Good for transition into the industry

Program Senior Associate (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at SmithBucklin full-time for less than a year

ProsI was able to learn a lot, however walked onto a very disorganized and chaotic client. I worked full time on the admin side. You could most likely get what you need to get and transition to a higher role at another institution. I loved making a lot of friends there and my teammates on the core team.

ConsIt's a very young company where the turnover is high and the compensation is not fully competitive for the DC market. It was a very disorganized environment where there needed to be a lot of structural initiatives to help efficiency. The professional learning can be good. However don't expect to move up quickly in salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more and hire at the appropriate level commensurate with work experience and education!!!
