Pros

I actually like going to work everyday. I do a job I love. One of the best pros is definitely the people. It is a great staff, which makes a big difference. At times, the hours get long and I do face challenges but that is what keeps it interesting. There is a cycle of busy times and the times you aren't as busy, in the end it evens out. If you have an idea to improve the company or to save money, management listens to the idea. There is a team oriented frame of mind for the employees. The CEO cares about the company and supports those who make positive contributions.

Cons

Traffic, horrible traffic at times and possibly long commutes, but in the end if you like what you do the cons are tolerable.

Advice to Management

None.

    Pros

    The location is great- the office over looks the water. Adds an element of calmness in an otherwise head wrecking environment. The publisher is a rue visionary.

    Cons

    The owners argue. Neither knows how to manage an individual let alone multiple departments. The owners manipulate and are psychotic.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees do the job they were hired to do. Don't micromanage and start taking a leap of faith and trust the people you pay to do their job.

    I have worked here for 10 years and never heard the owners argue. The owners have been running successful companies for 25 years with some staff been here over 10 years- must know how to manage ... More

    Pros

    cool industry to be in.

    Cons

    So many where to begin and how to prioritize/categorize all the cons
    of this company!

    As a veteran sales professional there is a level of autonomy, trust
    and basic tools you expect to have to do your job. At SM you will be
    micro-managed, expected to follow the CEO's directions for doing your
    job, your job, and/or the jobs of others, will be constantly
    threatened.

    COMPANY REVIEWS: It has been confirmed by former and current employees
    that the "positive" reviews on this site were planted. The CEO
    directed a handful of employees to write them to offset the truths
    about the working environment.

    EMPLOYEE TURNOVER: Turnover is high from the events and sales team to
    the VP level which is a solid indicator that this is not a good
    company to work for.

    WORK/LIFE BALANCE: THERE IS NONE! You will sell your soul to SM and
    like it or leave!

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how you continue to con people into working there.

    Wow- this person is really unhappy to the core. We wish this person had never been hired as could not sell and was not able to take any direction. Unfortunately when sales people can't do their job ... More
