    Pros

    Respect and return business from customers because of flexibility allowed by company and customer service focus.
    All companies state people to be their most valuable assets, only Smith appears to actually recognize this.

    Cons

    Poor technical support for NAM based international operators. Smith need to place knowledgable people in the product lines offerings to support these customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place technical people to support customers.
    Continue to work on product development to keep our competitors from catching up or surpassing.
    All in all, great job.

    Pros

    Expanding world market that allows employees the ability to work almost anywhere in the world. They offer company vehicles and competitive salary

    Cons

    never sure how the oil and gas market is going to hold up in a new economy and social pressure for alternative energy solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can only speak on my local management and just because the industry has traditionaly been a good ol' boy environment doenst mean that promotions should be based on friendship instead of merit
