    Pros

    If you are a contractor working for the government, MIL will make sure that you have everything you need. Their staff are very attentive and responsive to any issues you may have. They give good raises (based on performance reviews) and paid really well. Compensation was generous.

    Cons

    There isn't much to say. I did not use their health benefits, but from what I heard from others, they could have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at The MIL Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was able to move up easily within the company and they paid very well. Pretty good health benefits as well.

    Cons

    Had a very lame 401k plan (only matched 50% of a maximum 4%, so 2% total match). The had several management issues understanding CA law as they are mainly an East coast company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the laws on the west coast (especially for CA as it always has 'particular' guidelines). Improve your 401k plans for employees.

    Terrible.

    Pros

    I enjoyed meeting some of the people that worked for the company--good people but they got lost in the storm of poor management.

    Cons

    Management did not even remotely understand the business or the needs of the customer. They tried to manage from across the country, and it was rare that we got to interact with them.

    I have been working at The MIL Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The MIL Corporation really cares about their people and tries hard to keep employees happy and growing in their careers. Government contracting can be frustrating and the MIL mgmt. team does a great job buffering their employees from this client-created frustration. Any negative reviews for this organization in Charleston are non-factual. MIL has ok health benefits but great perks for training and personal development.

    Cons

    There are some limitations in the efficiency of how the corporate office (MD) disseminates policy to field offices, like Charleston. Health benefits could be more competitive for the industry but they are still pretty good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider subsidizing health benefits to be more competitive. Work on facilitating ideas and feedback from lower levels of the organization.

    Pros

    CMM level 2 with some business processes defined corporately.

    Cons

    Political corporate control by lack of executive and management communications. Stakeholder and client decisions limited by communication lapses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring the theoretical thinkers and put energy into performance of staff and client solutions.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay for the area

    Cons

    There are no opportunities to advance with this company. You will be placed in a desk, left there with no training and handed menial busy work so that they can bill the government. Management is often inexperienced and unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp your front line managers. Do not hire people for jobs they aren't qualified for. Do not hire people for jobs that don't have enough work.

    I have been working at The MIL Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable hours and not much overtime expected because of contract. Benefits are standard, but nothing above and beyond what other companies offer. They seem to hire pretty good employees overall, but then they don't seem to know what to do with them after they have them. Look for a long established team not one of the ones only in place for a few years.

    Cons

    Big communication problems dependent on what team you are on. Check carefully before accepting position. Extremely high turnover on certain teams with employees jumping ship. If you have a bad or unclear vibe from the beginning, your gut is probably right. When it comes down to it, individual manager ethics are very questionable and it will be every man for himself. Not a good situation when working in sensitive areas of government. Pay is not anything to write home about either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More care on who is being placed in senior management. Good communication, leadership and clear direction are more important than talking a good game...especially when the bottom is falling out.
