Great product but management team does not work toward common goals.
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Edgewood, MDJune 6, 2012
Working for Smiths I learned about the crucial need to protect our country from Biochemical warfare. The company creates very good products that detect these potential threats.

Due to 90% dependence on government contracts the company has become extremely unstable and has laid off over 30% of the workforce over the past year and those numbers will increase as they close one of the German plants later in 2012.

One of the weaknesses of this company is the lack of direction and strength with the management team.
Pros
working to build products that protect our country
Cons
instability of business due to 90% dependence on government contracts
