Great management, but at constant threat of layoff
Fielding Coordinator III (Former Employee) – Stafford, VA – April 21, 2014
The president of the company makes an effort to know everyone on board. They try to find you another job within the companies contracts if you are about to leave through no fault of your own. Unfortunately, many contracts are not being won or are being de-scoped. MLT's contracts are mostly sub-contract and not the prime for clients. Sub-contractors are usually the first to go during a drawdown (which is going on right now due to the ravaged economy). As a result, the threat of layoff seems to loom in the horizon. You are also the lone MLT employee at most sites: that can be nerve racking especially when you have other companies' employees deciding your fate. I only saw co-workers from my company once in a blue moon. The other co-workers were from competitors' companies. They were great to work with, but again, they could have your career in their hands. The management is very people empowered. Unfortunately, that's not enough to win contracts, or be the prime contractor on many projects. This company supports mostly or all Department of Defense customers. DoD is doing a lot of cuts. You have great management, but (as of this writing) at the sametime the threat of layoff is always looming.
Very people empowered.
A lot of contracts not being won, or current ones being de-scoped.
