I worked at Ed Mehlman & Associates as a contractorDoesn't RecommendDoesn't Recommend
-flexible schedule as long as you put in 40 hours a week -off for most federal holidays, for the major ones you can take off the day before around noon and get the day after the holiday off as well -14 vacation days in one year -you get your own office and desk, no cubicles
-pay is extremely low, can probably live off of it if you live at home and don't have any big bills or expenses -every employee is an independent contractor which means no health/medical benefits, no 401k, no job security, no unemployment benefits should anything happen -literally less than 5 employees in the office on any given day, including the owner -work environment is extremely unprofessional with people yelling back and forth -owner does not seem to have a handle on the productivity of his employees, cannot provide adequate training or guidance for the job
Advice to Management
-hire the right people to do the job -spend more time establishing the job responsibilities and provide the right training for employees to succeed -don't expect one person to handle the work of 5 different departments, employees should focus on what they can specialize in first and then expand on other responsibilities when ready

This is a good place for you if you don't need health insurance or any kind of benefits, if you want an 8-to-5 job and if you don't want a company that will allow you to grow. It's great for moms or dads with kids nearby, who need to be able to go to recitals or games.
No health insurance, no benefits, you're a contract-laboror (self-employed), but treated as an employee. You will never get a raise, you will never get basic things like a color printer, office furniture, a microwave, etc. Employees had to bring in their own microwaves and coffee makers. Management is incompetent. They don't trust their employees to do their jobs, they micro-manage and they have no idea what they're done.
Advice to Management
Management doesn't even like people, so how can they be expected to manage people. They don't know how to be effective and never give deadlines, but expect you to magically know when things are due. You will never be praised. Nothing you will do will be good enough.
