    Pros

    Some of the individuals were great but a majority have since left too.

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about themselves. Only get promoted if you are in the inner circle other than that there is no chance for you.

    I have been working at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Morgan Franklin for a couple of weeks and I'm really happy to be here. The company culture is great, employees in the HQ office are extremely helpful and efficient, emails get answered in minutes, IT tickets are done immediately, the payroll team is great, recruiting team is off the charts, the directors are approachable and fair... basically everyone here is hardworking, there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to work hours, so far a good work/life balance, managers and directors are there for you, you really end up feeling like a part of the team and a good team at that. There is really good potential to grow, there is a clear cut pathway which you can keep going upward and if you work hard and are dedicated there shouldn't be a reason not to excel.

    Cons

    Training schedule isn't set in place, you kind of have to learn as you go.

    Pros

    MorganFranklin is a great place to work because they always put people first. I feel valued as an employee because I (like everyone else) am put on projects where I will grow as a person and a consultant. I also feel that we have provided value to our clients through strong teamwork.

    Cons

    As with most consulting companies, the travel can be difficult at first but MorganFranklin does a good job of balancing work and life. We have many local clients that serve as a nice break from the out of state travel that can be tiring.

    Pros

    Great place for a young person to start a career.

    Cons

    You can easily stagnate jumping from one contract to another. Not a place I ever intended to stay and retire in.

    Advice to Management

    Look into getting into other areas besides the federal government.

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, nice building and facilities.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy (the amount of senior managers is ridiculous), little to no lower-level staff, limited pipeline, everyone seems to be looking for a way to get out, so you never know if your superiors or colleagues will still be with the firm tomorrow. High attrition rate. Lots of behind the door gossip among top leadership.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO shouldn't be worshiped like he is; He isn't that important.
    Address attrition rates.
    Hire staff and not just senior managers and directors. The place is extremely top-heavy.

    - Often felt like a machine
    - Not collaborative

    Advice to Management

    - Loosen up
    - Do not expect to be perfect
