    I worked at MSLGROUP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The majority of people at MSL are great at what they do and keep the place chugging along.

    Benefits are pretty good. Lots of days off & vacation/sick leave/personal days.

    Flexible work from home policy and as long as you get your work done they do not really watch the clock.

    Cons

    Raise/promotion cycles are inconsistent.

    Many rounds of layoffs so people do not feel job security.

    US senior management/new business need a shake up.

    I have been working at MSLGROUP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New office is under construction
    People are generally nice

    Cons

    - Recently laid off numerous employees, have made morale extremely low.
    - Almost everyone looking to get out. I imagine most gone by Christmas.
    - Lack of transparency and when there is, no one trusts mgmt anyways.

    Advice to Management

    If here, get out. If applying, look elsewhere. This appears to be a sinking ship. I'd advise mgmt to be clear and decisive while keeping the office informed. Gossip and distrust are spoiling this office. Need a restart in just about every part of the company. Good luck to you.

    Pros

    Precious few good folks in the mix. They all want to leave.

    Cons

    Full of petty, insecure people. Terrible management. Unprofessional behavior rampant. The people who work here aren’t talented enough to justify their arrogance. Losing employees left and right.

    Advice to Management

    If this isn’t the culture you believe in, have the guts to fix it.

    Open office space makes it tough to concentrate (but the open environment could also be a pro!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on keeping your team happy in addition to clients
