    I have been working at Smart Meetings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at Smart Meetings for a while and we have an amazing team. The work environment inspires creativity, is energetic and the days go by quickly. The owners are now offering lunch once a week, snacks are brought in daily and we have fun company outings often. It is awesome to work for the best media company in the industry. #1 market share for the last 6 years!!

    Cons

    Some would consider the very fast paced work environment a con but I really enjoy the pace and it keep me on my toes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep taking care of the winning team!!

    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.
