    I worked at smile

    Pros

    Personal needs very highly considered.
    Stronf focus on equal opportunities
    Some interesting projects
    An all round w arm and fuzzy feeling

    Cons

    Really bad blame culture
    Decision by committee, if at all
    Lots of dead wood and a very tight knit "old school" who all look out for each other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct a major pruning and make some tough decisions about people and projects.
    Give the right people some serious decision making responsibility and hold them accountable to deliver
