I have been working at MS Companies as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

VERY EASY to get hired. Poor background is not a problem. When you get a chance to work it can be for different companies each day or week, the keeps things interesting.

Cons

LOW PAY, POOR MANAGEMENT, Will hire anybody. They will call you for a job and want you there in 10 min. if you can't make it they take you off of the call list. If work get slow a supervisor will take your job and send you home. They say somebody has to lose the hours and it isn't going to be them.

Advice to Management

Hire or promote people with true management skills, not just friends or family. Increase pay by increasing the quality of the employee pool. Other contract companies are doing just that and Aerotek is one of the largest because of the type of employees there hire.

    Pros

    It was ok. Good pay. Easy training. You get to go to many different companies. Good way to get your foot in the door at other places.

    Cons

    Not consistent work. You can go weeks without work. No set schedule. Blah blah blah I have to write twenty words.

    Advice to Management

    Too much favoritism.

    I have been working at MS Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    easy to get a job

    Cons

    inconsistent work assignments
    bad management
    uncaring culture that is passed down from corporate office
    uses workers for temporary assignments then lays them off and does same thing to new workers
    deceptive (does not tell associates they will be working for a day or two on IC side of business model)
    senior management does not know how to talk or interact with associates
    lots of decisions are made at a local level by a decision maker that is hundreds of miles away and has not consulted with the local leadership that is on the ground in the trenches, and when the decision made backfires the management team wants to hold the local leadership responsible.

    Advice to Management

    Make it mandatory that all leadership becomes well versed in Fournies' "Coaching for improved work performance"
    Make sure leadership have an actual background in being leaders. i.e. formal education and on the job knowledge
    Stop using workers because you focus on the new gig economy; realize your inspectors, team leaders and supervisors will make your company successful because they are the face of the company and interact with your customers on a daily basis (show them more gratitude)
