    Pros

    Good benefits, Great Reward system for top performers.

    Cons

    Poor culture. No ownership of issues. Many don't follow proper procedures

    Advice to Management

    Clients come first. Lack of critical thinking and ownership of issues are a big problem. Need to give employees the ability to make decisions to best serve our clients. Values are great but they don't jive with overall culture of employees.

  2. Pretty good company

    Pros

    It was a really good environment to work in. All of the people were really friendly and cooperated well. I would recommend this company to a friend.

    Cons

    The office was not organized at times and it would be difficult to find certain paperwork. Would ask questions and never get a definite response

    Advice to Management

    Get your stuff together and train the employees better

    Pros

    Individual employee benefit consultants want to do the right thing by their clients.

    Cons

    Deplorable management in local offices. Collusion between HR and management allows for a climate of unprofessional behavior to thrive.

    Pros

    I get to work with the smartest professionals, both locally and nationally. The exemplifies teamwork, professionalism and an entrepreneur spirit. The firm also offers outstanding national training and resources.

    Cons

    All I can think of is implementing a national staffing program to further streamline staffing needs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum and great work! I am so proud to be part of this amazing organization and culture.

    Poor firm with an operational structure that does not foster growth; avoid if you can.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours during non-peak seasons, partners have an open door policy, competitive salaries with midsize firms (although it wants to be considered a bigger player in the industry).

    Cons

    By far the major factor that turns current employees and former employees sour is the office culture. Many people operate in a clique. If you are included in that clique, you receive preference on engagements, receive vanilla positive evaluations, and are allowed to participate in the planning of all firm functions. If you are not part of the clique? You will be subjected to non-responsive cold stares to jovial greetings and will face a much harder path to management.

    The management level is lacking in quality talent. Most of the managers are not technically sound enough to provide clients with the services MHM offers.

    The staff level is grossly understaffed.

    By having a strategic alliance with CBIZ and by obtaining growth through acquisitions, the shareholders of MHM, the attest practice, have hardly any incentive to grow the business. This has led to partners that are either incapable of selling firm services and/or lacking the desire to do so.

    The firm is not committed to being a leader in technology. I believe this will leave the firm behind the rest of the competition in the long run.

    I will be leaving the firm after busy season. If you are considering this firm, I would suggest reading the other recent reviews of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your staff room and facilitate an environment where everyone is welcome.
    Replace partners who received pay days by selling their business to CBIZ with younger and hungrier replacements.
    Be committed to technologies that will allow for efficiency and greater synergy.

    Pros

    Some very talented and wonderful people work for this company.

    Cons

    Have suffered from multiple changes in company direction and missed communication opportunities with internal staff. Has lost its personal feel and become more of a cold corporate environment

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthcoming with vision for company and implement a strategic communication chain from the bottom up.

    Pros

    Pay is good but that is about all I can say.

    Cons

    Drama, drama, drama, team leaders are the absolute worst. All they do is spend their time figuring ways to call out employees to get in good graces with management. You cannot win with this place because H.R is ALWAYS on the upper management side. In the end you will either quit from unhappiness or get fired. All they do is pin point your mistakes and what you can do better when they can't even do it themselves. Miserable the entire time I was there, couldn't wait to get out of there and I did!!!! They have their favorites actually there are approximately 4 employees in the department I was in that got credit for everything at every meeting. Nothing anyone else did was ever acknowledged. It was like it didn't matter what happened they did no wrong. I did discover the only way to get ahead is to back stab coworkers and I for one will not do that. . Never seen such horrible management and team environment as that place. Team leaders and managers and Human Resources are supposed to work with employees to make a great environment to work at but instead all they did was mircro manage and back stab. You will be sorry if you accept a position with them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop BACK STABBING! Instead focus on trying to get everyone to work together instead of creating such a bad environment.

    Pros

    The office vibe is great. You get a nice small office feel, with the nation-wide resources of a big company. All of the associates look to help each other and make the work experience that much better for everybody. Great work/life balance. Very flexible with schedules as long as you get quality work done. I've had great development training with managers and overall couldn't be happier with where I am beginning my career

    Cons

    There is some inconsistent top-to-bottom communication from the senior managers down to the associates, this has led to some stressful situations because we appeared to be pretty unorganized at times.

    Advice to Management

    We just need to develop a better system of communication, and better planning for the busier times of the year. Both of which I have already started to see improvement.
