    Pros

    Job security - They didn't lay off in 2008 and pride themselves that they don't.

    Cons

    It's a controlled structured culture with a lack of trust. If you're the creative, think out of the box type, then it's not for you. First year, you only accrue 1/2 vacation day per month. And save them, MSC isn't generous when it comes to snow days. Company policy is opposed to work from home (unless it's overtime) and flex time. Be prepared for overtime. Management will pick a due date and expect you to do what it takes. Your personal time isn't your own. The Melville building is in need of a major renovation and there is no talk whatsoever of fixing the building. Dirty carpets, dirty walls, outdated furniture, cramped cubicles, ceilings that leak when it rains, no sunlight. Beware the interview rooms, they are beautiful. They're supposed to be co-locating with a brand new office in North Carolina. Then why not fix the Melville building? Unless of course the truth is that eventually it will be shut down?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Renovate the Melville building or fess up that you intend to ultimately shut it down.
