    I worked at Staff Management SMX full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership, employee empowerment, recognition, open communication, growing organization, innovation

    Cons

    It's been a couple years since working there and they have been purchased by a publicly traded company since, so not sure what changes they went through. the cons at the time were below market salaries and often times having to fight for budget for improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what put SM in position to be acquired and how they grew in such a short time.

    Pros

    Chicago's office is located at a very hip location and lots of options to get a bite.

    Cons

    Work advancement and work recognition is at the bottom list for the company. This applies for any position you apply here. Favoritism is the name of the game. Fresh talent comes through those doors but new ideas are not always welcomed and continue to make the same mistakes to stay afloat. If you have been offered a job elsewhere take it, this company will make you loose your valuable time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they are not happy. More diversity in your upper management. Assign trained and knowledgeable people to departments to properly run them, not just to fill a space.

  3. "Corporate Office Worker"

    I worked at Staff Management SMX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A casual attitude permeates the corporate environment. There is a high level of diversity among the corporate staff members with a very evident acceptance of different cultures and various lifestyles.

    Cons

    The casual attitudes contributes to a hostile work environment, from my experience. Regardless of one's sexual orientation, dressing to highlight your body in a sexual manner when going to work is unprofessional and inappropriate. No one in a professional workplace should have to see a co-worker of either sex wearing an article of clothing so tight or revealing that nothing is left to the imagination. I witnessed (on more than one occasion) an individual in a position of authority to openly flirt with much younger individuals, saying things to them that cause them to blush. This is unacceptable in a workplace, whether it is between people of different genders or the same gender.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in educating the corporate staff on sexual harassment, making sure to include and stress that whether a person identifies as heterosexual or homosexual, everybody has to play by the same rules in Corporate America.

    Pros

    Good office environment. Fun coworkers to work with. Company was willing to work with your schedule most of the time. Easy job once you get used to the routine.

    Cons

    Pay was not great. I felt like we were underpaid for what we had to do. Upper management was not the best due to being underappreciated at most times.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your workers more often. Pay attention to your workers yearly raises.

    Pros

    Are you kidding??!?!! There's nothing "Pro" about this place. But if you disagree with the "Cons", then this is this ideal job for you!

    Cons

    A job site @ 2801 S.Western Avenue in Chicago is ran by young black adults, 70% of them are under 30 (including the unprofessional, rude management team). It's almost like stepping into a high school cafeteria, or riding a bus packed with high school kids leaving school. Terrible workplace atmosphere, and they have a habit for routinely not paying on time, and no one's ever held accountable. Many people complain about all their hours not being on their check. The supervisors sign you in and out everyday for about the first week until you get your ID, and sometimes they don't even record your hours right. Don't waste your time, avoid this place as if it was cancer!

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what type of company Amazon is, because I only worked there through Staff Management for two days and that's all I should stomach. But my advice to them is that they need to terminate their contact with SMX, clean house of ALL their employees (like an exterminator getting rid of roaches and rodents) and start over with another staffing agency.

    Pros

    Great competitive environment but needs better implementation team to roll out new accounts for long term success.

    Cons

    MSP Department needs a new leader, too much overhead due to lack of leadership and a balance workload.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of employee reviews and surveys. They is too much turnover and no one is listening to everyone's concerns.
