What is the salary like at SMA?

Pros

About two weeks after I applied for an Associate position with SMA, I was contacted by an in-house recruiter to schedule a phone screen. From that time through onboarding today, I was consistently impressed with the caliber of SMA's personnel andn their well-honed vetting and onboarding process. I've worked for many companies over the years, and I would characterize the SMA recruiting, vetting, and onboarding process as one of the most thorough and professional ever. Moreover, the pay is outstanding and the benefits top-notch.

Cons

I can't think of one at this point -- especially since I won't have to relocate and can fit my work projects into my life (not the other way around).

Moreover, the pay is outstanding and the benefits top-notch.

What is the work environment like at SMA?

Pros

Where to start? There are so many good things to share. First of all, I report to the COO and work closely with the VPs and the CEO. SMA is a very flat organization, where even our interns get to interact with our C-Levels and of course there is no micromanagement at any level. Second, our leaders lead by example. They are the type of people that always roll-up their sleeves and stay close to the product. They are not proud individuals but lead with confidence and grace. They pride in building people up and provide positive reinforcement when they see someone is doing right. Lastly, my co-workers care about each other. Many of them have formed long-term friendships that go beyond the SMA walls. I overall feel valued and appreciated, like nowhere else before.

Cons

The CEO & COO are so close to the product that it may prevent them from actually understanding the view of the product users.

Advice to Management

My recommendation is to implement surveys and check-points to collect feedback and recommendations from Candidates, Associates and Clients on our TOD application to continue enhancing the value and usability of it. I would also recommend for us to grow the TOD marketing / help-desk, recruiting and sales team.

First of all, I report to the COO and work closely with the VPs and the CEO.
