    I worked at SMS Management & Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am one of the lucky ones. The team I was with, was one of the best bunch of people to work for. I quit after the majority of the original team member left.

    Cons

    You have no choice over the project you're working on. It's all about utilisation. Whichever project the account director won, if you're available (sometimes when you are not even qualified for it, or no interest whatsoever), you can be allocated to it. Pay not so great... below market average. Make sure you negotiate right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to attract and retain quality talent and the right one. Don't be stingy, then get desperate and get the market leftover. That can seriously impact on existing employee's moral.

    Pros

    Abillity to attract terrific talent; most employees are experienced ,some even with Post Grad. qualifications.

    Cons

    This organisation has outgrown its culture. Just another pretentious body-shop that has old-school management policy; this company will not always support the hard-working consultant at difficult times - pay is not commensurate to an employee's market-rate even though the company will claim the opposite. This is one reason why it cannot retain the talent it attracts. Its business model is very rigid and profit-centric (i.e. all about the shareholder's interests not the employee's); Training attendance is encourage though should never occur on Saturdays or after hours till late. Consultants are too afraid to speak up in fear of retribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organisation has much room for improving its organisational management structure; there are some who are not so competent to take on these positions,and impose their authority inappropriately. Public awareness of these matters has spread like wildfire.
