    I worked at MZ Berger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Ownership of projects, opportunity to innovate

    Cons

    No cons unless the individual looking for a job considers days off as the best part of the work--you have to be into what you do or you shouldn't work at MZB.

    Gaps in strict control are actually opportunities to stretch and grow Vision and Accomplishment awards are regularly handed out: It's called a pay check

    Nobody is going to tell you where the key is on your keyboard, if that's the level of support you need or desire

    I worked at MZ Berger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of paid time off, independence, structure, management open door policy. Your peers are a group of professionals and great human beings.

    Cons

    This is a con that leads to your own growth. It is a tough environment, but if you have the drive, you will succeed. This is not a 9 to 5 experience, only those who take their role seriously and have passion for what they do will do well here.

    I worked at MZ Berger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tons of Jewish holidays, hard working coworkers, lots of desk spaces. Tons of kids licenses to work with if you’re looking to build a portfolio.

    Cons

    The company is getting sold piece by piece. There’s no future in this company. Huge office space but practically a ghost town. The health insurance is very pricey and useless.
