    Pros

    Lots of Responsibility, small team. Also love the office cultures because there is only about 30 people, so you get to know everyone pretty well.

    Cons

    Slightly repetitive so it got boring during earnings season because you do the same thing on a daily basis. Lots of turnover amongst employees on the consulting side because of the massive changes that are taking place since it is a growing company.

  2. Fast-paced but fun

    Pros

    Pros – The most focus on really evaluating outcomes and the "big picture" of any evaluation firm / department I have worked for. Interesting and innovative projects being developed. High caliber staff. Can learn a lot from the new Principals that come from very different backgrounds.

    Cons

    Cons – Organization experiencing some transition issues as it grows and a lack of certainty around the future is felt at mid level posts, which can be difficult. This seems like normal "growing pains" to me though. I wouldn't advise working here if you like clear, documented procedures, but it can be a great place to innovate.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with mid level staff

    Pros

    The company is full of young, enthusiastic and very bright employees. Projects are managed in small teams, and there is plenty of opportunity to contribute to the development and direction of an engagement. An innovative idea, tool, or solution has a good chance of making a big impact on a client's operations if it is well developed. The new principles also seem to be making a lot of progress with internal management. The firm is positioned to make very real contributions to clients, and the fields of social impact strategy and performance assessment - as well as very real gains in the market.

    Cons

    The company sabotaged itself in the past year, repeatedly. Management would too often ignore intelligent input from lower employees, or go over their heads in managing a client engagement, often with a cost to client relationships and internal morale. The firm also saw enormous staff turnover at all levels, but the new teams seem be more stable. It is difficult to anticipate who has the authority to make or approve decisions. MM has struggled with all of the hurdles of transitioning to a mid-size firm.

    Advice to Management

    - Trust your mid-level employees to take the reigns more often, and enable them. They are the usually the most familiar with the client;
    - Give the new principles space to manage their teams, and the support to do it well;
    - Make processes for strategic decisions more transparent and take feedback from your technical staff seriously;
    - Decide on a set of common services and products and focus on doing them really, really well. The firm seems to get ahead of itself with exciting, ever-more-innovative models, but its just as important to have a foundation of reliable services with which to attract business.

    Pros

    MM has some very smart and committed employees with impressive backgrounds that span the private and non-profit sectors. The firm has attracted some brand-name clients in the past.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of staff departures from MM in the last six months as a result of changes in leadership and general instability. Job seekers beware! The firm made layoffs in March, and many others left of their own accord - even the co-founder! There is a lot of unhappiness and confusion among remaining employees. I think the future of MM is uncertain at best; previous glowing review was likely written by new management trying to gloss over recent events. See reviews on indeed dot com also.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
