    I worked at MSB full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are great people and great managers still there.

    Cons

    With the constant stream of new senior management coming in, the only thing you can count on is change. Change is not inherently bad or good---but constant change with moving goal posts lead to frustrated clients and staff.

    Lots of talented managers and staff have left as a result.

    Compensation is on the low end, but not dramatically so.

    Overall the office atmosphere is tense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you like to protect your territory but clients don't really care about your political agendas.

    Pros

    Basically the place hires good folks that just want to get along and do good work. Weekends are sacrosanct.

    Cons

    Management exemplifies the current trend of plutocratic hobbling of the common worker. Critical thinking and a literate employees have become dangerous to those in management who want to celebrate orthodoxy over dialogue, emotion over reason and ideological certainty over thoughtfulness. Middle management adopt this attitude and enforce conformity. As a result, the product is becoming an emperor with no clothes, and good employees do not last long in this toxic environment. Wages are not keeping up with living costs, yet workers fear losing their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None required, they will not listen anyway.

    I have been working at MSB

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Flexibility. Small company with team-focused approach.

    Cons

    Knowledge of the underlying problems is ignored. Only the symptoms are addressed. Management does not understand what employees jobs truly consist of and as a result, things are constantly in state of flux,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sustain from the bottom up, not Sales and New Products down.

    Pros

    The company in many areas allows for individual growth. Goals are set and the whole company is then tasked to fulfill those goals as a team. Teamwork is emphasized.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is some areas of the company is rampant. There is a lack of trust by some department leaders of the individual employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Senior Management should get out of the day to day lives of the employees. The mid level managers need to trust their employees to do their jobs. Don't ask us about them on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Recently hired people are of a high quality. New management is superior to the old group that was there before.

    Cons

    Salary; few raises, only given to people who were part of a "favored group" although this may be changing with new management. Lots of siloing where information is not shared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very reactive instead of proactive right now. This makes for a poor environment. Management needs to recognize the people in the trenches who actually do the work, not just people in offices.
