I worked at Mfg.com

Pros

Great vibe, Great Team, Very flexible, and very causal. All things considered this is a very good company to work for.

Cons

Performance is king and people work hard to hit their numbers. You must be prepared to do the same. There is very little tolerance for slackers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More focus always helps, but generally they are on the right track. I liked the way the company was managed.

    Disappointed to see such a good business idea wasted

    I worked at Mfg.com

    Pros

    As stated in other reviews, MFG.com has a very relaxed and fun work environment. The benefits package is quite good, but that is where the pros stop.

    In it's heyday of "free spending" ways there were some international travel opportunities available to select people, but with revenues plummeting this is no longer an option.

    Cons

    MFG.com has an unsustainable business model. They have been hemorrhaging money since the day they were founded and have never managed to be profitable. The opportunities for growth are non-existent and career planning is never considered.

    The compensation is sub-par because MFG.com tries to milk every worker for 150% while paying next to nothing. There are no raises to speak of, and no programs to reward above and beyond achievement.

    "Communication" hardly describes the interaction between management and the employees. "Deception" or "Deflection" are more appropriate words for how the management deals with information about the company.

    The management just does not have the right skill set to support that organization, and employees often wonder whether the board of directors is too distracted to see this or if they just don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the business model. Care about your employees. Those two simple tenants could turn your business around.

    By providing actual value to your customers rather than having your sales team bully people into contracts you will build a strong customer base that will continue to pay you for the value they receive. No value = no revenue, plain and simple.

    By showing no respect for the workers who make up the backbone of your organization you discourage them from going above and beyond and turn them into 9-to-5 clock punchers. You have proven in the past that you will stab anyone in the back for a dollar and you have a lot of work to do in order to turn that image around.

    Pros

    There is nothing more interesting out there. International travel, 4% matching on 401ks with 100% vesting day one, very casual.

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good wotk
