    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.

    I worked at Software Management Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Individual office and had a good boss who want micromanaging

    Cons

    The Management is discriminating, they are no Gadhi's like they claim to be. Lots of favoritism and stuck in old systems and processes.
    There is no 'breaking the ice' with top management there and the most of the Account Managers (so called 'Achievers') do nothing except talking well.

    Advice to Management

    Learn. Listen to what the employees are talking about you! That’s the only way forward. Dont talk about Robert Half and Randstad when you are moving in the same direction with the way you treat your employees.
    Don’t be pissed that your employees because they write bad reviews in Glassdoor and don’t persuade them to write good ones. That won’t solve your problem.
    Also, your commission structure is older than time itself and more complicated than rocket science…literally! Know that it’s those people you hire, who can make or break you! The choice is yours! Good luck!

    I have been working at Software Management Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and a Great working environment. I work in the corporate office working directly for upper management and I am treated with a great deal of respect and have been provided with a very flexible schedule which is nearly priceless. I also enjoy working with my fellow co-workers and we all get along which also makes it a much more positive experience.

    Cons

    It is still a job.

    Pros

    Account managers are very good when they need you and want to place you

    Cons

    Once you're placed, you're on your own. Anything you bring up with the account managers are brushed under the rug and ignored. They only care about their relationship with the client and not their employees

    Advice to Management

    Provide better HR training for your account managers
