I have been working at Smith Micro as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They offer a casual environment and a great deal of autonomy. This is a very friendly work place that inspires creativity and productivity.

Cons

This is not really negative, but if you are not a motivated, self-starting individual this is not the place for you.

Advice to Management

As an intern I really have not had and dealings with upper management thus, I cannot comment.

    I have been working at Smith Micro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Relatively light workload (when you don't have any customers there isn't much to do)
    - Good pay & benefits

    Cons

    - High risk of layoffs (went from 580 to 380 employees from May 2011 to May 2012)
    - Terrible project management (no vision, strategy, process, etc)

    Advice to Management

    - Quit renaming every product every 3 months.
    - Pick a new product and see it through rather than starting and canceling projects constantly.
    - Actually explain to employees the goals, vision, and strategy for the company other than just always saying "we have lots of customers interested, it will all get better soon."
