    I have been working at Mission Critical Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has weathered numerous downturns in the economy over 25 years and emerged stable and positioned for growth every time. This is a testament to the great quality staff.....many with 10 - 15 years of tenure and more. Many employees who have left to pursue advancement with competitors have come back.

    Cons

    Due to the small size and constant adjustments to the changing economic conditions there seems to be a constant state of growing pains. There also seems to always be more work than available hands necessary to get everything done optimally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More and clearer communications from senior management on the direction of the company and more line level decision making authority would help many of the day to day challenges.

    I worked at Mission Critical Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not much to say. Office culture at times was horrible due to a few individuals. Vacation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Make sure your starting salary is good as you will not get much else after.

    I have been working at Mission Critical Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I love the opportunity to grow, learn and be utilized in many different roles.

    Cons

    Office politics, combative personalities, scared, uneducated, uninformed and overpaid VP's make a bad working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the employees that aren't contributing. Many positions are redundant, while others are necessary and not being filled. Do not trust the "managers". Many times they are only interested in saving their own skin and increasing their bottom line. Promote from within and don't allow people from the outside to come in and command higher wages than the individuals who have been loyal to the company and have the companies best interest in mind.

    I worked at Mission Critical Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Experience with Timberline and government projects. Project management personnel were very cooperative. Had a good deal of government projects that assured stability

    Cons

    When problems were brought to managements attention they weren't even investigated. So you either play by there rules or you are let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly can't think of anything to say that I hadn't already said. Maybe it has changed over the years but while I was there I felt a sense of dishonesty that made me very uncomfortable.

    Pros

    The owner is a kind man.

    Cons

    The owner is generous to a fault. The executives will be his end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 95% of the upper management and the executive two faced bullies and the company will breath fresh air and while you are at it, clean out the complacent dead wood...

    I have been working at Mission Critical Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Talented, skilled and certified employees in their respective fields. Plenty of room for advancement. Above average compensation. Training opportunities are limited but if you excel and commit to a training path most of management will support you. Very hands on type of owner that truly does care for his employees. Phenomenal benefits package for permanent employees eg; generous 401k, 12 paid holidays just to name a few. Definitely a merit based company.

    Cons

    Senior management is very protective of their positions, a select few will literally not acknowledge a "lower level" employee even in good morning type of pleasantries. Multiple VP's for same positions which makes chain of command a little complex. One particular VP has been responsible for their extremely high turn over rate of well qualified personnel.
    Sales and Operations seems to have a tick more separation and dissention than normal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust the privileged VP's mindset. Close the gap between grossly over paid and grossly underpaid for the same positions. Longevity should only hold a few perks. Flush out the legacy people that aren't earning their paychecks.
