    I have been working at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time for more than 8 years

    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...

    Advice to Management

    You may want to consider re-purposing your managing directors. Possible question: Why does the company have so many managing directors and how are they contributing to the company's success.

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time

    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.

    I have been working at MorganFranklin Consulting

    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....

    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...

    Advice to Management

    accept that you dont do alot of things right, listen to your key employees and actually have actions result from it. dont let us accidentally see that our revenue is doing very well and then blindside us with statements about the "economy" to justify raises that are less than inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of true performance and hire more effectively. The owners are true leaders but the attrition is high due to middle management performance.

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent managers, so turnover rate won't stay so high.
