I worked at smile

Pros

Personal needs very highly considered.
Stronf focus on equal opportunities
Some interesting projects
An all round w arm and fuzzy feeling

Cons

Really bad blame culture
Decision by committee, if at all
Lots of dead wood and a very tight knit "old school" who all look out for each other

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Conduct a major pruning and make some tough decisions about people and projects.
Give the right people some serious decision making responsibility and hold them accountable to deliver

    Pros

    Some good reasons, to work at SMILE are the educational opportunity, the advancement to move up the latter and increases in the pay as your education is up graded.

    Cons

    SMILE offers many benefits, such as a 401 K Plan, insurance, holiday pay, and for some employees to be off for holidays with their children. The opportunity to continue your educational experiences and ways and means to meet children where they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be consistent across the board, treat all employees with dignity and respect, leave friendship at home, and make restitution to reward your employee. Give all the same opportunity for advancement within you organization.
