    I have been working at Smart Meetings (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart Meetings is one of the most progressive publishing companies- we are on the cutting edge of all products. Most of our team stays an average of 3 plus years and many have been here 10 plus years. It is a wonderful place to work, with so many opportunities and perks! The owners treat the staff like partners and give them tons of freedom to be creative.

    Cons

    It’s sad that unhappy people say mean things- this is what the internet has become, a place where you can be anonymous and say things that are not true. So many celebrities suffer this, seems to be the cost of success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing- it’s working great!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Marin City, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    first was an email with a request for a phone conversation followed by a request meet with the principal stakeholders. If this goes well you are asked to take an assessment test, followed by another interview with staff and a trial run through. the primary people are fantastic and fun people, whom sell the company and the culture beautifully, but are just truly difficult to work for, sadly it is not with them ... it is for them.

    Negotiation

    They are dead set on low pay, earn your way
