    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SmithGroup full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great people, interesting projects, decent PTO + Friday offs, great industry reputation, casual working environment, great company events, healthcare focused company.

    Cons

    Strong politics like all the large firms. No career advancement plan, very little opportunities. Poor marketing makes the firm hard to get work resulting the studios very slow at most times. Poor project management and fee tracking which caused most project to loose profit. Repeatitive tasks, relatively poor in areas other than healthcare.
