Imagine Success Every Day

Great things happen when talent and preparation combine. We’re a group of sharp, diverse thinkers who believe in an endgame of facilitated change through exceptional software -- and breaking convention to get there. After all, seeing in new ways is the only path to imaginative success, and that means having fun while doing what you do best.

Balanced, enterprising, spirited: how we work reflects our company’s mission to innovate and succeed collectively.

WORK TO LIVE

We have a strong belief in maintaining a work/life balance. With our waterfront offices at the beautiful Levi’s Plaza, coming to work is a daily pleasure. Have lunch outside in the pastoral park or choose from a variety of great restaurants just steps away, including access to the Levi’s café. Mindjet also offers daily breakfast options, and caters lunch three days a week for employees.

HEALTH MATTERS

Aside from generous health, vision, dental, and commuter benefits, our employees enjoy weekly yoga classes and special membership offers from the Bay Club, located just one block away.

WE’RE ALL ABOUT FUN

Break time can mean a game of ping-pong or darts, enjoying the office wine and cheese happy hour, or racing a co-worker to the top of Coit Tower at lunch. Keeping work creative and dynamic means taking time out to recharge perspective, and with twelve paid company holidays (in addition to standard employee PTO) employees have the time to step away and enjoy life.

    Pros

    Excellent technology, variety of uses, enhances productivity. It's a great company to learn the value of solution selling, discussing benefits instead of features, and compensation is higher than normal for similar roles.

    Cons

    Headquarters (San Francisco) is where you want to be, that's where the collaborative process begins. It's a company that uses it's product very well, and that's what you sell to others.

    Advice to Management

    Think of the product in terms of the customer's likely usage, not the constant usage folks internally take for granted.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Mindjet in March 2013.

    Interview

    I applied, received no response.
    3 months later I was approached by a recruiter they had hired for the search.
    Excellent rapport with the recruiter.
    Telephone interviews with recruiter, then VP of Marketing + Director of Channels.
    3 hours of in person interviews.
    Nice group of people, interesting job.
    They "rescoped" the position and hired a completely different skillset.
    It was only through my repeated contact with the recruiter was I able to find out, 2 weeks later,that as a final round candidate I had not been made aware of the business change or elimination of the position.
