I have been working at SMS Management & Technology part-time (More than a year)

Pros

- SMS has many very talented, smart, inspiring and determined people and it is just great to work with them
- You are in charge of your own career, meaning you can get involved as much or as little as you like
- Flat structure. Our consultants’ experience range from graduate to executive and they all have the same title ‘Consultant’. It is really up to you what you make out of it. You can become thought leader in an area of your interest, develop IP, make presentations to your topics, share your knowledge
- A fantastic variety of industries, clients and projects
- No big transformation projects. All our projects are small to medium sized. This has the advantage that you actually can oversee the project, understand the bigger picture and make a real difference on the project
- Great management support to approve flexible work arrangements, part time work arrangements or unpaid leave. Things like these make work real fun.
- Very approachable Senior Management
- Lots of opportunity to get involved in building and improving the company

Cons

- No fancy overseas training trips
- The flat hierarchy can also lead to lack of self-motivation, as there no peer pressure to compete against for the next promotion
- No foreseeable hierarchy jumps and therefore also no foreseeable salary jumps. It’s a bit hard to estimate which position you will have in 5 years time and what your potential salary might be.
- Smaller projects may also be a con if you want to gain more experience in large scale program / project management engagements.

Advice to Management

- More structure / guidelines in content management and IP sharing is required
- A performance plan which identifies capabilities individuals need to proof in order to be eligible for a promotion and salary increase
- Ongoing investment in building the company's backbone (people, knowledge, infrastructure)
