A good company who focuses on trending IC population. With the environment changing towards independent professionals, this company may be worth looking into

Awesome company to work for.

I had the opportunity to work for MBO during the pandemic of 2020 and it was an amazing experience. I have no complaints but positive things to say. Great benefits and you placed on good projects that coincides with your experience.

Great Pay

I was rolled off my project due to Budget cuts COVID 19 but as soon as I can get on another project I'm ready. The project I was on was a bit unorganized and the management team was unpredictable but other than that it's great company to work for.

Pros

Remote work great pay

Cons

Management Team was very unorganized

My appreciation and loyalty for this Company will always remain solid.

Pros

The pros are endless

Cons

There are no none cons to date

Productive and fun place to work

The work load could sometime be a little challenging, but the staff at MBO definitely make the job. I am very thankful for my time at MBO and I would recommend the job to a friend or family member!

Poorly managed, unorganized company

I worked at MBO Partners for two months and had a bad enough experience to quit without another job lined up. The position advertised by the recruiter did not accurately describe what the job really was. The clients are so poorly managed that no one actually knows how to complete the necessary tasks. All of the employees are so far behind, at least on my team, that people would turn their phone volume off because they simply did not have time to answer calls to assist their clients. Things only got done when they were followed up on by the client multiple times. There was a month of training that had nothing to do with my position, and I felt as though I was not aptly trained on what I needed to know to succeed. When I went to my manager with my concerns, she had nothing to say about them. When I went to the recruiter with my concerns, she wrote me off and essentially said it was me- not them. Overall, complete waste of time. Do not work for MBO Partners.

Pros

good pay

Cons

stressful environment

Unclear Vision

I was hired in for position that previously didnt exist in a full time capacity. Within 7 months, I was laid off due to the desires of senior leadership, who were completely out of their depth. The direct manager I had was fantastic and I would work for that person again.

Not for everybody

Leadership in general at this organization is very disengaged, and several are very unprofessional. For a small company, they change strategic direction regularly and without clear focus. There is a lack of communication. They have a very unique service offering but great difficulty in communicating it to potential customers. They are working on creating a more identifiable culture which will help. The most enjoyable part is the good people who do work here. There are many.

Pros

Nobody else does what we do. There is a lot of tenure with mid-level positions.

Cons

Some people have been there so long it is hard to get them to think differently, They get in their own way.

Payroll Organization for Contract

Contracted through MBO Partners, minimal interaction with any MBO Employees. MBO was agency who issued weekly check and W-2. The offer healthcare and a 401k plan after billing 500+ hours. Very simple process, minimal paperwork and website is user-friendly.
