In a company of our size, employees have the opportunity to impact our success in a visible way and be recognized for their talent and commitment—and that’s something we celebrate.


The Kansas City area offers great quality of life at an affordable price, and SMG offers an unmatched working environment in the heart of the Kansas City Crossroads Art District.
