    I have been working at Smartronix (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent experience with recruiter and hiring process, she was friendly, knowledgable and actually has been with the company for a decent amount of time. Easy transition, good benefits, more time off and easy commute.

    Cons

    Working next to the government employees you really see how little they do, how much lunchroom gossip happens and how easy it is to transition from an actually working contractor to standing around government employee. Is you blink at a government employee the wrong way you can easily get snubbed and then pulled into a management meeting- very juvenile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your employees more

    Pros

    Good company great benefits such as time off, medical, dental.

    Cons

    Very below average pay, no chance of pay increases according to lower level management.

    Advice to Management

    Let us know what we need to do to advance so we can at least make average pay for our job titles because currently we are making way below the national average.

    I have been working at Smartronix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Short commute. Decently competent employees. Good benefits and solid retirement plan. If you pass a certification exam, they reimburse the money you spent on it.

    Cons

    You probably will not be sticking around to utilize the retirement plan. Many of the people I work with feel very unappreciated in their day-to-day. Its because they are. We are disposable as tissue paper and are paid peanuts for the qualifications we need to maintain. Any time suggestions about allocating more money towards raises for the following year comes up, it is rejected immediately in favor for frivolous things like company trips to Amusement Parks and "raffles" for tickets that no one, - NO ONE - that I have ever spoken to has ever won. Ever. In over a 2 year period. The company is not "bad" in the way working for McD's would be bad, but some of the choices this company makes are unquestionable and short-sighted. If you aren't getting a position as a manager, you are going to be massively under-valued and largely ignored, unless you haven't updated your certifications for X, Y and Z.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cheaping out and wasting resources on silly things! We don't care about Amusement parks and baseball game tickets! Pay us what we are worth...it would massively improve morale and encourage some of us to stick around longer then a year or two. It is obvious that some of us being compensated much more then others. We know this and resent it. Regardless of what anyone says, we are in contracting for the money, not because of any loyalty to the company. Why not compromise to better own that loyalty?

    Pros

    They will work with you to improve your career by having a set of paid training. I was going to night classes at the time I was there and they allowed me to work the necessary schedule to go to school and work.

    Cons

    Like most of these types of companies the focus is on the bottom dollar. This can lead to less than qualified people working around you meaning you have to work to fill those gaps to ensure the customer remains satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees to ensure you are in tune with their needs and customer challenges that they be facing.

    Competitive benefits and starting salary. Flexible work hours. Family friendly work environment. Enjoyable colleagues and community activities. Multiple office locations, relocation possible.

    Get more in touch with employees in order to foster better morale and work environment.
