    There are many pros in working for a company like Makosi: Management supports an "open door policy" which they actually follow through on, you are challenged daily to grow your skills, and your ideas are always taken into consideration.

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

    Pros

    I have worked at Makosi as both a consultant and as part of the in-house staff. I always felt supported on site when I worked with one of their clients. With Makosi, you don't feel like a number, but part of an extended family. Working as a member of the sales team the past year, it became evident that this is a special company. Their approach towards managing relationships with clients while supporting resources is unique.

    Cons

    The internal systems are constantly changing, so it is sometimes difficult for employees to constantly switch platforms.

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

    Pros

    Excellent culture, many fun networking and team-building events, good compensation, management is always willing to listen to employees, CEO will not only make time for you-but encourages you to schedule 1-on-1 time with him. Makosi is very easy to work for, meaning reviews, timesheets and other admin items are kept to a minimum. Makosi doesn't waste anyone's time, freeing employees up to succeed for their clients. There is also a support/concierge person assigned to each consultant to handle any questions/concerns within 24 hours. Benefits are excellent for employees, and standard if you want to cover your family. I was very impressed with the employee only healthcare costs.

    Cons

    Although considered full-time (and W2) most employees who work at a client site are paid hourly/daily with the only paid time off being the mandatory NYC sick leave.

    Advice to Management

    Offer 1 paid week off for every year of employment for hourly/daily employees.
