    I have been working at MacB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's been a while since I've been with a company that still provides decent affordable benefits, and pay. While the world may have changed from 10 years ago, MacB still keeps a strong outlook in the work they perform and the employees they are committed to.

    Cons

    No downside yet! Management is open to discuss concerns.

    Pros

    The administrative functions were pretty easy, much simpler than with former DoD contracts I worked on. Salary was reasonable, and separation at the end of contract amicable.

    Cons

    The management and team leads were unwelcoming. A lot of miscommunication (I even found out I accepted the position from a government lead before I ever got a call from the company). Being rolled in from another contract, I was always an "outsider" and asked not to attend meeting - even those where I was a key presenter and it looked bad to the govt client. The team I worked with was very uncooperative with providing information that the client required. In my opinion, the resistance and micromanagement is what lost the contract.

    I have been working at MacB full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good HR interaction. Easy/quick timecard system. Matches some 401k (Fidelity). Management is receptive to my team's needs - when they can.

    Though we have not received raises every single year, they have not cut salaries either, like so many in the DoD have done in recent years. No complaints - yet.

    Would like to stay with the company in the future even if I need to change sites.

    Someone gave a lower rating for the DoD stability? That's not the company's fault, don't knock 'em for it.

    They continue to fight to keep health costs down. I know it's quite difficult these days.

    Cons

    A slightly higher 401k might be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Remember, in some fields constant personnel training will be required since most customer's don't cover those costs. Keep your teams well trained in the technical fields where budget allows. It'll pay off in the long run.

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

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with at MacB was extremely responsive and encouraging. I really loved working for MacB and had a great bond with my boss, Gary Waggoner! I was very sad to say goodbye when I moved from Dayton to Boulder. The hours were fair and the compensation was top notch for the location, I could not have asked for more. The benefits package was absolutely stellar and made me, a fresh college graduate, feel very cared for and appreciated and valued even though I lacked experience. The culture was very fun and they hosted Oktoberfest and Holiday social gatherings that were really pleasant to look forward to and attend.

    Cons

    I have nothing but positive comments to make about MacB and the people who work there.

    I worked at MacB full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Ok pay. But really really really great health insurance, probably the best I have seen at any company.

    Cons

    unstable as all DoD contractor jobs are without a war going on. Nothing against company, but an unstable industry.
