Pros

The benefits package is really great, and once in the job security is decent. They also really do have alot offer in their work-life program.

Cons

The in-house communication is really lacking sometimes, but they know it and are trying to work on it.
The companies move to out-source some aspects of our work does not seem to be a good idea to me. The problems it brings up more than out-weighs whatever cost saving there are.
My only other real complaint is their never-ending use and lack of appreciation for Kelly employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire the Kelly employess who have shown their worth. It is unfair to them to keep them as temporary employees for years at a time. They can be hired as project status, and it would probably actually cost the company less.

    MHP needs new senior managers.

    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.

    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.
