    I worked at Mancon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They are very good for hours and work-life balance
    M-F work week
    Paid holidays
    Paid health insurance for employee (this is a biggie today)
    Great co-workers
    Paid vacation
    Was allowed to make a lot of decisions on my own within policies.procedures as to how to implement them

    Cons

    I did not work at corporate but on a military base but in 8 years I left only $1.63 higher than what I started at
    As in most companies today communication between management & other employees could use a bit of improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please communicate better with all employees especially when there is a procedure or policy change
    Corporate please allow more decision making at management level of the satellite operations. Purchasing does not reflect what is needed in these other locations

    Pros

    Never a Dull Moment, Great teamwork, New contracts, New Challenges, Very Fair Management, Awesome Benefits, Opportunity to learn new fields and advance when available.

    Government spending will put a strain on volume of work. Areas of improvement take a long time to implement. (typically big ticket items) Employee accountability needs to be enforced.

    Communicate, and keep up the good work

    I worked at Mancon as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is on-time. Easy to communicate with HQ. Dedicated co-wprkers.

    Cons

    Minimum pay for maximum effort. Cut our pay when they took over federal contract. Pay and stress level do not equate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more than $12hr. Also, don't make employees who were working under another contractor wait a year before they can get full benefits with you.

    Former Employee - Q/A for Another Contact, Working With Mancon in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Mancon as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    All employees are trying to find work and get out of this company.

    Cons

    They have many employees after them legally. They are not a stand up company
    They do not stand behind their own written policies in the employee handbook .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your company and not the $ it is making. Be involved with your employees.
    Stand beside the people that work for you.

    I worked at Mancon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    100% benefits pay for employees. Higher than Average wage (Don't be fooled-it's not worth it)

    Cons

    Upper Management makes up the rules as they go. If you're good at brown nosing - go for it - if not, watch out! Please get everything in writing as management changes polices without batting an eyelash - of course to their benefit. There is no employee handbook because things change so fast, they would always be creating a new one. If you question policy, you are out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. Don't cheat the employee. Don't act as a bully.

    Former Employee - Analyst  in  Washington, DC

    I worked at Mancon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Highly autonomous and no yearly reviews, means you can do anything you want and have no reprecussions-great employer for those looking to slack off and not move up.

    All employees are hourly employees. Overtime pay = time and a half, however employees are often banned from submitting overtime hours during "financial cut backs"

    Cons

    Management sexually harassed multiple female employees for 2 years, employees reached out to higher ups asking for HR contacts, were told there were no HR representatives on staff and there was nothing they could do about it. (This was a lie, employees later found out there are 2 HR representatives on staff) Took 2 years of abuse to rid the company of the harrassers. There is no employee handbook so corporate office is able to make up rules at-will. Examples of made up rules include unscheduled leave during government office OMB closures: during snowmeggedon in DC when the government was closed for 8 days in 2010 and contractors were unable to work, Mancon forced employees to use their vacation days. If an employee did not have enough vacation days, they were forced to make it up during overtime. Employees earn vacation days extremely slowly, it takes a full year of work to earn 10 vacation days. There are no sick days, you must use your vacation days. Weird accounting system. Employees MUST work a full 8 hr day each week, even if you work 9-10 hr days during the rest of the week and amass the normal 40+ hr workweek, but worked a 7 hr day, you must use 1 hr of vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an employee handbook! Manage your staff. Cut the cancer.

    I worked at Mancon

    Pros

    Benefits are 100% company paid, wage is above average for region.

    Cons

    Management at all levels is totally incompetent. Company is still in the paper age...not tech savvy at all. Make sure all discussions with management are in writing as they have a problem with being truthful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be truthful when hiring someone and gain management skills.
