get older, so a strong plan helps the comfort level of being in a sales and purchasing position.

    Cons

    A lot of pay is "at risk" so you have to be prepared for down months. Inequity in pay amongst different offices from what I hear, so that can be discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee reviews, ever heard of them? Would love to give feedback to ownership, I think the managers are just buffers between the employees and owners.
