    I have been working at Smartek21 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong delivery leadership, great HR/OPS/Finance people who go above and beyond, great vision & direction from the CEO, fun environment, quarterly meetings that involve the entire company including sponsored consultants. Summer picnic, Christmas party, and free lunch/dinners a few times a year.

    Cons

    Could use more team building events for consultants in the field which is currently in process.

    Advice to Management

    I have been with the company since 2008 and have seen many employees come and go in the last 9 years. I would say continue to better vet future employees especially management who will have the best interest of the company in mind instead of acting on behalf of their own agendas. I am so excited about the management currently in place; bringing amazing changes, results, and growth. Don't let the failures of the past dictate the hope and future of such an amazing company. The disgruntled will go away soon and SmarTek21 will continue to thrive.

    "Software Engineer"

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Smartek21 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been here for 3.5 years and it's been a great experience. The HR group and the Recruiters are top-notch professionals. Anytime I've had an issue that requires attention, it's generally been resolved quickly. I've been with a few companies that handle Software Consulting/Contracting and these people are up there with the best.

    Cons

    I don't really have too much negative to say. Generally they've been able to handle my situations more than satisfactorily.
