Macro Solutions – Why Work For Us?

Government service starts with a single touch point. 

A connection; a promise; a small, personal moment that builds and ripples outward- from the citizen, up. Now imagine a company that's built the same way...

Macro Solutions is a woman-owned Information Technology and management consulting firm that helps companies and government organizations select, implement, integrate and maintain critical end-to-end business solutions. Assessed at CMMI Maturity Level 3 for both Development and Services, ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management Systems and ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management Systems certifications, Macro Solutions delivers honest, powerful results from the inside, outward.

How do we achieve an impressive 94% consultant retention rate in an industry often associated with transient employees? One relationship at a time. 

At Macro Solutions, we believe personal attention for employees directly translates to personal attention for clients. That's why we are deeply invested in advancing long lasting employee relationships. 

We created Consultant Care, a distinctive program in which an executive member of our corporate staff acts as a dedicated employee advocate, responsible for staying in close, regular contact with each employee. 

Project status, salary, training, even commute times or any other concerns are regularly discussed. Conversations are held in a relaxed, congenial way with a staunch advocate, who is outside of the formal client team structure. Consultants are placed on projects that set them up for maximum ongoing success and are quickly transitioned to other teams when situations call for it. 

Consultant Care is a priority at every level of the company, all the way up to our CEO and COO, engaged weekly to review employee satisfaction and client feedback reports. 

It's a true win-win proposition: Employees stay connected to Macro Solutions values and receive the support they need to do their best work. You receive more productive, engaged employees.

I would like to thank those of you who have written a review of Macro Solutions on our Glassdoor page. I am grateful that you have taken the time to share your honest thoughts, opinions and suggestions about Macro. I strive daily to make Macro an employer of choice and foster a culture where relationships matter. Macro would not be where it is today without each one of you working hard and bringing your energy, dedication and innovation every day.

I value the feedback you have provided and the insight, comments and suggestions have been invaluable. At our core, Macro Solutions is a relationship company. I want you to know that we have heard you and will continue to be a company that invests in its people and will work hard to ensure that our employees have the tools they need to be successful. 

For those of you who are considering a career at Macro Solutions, we continue to grow, serve our customers, and move forward with several initiatives that will set us up for continued success, and we hope that you will decide to join us on the journey. 

At Macro Solutions, we take great pride in the tremendous corporate culture we have developed since our founding, over 15 years ago. However, as a rapidly growing company based in a large Metropolitan area, we are aware that we are not an island. As such, we have launched a corporate philanthropic initative called "Macro Community," to serve as a vehicle through which our employees, partners and friends can contribute their time and resources to their favorite casues. 

We feel so strongly about supporting local and national organizations that are providing invaluable societal roles, that we have developed a "Giving Time Policy" that allows our employees to support volunteer activities that enhance and serve the communities in which we live and work. Employees can volunteer up to eight (8) hours per calendar year with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit or its U.S equivalent in accordance with Macro Solutions’ giving and volunteering guidelines.

The intention of this program is to create community engagement opportunities for Macro Solutions employees that are meaningful, purposeful and helps those in need. At the same time, Macro Solutions recognizes that participating in these activities will also enrich and inspire the lives of our employees. “Community” is not defined as just local community, but may encompass a global perspective.

In time, we believe that Macro Community will provide us (and you) the opportunity to build a reputation as a trusted and valued partner within our own communities. 

At Macro Solutions, our core values set the tone for our work environment and culture as well as the way we do business every day. Macro Solutions' values are a product of our small business roots and our "agile" approach to getting things done efficiently and effectively. 

We thrive off a high touch environment and egoless culture that emphasizes the value of relationships and delivering the promises we make. We hire new team members and approach all our customer and partner relationships with these values in mind.

  • Open door policy and access to company executives 
  • Regular meetings with executives and customers to discuss expectations and performance

Work Hard, Play Hard 

Work/life balance is something we take seriously. Since most of our employees are at clients sites during the week, where they are focused on working hard, we want to provide them with opportunities to play hard.

    I worked at Macro Solutions full-time


    Great opportunities. Great HR and Management teams.
    Management supported me well when contract was abruptly ended as funding was cut.


    As a consultant, you may not have many opportunities to connect with other MSOL employees.

    Advice to Management

    Arrange more activities to connect internal employees on different contracts with different clients.

    Sr. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macro Solutions (Arlington, VA) in March 2018.


    Chaotic recruiter scheduled phone screen and interview and provided details in advance. Upon attending the in person interview, entirely different people were present unannounced with no advance notice. The meeting was rushed, apparently shoe-horned in between other meetings. After the interview, I followed up but the recruiter did not respond. A very, very unprofessional experience with this company. I strongly recommend applicants think twice before committing to negotiations with this company.
