Pros

1.) They are a company with great values.
2.) Each of my supervisors (I was moved to three different projects while working there) were extremely helpful and eager to share their knowledge.
3.)Great for a first time intern. They are very reasonable in what they expect out of you.

Cons

1.) I would typically work about 10 hours a night, so I didn't have much of a social life that summer.
2.) I would have liked to have had more responsibilities with respect to project planning/management.

    Lot's of good ideas and good people but a thorny management structure.

    Pros

    MBP has an excellent on-boarding process. Their HR group is engaged and "hip" despite the fact they advertise one salary and then make the offer at a seriously reduced rate. The process is a good one and a candidate gets to meet a lot of people during the interview process. That helps with red flags, meaning that the candidate can see if there may be a "problem" working with an MBP employee.

    Cons

    The internal politics are pretty disruptive. There are people in management positions that shouldn't be in them. The marketing department is in disarray. The growth plan is 15 years behind-the-times. MBP is one of these firms that has sort of "succeeded" despite its dysfunction. Fairly typical of firms such as these. It's overall dysfunction is catching up with it.

    Advice to Management

    Management at headquarters needs a thorough and complete housecleaning. Some need to retire and some need to go do something else. Interpersonal and intra-personnel relationships at high levels need to be scrutinized closely. These relationships cause overall friction among employees and thwart company growth.

  2. A company that valued teamwork
