Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 22, 2016
I been with this company for almost a year and overall I must say it is a company that will place you where you need to be in your career. I enjoy the people that I work with and respect. I always say things in life will always need improvement and changes, without those things there will not be a way to grow. I asked that this company keep in an open mind for others and make more opportunity for training and growth.
Great Job site no communication or Process internal management issues.
Administrative Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 20, 2018
Busy typical day log in, calendar and travel documentation work.You are the onsite travel agent. Learned a lot about travel for folks in this department and the nasty attitude of the mid level micromanagers. Management always searching for your faults and what you don't understand to punish you. Company has their hands tied you are just a body filling a position. Hardest part of the job is trying to learn the travel proces with people that were over worked and under paid for what they are going through and not anger someone with questions regarding the job. So many underling managers wanting to be incharge very nasty attitudes. You are treated like a servant not a coworker. The most enjoyable job part of the job was to talk to 2 great Directors that had their hands tied and my 4 coworkers in the department. Overall they can do better by being human.
Good coworkers that work as a team. BMA has a good logo.
Not mission driven or care for the people working for them.

I worked remotely for BMA and found the work experience to be rewarding working from home. The teams I worked with and on were exceptional. The company employees are very helpful and go over and beyond in providing assistance to employees.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Westlake Village, CA – February 3, 2017
You had to jump into the deep end of the pool the minute you arrived. I was tasked with setting up a new chart of accounts for a private business. This was a very time sensitive project that I completed in just over 3 weeks.
I loved that it was a woman-owed business and that the staff were very intelligent.
Challenging endeavor that I completed before the deadline.
Lack of teamwork or support from any staff members
Staffing Specialist (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 10, 2016
BMA makes its employees' happiness a priority once you are hired. You are encouraged to call the corporate office if there are any questions or concerns; I've talked to Human Resources as late as 8 or 9 at night. BMA remembers your birthday, gives "on-the-spot" performance rewards, has employee events, and offers assistance during medical or family emergencies. When I'm between contracts BMA is the first company I call.
The company's treatment of its employees is better than most.
BMA can't always place you on a new project once your contract is over.
Official response from Business Management Associates

“BMA prides itself on maintaining contractual compliance, and part of that is educating our employees on federal contractor rules and regulations mandated by the Department of Labor. As all of our workforce are well aware, non-exempt, hourly employees enjoy regular overtime pay when the additional hours worked have been preapproved by the federal client. Salaried, professional, exempt employees and/or 1099 consultants are not paid overtime as federal laws stipulate.”
“BMA never provides, or promises, their employees overtime pay unless it has been preapproved by our federal customer.”
Business Management Associates wishes you the very best on your future work endeavors.
