I have been working at SMART Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great people.
Change, something I enjoy.
Getting to work with a great product that makes a difference in schools and businesses around the globe.

Cons

Slow to make decisions and get things accomplished.
At present time there is little upward mobility.
Need to do more for employees professional development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees and recognize their efforts. Do away with annual appraisals, getting goals half or two thirds through the year then having appraisals is pointless.

    I worked at SMART Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. Company is primed for either sale or gutting. Penny stock. Enough said.

    Cons

    Quality control. Defective products. Weak leadership and that being generous. Outdated modes of thinking around marketplace. High turnover. Bring in a completely new batch of employees every 3 years so no one knows where the bodies are buried. The list is endless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cull the entrenched parasites feed off of the company. They've all for each others backs and its never anyone's fault when things go wrong.
