Currently working as a manager for Smart. They are a fast growing company and still family owned. They have invested a lot in technology and have made the administration almost paperless which meant i had to invest in new skills but it saves me a lot of time.
The company is demanding of high standards but have a great incentive program if you can deliver. They have slowly investing in more management support as they grow which is helping me in my job. The best thing is that they recognise good qualities in staff and I myself have been promoted several times in a few years as I have developed and taken on more responsibility. Working in Smart at a senior level does not suit everyone as there is no place to hide however they tend to recruit from within the company for senior staff and then train them up. Whenever they have taken anyone else then they have not lasted as they dont seem to keep up. The family are strict hindus and hence vegetarians which sometimes impacts on the staff in the head office but a nice touch is that they allow us to where slippers in the head office to make us feel more comfortable.

Worst job ever
Avoid this company like the plague that it clearly is ! Wages paid late, usually wrong and impossible to get resolved! Patient and staff welfare low priority. Talk a good talk online and get staff currently working to lie by giving reviews! Holidays are impossible to get as always short staffed. Inexperienced managers (basically let's anyone manage
