Pros

Co-workers are good at what they do.

Cons

Senior management Grade levels 23 and above are more concerned with politics and lobbying for position than getting the job done. Seems that the senior management would prefer to increase their salaries and ensure their positions are secure than to really work on making things right for their investors.

Every 6 months we see a reorganization happen and these reorgs don't happen because of the on-boarding of a new market, but to make the powers that be have a chance of hiding the fact that most of the management (senior) are ineffective.

MHP spends money on projects that are just not needed for could be done cheaper someplace else. Customer service in NJ, analysts in NY, the new data center, staffing costs in NY, the use of union workers and the list goes on and on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pull your heads out of your ass and start doing your jobs. Listen to people who work there and get them to trust the company.

Move most of the operations and infrastructure out of New York and New Jersey.

    Watch your back, MH management will do anything to justify and keep their jobs, even if it means lying.

    Pros

    At this juncture and the way this company is headed, I can't think of any. The certainly have become greedy to the point they have literally cut out every generous jester they have ever made. I understand that even the contributions they previously gave to the needy during the holidays is greatly reduced. They made more than a billion dollars in profit in 2007, and like a shark smelling blood, are focused on improving that figure. This will be done at the cost of the employees.

    Cons

    If you are unlucky enough to be placed under an unfair or biased manager, you make be stuck there for many many years with no way to get out. Internal managers always ask current managers for their experience with an employee before consideration for promotion. If your current manager doesn't like you, he WILL make sure you are unable to leave his department. Since HR has been outsourced for the most part you have no source of help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some of the management courses you continue to force on others. Since most of MH senior management is hired externally, they have no previous knowledge or experience about MH policy, yet they are given any training in this respect.
    Also stop trying to make a name for yourself at the cost of your staff. Most likely you are new to MH, but your staff has had to prove themselves for years to every other 'new' sr. manager!

    Pros

    Co-workers are intelligent, job can be interesting. If you're retired or independently wealthy, the job could be fun for you.

    Cons

    Company is totally bottom-line oriented, everyone is a temp, compensation is not competitive, management is secretive. Don't expect to be rewarded for doing a good job. Your pay can and will be cut from project to project, regardless of performance. The company requires a Bachelor's degree to be an evaluator, yet the pay is on a par with what you would expect with a high school diploma.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, improve communications, restore pay cuts. Reward good performance with monetary incentives, not just praise.
