    I have been working at Smart City as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Extremely helpful/supportive management
    -Leads are given to you; you don't have to try to generate your own (besides referrals from past clients)
    -Extensive training
    -Knowledgeable coworkers who are always willing to help out
    -Fun/positive work environment

    Cons

    -It's a commission-based job, so you really have to put in the work!
    -Nights and weekends are a must! That's when a lot of people are looking, or wanting to tour!

    I have been working at Smart City full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They care about their employees.
    Great benefits.
    Excellent corporate culture.
    Overall this company has to be one of the best I have had pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    There are really no cons at all. I can't think of anything negative to say about the company and glass door has a minimum of twenty words for cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Definitely gives you an insight into the behind the scenes on how data networking is provided to the tradeshow industry. Serviced locations are operated in a franchise-type manner. Mix of good leaders overall. Provides exposure to the tradeshow industry in combination with the technology field. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Company does not focus on the value of their services. Reaction time to change is slow. Corporate support is lacking. Salaries are not competitive. Lack of appreciation and retention of talented employees. Not much room for advancement. High employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Company is too dependent on their technology department. Communicate more and be consistent on communication. Change needs to occur from the top down. Get new talent to be more innovative, rather than operating on fear.
