    Pros

    Pride in ensuring that the voice of the people are heard. To date, 100% Election success globally since 2001. A great creative and collaborative work environment, where passion and pride in your work is acknowledged.

    Cons

    Some of the company policies and procedure can be a challenge. Tribal knowledge is apparent, and there is no repository for SOPs or DOPs.

    I have been working at Smartmatic full-time for 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.

    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.
