    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Smart Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - young organization full energy to growing - friendly managers and prepared for recruitment

    Cons

    - few job opportunities - few partnerships - small business - managers are only concerned with hours and hours registered by the client himself - low salary, receive well from clients, do everything to earn money from clients, by selling dearly to consultants and paying little to consultants - employees do not have contacts or do not know each other

    I worked at Smart Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can't see any pros in this company

    Cons

    You are micromanaged all the time. There is a camera installed in both offices (Porto and Lisbon) so the directors can watch you on your desk. You are forced to work heavy long hours on a daily basis as they believe quantity is equal to quality. On your holidays/days off you are expected to check your emails regularly and carry the on call phone with you. They have non sense KPI's and expect you to work like a dog to make those KPI's just because they only care about nonsense figures that don't even translate into quality. The turn over in this company is crazy high and they are so oblivious to that, they just can't see what is wrong.

    Managers care about you. Nice company events.
