    Pros

    New leadership ship team empowers staff to work more autonomously and take full ownership of their projects.
    No one micro-managing. Most employees want to do a great job and are proud of the work they do.
    There's great mix of in-house and remote employees.
    Ability to flex resources up and down as necessary to meet workloads and client needs.
    Fully committed to delivering best in class services to the publishing community.
    Onshore and offshore teams have good rapport and support each other.
    Teams are experienced and talented.
    Management listens and works to support employees by implementing changes whenever possible.
    Employees support each other by helping each other out and sharing client and project experiences.
    Senior management talks openly about their committed to growing the business and they encourage new ideas.

    Cons

    None! I'm very happy working with MPS. Employees who feel they are deserving of more need to understand that the more you give and go above and beyond, the more likely you are to be recognized -- sometimes it just takes time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Continue to listen and support employees at all levels.

    I worked at MPS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After working at MPS for about a year, I now feel confident that nothing going forward can be as horrible as my experience at this company. Despite the baggage I now carry from the emotional trauma that MPS inflicted, I am still confident that future professional endeavors can only be more positive than my experience here. I was right in feeling that the stress of being unemployed does not outweigh the stress, anxiety, frustration, and utter depression I developed and experienced daily in my position with MPS.

    Cons

    - Typical company systems/conventions DO NOT exist- ie, no: HR department, company or employee handbook, summary of job duties or description.
    - ZERO training provided upon first-hire or during ANY stage of receiving new projects.
    - You WILL be grossly underpaid given the excessive amount of work you will do outside the job description for your position.
    - You WILL work 60+ hours per week without any additional compensation and be told that doing so is a temporary "season of work" and that "things will get better." (Note: they will not).
    - Management, at all levels, does not only undervalue and ignore employee ideas, experience, and questions but actively works to stifle, silence, and undermine individual contribution.
    - Management will micromanage your every thought, action, and bodily function to the point that all your emails will need to be screened and approved as if you were learning to use words for the very first time.
    - There are no employee reviews, goal setting opportunities, or room for growth/progress.
    - You will be condescended toward about your lack of knowledge given your professional background, openly corrected in front of coworkers when you challenge an idea or don't understand a convention, encouraged to ask questions but reprimanded when you do, and expected to constantly explain your position and daily duties to all levels of management who want to control your every move but don't understand what your job entails.

    Advice to Management

    - Spend time training your employees.
    - Learn to trust the experience and skills possessed by the people you decide to hire.
    - Create, define, and uphold clear goals and expectations for your employees to strive toward accomplishing.
    - Provide some measure of actual support toward achieving those goals, apart from offering platitudes about how you hope to help your employees reach success and growth.
