    I have been working at SBM Management Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SBM has a great working environment. It’s a perfect place for people who like working in a fast paced environment and enjoy being challenged. They definitely allow you the opportunity to grow within the company. The leadership team knows how to lead and inspire, they have a great outlook for the company and actually care about their employees. Due to this, it’s clear that you’re doing something important for the company itself. You are able to see the impact you’re having on it and that’s not something that a lot of companies take time to highlight. One of my favorite things about the company is the culture. You have the opportunity to meet everyone within the company through quarterly mixers and events. Overall my experience with the company has been very positive!

    Cons

    Complex expectations and strict deadlines

    Pros

    Company is growing, nice people, great office space and perks. A lot of potential for individual growth

    Cons

    Not the best training, more of the learn on your own mentality. Typical growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to change too many things at one time only creates instability in processes. Change one thing at a time so it lasts longer.

    I worked at SBM Management Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The local management was good. The people I worked with were great people.

    Cons

    I was told I would have an evaluation after 3 months for an extra dollar per hour and that never happened after 10 months of working there. The site I worked at was hit by a large-scale fire and the maintenance team I worked with recieved little to no breathing protection, exposing us to hazardous fumes. We were constantly told we were getting pay raises and a Christmas bonus, yet by the time I left in August the next year we had received neither. The work truck we had was falling apart and unsafe to move the thousands of dollars in heavy equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees.

    Pros

    Met a lot of great people within the company that all works very hard.

    Cons

    Doesn't promote work life balance and understaffed. Benefits and holidays not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider workload for employees and promote work life balance. . This will help with turnover if employees are less stressed and more happy.

    Pros

    If your on the management team, you build up vacation and sick time quicker. If you do meet you expectations within the five fields your entitle to a bonus.

    Employees get decent benefits depending on the site and management group.

    Cons

    You know I do see that a lot of folks here have a lot of negative experiences within the company.

    For anyone seeking a management position here is that you ask and ask questions. I will say that training could be better and from time to time you will be left in a scenario where you have to figured things out by yourself. To me it’s always been challenging and I do like challenging things but that’s me.

    As a manager in the company my best advise to anyone seeking a management position is to look at yourself first. You want to create a work atmosphere that is good for your employees. Treat them fair, don’t go believing everything you hear first. Be fair and respectful to everyone and listen. Go by the facts and the truth. If you don’t know how to handle a situation it’s okay to seek HR help, don’t put yourself in a situation where you loose respect from your employees. Remember that your employees are what keep the ball rolling.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons I should of put it on here. But I do have a saying I liked to share and it’s something that I stick too. Your are the same as the weakest member of your crew. If YOUR the weakest member and your a manager- you will reflect through the conduct of your employees and their actions.
