    I have been working at Software Management Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a rarity these days to interact with consulting companies that put people and integrity above all else. SMCI, does just that! I was referred to SMCI by a school professor that had worked as a consultant. From the minute I spoke with Gloria Neiden Kouchi I knew this company stood out from the rest of the consulting companies I was dealing with at the time. Gloria was friendly, thorough and called back when she said she would! What a concept, to actually do what you'd say you will do. The position I was presented was for direct hire and the interview process from start to finish took a little over a month. Gloria and Eric would call me on a consistent bases to provide updates and just to see how I was doing. It felt authentic and as though this was business as usual for them - to treat perspective employees with respect and common courtesy! After the month long waiting game, I got the job. I attribute a huge portion of my success to unconditional support of Gloria and Eric. Outstanding company, hands down!

    Cons

    I did not experience any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Gloria and Eric are indispensable employees. A raise in order.

    Pros

    Big name clients to work with.

    Cons

    Not the typical sales environment. You're pretty much by yourself, the suite is designed to where everyone has their own office and there is not much interaction.

    "DO NOT WORK HERE!"

    I worked at Software Management Consultants full-time

    Pros

    NONE. This was the worst job I have ever had and had the worst management of my entire career.

    Cons

    SMCI in Phoenix Arizona is the WORST recruiting firm I have ever worked for. Poor management with bad attitudes. The turnover at that office should tell the CEO something! The account managers are rude and are not looking for your best interest. I would not recommend working here to my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Change the management in Phoenix with people who actually care instead of older women with bad attitudes

    Pros

    SMCI has a culture based on honesty and integrity. This is not only in how they conduct business but also how they treat and manager their employees. I could not ask for a better place to work.

    Cons

    None at all. It is an excellent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to operate as you are. Well done.

    Pros

    SMCI is a very good IT Staffing company that still cares about relationships with clients and consultants. They work very hard to get to know both clients and consultants and ensure a good culture and technical fit. They have provided very good training and they have some very Sr. tenured staff that you rarely see at companies like this. That says a lot about the company and culture. Recruiters get their own office, and have a lot of autonomy and support.

    Cons

    Todays IT staffing business always has its ups and downs but that is more indicative of the industry then SMCI. They do have high expectations, but if you like this industry this is a great company to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your online presence SMCI has a positive and loyal following with many in the IT community and it would be nice if that was reflected on sites like this.
