    I worked at B. E. Smith full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great support for interim leadership. If you like to travel, share knowledge, meet new people and impact positive change in the workplace environment, this is the company for you. Salaries are good and fair market

    Cons

    Benefits could be improved. Healthcare insurance isn't good at all.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees and work to improve benefits wherever possible.

    I worked at B. E. Smith full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good leadership, good management, good tools (portal, HR, timetracker, library, etc.)

    Cons

    Not enough IT contract. Waiting in between gigs

    Horrible communications between interim leadership and permanent opportunities.

    I felt like an "Island" when I was engaged. Nobody back at the mother-ship to assist in some of the administrative tasks (word, presentation material, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Dedicate more time on IT opportunities. There's better margin to be made, and the CIO can significantly add more business, better than those lower level positions they go after more.

    Pros

    B E Smith offers an employment contract with full Benefits including a 401 Retirement Plan, I was there for 5 years and would still be there if they had not ran out of work for me! In my lengthy career I have no one who was better employer! They are the Best!

    gone from home a lot and living out of hotels and absent from home quite a bit but you are allowed to come home at set intervals,

    I worked at B. E. Smith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like most of the people that work / have worked at this company, I was drawn in by the image and perks that this company projects. However, this is a thin veil for rampant favoritism, shameless promotion of incapable mid-level managers, and a "work til you drop" expectation.

    I do believe that Doug, the CEO, is well meaning and was a great leader and mentor for a huge number of employees. However, in recent years he has been hoodwinked by Senior Management, and is no longer in touch with the perception of the company culture that a huge number of his employees hold.

    Cons

    This company allows inexperienced managers to act out personal vendettas against fellow employees. Although it did not directly affect me, in my tenure I saw multiple cases of constructed dismissal, usually of people that did not conform to the "healthy" (read: thin) standard that has been fabricated by the Operations team. There was no job security at this company, the company culture was toxic, and the general mission and vision of the C-level team was morally bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to reinvest in the company and have one on one time with long-serving employees, if there are any left! Creating a "mini-Cerner" culture is not a good thing, and you should avoid this if you wish to retain your top talent!

    I have been working at B. E. Smith full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The entire company works as a team and it makes every role here important to the company's goals. There's a solid culture that encourages internal development, growth and innovation as well as making strong friendships. I look forward to coming to work everyday!

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly, which means growing pains, but that's not a bad thing and has given a lot of opportunity for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest internally as you have in the last year. It really shows how much you value your employees!
