    I worked at SBLM

    Pros

    Good place to work. Good management and satisfied with the compensation and workload. Would change very little of the company.

    Cons

    There were no major problems within the company. Only issue was the standard office gossip of who was sleeping with whom. That is in every office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on IDP and A.R.E then on LEED.

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

    Pros

    Free lunch Wednesdays. Good people and they strive to teach you skills.

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere, lots of yelling, long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so negative. Help your employees feel like they are part of team and not just a slave. Management needs to treat their employees like they are worth something and just yell and place pressure on them. However, the employees that do work their are a group of very talented and creative minds and only because of them that the day to day life was manageable.

    I have been working at SBLM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The comradery of a select few is a tremendous plus making the experience all the worthwhile...

    Cons

    The VERY obvious favoritism, salary and promotional imbalance between the men and the women. Nothing's being done to make it a little more discreet or to cure it. Promotions are for the less experienced and clueless... Backstabbing openly is the name of the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully they may be able to rescue what is every departing and internal employees' rant...fairness in evaluating the employees' efforts and gratifying accordingly, regardless of sex.

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

    Pros

    A good culture for those who doesn’t have a firm grip or stance in this profession.

    Cons

    A place riven by internal tensions and poor leadership that ripples into cronyism, hostile environment, extremely difficult staff, to make matters worst some of them are the so-called leaders, a lack of professional conduct both from associate managers and admin staff. Not a place for a conscious, driven and motivated young mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating a healthy climate where professional code of conduct is enforced will keep talents and reduce the chaos rippling from within. Destructive organizational habits is a breeding ground for dangerous patterns.

    I worked at SBLM

    Pros

    Very laid back in terms of hours worked

    Cons

    Awful management and no leadership
    The paycheck simply isn't worth the pain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This a top down organization, and unfortunately, there are too many people with differing visions at the top. The trickle down effect is nothing short of chaos.
