    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Black & McDonald full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A good spin to make you feel important, but you’ll get kicked out and talked poorly about once you are out. Only “real family and friends” matter. I will be leaving along with many colleagues ASAP.

    Cons

    You are only a number. Really thought the ownership cared, but was sadly wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and follow through on what you say. Actions speak volumes over empty words.

    I worked at Black & McDonald full-time

    Pros

    People are great, chance to get different experiences, good first job.

    Cons

    Little investment in new technology, terrible pay, no chance for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Layoffs are limited if work slows down and reassigns you to different department in company which is nice. Small 2% COL raises arent going to keep good people around. Give more incentive to work harder/above and beyond the job description. However, thankful for my time there. Met a lot of great people.
