    No engagement from management, No professional development, Field units are very much siloed, No best practices established, Little to no training on product or procedures, Unprofessional business acumen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management, Increase engagement by ensuring that middle management actually engages with their teams. Listen to your employees and set some "Best Practices" for your business. Terminate ineffective managers as soon as possible.

    I have been working at SMART Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Like most "job seekers" I stumbled across Glass Door and almost skipped the whole SMART interview process due to old reviews and mixed emotions on here. Exceptionally glad that I continued with the interview process, and got to hear about the current culture first hand.

    Very pleased with the company.

    Pros: Innovative company, that within the last 1-2 years - has brought on a very promising executive leadership group (CEO, Presidents, Directors) and the outlook of the company has never looked so positive.
    Company has just won "Best in Class" for New Kapp product.
    Being a company of ~500 employees, and new products being developed, it still runs like a start-up mentality in some ways and really allows you the opportunity to grow and develop multiple skills and also see your ideas/creations come to life.

    Very open company - where CEO has a very "open communication" policy. Often shocked at how much is shared with all level of employees. It's nice to be involved and included with all parts of the organization. CEO is very accessible - he often starts small talk with people while grabbing morning coffee.

    Cons

    Cons: There was a big company "refresh" to change the culture when the new CEO came onboard.... SMART did some restructuring to keep industry trends to really be seen as a "tech company" with new innovative ideas and a financially responsible..... there were grumbles from the people who were "set-in-their-ways" and wanted it to be the same company as it was for 25 years....... but the new employees that were hired have an upbeat, welcoming approach and a common goal to work towards shared ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I've worked for some of the corporate tech super-giants.... and I honestly believe that SMART is the tech company that employees will grow the most well-rounded skills and will feel that human-connection instead of just being a number.
