A great company to work for short-term. The salaries are great, but promotion opportunity is very limited.

    Pros

    I can't say anything was a pro

    Cons

    They are a government contractor who I think is wasting our tax dollars. The owner's spend all the money traveling the world under the guise of going to conferences but they do their own trips which is paid for by the company. These conferences do nothing other than get these people together to waste our money. They also take advantage of people they have working for them. They will expect you to work ridiculous hours and they are not even there. They are run out of a dilapidated building that has asbestos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting our tax dollars.

    Pros

    I worked with MacDonald/Bedford from Sept2013 to Mar2014. At which point I took short leave for an active duty position temporarily helping wounded warriors in the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Knox, Ky. I look forward to returning with MacDonald/Bedford. They have maintained communication with me since I have been gone and have given me great support and understanding. The Company supports veterans consistently and always has a polite and courteous support team at the corporate office. Again, Kudos to Mr. Bedford and his support team. Your the greatest.

    Cons

    Hopefully have greater selection of work location in the near future. Also, consider the overseas market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with what you are doing. Never leave a fallen soldier! The staff and management of MacDonald/Bedford to me is like a band of brothers and sisters. The greatest growth in a company is utilizing the combined knowledge and experience of its employees together while focusing on the same direction and values as its leadership.
