Top Five Reasons to Work at MMS

MMSH Team

Our Family Atmosphere

We are a mid-size company that operates like a close-knit family. Although we have colleagues located all over the world, when we reach out to each other it seems like we are talking to friends who have known each other for years. On every colleague’s first day, we send a welcome note to the entire company letting everyone know we have a new colleague. We also keep a colleague slide deck with pictures, education, work experience, and hobbies. It’s the small things that help us forge relationships regardless of where we are located.

Our Great Opportunities

We hire colleagues who have over 20 years of experience and some that have none. Colleagues are assigned a mentor to help them learn and grow. This allows experienced colleagues to share their insight and knowledge and teach techniques to our less experienced teammates. It's rewarding to see colleagues who started as Interns and Research Associates get promoted multiple times, turn into senior level colleagues, managers, or senior managers. We also provide colleagues with opportunities to attend professional training and seminars. Whether you are just starting out in your career, or many years in, MMS has opportunities for personal development and growth.

Our Team Feeling

We are all part of one big team, and many smaller ones. We have teams for departments, client projects, and special interests. Having many departments and having colleagues located all over the world, it would be hard to give everyone the opportunity to interact on a normal basis without creating teams. At the beginning of each year, our Senior Leadership team holds a Year Beginning Meeting. We review the previous year and discuss goals for the new year. Each team plays an active role in the design process. We also have an exchange program where colleagues from our India offices or Europe travel to meet each other.

Our Company Events

We host a wide variety of company events throughout the year. The last Friday of every month we have a “Game Day” where onsite colleagues get together to enjoy lunch and play games. In the spring, we have a bowling event where we provide pizza, pop, and two games of bowling for an afternoon. Summer brings our company BBQ picnic where we offer BBQ style food and get together under a pavilion to play games or relax outside for an afternoon. In the fall, we host an annual Scientific Symposium that allows our talented team members and outside speakers to come to MMS for a full day of education sessions, trainings, and lunch. In addition, we have a Fall pot-luck and costume party to celebrate Halloween. In the winter, we host a holiday party and our Audio/Video committee shows a video showcasing all company events that happened throughout the year.

Our Training

At MMS, we are big on training and development. With the recent implementation of our Learning Management System, we spend less time worrying about keeping training records straight and more time focusing on personal development. We have two training coordinators dedicated to ensuring our trainings are up-to-date and relevant for the work that we do. Training is done not only at the time of hire, but throughout the year. Some training is done individually by reading Standard Operating Procedures and Work Practices and other training is done in a classroom setting so colleagues can get together and learn in a group. This also is an opportunity for colleagues who have a lot of experience or knowledge in certain areas to show what they know to the rest of the company.
