Smollan is a good company however their salaries are not benchmarked. they are passionate about developing people. management styles vary from person to person but transformational leadership is the most practised style.

They sell people lies and once you inside thats where you notice that everything was a lie,From the job you applied for to your salary and now that you desperately need a job you don't have much of a say

I like working at Smollan group but money is not enough and management is very oppressive.
Otherwise their incentive is better but it is not enough for someone with family.
