    I worked at Mission Essential full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single one. This company scores pretty low on the morality scale.

    Cons

    Mission Essential is only concerned with their bottom line, not with the quality of their work or the quality of their hires. I know - typical defense contracting, right? But not every company is willing to sink this low. They underbid everyone with an absolute lack of morality. No perks. Terrible benefits.

    I have been working at Mission Essential full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment and wonderful team/department full of caring and hard working professionals. Company does their best to listen to needs of employees. The work is hard, but the teams also know how to have fun together. Daily honoring of those fallen in support of the missions really helps keep the reason we do what we do at the forefront of our minds, keeps us motivated, and is a wonderful and respectful way to appreciate and thank those who have given their all for the freedoms we enjoy. This company really does do its best to help support those fighting for our freedom as safe as possible and I'm proud to be a part of that. This company and recruiting department is unlike anything I've worked for in my past employment. It really is a step above.

    Cons

    Better PTO and work from home policies. More companies nowadays are starting to consider unlimited PTO programs and are finding it's actually saving companies money. People also, on average, tend to take fewer days when given this option... something to seriously consider.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to listen to employees and their concerns...

    I have been working at Mission Essential full-time

    Pros

    Atmosphere is great as laid back. Great focus on serving military and honoring those who have and currently serve. Flexible with commitments outside of work.

    Cons

    1 week paid maternity leave. Health care options for family are expensive. More concerned with winning contracts and filling them than their employees. Currently underbidding contracts and recruiting lower level contractors with low rates. Pay is only great if you're a recruiter or executive / management.

    Advice to Management

    Review your pay structure and benefits package. Stop undercutting bids for new contracts or offer higher pay and less take home for the company to improve quality of candidates.
