    I have been working at SMS Data Products Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After coming from the toxic environment known as my former employer, it was nice to come to SMS where I was welcomed immediately. Being in a smaller environment where all of management knows your name and what you do is such a great feeling. The office always seems positive and management is open and receptive to any concerns. I feel like there is plenty of room for growth as the company is constantly expanding.

    Cons

    Most of the headquarters staff work a very traditional schedule of 8 hours Mon- Fri, it would be nice to have more flexible and work from home options.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow, make sure you maintain the small, intimate atmosphere that makes an employee feel special.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at SMS Data Products Group.

    Interview

    Received a call from a Recruiter as an initial screening. Once past that interview I received a call from a Technical Lead in the group I'd be working in. Final interview was in person and received an offer after that.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Pretty standard interview process. Due to the quality of people conducting the interviews they'll know whether or not you're the same person in the resume you submitted. It's a fairly straight forward no B.S. process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Received an offer for employment and then negotiated salary. More often than not though the offer letter contains a salary figure and can be negotiated a little bit.
