    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Top notch salary, concierge service, bosses seem to care about their employees. Quarterly wellness spas at the office! The cookouts were amazing. Benefits were the best I have ever had. I would go back to work for them in a second.

    Cons

    They sold our division. I had to go work for Lockheed Martin. Even though they sold us, they did do their best to make sure we were taken care of by the new company and did everything they could to make the transition easy.

    Advice to Management

    They seem to know what they are doing.

    Thanks for your wonderful post, especially 18 months after the divestiture. It was very important to the MFC leaders to ensure the employees in the divested division were taken care of. It was so ... More

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment with a young vibe. Good benefits and above market compensation. Tries to be different. Easily accessible office location in Tyson's corner.

    Cons

    The firm does not set you up for success, but throws you in to billable projects with no alignment to your background and experience. The firm over sells on projects, and expects the available resources to figure it out, even if they aren't the right resources. The firm sold me on work life balance, than had me placed on a project requiring travel 5 nights a week and 11 billable hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest during interviews about what work life balance means to MFC. It's ok to throw your consultants in, but set them up to succeed.

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Small business with the latitude to work across multiple business groups and accounts which offers experience that is not readily available in a large company. There are pillars of excellence led by very talented and motivated professionals in leading business performance for clients.

    Cons

    Company is led by a group of long time friends which at times are not motivated to inspire and offer opportunity to motivated employees to do more. Potential for unfair and not equal employment practices; corporate values and culture are other than what senior management live by. An "open door" policy is openly offered by corporate management, but found this to be less than advertised with potential for reprisal.

    Advice to Management

    In the past MFC had been an up and coming small business, probably about time to sell the other side of the business before all the good people leave.

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small group of 4 people in the West Chicago Office. They were all friendly and very relaxed.

    Cons

    Was hired for my iDirect/Satellite tech experience but ended up cleaning the building, installing new carpet and desks in a very large room. They also wanted me to fabricate new structures on their vehicles and were not willing to actually teach me how. Lack of any real management or training.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire someone for the TECH experience and then have them become a carpenter, janitor, and a fabricator and unwilling to train them in those fields. I lost a lot of money moving to the area only to be let go after 2 months without an explanation.

    Pros

    They do have a lot of company sponsored happy hours and their PTO is decent. Commercial side seems to have better projects and more competent leadership.

    Cons

    Training is hard to come by. I wanted to take a proposal writing course from outside vendor and was told the firm was going to offer something. I never saw any firm wide training offered for proposals during my tenure. Also, the federal sector doesn't have a ton of projects to chose from. Directors in the federal space are conniving and blatantly take credit for business develop activities they don't do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep you directors in check. Find out who really does what on your contracts. Show up on customer site and talk to the clients! Stop bringing 'BIG 4' practices to the firm. Don't say we offer a work life balance and then punish your employees during review time for not doing enough for the firm! It's not fair to compare a person who is highly billable and does what they can for proposals to someone who has a lot of down time during the year to work on proposals and other firm activities. Of course that person that isn't billable can spend more of their time working on proposals. They aren't generating any revenue!!

    Benefits are not too bad

    Cons

    This company was great when I first started however in the last year it has started to tank. Horrible Management Federal side has employees who are too comfortable and refuse to increase the quality of work for the client (even though it is required by contract) Quality of work is sub par

    Hire employees who are earger to work hard

    Pros

    People: consultants and line staff were talented Company Spirit: Very strong company spirit and great events to make everyone feel like they were part of something greater

    Cons

    Leadership: The management was extremely bloated. The senior management to staff ratio was very low. There were several abusive managers who were not held in check by the executives or HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the large number of Directors and Senior Managers.

    Company promotes health and wellness

    Cons

    Sexist workplace, Firm sells work life balance but does not support it when you ask for it, Make a mistake and it follows you for the rest of your career, Raises are crap so negotiate your base salary, Managers hoard information and do not help you do your job well, Managers are incompetent to help you grow, Very few career growth opportunities, Very very high turnover rate because work and managers suck, Employees with CPAs and technical competence are not valued, Technical competence does not matter for promotions, Only Business development matters for promotion, Review process is a joke, Managers don't provide regular reviews and hope that you forget about them

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees concerns, Match what you sold to them, Hire and promote competent managers
