    Pros

    After years of stagnation, the company appears to be scaling. The question remains, at what cost?

    Cons

    There are too many managing directors that appear to have inherent biases against employees or prospective employees who are not from the east coast. Newly hired employees are routinely assigned to projects, without any upper management support. Once an employee is hired they are on their own. It appears the company is more interested in making the next dollar than trying to secures a long-term quality client, and retain the best and brightest employee. Many of the managing directors and executive directors treat their highly-skilled, professional consultants as if they were their personal administrative assistants.

    Pros

    Some of the individuals were great but a majority have since left too.

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about themselves. Only get promoted if you are in the inner circle other than that there is no chance for you.

    "Most times exhausting, sometimes laidback due to lack of process"

    Pros

    there arent as many rules at you would find in a big 4 company, so making it from associate to senior is a breeze as the HR review process is really non-existent and its no skin-off a MD's back to give you a 5k raise. sometimes the lack of procedure is great. we dont have a good system of doing reviews or anything you would expect from a large, established company. So its great if you dont like administrative paperwork. people like the CEO.

    Cons

    this company, much like others in the area sell work to clients that they have a complete inability to perform on the actual project. people are proposed on projects because they are living and breathing and not on another job. it is the job of upper management to damage control rather than to actually help clients push forward. the less than 15% of MFC people that actually know what they are doing are relied upon to stop the 85% from ruining the reputation of the company. good luck if you are unbillable for a period of time. the people in charge of staffing will ensure you feel terrible about yourself and give you value added tasks such making copies or printing presentations and making you feel unsure if they will still keep you. imagine someone walking around the office and asking you everyday "what are you working on?" some key leaders will walk right past you and not acknowledge your existence. it doesnt matter if they interviewed you two weeks ago and your entire department is less than 10 people.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were fine

    Cons

    Upper management has more ego than skill and while they talk a lot about work-life balance and ethics, it's only talk. When it comes down to it they just want to line their pockets by exploiting both workers and customers. Unfortunately that's not uncommon in the government contractor space.

    Pros

    Benefits were good, professional development funds were good, and the offices are very pretty.

    Cons

    A bit if sexism, not too terrible, but many people leave the company before their 2 year mark. Turn over is VERY high. Upper management hires their incompetent freinds, who would never be hired at that level ANYWHERE. They are paid well, but upper management is hired without having the right experience to lead teams. Their review policy is a joke. Most reviews given by managers are late and unsubstantiated is almost as if the managers are scared to give yearly reviews and are hoping that you'll forget about it and it will go away.
