    Pros

    A lot of flexibility, easy and rewarding work, great people, provides clearance if necessary.

    Cons

    Pay is low, salary is not the same for employees with the same title, not a lot of overtime available.

    Advice to Management

    Create lead positions or Data Analyst II positions that pay above the poverty rate. Paying employees minimal doesn't show how much show you care about your employees livelihood.

    Pros

    Excellent family-like friendly atmosphere. Company endorsed community events. Employees are excellent at what they do

    Cons

    Management has some growing pains in some business units, Nepotism is present and something to be aware of looking to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your specialized skilled employees, mgmt does not always need to piece meal information for projects to the completed, in certain instances, this practice typically extends project cost and timelines.

    Pros

    Good Salary and opportunity to work with potentially interesting commercial clients.

    Cons

    There is a lot of "BIG TALK" here. A bunch of folks acting like Cowboys with Big Hats but few cattle. The atmosphere is mostly "Boys Club" in the worst sort of ways that's exclusive to only a handful of people. The head of the Cloud Unit is very very rough around the edges and regularly creates an adversarial and harassing work environment. In terms of the work itself, there are very few resources available for someone to be successful, as they aren't able to keep good technical talent very long because the leadership is narrowly focused on their own interests, and often casts judgement about people in a very open way that is unprofessional. The rolling In/Out of technical talent makes it difficult to deliver on projects to clients, meaning many projects are impacted negatively. There's a lot of over promising to clients, and then hustling trying to figure out how to deliver afterwards. This is a senior leadership problem. Little to no diversity in the leadership of the Cloud Division...and it blatantly shows. This is a boys club.

    Advice to Management

    You have to change the leadership of your cloud division. If you hadn't been an early AWS partner...I think it's fair to say this business unit wouldn't probably exist today.

    I worked at Smartronix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Direct managers let me do my work and remain mostly autonomous, but were always there when I needed anything.
    Competitive pay and benefits
    Senior leadership were constantly looking for new ways for the company to grow and thrive, expanding to new markets and such.

    Cons

    Job security was tied to contracts that may or may not get renewed, but thats the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding to new markets and work with employees to keep them with the company when a contract falls through.

    Pros

    Superb benefits. Growing and interesting contracts to work on.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't listen to staff. Focus on winning contracts, less on delivery. Lack established PM processes and methodoligies. Career opportunities only if you're one of the in crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Nepotism breeds inefficiency. Spend more on back office support.
