    I worked at MHN Government Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found it outstanding for the company to compensate me to complete my 400 hours required for a fellowship as a financial counselor. Otherwise, I would have been paying very expensive daycare expenses, while earning nothing at work. This company allowed me the ability to earn money, which more than helped to offset daycare expenses, and I was able to successfully complete my 400 practicum hours earning the Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC). I will always appreciate this company. It was a great company to work for.

    Cons

    I learned that working with a government contractor one must be flexible. When I say flexible, I mean about almost everything. For example, you may be hired with a certain compensation and benefit package, then after the contract is up the contractor, in order to beat all other bids being submitted to the government, may change your pay or other benefits, to obtain the contract. This never happened to me, but I saw it happen to others doing contract work in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    NA

    I worked at MHN Government Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    MHN Government services is a very organized and team oriented organization. I enjoyed the assignment of working directly with the school system. I also found the materials to be innovative and much needed for student and family success with handling deployments.

    Cons

    Flexibility for employee sick leave would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    My Supervisor was exceptional and very helpful, regular staff meetings aided in accountability and in program development. Enabling triage between clinicians in supporting events would interest more military family participation and promote more interest.

    I have been working at MHN Government Services (More than 3 years)

    The ability to serve our military members and their families is the biggest PRO there is. The mission of the company is clear. In addition, the opportunity of working along side truly top notch professionals cannot be replicated elsewhere.

    Cons

    As with all large companies the efficiency of communication can be improved.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at MHN Government Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the best companies that I have worked with, they are very proffessional and are very detailed bound and are great to lay down the job requirements.

    Cons

    There really is no cons on this company, they are straight upfront from the beginning, maybe the only cos are that they have to re-apply for government contracts every so many years

    Advice to Management

    Keep on applying for government contracts as I believe you are the best, you were a pleasure to work for and I hope to work with your company again.

    I worked at MHN Government Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people on the military bases were incredible; the soldiers, sailors and airmen and their families were wonderful to work with.
    It was great to work overseas.

    Cons

    During the time I worked as an MFLC, MHN changed. We went from being consultants, (with a reducing hourly wage in a time of inflation) to being employees, with no benefits, subpar accommodations, no per diem for CONUS jobs, etc.
    The team was sometimes great, sometimes not. The Team Leads were generally unsupportive of the people in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a fair compensation package
    Care about our military and your staff as much as you care about yourselves.
