    I have been working at M+W Group full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits package. Ability to progress in career. Intelligent & nice coworkers. Very interesting & challenging projects.

    Cons

    Lack of investment in systems and people. Always seems understaffed. Poor work-life balance. Travel/relocation to project sites.

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in your people and give them the tools and development to be great at their jobs. It doesn't have to be so hard.

    I worked at M+W Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are no positive things to say

    Cons

    Where do I start? - No communication from Management on critical items like bonuses (none for last 2 years); merit increases (no communication at all, only select few got merits); what's going on in the company. -All the good people (A players are gone). -They constantly promote the wrong people, if you get demoted from a project you become a Director, if your department is disbanded and you are potentially out of a job you become a Director, if you are buddies with VPs you become a Director; if you cry because you want to move from east coast to west coast you become a Director - Recent voluntary departures of PM/DM who saved critical project in Rocky Mtn NW and was respected by Construction and Design; BD Lead who won many proposal efforts; Lead BD/Director for DataCenters all got fed up and moved on. -Software and hardware applications are pathetic. -No more A players left who Top 100 clients respected. -Do not promote the resources who made them money and executed projects successfully. -Current design organization is pathetic. -NO work life balance - The BIG project has still not materialized

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company while you can, clients are realizing the A players have left the company

    Pros

    Good people, good work/life balance, good salaries, culture flows easily with Intel's (client) culture.

    Cons

    Management seems to be lost on what they are doing. Client is always right, except when it is unreasonable and expects too much from the contractor. Company needs to push back a little. Benefits for employees of Nstar (smaller staffing firm owned by M+W) are very subpar with industry. They hire people before they are sure a contract is going to be awarded. Client portfolio is not diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify, hire more bold executives, and try to act upon facts and not hopes.
