Company was great, job wasn't.

Media Handler (Current Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

I have been working at Managed Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsYou get paid time off starting from your first day that you can use for anything. You get paid for holidays if you work them or not. The people are very nice and management will work with you.

ConsThe media handler position was a dead end. There was never going to be any raises and there was no chance for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more opportunities for the media handler position.

Micromanaged by people who care more about the client than the employees.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Commerce City, CO

I have been working at Managed Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsSalaries are pretty competitive here, but only by chance, not design.

ConsSmall company mentality, poor accounting department, and lack of employee focus

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more in touch with the contractors in the field, they are the ones making you money. Take care of them, maybe buy them lunch once in a while so they don't feel like "lone rangers" all the time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

IT positions

Data Center Inventory Specialist (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Managed Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsI have worked for MBS on two separate occasions, both contract assignments with HP. With both assignments, I worked alone. I had great support from my supervisor and the company.

ConsAs with any contracted position, the pay may not be at the level of permanent positions. Also due to being contracted, the positions range in length.

Fun company to work for

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

I worked at Managed Business Solutions full-time for less than a year

ProsThe people are great, owned by a good company in Sealaska

ConsAll of the software developers work remotely, totally hurts the capability of the team

Advice to Senior ManagementPut all of the software developers in a single physical location.

Meh

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Managed Business Solutions full-time

ProsDepends on if you work in the office or on site at a client. But there can be a laid back atmosphere, if you want to do more work you can, but that does not guarantee anything. I have seen worse. On a scale of 1 (Close Group) to 10 (Fighters), employees seem to be a 3 to 4.

ConsThey promise you advancement opportunity, but hire from outside. There is a large gap between the headquarters and what goes on with the company vs the rest of the employees. The benefits are lower than most places.

Advice to Senior ManagementTest out employees that are promised advancement. Instead of hiring people use your current employee on a short term or partial basis while reducing their current requirements. If it does not work out then you have details as to why. Explain those reason to the employee and perhaps they will improve. If it does, you have a long term employee that is more likely to be loyal due to a promotion.

great experience with good people willing to share and work together.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

I worked at Managed Business Solutions

ProsFlexible locations, almost everything for the job is homeoffice based with few visits to client locations. Ability to have flexible meeting locations when working on a project to collaborate ideas. Work life balance was great, they encouraged time off.

ConsIt's hard to know what projects are coming next that you would be able to work on. If a contract ends and you've got nothing else to do...you're job hunting. The did not promote from within, frequently would quickly go outside to hire new.

Opportunity to learn new technology was good.

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

I worked at Managed Business Solutions

ProsDepends upon who you work for. Most of management are clueless, and most of the Project Managers don't have realistic schedules.

ConsMiddle Management is bad, no feedback on good things only bad things.
Project Management is worse, no realistic schedules.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of yourselves.

Potential missed by poor sales team

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

If you don't know any better and really need a job

.NET Developer (Current Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

I have been working at Managed Business Solutions

ProsThis is a Native Alaskan owned company which helps it get projects with the Federal Government as a contractor.

ConsDisgustingly pathetic benefits! Quality employees won't come here and if they do they won't stick around when something better comes up.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are not a big time consulting firm so stop acting like one and start treating your employees with some respect
