    Pros

    Good people to work with and for. Good pay and great benefits! Company retreat was good too.

    Cons

    Not a lot to complain about. Mid management sometimes can sometimes forget who works for them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Don't try to cut corners on your benefits or you're going to lose some good people.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Good location.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. When one employee in your department leaves, management does not want to replace, but rather spread the work within the department. Everyone is spread so thin, you start to hate your job for being over worked and not appreciated.

    I worked at MBP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MBP has an excellent on-boarding process. Their HR group is engaged and "hip" despite the fact they advertise one salary and then make the offer at a seriously reduced rate. The process is a good one and a candidate gets to meet a lot of people during the interview process. That helps with red flags, meaning that the candidate can see if there may be a "problem" working with an MBP employee.

    Cons

    The internal politics are pretty disruptive. There are people in management positions that shouldn't be in them. The marketing department is in disarray. The growth plan is 15 years behind-the-times. MBP is one of these firms that has sort of "succeeded" despite its dysfunction. Fairly typical of firms such as these. It's overall dysfunction is catching up with it.

    Advice to Management

    Management at headquarters needs a thorough and complete housecleaning. Some need to retire and some need to go do something else. Interpersonal and intra-personnel relationships at high levels need to be scrutinized closely. These relationships cause overall friction among employees and thwart company growth.
