    Pros

    I work with good hard working people

    Cons

    They are getting rid of employees who have been with Mitchell for more than 10 years and outsourcing to people in India and Mexico. This company is not about equal opportunity. Their motto should be, "It's not what you know, it's who you know." Most of the time the jobs are not posted and the positions are just handed to people. The quality of work is going down the drain because of the outsourcing. Devoted employees work for this company for 7 years and still won't hire those employees on permanent. They are taking advantage of people. All the employees work really hard and upper management always takes the credit for it. Supervisors and managers need to stop playing favorites and keep an eye on those favorites because they are taking advantage. If policies are going to be enforced it needs to be enforced for all employees. They got rid of the school reimbursement program, a lot of the paid holidays and now we have to use our vacation time to take it off. There is no opportunity for growth. No objectives are given to move up in your position. The reviews are never on time and the merit increases are random. When employees do get promoted, they keep them at the same pay. Mitchell doesn't care about it's employees. The only goal on their mind is get rid of it's most valuable and hard working employees so they can save money for poor quality of work by outsourcing. The work we do is not appreciated and that's why we are all expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Poor quality of work and cheap labor = loss of clients! Open your eyes, not your pockets!

    Pros

    A lot of activities and trainings.

    Cons

    Like all big companies, it is bit slow as far as making decisions and/or making actions.

    Advice to Management

    Mitchel is a big company and it is like a big machine that needs some labrication to work smoother and faster. Departments are slow in making actions and/or making desicions sometimes. Improve communications between departments.

    Pros

    I personally have an amazing boss. He's the Inside Sales Manager. He works very hard for us. He makes sure things are fair for you. He works with you for any extra Training. As a "sales" team we work great together and help each other . Salary is great, Benefits Great, Targets are Attainable and Commissions are Amazing. I've worked here 18 months. Before this job, I worked as a sales person for 13 yrs at similar company. They treated you awful and didn't pay you no matter how amazing your performance was. I will be making close to 100k this year with Salary and Commision combined. That doesn't count all the extra rewards they give throughout the year. My previous company selling four times as much I made less than 50k. It starts with M1.

    Cons

    I don't see any..Honestly. I would recommend this Career path to my family and all my friends and previous co-workers. Actually I HAVE !

    Advice to Management

    THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT US AS PEOPLE AND OUR FAMILIES.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, meritocratic workplace, good training, decent benefits, learn lots of highly relevant technologies, they are in the process of converting to agile

    Cons

    Salaries for engineers are somewhat lower than industry standard, data management policies can cause bottlenecks and blocks in software engineer productivity, required to work with a lot of legacy code that is not well tested (making it difficult to change)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to become more agile, remove bottlenecks in software development process, trust engineers with more DB priviledges

    Pros

    Until I got laid off this position was a guaranteed job since the call center was getting an increased number of calls.

    Cons

    Some of the less pleasant things that I needed to do were fill out a self assessment, goals and other related information.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Good campus. Good Salary/Benefits. Company has been seriously doing exercises to build a brand. HR has been taking initiatives to make the place more employee friendly. Company has been going agile.

    Cons

    This might be dependent completely on the team you work for. Lot of politics. Management lacks vision. Lot of effort gets wasted on stuff which are completely useless due to the lack of vision and politics. Criticism of the management team is not welcome. The turnover in my team has been pretty high - but no steps has been done to identify the reason and fix it. Teams tend to play the blame game on any issue rather than stepping up and solving it. Lot of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Identify inefficient middle management and get rid of it. Identify people who really gets the work done and reward them. Welcome 360 degree feedback.
