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

    Pros

    Good team and light organizational culture. Very smart people together trying to improve the world through technology solutions. Opportunities to travel and know different countries and culture.

    Cons

    Many projects happening. Work life balance not very "balanced". Unexpected traveling to attend key projects. Sometime long traveling for long periods.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in touch with the base in a day to day activities.

    I worked at Smartmatic (More than a year)

    Pros

    Annual bonuses are decent but I can't think of anything more that is worth putting here

    Cons

    Environment and employee welcoming are not so good. No work-life balance at all.

    Advice to Management

    Teach the teams to not be so discriminatory or make others feel left out.

    I have been working at Smartmatic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are always new challenges, most of the the result of poor management practices, but nevertheless, yo do get to test yourself. This also opens the possibility to raise within the company really fast, as you usually have to solve the problems it gets into.

    Cons

    Too messy, unorganised and always improvising. There is no planning and resources are exploited to the max. I guess that is how profit is made. When sales don't go as planned, your bonus suffers, so there are years when it will be irrelevant if you busted your behind, you will not be financially recognised for it.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, you have been very lucky to get all this talent together, but people don't remain junior forever. Eventually we want to have a real career, traveling and solving emergencies are not attractive after a certain stage.

    Pros

    People is awesome. The projects are always a challenge. The work environment is nice. The schedule is flexible as long as you meet your responsibilities. The benefits are goods.

    Cons

    Communication is a problem, not only between departments also within a team. As a company that is growing and has offices in various parts of the world, some people don't know how to communicate if it is not locally and that's part of the growing pains you are having.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the company became the typical bureaucratic mega consortium. Keep listening the lower levels and always, always put the human resource first.
