    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for the media handler position.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be 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.

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    As 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.

    I worked at Managed Business Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put all of the software developers in a single physical location.

    I worked at Managed Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Depends 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.

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Test 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.

    I worked at Managed Business Solutions

    Pros

    Flexible 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.

    Cons

    It'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.

    I worked at Managed Business Solutions

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of yourselves.

    Invest more to gain more
