I have been working at MacB full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
I've read many of the other reviews on Glassdoor about MacB. I DO NOT agree with them. In my experience, MacB has been different than many other DoD contract companies. I think my local co-workers might agree. Upper management seems good to us and HQ has always been easy to work with to solve problems. HR personnel seems to always respond to inquiries quick and accurately. At least in my division our travel expenses are reimbursed in FOUR days or less. Now that really shocked me. All other contract companies have been two to three weeks for reimbursements.
I know upper management has pooled unused PTO to give to an employee who was in need of it due to unforeseen circumstances. Again, I had never heard of that being done before.
Again, at least in my division, our management seems to honestly care about our family losses and life situations that occur. I appreciate that! Thanks!
But, not all divisions are the same and are made up of different people. Maybe their customers' fields or DoD services have something to do with that, I'm not sure.
From my observations I think our group at our customer's site is quite well off salary wise. But again, I think that dependent on the specific contract and how well individuals were able to negotiate while at the table when MacB one the contract. We haven't received every annual raise, but many contractors outside our walls have taken cuts, we have not yet. If you're valuable to the customer and IF the customer has a clue, (many don't), the hard working technical people can do okay. Again, very customer dependent.
Oh, they've also paid for technical customer-rated classes when the customer would not pay for them. Customer paid travel costs however. I think that's good for both MacB and the customers.
I'd like to stay with MacB even if they lose the next re-bid, but maybe only in my current division.
Benefits are good and I think MacB has tried to keep healthcare costs down as much as possible. Again, there's only so much a company can do with the mess the U.S. is in with healthcare.
I can only think of one off the top of my head and that's no sick time, only PTO. Again, some of that may have to do with the customer/contracts and/or the specific division of MacB.
Advice to Management
I think 5 days sick time would be a nice addition to the PTO.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at MacB in February 2012.
Hiring and Interview Process is done in 2 phases. First interview will be the technical portion, the second they will discuss pay and benefits. Both interviews were conducted over the phone and most paperwork was handle via E-Mail, those documents that couldn't be handle were FEDEX'd and then returned in the same method.
- None of the questions asked were difficult or unexpect, they just want to know what ur prior experiences is. Answer Question
They are unwilling to negotiate. They will give you a number you either accept or decline.
