    Pros

    Professional Managers
    Enjoyable work environment
    Skilled co-workers
    High caliber team

    Cons

    Long commute time based on my own personal relocation area (not an MEP issue)

    Advice to Management

    This was an excellent place to work; the management was engaged and cared about the employees; the site lead was always fair, friendly and easy to work with; the environment was professional and engaging; and the team was focused on the task at hand. I received training here I had not yet experienced in the past, which was a plus. I recommend this position to prospective employees!

    Pros

    You don't feel like a number when you work here. Each and every person throughout the hiring process makes it known that you matter and that feeling continues after hiring. Good benefits, good management, good CEO.

    Cons

    Not nearly enough PTO to start out with. You cant get sick if you want to take a vacation later in the year.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees so they don't get burnt out. You would be surprised how loyal people can be if they have great reasons to stay.

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

    Pros

    I have had a very positive experience with ME. Every level of interaction was positive. My recruiter provided an accurate description of the position that I was interested in. The interview process was quick and thorough. I felt confident in the competence of the team that I worked with. The HR department was very proactive and responded to my questions in a timely manner. They were especially patient because of the questions I had regarding my family member with special needs that may fall under my guardianship.

    Cons

    The only thing I can recommend is the creation of a database that has the employees' additional skills, education and certifications. There are definitely people on the program that can help the company secure more contracts in fields outside of the position that they current work.
