SmartBrief has great potential that needs to be realized.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

Pros-Flat culture
-Nice people
-Company does a great service and produces a quality product
-You can innovate and push ideas forward
-Tremendous opportunity to be highly involved at an entry level and learn from experience

Cons-There is minimal development or career advancement unless one threatens to quit, has a competitive offer, or does everything themselves
-Poor motivation/communication from leadership--there is no mission.
-Little leadership awareness of workplace issues
-Extremely poor top down communication skills from leadership

Advice to Senior Management-Focus on Professional Development (in education, communication about career advancement, and recruiting, ect.)
-Hire smarter people--recruit more widely and raise bases to become competitive in the marketplace. We are losing excellent candidates we are lucky to have apply because salaries are so much lower than competitive comparisons.
-Address workplace issues effectively and efficiently.
-HR should read SmartBrief on Workforce
