    I have been working at MacB as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    -A pay check
    -Ability to meet and befriend other contracting companies or Federal employees
    -Able to come in with LITTLE experience (?)
    -little supervision

    Cons

    Only been with the company for a little over a week and already seeing some issues.

    1) Company was JUST awarded their contract. They hired 4 brand new folks. They put the first project down in front of us and told us to make it happen. Our team was not given but one POC who is supposed to help with everything (but really doesn't have much of a clue), no tools, and no real guidance as to how to get the project completed. To top it off, new contracts are VERY cut throat. Anyone who can help you has already been told they're not allowed.

    2) Supervisor, recruiters, HR folks....they're all brand new also.

    3) Never see project lead or supervisors. Occasionally receive emails, but no face to face contact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to help new folks out. Don't throw them into the wolves without making sure they have everything they need...especially the basics like tools, PCs and POCs.

    I have been working at MacB as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job is rewarding and the military unit appreciates the CTR force.

    Cons

    The company as a whole cares nothing for its employees. They are truly in 'it' only for the money. Leadership from the top of the company to the first line supervisors, lacks any concern for the employee. They have levels of Analysts but the levels are basically meaningless.. A Level 1 analysts gets put in a supervisory role over a Level 2 or Level 3 analyst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure it out, under bidding by 25% on a contract just means your workers are going to suffer. When you have a work force of 156 people, starring down the very real possibility of unemployment in 3 months, sending them all an email saying how this VP is getting promoted etc, while no mention of what we are facing is poor form to say the least.

    I worked at MacB full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I found a better company that does not pay fast food or Wal Mart wages for specialized intelligence work.

    Cons

    Their business practices can turn a nation's prized intelligence gathering organization into a second rate facility, ultimately leaving people in the field vulnerable. The majority of employees that are sticking around have the bare minimum experience necessary or are stuck until they can properly manage their affairs and move on to a better company. The only rewards for exceeding the customer's standards are guaranteed pay cuts. Working at this location for MacB is not even worth the headache of maintaining a TS clearance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come back to the real world, your employees might still be there waiting for you.

    I worked at MacB full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, interview process, hiring existing workers when contract was initially awarded to the new company. Gift card for a Christmas bonus, paid vacation. Good benefit, take care of employees during family emergencies.

    Cons

    Training, pay raises, supervisor availability, promotion opportunity/selection process. My coworker was promoted when a supervisor was fired just to fill a spot. Seemed to be no consideration to who had more seniority/ deserved it or was more qualified. Instead possibly because of age or being a good ole boy, he was promoted for no valid reason, missed work frequently and was overwhelmed and slacked on his additional duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees more often.

    I worked at MacB full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part the people that I worked along side of were great. 8-5 job, if you left at 6P you were the last one out the door.

    Cons

    Don't expect any direction from management or supervisors. At best they will give you a gray answer so that nothing can come back to them. The amount of animosity between supervisors is ridiculous. Don't expect them to build teams. I listened to my department head bad mouth every person that had previously worked in that department that was no longer there. Very unprofessional.
