    Pros

    Great colleague's and direct manager to work for. Working remote is great, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Client's one of the most difficult to deal with. Compensation not the greatest, very low raise, no room for growth remotely. Constant restructure, not very motivated by the future here.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to look at long term vision, as opposed to short term vision. Need to have proper forecasting for long term.

    Pros

    Good training and support at first.

    Cons

    Lots of disappointment from candidates and clients. The staffing industry is just brutal if you haven't been in it before. Managers expect the world from employees. Very hard to get lots of commission as they promise you should be getting. Base salary is low.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with your employees if they are producing good candidates

    Pros

    Overall, the people you work with every day are great. Those that do not perform are quickly weeded out and lower/middle management seemw to care about our happiness and improving the work environment/culture.

    The building is nice and there is a covered free parking structure for all MP employees. There are also frequent events held in the building, which increases your opportunities to join causes or network within the community.

    There is potential for upward mobility, if you work hard, network and stand out. Degrees, while important for much higher level roles, don't seem to be as critical for some of the entry level positions. They also offer 100% tuition assistance for those that haven't completed their first degree - Which is a huge perk.

    Cons

    I think your experience with the company is largely dependent on your management team. I've seen people have great managers who develop them and propel them further in their careers, but I've also see the opposite - Managers who do not want you to grow and stifle potential growth. This is a company where networking is key and it truly is who you know, in addition to your merits, that allows you to advance in your career.

    Pay is not great and you need to be cautious when advancing as promotional increases seem to be based on what you were making prior to advancement. This leads to a largely increased workload/responsibility and making only pennies (if that) more than some in your previous role. Top talent is lost frequently because of the companies refusal to pay a competitive wage - While I'm sure leadership is living more than comfortably.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership seems far removed and out of touch with the large majority of their employee's needs. Our direction is often unclear even after being stated as decisions are made that contradict that focus. Some great additions have been brought to the leadership team this year, who seem to be in line with where we need to go. I just hope that they don't lose sight of their employees completely, in the process.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment. Get to own your own projects. Clear guidance and goals. Diversity. Free parking. Office environment. Access to upper level leaders.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Difficult to maintain professional wardrobe/housing and reliable transportation on 13/hr. Would love to have a little bit more dynamic work, it can get monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent reviews and "level ups" in first year to get to livable wage. Pay is very low. Difficult to maintain professional wardrobe/housing and reliable transportation on 13/hr. Would love to have a little bit more dynamic work, it can get monotonous.
