    I have been working at Smiths Detection full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great opportunities and travel and industries to be involved in. Great equipment.

    Cons

    Depends on 'who you know' if you want advancement!
    Same management just shuffle around to different positions so no great input and development and many people in positions they really shouldn't be in,
    Don't listen to input from staff!
    Too much focus on 'cost cutting'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your staff are reaching out to you but you are not listening !

    Contacted by recruiting agency. Process took about 1 month. 1 phone interview and 2 in person. It wasn't a very difficult process. Everyone was very nice. HR had to check on the answer to a lot of questions with the corporate headquarters.
