Project Administrator/Education Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – August 2, 2017
I was fortunate enough to have worked with many talented, skilled staff who have been with MC Dean 10 plus years. These folks were my mentors and teachers and often my fellow team member in the trenches. I was blessed to have worked with Recruiting, HR, Education and as a Project Administrator on numerous high dollar projects where no 2 days were the same.
Very very fast paced and often demanding but very rewarding at the completion of every project!!
Medical, dental, vision insurance. Paid Time Off. 401K. Flexibility to go doctor's appt, etc... as needed.
Sometimes very stressful and very demanding like any other job.
Management (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 3, 2017
The company is a terrible place to work primarily because ownership and management are extremely disrespectful of all levels of employees. As a result, the corporate culture is a blame someone else for the problem type of organization. There isn't any team work. In short, the corporate culture is horrific and the turnover is huge. The accounting and IT systems are outdated, convoluted and wasteful. The Human Resources Dept. is a disaster. Enough said.
Senior Specialist (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – March 9, 2015
While several factors contribute to downsizing at MC Dean, the management is not in touch with the employees in regard to presenting issues directly facing the company. Additionally, personal and professional growth is often stunted by the harried nature of putting out fires that exist from poor planning and poor communication.
Other than that, I had several wonderful opportunities of a lifetime that I would trade for nothing - and learned a great deal within the company. Most personal growth is upon the employee - no complaints - but admittance to professional organizations is not reimbursed and professional publications from organizations that dictate the work to be performed is also not reimbursed.
Fire Alarm Design Engineer (Current Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 30, 2015
This was a company with good potential destroyed by bad upper management Possibilities off promotions close to none, they have tags attached to people and you will stay with that tag. If some management position becomes available they prefer to hire someone from outside. The more than qualified employees with years of experience within the company are not taken into the equation. The only method to get a pay raise is to submit a 2 weeks notice. High level of nepotism. Average salary and benefits.
Commercial/Industrial Electrician/ Foreman (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – August 11, 2014
office employees look down on you from their high horse, forgetting why they themselves have jobs. they could care less whether or not you have work from day to day. You are a number at MC Dean, and they never stop reminding you of that.
received a $1 raise after I went from having no license to obtaining a master's license
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Benning – April 11, 2014
This is a place where you can learn a lot and expand your knowledge beyond the clerical work. There are job opportunities if you're willing to stick with the company and travel. Most the co-workers are great
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – September 16, 2013
M.C. Dean, Inc. has the potential to be a good company, but it is plagued with poor upper management. In the time I have spent with the company, I have seen the same bad decisions being made over and over. Additionally, M.C. Dean, Inc. has not diversified itself well enough to be competitive. The company is constantly loosing good people because of the decisions being made at the top. I would highly recommend job seekers to look past M.C. Dean, Inc.
Security Technician (Former Employee) – Dulless, VA – January 16, 2013
The thing I enjoyed most was there was always something to do. I would come in to work and then realize my time was up and it was time to go home. There training is a great program that they offer for apprenticeships.
