Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The benefits are well laid out and you recieve good compensation

Cons

no diversity, all male white male run - it's like working for a 1960's republican convention

Advice to Management

Stop being so stuck up and firm and take the time to honestly consider your employees as human beings, not robots

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits package is really great, and once in the job security is decent. They also really do have alot offer in their work-life program.

    Cons

    The in-house communication is really lacking sometimes, but they know it and are trying to work on it.
    The companies move to out-source some aspects of our work does not seem to be a good idea to me. The problems it brings up more than out-weighs whatever cost saving there are.
    My only other real complaint is their never-ending use and lack of appreciation for Kelly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the Kelly employess who have shown their worth. It is unfair to them to keep them as temporary employees for years at a time. They can be hired as project status, and it would probably actually cost the company less.

    Pros

    Co-workers are good at what they do.

    Cons

    Senior management Grade levels 23 and above are more concerned with politics and lobbying for position than getting the job done. Seems that the senior management would prefer to increase their salaries and ensure their positions are secure than to really work on making things right for their investors.

    Every 6 months we see a reorganization happen and these reorgs don't happen because of the on-boarding of a new market, but to make the powers that be have a chance of hiding the fact that most of the management (senior) are ineffective.

    MHP spends money on projects that are just not needed for could be done cheaper someplace else. Customer service in NJ, analysts in NY, the new data center, staffing costs in NY, the use of union workers and the list goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of your ass and start doing your jobs. Listen to people who work there and get them to trust the company.

    Move most of the operations and infrastructure out of New York and New Jersey.
