    It was a mixed bag.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThrough working at MLT, you meet and gain access to many business leaders at top companies in the United States.

    ConsThere were always lots of organizational changes, especially in leadership. Employees did not feel rewarded, satisfied or fairly compensated for the work done. Opinions and ideas of rank and file team members were not valued.

    Great Mission, Horrifying Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsMLT brings together truly interesting and motivated young people who are dedicated to creating a true culture of inclusion in corporate America. An important community of minority leaders in the making.

    ConsMLT is an incredibly poorly run organization. Putting to the side the irony that none of the senior leadership includes minorities (except for John Rice), MLT has serious problems with staffing and turnover, problems that are readily explained. MLT hires incredibly competent people and then simultaneously overworks them while making it clear to them that they cannot be trusted to do their jobs. Every work experience was laced with unnecessary micromanagement. Intelligence and creativity were devalued as a central management tenet. Hierarchy at the organization is established for the sake of having hierarchy, not for advancing the mission of the organization. The organization itself was basically run in absentia, and yet no decisions could be made by the individuals who were "in the trenches" and most acquainted with the needs of their respective MLT populations. The general vibe of undeserved organizational self-aggrandizement was at once shocking and comical, and the utter disregard of staff and their important contributions was disturbing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the power of an engaged and intelligent staff. Appreciate that the goals of the organization should apply to the organization as well. Allow staff to do the jobs you hired them for. Hire an Executive Director to actually run the organization.

    Loved the mission and impact made. Leadership and employee empowerment lacking. Egotistical senior leader.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAmazing mission. Able to impact lives. Provides access to great opportunities for its program participants. Program participants build great networks and feel sense of community. Wonderful access to individual, personalized coaching. Excellent opportunity for those who use the company's services and programs. Provides a relevant and much needed service.

    ConsPoorly run organization. No investment in staff, training, or technology. Worse treatment than Corporate America for minorities. Gives you a good sense of what working on a plantation must have been like. Rapid turnover. Shameless in self aggrandizement. Don't drink the kool-aid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your staff like professionals and value their contributions and opinions. Live true to your mission and invest in developing your people. Pay your people market rates. Figure out the direction you're going and craft a clear strategy around it. Hire a management team that has people skills and know how to manage/run a business.
