    I have been working at MTI

    Pros

    They are fair and try to hold on to every employee they hire. Management is friendly, and they support you in your position.

    Cons

    Hours aren't as flexible as I'd like. I would prefer to be able to adjust my schedule a little more according to how I feel I can function best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to take risks. Pay people what they are worth, and they'll keep your back.

    Pros

    Simply put, the best reason to work here is that the product is really good. Can't really say more than that.

    Cons

    This is a family owned business, and they don't let you forget it. Had to put up with constant micro-managing from every member of the family (five) employed there. All marketing positions were eventually eliminated due to the belief that those functions were simple and that management could do it themselves. They don't give fair compensation for any position other than upper level sales positions. Minimal vacation days and time off unless you worked your way to 10 years of employment. The CEO was constantly walked all over by his son, the EVP. He let his son make some decisions that seriously jeopardized the continued well-being of the company in my opinion. The EVP likes to maintain control over every aspect of the business, and has an extremely hard time letting positions operate with any degree of autonomy. He would act like you had the freedom to make a decision but then have to approve every single item you did. My advice would be to steer clear of this place at all costs. Not worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO should grow a spine and stand up to his kids. He always let them walk all over him. EVP should understand that he doesn't know everything and trust in the employees he hires as they are the experts in their field, and having an MBA doesn't give you a magical knowledge of everyone else's jobs.
