Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at SmartWorks full-time

Pros

Helps a lot in Immigration a lot. Transparency in pay. They want you to be successful. Open door policy all around. Hands-off approach with closer supervision than you think.

Cons

As always sometimes there are lulls

Former Employee - User Experience Researcher

I worked at Kin + Carta Americas full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

People are awesome. Somehow the company has managed to consistently attract bright, young talent to grow in their roles. Lots of opportunities outside of billable client projects to work on internal... initiatives that interest you. Senior employees often act as informal mentors outside of the formal mentor structure.

Cons

Growing pains have persisted since the firm’s acquisition with only minor adjustments. Very reactive to putting out fires from an HR and employee experience standpoint, but not proactively making... investments on behalf of the employees. Multiple leadership positions have remained unfulfilled or by-committee over the last few years. The company markets itself as “Customer-Driven”, but we talk-the-talk more than we walk-the-walk. Product, Design, and Research specialists do not have many opportunities to grow into meaningful senior positions - which has led to turnover among the more veteran UX consultants in particular. The pressure to get in your 40 billable hours makes committing to internal initiatives challenging. Internal projects either go unfinished or are left on the shelf after reaching an initial set of success criteria.

Advice to Management

Hire leaders and senior practitioners externally that have successfully navigated firms in growth-mode to bolster the company foundation. We’ve been scrappy for far too long and the most senior... employees have spent most of their careers at the company. Adopt a culture of introspection and feedback gathering. Have a real interest in regularly examining the current state of the firm and prioritize opportunities and issues accordingly.
