    A Large Company That Doesn't Know It

    Former Employee - Information Technology  in  San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Information Technology in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Millennium Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My peers were some of the best people that I have worked with.

    You are supporting a very good cause through your work.

    Medical coverage is good , if you have a few thousand dollars in your savings account.

    Free water in the break room.

    A great place for entry-level and Junior level professionals to learn the ropes. If you don't mind working with 6 year old technology.

    Cons

    Motivation through shaming was commonplace. Not by management, but by people who fancy themselves as management. And this behavior is tolerated by actual management.

    Creativity, and problem solving can get you into trouble. Very specific solutions and implementations are dictated, often by people who have never done the job you are trying to do, You will be reminded that you are not allowed to make decisions. Both directly, and indirectly.

    Project management is poor. It's not that the Project Managers do a bad job. It's that they have no authority, and outside influences often prevented success. Warnings of impending failure were commonly ignored. Or got you uninvited to status meetings.

    I imagine that most people spent their time with their head down and their mouth shut, just trying to get through the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It takes more to valuing employee contributions than hanging a Suggestion Box in the break room.

    You will go a long way by treating the employees how you want to be treated. Both in terms of information sharing, and pinching pennies in non-executive buildings and resources.

    Hire good people and then trust them to do their job. I saw that written somewhere as part of a mission statement or training guide or something, and I almost fell out of my chair laughing.

    Current Employee - Billing Department  in  Rancho Bernardo, CA
    Current Employee - Billing Department in Rancho Bernardo, CA

    I have been working at Millennium Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Better than average benefits, up to date technology, executive management strives to keep family oriented environment set forth by owner and founder, company does as much for employees morale more than I've seen with other employers

    Cons

    Billing department is very micro managed, this part of the industry is cutthroat, but I've been treated more of an adult at my previous jobs. In this department prepare to be baby sat. Management likes to pick on the weaker links as leverage, more like bullying. HR is not great at recognizing actual talent for interdepartmental transfer, you are more likely to be shutdown than given a fighting chance to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints from employees more seriously before you have a suit for harassment.
