    I have been working at Smart Meetings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have the opportunity to work on Amazing products. I get to travel to fabulous resorts and hotels. The office is light and fun with music playing. People are included in everything- the owners are so transperant and really care about their team, the dog is funny, the atmerphere makes me feel inspired and I have an impact on the company- the days fly by because we have so much great stuff going on! The events are exciting and first class. The things we do on digital online are so creative and cutting edge. We have such a great team. I honestly can’t think of one thing wrong... I love free lunch on Wednesday, snacks, massage chair, social outing once a month, zen room and ping pong! It truly is an amazing company with so many wonderful opportunities- anyone who says otherwise must not have worked here, or is just sour grapes cuz they missed a great job.

    Cons

    We work hard, but what we do makes an impact. Sometimes the owners are too hands off- but I feel that gives Team a chance to grow!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing- you are the best and your team really appreciates you- never listen to naysayers they are so off the mark on who you are and all you do!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I got a message to schedule a phone interview. President Luc Troussieux personally called right on time. He was very nice, friendly and made me feel very comfortable during the call, asking about my background and telling me about Smart Meetings. I was then scheduled for an in-person interview. The day of the interview Mr. Troussieux was polite and friendly, asking me many interesting questions. He gave me a tour of the office. He explained, in a positive manner, the results of my personality quiz. I met the CEO, a very interesting person, who gave me a 'values' quiz. A few days later, Mr. Troussieux emailed me, thanking me for the interview and saying in the nicest way I was not selected for the job. I emailed back asking for feedback and he took the time to gave me a very honest and helpful feedback. This is why I give them 5 stars for the interview process.
