Pros

-Lots of good people in the company, but it will depend on the team. -Very flexible work environment. Culture is very relaxed and no one is counting the clock....you're just entrusted to get your job done.

Cons

-Not a lot of new blood which means not many new ideas. People stick around for a long time at Mentor....you need a balance of new folks with fresh thoughts and people that have been around while. -No career growth paths that I've seen anywhere. People get a job and there is no advancement. Can be very frustrating if you're ambitious. -Everything is silo'd into divisions with really no communication across divisions.

Advice to Management

Provide opportunities for employees to explore career paths outside of their current role. Encourage collaboration between the different product lines and divisions. People want to create amazing/great products and sell them. There is talent in Mentor....enable it!

    Pros

    Personally, I have had a wonderful experience at Mentor. Working hard and making the right contacts have resulted in job advancement and opportunity (although I hear from others that not everyone is given that opportunity). The campus is beautiful, the benefits are great, and the compensation is good if you make sure to ask for what you are worth. For a person with a family, the work life balance and onsite childcare are absolutely stellar.

    Cons

    It seems from time to time that Mentor is more about security for employees then pressing everyone to perform. It is frustrating to work besides people who are just comfortable and collecting a paycheck - but as long as you can be personally accountable and self satisfied that can be looked past.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing in new employees for new thoughts and ideas. I hate to say it but if you look closely at your ranks there are a number of people who could probably benefit from being shaken up a bit.
