    I worked at M V S full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a struggle. They are conveniently located off several metro lines. As others have said they buy lunch on Fridays.

    Cons

    Too many to list (but I'll try): - management lies about job responsibilities, duties and pay during interview then claims you misunderstood. - turnover is sky high so work is constantly dropped or lost. - no control over costs means nearly every order loses money - lack of leadership from top down. In fact if you're not part of the "family" you're seen as an inconvenience and expense to be cut. Don't be female either, they can be horribly sexist. - management will not listen to input or suggestions from staff. Policies and processes that make no sense are pushed because "that's the way we've always done it" - micromanagement over the most inane details. Arguing over a few cents costs the company more in time than is recovered by correcting the issue. - contracts are not followed and are not in compliance - ever changing commission structures - morale is horrible due to micromanagement, lack of trust in employees and high turnover - IT is constantly making mistakes with orders - business strategy of hardware reselling is too unprofitable - management refuses to take any responsibility and constantly blames the staff for issues they've caused - quality is terrible because of untrained staff and subcontractors. - focus is only on cutting costs. There's no focus on driving revenue. They've lost money quarter after quarter for more than a year. As a company that's been around for nearly 2 decades they should have better control of their costs and be past "start up" aches and pains - benefits are terrible and pay is under market - management hides in their offices rarely interacting with staff but they are hawkish on making sure you're working every minute of the day. Better not show up even a few minutes late or leave a second before 6pm. Don't talk to coworkers unless it's entirely about work related items.

    Advice to Management

    Either decide to trust your employees to do the job you hired them to do or fire everyone and run it yourself. Stop hiding and interact with the staff. Listen to what they say and actually consider it or be up front that you are not open to suggestions. Watch costs but empower the sales staff to bring in new business; incentivize them with a reasonable commission structure. Bring your benefits and salary up to industry levels and treat employees like you value them.
