    Pros

    This is a great company to work for and enjoyed the years I worked at Smith. I have only but respect for the management, and the opportunities they offered me. The benefits, the people and staff are fantastic - it really is a great company! Smith promotes from within so employees grow - they do not impede. You don't find that in many companies - they are unique!

    Cons

    No cons A little more communication...but again if I needed to speak with anyone, they always listened.

    I have been working at N.F. Smith & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This place is great, honestly. Its a super chill work environment all the time. Casual dress code, they offer awesome benefits, they encourage you to be healthy and offer everything needed to achieve your health goals. No micro managing from managers. They just want you to come to work, do your job, be positive and that's it. Pay is okay, depending on what you do. Only traders get the endless cap commission.

    Cons

    Management/ owners favor the traders over anyone else. They are the ones that get the raises and benefits. Other teams are pushed to the back burner and not acknowledged even though they work just as hard if not harder than sales. A lot of gossip goes around. Traders who have been here awhile/ trading managers really like to seem like they are better than everyone else and unfortunately that is the attitude they encourage them to have.

    I worked at N.F. Smith & Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly Good benefits

    Cons

    CIO doesn't have the experience to lead the team. They rush out deployments and don't spend enough time with testing and getting user feedback. Systems are inconsistent and not thought out. They don't follow proper coding structure, styleguides, or industry standards in regards to software development. CIO also micromanages very badly.
