    Pros

    Never a Dull Moment, Great teamwork, New contracts, New Challenges, Very Fair Management, Awesome Benefits, Opportunity to learn new fields and advance when available.

    Cons

    Government spending will put a strain on volume of work. Areas of improvement take a long time to implement. (typically big ticket items) Employee accountability needs to be enforced.

    Communicate, and keep up the good work

    I worked at Mancon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    100% benefits pay for employees. Higher than Average wage (Don't be fooled-it's not worth it)

    Cons

    Upper Management makes up the rules as they go. If you're good at brown nosing - go for it - if not, watch out! Please get everything in writing as management changes polices without batting an eyelash - of course to their benefit. There is no employee handbook because things change so fast, they would always be creating a new one. If you question policy, you are out.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Don't cheat the employee. Don't act as a bully.

    Pros

    Highly autonomous and no yearly reviews, means you can do anything you want and have no reprecussions-great employer for those looking to slack off and not move up. All employees are hourly employees. Overtime pay = time and a half, however employees are often banned from submitting overtime hours during "financial cut backs"

    Cons

    Management sexually harassed multiple female employees for 2 years, employees reached out to higher ups asking for HR contacts, were told there were no HR representatives on staff and there was nothing they could do about it. (This was a lie, employees later found out there are 2 HR representatives on staff) Took 2 years of abuse to rid the company of the harrassers. There is no employee handbook so corporate... office is able to make up rules at-will. Examples of made up rules include unscheduled leave during government office OMB closures: during snowmeggedon in DC when the government was closed for 8 days in 2010 and contractors were unable to work, Mancon forced employees to use their vacation days. If an employee did not have enough vacation days, they were forced to make it up during overtime. Employees earn vacation days extremely slowly, it takes a full year of work to earn 10 vacation days. There are no sick days, you must use your vacation days. Weird accounting system. Employees MUST work a full 8 hr day each week, even if you work 9-10 hr days during the rest of the week and amass the normal 40+ hr workweek, but worked a 7 hr day, you must use 1 hr of vacation time.

    I worked at Mancon

    Pros

    Benefits are 100% company paid, wage is above average for region.

    Cons

    Management at all levels is totally incompetent. Company is still in the paper age...not tech savvy at all. Make sure all discussions with management are in writing as they have a problem with being truthful.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be truthful when hiring someone and gain management skills.
