    I have been working at Michaelson, Connor, & Boul full-time

    Pros

    Very fun, kind and welcoming coworkers. I feel recognized for my accomplishments and I have gained great experience to build my career on. The company is also pretty flexible when it comes to work schedules and is accommodating in family emergency situations.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of upward movement opportunities at the company, so if you are looking to move into management you will have to wait a while to have the opportunity to do so. Most of the staff has been here for a very long time and do not have plans to leave, which leaves very few open positions to fill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see more community activities for employees to participate in.

    Pros

    The owners are wonderful people
    If you are related or connected to management outside of the company this is a great place for advancement.

    Cons

    Negative Environment.
    If you aren't related or connected to senior management and take a position get the office experience and use it to find a better job.
    Excessive amount of staff from temp services entrusted with confidential personal information of clients. (If I was a client and knew this I would not want my sensitive information entrusted to this company)
    Had an annual mandatory IT Security Compliance Course. Yet it was common practice in the company to violate the same practices that the course instructed us against. This went all the way up to management as well as some senior management. This along with many other holes in the security of IT and sensitive data.
    Work/Life Balance is only balanced if you don't get bullied in to giving up your weekends
    Current Skilled Employees were often told there was no budget for raises while new entry level hires often were offered a higher starting pay than the current employees were earning at that time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Owners... (Owners were great but unfortunately not as in touch with what happened on the work floor) Look at your managers as much or more than the average employee. When I was there many of the problems started with management

    Pros

    they had pretty good Benefits and working with nice people was a nice plus. The ability to work independently and create better ways of doing things in the office.

    Cons

    The commute was too long. They were unfair to some of the employees. Did not give any reviews and bonuses that were needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To recognize and award employees who did a good job for the company. To give back to the employees some of the profit the company made. Give raises or bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management who knows what they're doing and understands the concept of communicating differently with each individual. Maybe, do a more thorough interviewing process when hiring employees and train them after hiring.
