I have been working at B. E. Smith as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The net pay is appropriate.

Cons

The senior management will say or do almost anything to secure contracts/increase profits. Values driven, long and short term outcomes are collateral damage. Helping clients achieve sustainable, mission driven success, building the capability of the firm and the field, or engaging and fully utilizing their own workforce are not priorities.

Advice to Management

To become trusted advisers you must behave in a trustworthy manner. This begins with how you treat your own employees. They are not enemies to be "controlled" but rather assets to be engaged, mined, and motivated. Have you examined your attrition rate? Have you looked at your competition? What do you bring to the table that other newer, more innovative firms are not bringing along with so much more. It is too bad, you have all the ingredients for success.

    I worked at B. E. Smith as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great concierge support. They do tend to have several jobs open most of the time so it you do contract work you can usually stay employed.

    Cons

    One of the lowest paying companies out there. Before you sign up, understand that your job satisfaction is not primary here but rather the length of time you stay in a contract and BE Smith is able to bill the client. Don't allow yourself to be talked into taking on a job that isn't a fit for YOU. You will be miserable, they won't care and if things go south you will be the scapegoat.

    Advice to Management

    We work hard for you and the client in extremely difficult and dysfunctional situations. Don't make the contractor feel stupid and unsupported for being unable to meet unrealistic client goals, Stop trying to strong are people into a job they don't want just to get a contract.
