    I worked at Michigan Office Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company would be marginally better than collecting public assistance checks from the government. I give work/life balance 5 stars, because once you resign yourself to the fact this is a dead end job, you can do whatever you want until you leave. The key is not caring one iota about what your manager says.

    Cons

    Main product line = a business commodity that nobody cares about Technical (IT) resources = obsolete leadership = incompetent compensation structure = complete bull honesty and integrity = never met him

    Advice to Management

    You should write a confession letter to senior leaders at Xerox/ GIS about your level of incompetence, and resign. You are actively recruiting professionals to a company that will be nothing but a blemish on their career history. You know deep down, the level of incompetence you exercise in running this business, and you lie to candidates about it during the interview process. You should resign in shame.

    I worked at Michigan Office Solutions for more than 8 years

    Pros

    MOS has very nice mini vans that their copier repair techs drive. The building is very clean and spacious.

    Cons

    The old saying goes that the fish rots from the head down. Not at MOS the problem is never at the top. Based on the behavior of top leadership the this fish rots from middle management down. The answer to all of your problems will be solved by a last minute and poorly prepared for Friday meeting only to be followed by a nonsensical phone blitz. Problem solved. We now can keep our clients and gets some new ones... right? Wait no. This once good company is falling into disrepair because of the lack of engagement by the leadership, 1980's thinking, and the idea that the answer to every problem is "MORE". You have a revenue problem... hire more sales reps. You have a competitive disadvantage add more cost. You have a management problem add more managers. You have a leadership problem add more VP's. More, more, more!!!! What has happened is quite remarkable more has gotten you less. Less loyalty, less revenue, less tenure, and fewer customers. Did I for forget more fees? Yes we have those. And once the customers figure out that those fees are on the invoices they really like it. After all who doesn't like paying fees only to be coached on how the terms and conditions allow us to do that to you? A desperate company in an industry that is highly competitive and trying to hold on for dear life while it's larger competitors are devouring their once loyal customers. If you think this is over the top just stop a local MOS rep and ask them.

    Advice to Management

    Not much. According to you it is an amazing place to work and you are feeding a lot of families in Michigan. But if you do want to seriously fix problems try actually executing an open discussion meeting. I doubt you will though because preaching candor and actually fostering it is two different things. Candor: Freedom from prejudice or malice. I doubt you have it in you.

    Pros

    Some great people that were working there before the current leadership took ever. Plenty of warehouse space and nice shelving.

    Cons

    The leadership team has no morals or ethics and only looks out for their own paycheck. The micro manage their employees. They don't listen to their employees. They try to sue everyone who leaves after they do unethical things to them.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with a new leadership and management team

    Pros

    Organization has an elevator in case you are too tired to use the stairs.

    Cons

    It seems that there are a flurry of reviews posted ever time something negative is said on here. Wow. That should tell you what kind of people run this company. Do not solve the problem, just throw a temporary bandaid on a cut off leg. The only positive reviews of this organization are posted by the executive team in an attempt to salvage some C- recruits. Be very careful and pay attention during your interview....... You should get enough clues during that alone to know this organization is not a fit for anyone. Likely going out of business.

    Advice to Management

    This morally bankrupt (soon to be financially as well) is a hub of a much larger corporation. They really need to do a full investigation of this company and buy a new vacuum cleaner to lead it.

    Pros

    Fortunately, 'Leadership' is very busy, and too concerned with staying in business to worry about what you are doing day-to-day. This makes it slightly easier to look for other means of employment.

    Cons

    It is very difficult once you do find that new job to trust anyone you work for. MOS does not care about the people working there. It actually becomes scary going work everyday, and makes you question your ethical standards. It is not possible for your career to end well at this company, as typically wage garnishment and lawsuits follow your departure. Very concerning.

    Advice to Management

    Full refresh starting at the very top. Less scare tactics, and more positive reinforcement. Unfortunately, to accomplish this the parent company would need to step in and clean house.
