Good potential but no chance of success

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mirror Image Internet full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are a few good people here that if they were elsewhere could excel.

ConsThe root of most of the issues is senior management and the complete inability to have any kind of plan or understanding of how to run a technical organization. I believe the biggest issue is the COO which does not belong in that position and has no business running the company.

Unfortunately when you have problems at that level , there is no chance of success since the problem never goes away. I don't understand why the owners have not gotten rid of the COO and several others by now.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the dead weight and you could have potential success. The only way any success is possible is to bring in new upper management and start from the top. Otherwise, this company will eventually will cost to much to continue down this path.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great People, no corporate direction

Senior Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Tewksbury, MA

I have been working at Mirror Image Internet full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCreative staff, staff needed to find ways to work with older hardware and out of date software.

ConsLack of funds prevented us from keeping software up to date. Sr Management felt support contracts were scams and would not provide funds for software maintenance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

no work/life balance

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Burlington, MA

I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome decent people to work with
flexible schedule
pay is ok

ConsCrazy work hours 60+ hours easy ( especially in netops)
management is young and lacks experience
quality is not a requirement here and it is more quantity focus
many people are very burnt out and the attitudes can be very negative and even hostile at times

If you are looking for a long term job, this is not the place. If you choose to work here try to plan on only staying about a year or you will be completely fried... Lots of churn and burn . You will see many people come/go inside a year.

Advice to Senior Managementinvest in getting more experienced technical people and stop the insane work schedules. There has to be some balance in what is sold to customers and what is reality.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great co-workers, not so great management

Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
Tewksbury, MA

I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInteresting to learn about edge caching technology, albeit it was out of date. Lots of hands on experience and the ability to learn.

ConsPay cuts, attitude of owners towards employees. Lack of respect and out of touch with the industry. Direction of the company was misled in internal politics.

Advice to Senior ManagementAre you are service company or a software company, stop re-inventing the wheel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fading Away

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time for more than a year

ProsGood senior sales management and work/life balance.

ConsThey bizarrely have a sales rep (great resume!) in the CRO role and their technology is dated.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat Sales VP & Marketing guy, the rest are either pointless or unreachable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
