    Big enough to win great projects. Small enough to not drown in bureaucracy getting them done.

    I have been working at SmartDog Services (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of really, really smart, motivated people. SmartDog seems to consistently find some of the best people in the Oracle community to join their firm. Projects run from standard to the highly complex.

    Cons

    Like any other traveling consultant company, being on the road isn't for everyone but that's not a Smartdog-thing. If you're not interested in travel, there is the Solution Center which keeps you on implementation teams but cuts way-back on the travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More all-hands meetings. Love hearing about what we've been doing and what's in the future.

    Pros

    They bring you on board and you are involved on a project for the year and half I have experienced. Very good at paying expenses on time.

    Cons

    Need better PMO, need better SOWs, need better communication and inclusion, training and missing more collaboration with Oracle for the Partner Network and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize the methodology and provide constantlt updated project implementation deliverables making them updated and reuseable. Recognize the turnover in PDs and PMs is due to poor leadership. Give consultants a week or two of company paid training I new products!

    I have been working at SmartDog Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company shows great potential and consistent growth. Employees have well-balanced life and work opportunities and don't take themselves too seriously while maintaining professionalism. Management takes into account all HR concerns and suggestions.

    Cons

    Communication is poor due to remote employees and management. Employees seem to focus on what they are doing for their customer which leads to forgetting about the company needs as a whole.
