    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

    Opportunities are there for the taken but you have to demonstrate your capabilities and put in some extra effort. The office space is modern and you are provided the latest and greatest equipment. Employee perks are pretty cool and the people are solid.

    Cons

    Management direction was ok, but it is starting to get better with some recent changes and additions. There is some favoritism but that to is getting better

    Advice to Management

    The software team hasn't been managed as consistent as the other departments so you may want to keep a closer pulse on the recent changes to make sure that changes

    Cons

    Seriosuly ?. There are millions cons to tells about.
    Upper Management is brain dead. They have no skills in management, they cant make any decisions. This SBM IT office is going to sink in few months. They have no stability here. They hire people and fire them off in 2 weeks .. Humble request to all Job seekers, never apply to this IT Office in McClellan Park,CA / SBM Management. This Place is literally a JOKE.

    Current site is in dire need of new management. Lack of communication and the current managers seem to have favorites and are not treating all employees fairly. Turn over rate at this site for OCT, and NOV were both above 85%.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management

    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.

    I worked at SBM Management Services full-time

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks. Decent pay for Sacramento area and plenty of work to go around.

    Cons

    Everything you hear about the CEO and work culture on reviews are true and even worst then expected. Jobs are constantly threaten as a form of motivation and CEO belittles and verbally abuses employees. There are also unrealistic deadlines set for projects with little to no direction.
    Coming to this company was the worst decision I have ever made professionally. Do not make the same mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees. Lot's of good people are let go for no good reason.
