Pros

Compensation and benefits are great. The environment is very laid back and freindly. You get to work directly with the CFO and the controllers and get first hand experience.

Cons

expansion opportunities seems to be a downfall. Eventhough the company is growing, it will take time for me to move up.

    Pros

    SMS offers competitive salaries, benefits, etc. Upper level management is not untouchable. In other words, they make themselves available whenever you have a question or need to chat. They take care of their employees. My job was in jeapodary 3 times due to budget cuts by our clients and each time the SMS management staff found me other positions within the company; all of which were beneficial to my career.

    Cons

    I wish they had more permanent positions vs contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep showing your employees how much you care and you'll be a huge success going forward!

    Pros

    They provide a paycheck. One week vacation if you are full time SMS. Average health care benefits. 4% match on 401K if you work full time for SMS.

    Cons

    No career advancement. Poor management of projects. The VA moves at the pace of a turtle. Projects are not valuable for career experience. SMS is happy with having many PMs sit around and surf the net. The VA stonewalls any growth or real changes. There is a huge lack of urgency. If you try to work on other projects SMS will not let you. You are basically bored. The real challenge is not going crazy with boredome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. Stop sugar coating and marketing the projects as wonderful.
