    I worked at SMS Technical Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was fair for what I did

    Cons

    No room to grow. Can only get promoted if your one of the guys. Lots of sexual harassment going on that was ignored by corporate. Lots and Lots of racism and ageism.

    Advice to Management

    Start benchmarking against other industries. Get rid of the managers who encourage bad behavior. Actively seek out women for roles other than the tradition secretary and accounting roles

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at SMS Technical Services full-time

    Pros

    Pros? ha ha there are no pros really, they got rid of double time on Sunday so what do u expect?

    Cons

    A lot of racist remarks the boss did nothing about it. in fact he encouraged it. They will let you go after the new year just so they don't have to pay you your bonus that you earned. Plus it is a negative environment. You get all dirty and covered in grease for lousy pay.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about pay and actually care about your employees. Plus don't get rid of people just because the company doesn't want to pay them their bonus that they earned.

    Pros

    The health benefits are decent. My co-workers are very nice individuals. The company as a whole tries to promote safety.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. When getting promoted they don't discuss salary with you. The management does not like to discuss alot of the benefits for working with the SMS Group. Management is not friendly

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to keep information about the benefits and time off a mystery. When you offer someone a promotion don't let 8month go by with out discussing compensation.
