Pros

Compensation and benefits are great. The environment is very laid back and freindly. You get to work directly with the CFO and the controllers and get first hand experience.

Cons

expansion opportunities seems to be a downfall. Eventhough the company is growing, it will take time for me to move up.

    I worked at Systems Made Simple (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I honestly think SMS is trying to take care of their employees. They communicate with them and try to provide training and promotion opportunities. The market of government contracts is volatile. Having unexpected things happen to contracts is not unique to SMS. I think the merge with Lockheed Martin was a good move for stability going forward.

    Cons

    However, I think SMS could be better at the political game. They seem to be blindsided by not winning or losing contracts more than they should. I don't know if there are problems with other contracts I was not a part that affect other projects or not. The quality of your work experience seems to be determined by who is the Project Manager. There is a wide range of experience and management styles in the PMs. It would be good to see that more consistent project to project.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with employees and have them know their vital to SMS's success. Forge better relationships with customers and "play the game" to secure future business.
