    Lots of great staff with experience. big company with reasonable benefits. Great training

    Cons

    Status Quo, Senior management treat their staff like 'body shop' . Company motto is for show only! Only want to delivery value to the shareholder not the customer. I finish my 5 weeks assignment in 5 days and then been told to sit there from 9-5 for another 4 weeks and pretend to be busy. We are not allowed to help client to do more work .

    I worked at SMS Management & Technology full-time

    Pros

    - Car parking is paid for - Professional approach in treating employees (basic respect is given)

    Cons

    - Lack of subject matter expertise - Body shop central - Extreme pressure to find client role yourself (if thats the case I rather be an independent contractor) -Lot of showmanship (no substance), lot of motivational talks that go nowhere - Not techical oriented - No projects, only individual roles. Therefore tenure is too short ..from a couple of weeks to a month max. No job security - Too much pressure to network within the organisation, no private time even on weekends, meetings held at SMS office location after client office hours - No support or direction from Managers (Managers are simply not qualified or competent) - Bench time (I guess it is because of over priced per hour billing to clients hence no consistent work coming your way)
