    I have been working at Morneau Shepell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility- You can work from home and if there's an emergency management can be understanding.

    Cons

    Leadership - Very top heavy, many people to delegate and not enough people to work.
    Resources - not enough workers, not enough up to date technology
    Quality - You can tell that quality is not a number 1 priorit
    Turnover - many people are consistently being laid off or quitting and no one "qualified" is hired let alone being hired at all
    Life/Work balance - Everyone other than leadership is working themselves to death. They know this, but they do not care.
    Pay - They'll low ball you as much as possible. You work so much that you're not getting paid what you really should.

    Opportunity- Plenty of opportunity, but it's all LATERAL, so don't expect an increase in pay even if you're well rounded with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of cutting your bottom so much, cut your top. It doesn't take 6 people to manage 1 thing. Show that you care for your employees through more than just a thank you because a thank you will only last for so long.

    Listen to your employees. For no reason should something matter once things start to get bad. When an issue is recognized listen and TRULY investigate, this will help to prevent your clients from learning issues.

    Do not go to the Town Hall meetings lying. If the people working on your client see how bad things are and you come to tell them otherwise, you will lose trust. The past 3 town halls you've lost the trust of many along with the confidence that this company can thrive.

    During implementations, there should NEVER be an agreement to anything unless it has been reviewed with the proper people to determine how things can be executed and the timing of each request. This is your BIGGEST DOWNFALL.

    I hope you take my advice.

    I worked at Morneau Shepell full-time

    Pros

    I worked in the Greentree PA office for 2 years. I got out.

    Cons

    More like working with immature children. Gossip backstabbing and the management sucks, spends more time smoking than taking care of problems. Management promoted someone who does nothing but watch videos on youtube all day. Horrible supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and take a good look at how you are losing good people, but trust me they don't care, you are just a body in a chair to answer the phone. So sad

    Pros

    -Teleworking, Great work/life balance
    -Great Benefits
    -Competitive Salary

    Cons

    -Lack of accountability

    -Bad location/commute
    -Constant turnover/restructuring (3 bosses in 5 months)
    -Not clear path for career development
    -Company is very siloed/lack of collaboration

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategy, align all projects/objectives/initiatives with that strategy, prioritize projects/objectives/initiatives based on cost savings or benefits, develop metrics to track, and create controls for sustainability. All of this will allow for maximum corporate growth instead of winging it
