    March 28, 2017CEO and President

    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Glad your experience is so positive – yes, we try to be approachable. You can call me at anytime. And myself and the whole management team is working more and more to get out into the field for more face-to-face communication. Recently we just hired two new people at HQ – one of their comments was how supportive and friendly the atmosphere at work is.... we've had significant change the past couple months and I believe it's all been for the better. Our clients are reacting very positively. Stay in touch! Ajay

    I have been working at SMA full-time for more than a year

    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.

    Pros

    SMA is a really great company to work for. The environment is small, non-hostile, friendly, understanding, and they care about their employees. There has been significant effort to improve the company whether that be location, roles, etc.. and it's shown that they care about growth. Overall, it's a great place to work at if you are looking for a career.
