    Pros

    The best thing about MAP are their MAPsters.... the People. They have a Weds Lunch that's a great place to see others and take a MUCH NEEDED break from work. Did i say the People?
    The Founder Tom A. is a real pleasure to work with and dedicated. The Product is fantastic and can help MANY people! and and did i mention the People?

    Cons

    There is a clear sense of unfair treatment, there is no appreciation for hard work, politics are huge, the Sr, Management have poor planning skills and are not honest with their people. There is too much Drama and Favoritism. Most have no to little trust for upper management.
    I Agree with the other reviewer... don't even think about working for MAP!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan Plan Plan... Celebrate more, Treat your people like professional HUMAN BEINGS, respect your talent and reward them appropriately and timely.
