    Pros

    The people, commission structure, hours, and flexibility.

    Cons

    There are seriously very few negative. It is not like the Tek Systems and Robert Halfs of the world that work you to the bone for a mediocre commission structure.

    I have been working at MDI IT Workforce Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A big pro used to be Richey Brownfield, the prior CEO. He is missed!
    As in any company, there are a treasure trove of special people who make it work, every day. Those folks are absolutely terrific.

    Cons

    Mediocrity and insular management (long, tenured) will continue to lead to stagnancy in thinking, in client and business development, and in providing superior account management.

    For such a small company (</= 80 nonbillable employees) the upper management is secretive with company planning and uninvolved in employee development. They seem to be on a constant hunt for the perfect sales tool or online training system that will eliminate the need for them to coach and build their employees directly - not that they do now, unless absolutely necessary.

    Their sales strategy is to create sales superstars by recruiting for pre-identified traits (not bad in and of itself). But their singular focus on the recognition and reward of their stars salespeople, to the striking neglect of slightly less succesful sales players and client interfacing operational folks, they have created a siloed business model, incapable of thinking laterally, and illequipped to adapt to the changing market place.

    Advice to Management

    Throw out your once a year anonymous employee surveys as the only means of soliciting employee feedback. Why? Because these are more likely pent-up complaints with forgotten particulars and little incentive for them to be constructive.
    If you aren't able to discuss concerns as they arise, in real time and face to face, employees will feel frustrated and resentful. By the time they take the anonymous survey they will have lost context, reason, or incentive to even help the company to change or improve. So, if your branch managers aren't having those conversations and resolving issues with their teams on a regular basis, then they are either overworked, underutilized, or untrained. As much as they are paid, this seems like a very expensive oversight!

    Good health benefits for their employees.

    Cons

    Where great careers go to die...

    Advice to Management

    Change your culture. Modify your business model to reflect 2017, not the 90's when you started. Times have changed. Keep up with the changes or you'll sink. Appreciated my time with you, but glad I moved on.
