Pros

SmithBucklin is a truly unique company that delivers professional services to the Association Management market and has been doing this for more than 65 years. The environment provides a teaming, innovative and collaborative approach and is a great place to learn, grow and gain hands on transferable skills. The company culture driven by its guiding principles are consistent and demonstrated on a daily basis throughout all levels of the company that keeps the focus on delivering outstanding client service and success.

Cons

The unique environment of working with volunteers that have a primary 'day job' and often the need to balance and demonstrate patience working through commitments and deliverables. It takes some time to get used to that balance and environment but when comfortable is very rewarding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue the focus and investment on technology, innovation and building of the services portfolio that will continue to drive client value and success for years to come.

    Pros

    SmithBucklin offers employees a vast number of opportunities to learn and grow. The model here allows you to advance within your specific area of responsibility, or explore opportunities in new areas. It is a fast-paced and challenging environment, but in return you are able to work with high-level individuals in a diverse range of professions at a very early point in your working life, and build relationships and skills that you can carry with you throughout your career.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be somewhat challenging during busy times. While SmithBucklin is a for-profit company, all clients are nonprofit and may have resource challenges that require flexibility on the part of staff.
