    I worked at Smart Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Come and go as you please, able to work independently

    Cons

    Small family owned company with horrible ownership / management that is so misguided you wonder how they made it to the office every day. No focus or direction. Management only interested in lining their own pockets. Does not invest in employees for professional development. Provides no growth or advancement opportunities. Low pay overall. Layoffs almost every year right before the holidays. No one is held accountable. Management can't make decisions or stick with decisions they do make. Operate as cheaply as possible and with limited resources - expect you to do the job of 2 or 3 people. Revenues dropped year after year - they ultimately ran the company into the ground and had to sell it to Blue Technologies (another real winner from what I hear).

    Advice to Management

    Considering the owner had to sell the company in 2013 to Blue Technologies they should have asked for advice a long time ago.

    Pros

    Stable company without layoffs. Not a good place to start at all.

    Cons

    Everything is so dull and slow here. No future advancement plans for the company employees here. All employees talk bad about the management. Low pay and no good benefit package. Very poor overall satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to see the team at Smart and provide more benefits. The management needs to listen more and act less as all act as fools when it comes to compensation and work disbursement.

    I worked at Smart Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As my actual first job ever, it was a great place to dive into the professional environment, and actually produce real life solutions.

    Cons

    After some time (2 years to be precise), things went a little slow or even static for a while, which made me feel not evolving on the professional level.

    Advice to Management

    I am not in a position to give any advice for the managment, then i would just say, keep up the good work, and i'm really glad i was an employee
