    I worked at SME as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to obtain experience and learn more about job site etiquette. Has helpful supervisors that will teach you hands how to test soils and concrete materials. Made many connections.

    Cons

    Alot can be expected out of you after you work there for a while, but this is of course standard wherever you work.

    I have been working at SME

    Pros

    SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) is a large somewhat international trade association who serves its members, participants to its trade shows and subscribers to it many publications, so you would expect the people to be very nice and accommodating and they are. Everyone wants to serve and they do.

    Cons

    Management, starting with the board, is stuck in the past. Old style thinking and old style management practices. There are some big strategy decisions that have to be made to keep SME relevant to its members and customers. But, I'm talking about the management practices from HR to accounting/finance to legal. Management style seems to be a big part of the issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new blood in the management ranks.
