I have been working at Management Solutions

Pros

Great future development opportunities, very good teamwork opportunities, getting to know new and interesting people from whom to learn a great deal. Working with highly capable customers, with very interesting meetings and highly demanding relationships.

Cons

Long hours, not extremely well paid, great stress, not always interesting projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enhance teamwork, explain project development better. I would advise them to try to creat an atmopshere of a more integrated team, with a greater motivation for accomplishing the goals that are set for the project, not only using team people to carry out specific tasks without bearing in mind that there is an overal objective.

    I worked at Management Solutions

    Pros

    They have a good good carreer plan, great travel policies, are technically competent, and have huge clients.

    Cons

    There's a lack of people skills from senior management, poor human resources policies, poor communication, limited client diversity, total lack of meritocracy (if you work well, you get promoted 1 level every year. If you don't, you will be promoted the same).
    I worked at the Company's Brazilian office and they don't have any autonomy to decide they. I've heard it is the same on other offices. The HQ in Madrid centralizes everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve human resources policies and meritocracy. They should do a management consulting project internally and try to apply the advices they give for the clients at home.

    I have been working at Management Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Generally speaking management is pretty understanding
    -Coworkers are young, energetic, and friendly
    -Very social atmosphere
    -Work is as challenging as you make it
    -Regular raises
    -Clear upward mobility
    -Travel opportunities
    -Training Opportunities
    -Work is left at work

    Cons

    -Below average salaries for locals
    -Compensation structure heavily skewed toward traveling employees
    -Hours can be rough depending upon luck with a project
    -Raises NEVER given more often than once a year
    -Advancement structure that is very inflexible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is pretty obvious that the turnover rate is due to the below average salaries. The Pros make up for some of this, but the discount is pretty heavy. There is a reason that the company's clients hire away employees after MS gets them trained. A little better salaries would go a long way toward retention rates. MS can also be pretty inflexible when it comes to advancement and raises. These ONLY happen once a year. It doesn't matter if you are the best employee MS have ever seen. Advancement only happens in late summer. Employees that travel also get compensated 2-3 times what locals get paid. This sometimes causes discontentment and hard feelings.

    The company culture is pretty good. That and the travel opportunities (you have to ask if you want to travel) are pretty good Pros.
