I worked at SMS Management & Technology

Pros

I worked as a contractor - excellent rates. Also, they do hire lots of good people (not a lot stay), but it provides good networking opportunities

Cons

Long hours, conservative culture and lack of 'connection' with the organisation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better account managers and be careful not to bite off more than you can chew

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

    Pros

    Unlike the big 4 consulting firms it's possible to make a name for yourself quite quickly at SMS. Some principal consultants are under 35 years of age for example.

    It's also an excellent place to get into industries one normally wouldn't be considered for. Having the backing of the SMS brand definitely helped me.

    Cons

    SMS struggles to win work against the bigger firms which means the roles are often less strategic and lack the ability to influence outcomes on a grand scale. This can also be a pro for those who prefer less ambiguity and want a routine position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the practice lead position. It doesnt work.

    Continue to emphasise the value of your people - it's a good thing.

    Pros

    They do offer a good service to companies

    Need to work on that telemarketing room and educating them on how to set REAL appointments.
