    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 for more than a year

    Pros

    Going to work for SM&A was the best career decision I have ever made. From the top down, they provide tremendous opportunities for you to learn, grow, stretch, and showcase your skill set. It's a very supportive and encouraging environment and the Associates well being and happiness is always a priority for management. I love my job and SM&A!

    Cons

    In my opinion, there are no cons within the company itself. The management staff is always very proactive in keeping the Associates deployed, but the nature of consulting work is all about timing. There may be times when assignments are not readily available and you spend some time on the bench. I have been very fortunate and have only seen hard working Leads and management who are constantly advocating for the Associate.

    Thanks so much for your comments. We consider our associates valuable talent – thus our new acronym – TOD - talent on-demand. Our reputation with clients has always been extremely positive and that's because of our associate pool. Yes, Associates associates are our priority. We have tried to improve deployment transparency with the new TOD app and are always looking for ways to improve communication. Your suggestion for face-to-face meetings is noted. We are all trying to get out to the field more often. And yes our HR department has really ramped up their ways and means of appreciation. Please continue to stay in touch – contact me at anytime!
