Potential

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mitel Networks

ProsGreat innovator. They used to have great people, however, many changes have taken place over the past two years. The potential is enormous with Mitel.

ConsLost their innovation edge and the new leadership that has been brought in doesn't seem to be getting it done. They were on the right track 3 years ago of becoming a pure software play. But that really hasn't come to fruition.

Advice to Senior ManagementInnovate, Innovate, Innovate.

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

Innovative company with limited potential to move upward

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mitel Networks

ProsGreat for creative types: company is always looking to improve its solution portfolio and are open to ideas across all levels. Senior Management is approachable and open to feedback. Telecommuting options available for certain positions.

ConsIt’s a hard company to grow in: Easy to move from job to job, but upward mobility is a real challenge/ Easy to hit a glass ceiling. No/ limited career development and the company will does not give raises (hard to get a raise even if you do get promoted).

Advice to Senior ManagementHR/ Management needs to work with employees at all levels to develop career growth plans

Mitel...Eh.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Reno, NV

I have been working at Mitel Networks

ProsGreat benefits package; exceptionally higher pay scale compared to other similar positions in the area; employee longetivity.

ConsMitel is much more revenue-driven than its predecessor, Inter-Tel, which has a huge effect on employee morale and comraderie. Overall, not much is done to fulfill employee satisfaction.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate middle-level management entities; consider new ideas to help boost employee morale.
