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

    Pros

    Some of the permanent employees are pleasant and helpful.

    Cons

    Health Insurance Premiums are extremely high; PTO accruals are extremely low. Reputation seems to be diminishing.

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark your benefit offerings. Interim leaders are in high demand; you need to be more competitive or you will continue to lose market share.
