Good place, nice people. Good projects to work on. The health benefits are not the greatest with a high deductible plan. Other than that they offer good certification programs.

Typical 8 how day but may have to work strange hours. The coworkers are great. Very heavy on the cloud. There will be some off hour phone calls for support but is good at time off and vacations.

I was employed by Smartronix for 5 years specifically in the Cloud BU. Absolutely horrible company, with extremely high healthcare costs, horrible 401k match,no room for career growth, micromanaged, company has no sense of direction, I was laid off due the Smartronix not being able to perform on big contracts. Only reason I stayed was a steady check was coming in. I strongly suggest to apply elsewhere. I wouldn’t have taken the time to write this review if I didn’t believe in it.

Not much to say. The company does what's necessary, but doesn't seem to go out of their way for their contract staff. I would work for them again, but would only do so for better pay.
Pros
The company isn't too large or too small. Reasonable benefits
Cons
Pay is on the low side of average

Smartronix's CloudAssured division is an MSP spin-off of an older, more established company. As such, it's kind of a weird mishmash of cultures.

On the plus side, they've got a niche for themselves doing security and governance related work in the cloud for Federal, State, and DoD/DoJ agencies. So they've got some income and stability.


On the down side, their internal processes are really poorly developed. No code sharing (github, etc) or commitment to scaling resources internally. No chat tool to bring the distributed workforce together. Communication and project management is essentially done by email. WAY too many "business analysts" and project managers that aren't really doing anything. Some of whom happen to be friends/family of the owners.


There are some great people here, but a lot of the "vision" and drive is stuck at the lower ranks, politically. Progress is really hampered by a relatively stagnant older crowd of partners, their family, etc., who have all "made it" within the company and see no reason to change.


Unfortunately this is affecting our profitability and our ability to grow and retain the staff that actually does the work. The younger, <40 crowd of DevOps, Solution Architects, Software Engineers, etc. that this industry runs on.
Pros
Experience in government contracting
Cons
Poor professional development

decent company experiencing growing pains. They will not survive unless the cloud unit can become more organized. The training program isn't the greatest and for a company of that size 650+ they should have a more structured system.

Had some very good successes in cloud computing and systems implementation. However, the company has struggled to clearly define and commit to a go-to-market strategy for their cloud services and Federal civilian consulting. Minimal organizational structure in place, performance review process is antiquated and insufficient, and there is no defined career path. Work-life balance is pretty good for most people and compensation is competitive. The business unit I worked in was shockingly devoid of diversity.
