Pros

99.9% of all the employees are extremely nice.
In office gym.
Free parking in garage.
Laundry service if you are in HQ.

Cons

You are expected to work overtime whenever needed (they don't ask you if it's okay, you just have to do it). This is fine for me personally but some people may not like it.

There are some extremely lazy people in IT (where I worked) that will let their tickets sit in their queue for well over a month making our end users go crazy that their tickets haven't been resolved. These people also will not even try to assist you (or point you in the right direction) if what you need is even slightly out of their "job description". There are very few of these "lazy people" but they should be dealt with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall I feel the leadership at MVP has the right idea. They treat their employees well and offer very nice perks.

    Pros

    - Benefits could be better, but overall they are not bad compared with other companies
    - Colleagues are generally good-natured; little in-fighting that I saw
    - Administrative supervisors were good people managers for the most part

    Cons

    - Sr. mgt. seems to lack direction, creating a state of disarray and acrimony among mid-level managers, which gets transferred down to project managers who eventually take it out on the foot soldiers (though some are a shining exception to this rule)
    - Sr. mgt. does not support their own project timelines and wants everything done yesterday
    - Sr. mgt. does not appreciate the time it takes to get things done right (you can't make a baby in one month with 9 women no matter how hard you try)
    - Sr. mgt. tends to avoid taking responsibility for its own decisions, pushing the blame down to mid-level mgt. and sometimes to project managers, despite unrealistic deadlines for complex projects
    - Morale is dog-low as a consequence of the foregoing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are managing from a state of fear. Don't let healthcare reform rule you. Be proactive about making plans and stop acting like an asteroid is headed toward the Earth. Take the time to make the right decisions for the company, not for yourselves, and then give your people the time to get things done right the first time. Otherwise the hurry-hurry-hurry attitude you have will just keep making for more train-wrecks.

    Pros

    Employee Cafeteria, Free coffee and cocoa. Nice location in Schenectady. Good benefits.Management holds regular employee meetings to pass news and reward accomplishments. Work/life balance is important.

    Cons

    dysfunctional work environment. Hostility between management and staff. Management is unable to face problems and manage, reprisals against staff in form of procedural ambushes. There is very little reward for effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management staff is poorly trained. Not very strong in leadership skills. not team players. Self-oriented. Needs training in soft skills such as employee relations, encouraging employees. Leadership and taking responsibility rather than finding scapegoats.
