FORCED overtime
Linguist/Translator (Current Employee) –  Pacific NorthwestDecember 9, 2018
When on assignment you complete 40 hours and then some. Reimbursement for travel expenses is a perk. Being paid per diem is great, as long as it is the full amount set by the GSA versus half.

MVM cares about the numbers, wanting to show productivity is one thing. But using fear tactics to make an employee take time out of actual productive time to demonstrate this is not constructive. Let the work speak for itself. If a client is unhappy, MVM will be sure to know.

Micromanagement will only harbor resentment, being constantly badgered by remote supervisors through a busy shift is not the way to go. If there is a site supervisor, pay them to submit the numbers, outside of federal time, not during a shift.

MVM should consider employee morale, if not for the sake of employees, then for MVM's own reputation. While it may seem cost-effective to force employees to work an entire assignment without a day off, in the long run the work product will suffer and create high turnover as employees burn out. Remember that linguists are people, not robots.
Pros
Working lunches, decent hotels, fast-paced exciting job.
Cons
Too much time being badgered to enjoy your job, no days off to decompress, fear tactics used accross the board.

Productive and easy facility to be a part of as a security officer.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Ashburn, VANovember 25, 2018
Social Security Administration Office is a great facility to work for. The employees are for the most part always in compliance with the procedures of security. The hardest part of the job is being micro-managed everyday, as if you do not know your job or haven't been trained. Days working runs pretty smooth with the exception of maybe a few incidents with employees but that's pretty normal behavior in this type of facility housing thousands of employees. The security position where is very good. There is also room for some advancements also.
Pros
Some advancements
Cons
no lunch break unless you worked over 7 hours. one 10 minute break

The company is a good company to work for, this particular contract's local managers lack leadership skills and are known for pitting employees against each other and creating a hostile working environment.

Fast passed
Bilingual Travel Youth Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 6, 2018
This is a great position for someone who enjoys a fast passed work environment and who do not mind traveling for long periods of time. The only downfall to this is that you do not have a set schedule and it is not consistent.

Unhealthy work atmosphere
Spanish Analytical Linguist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 28, 2018
Unfair scheduling, poor local management, tense work environment. Job used to be fun and exciting with previous company, now it's stressful due to "quotas" that need to be met and micromanagement. Pay is not worth the emotional distress.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Everything else

Great pay, horrible atmosphere
Analytical Linguist (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 10, 2018
The pay is great, work load is distributed among long timers at the company, there is too much favoritism played by those who are part of the click. If you are new you will be put under scrutiny by other employees and if you do not catch up to their way of doing things immediately they will work together to get you out! I have never worked on such a dog eat dog atmosphere like this one!
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Too many variables to get on schedule to work

The benefits are provided by our union CBA with MVM, Inc. otherwise, benefits would be average. The management selections are very poor. No clue in managerial skills. Hostile working environment.
