I have been working at MacDonald-Bedford, LLC part-time (More than 8 years)
13 year SDVOSB based in Alameda, CA (East SF Bay) with offices in San Diego, CA, Jacksonville, FL, NYC, NY, and sub-offices in Washington, DC, Denver, CO and Virginia Beach, VA. Pay and benefits are far above engineer-industry standards, including first-class Medical and Dental plans and a 4% 401k match program. MacDonald-Bedford (M-B) Management challenges and encourages all employees to execute a fantastic wellness plan and work-life balance, while implementing Individual Development Plans. The HQ, M-B Staff are professional, knowledgeable and provide timely and complete service and support. I've known the Owner/President for 30+ years. He demands loyalty, a full-days work and respect. In return, he provides a fair and professional employment climate, and a high level of pay and compensation. MacDonald-Bedford is a GREAT place to work.
As with all Small Businesses, resources are limited. However, this is transparent to field employees as the Owner attempts to meet annually, at the employee's work location, with every employee throughout the USA.
Advice to Management
Maintain course! Continue to require/challenge Team M-B to: BE LOYAL, PUT OTHERS BEFORE YOURSELF, BE REFLECTIVE, BE OBSESSIVELY ORGANIZED, ASSUME YOU DON'T KNOW ENOUGH, BE DETAIL-ORIENTED and NEVER GET COMFORTABLE.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MacDonald-Bedford, LLC.
I found the posting on Craig's List and was contacted a day later to set up a phone interview as Mr. Bedford was traveling. We had a very nice phone conversation discussing the position traits but also a large portion was talking about both of our time in the service. It was more of a conversation than an interview and I was put at ease.
I was very pleased with my offer.
