Pros

Great office location
Free lunch twice a week
Excellent coworkers (exclude management)

Cons

For a small company like Mindjet, one spend too much time than it is reasonable to deal with politics rather than doing something productive. There are a lot of good insights and ideas around, but they don't get surfaced to upper management level nor do they get the right attention or respect. Communication across teams or management level does not exists. People are confused at times and don't know what is going on with other teams or management. Moral is low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to work on identifying and retaining skillful workers and get rid of the useless middle tier.
Encourage team spirit and have more team building events.

    Pros

    The company has a lot going for it. Recognized products, great customers, real revenue, and an opportunity to make a significant difference in an area of great importance for business (and the world): innovation.

    Cons

    Mindjet has its share of challenges including a newly formed executive team, shifting strategies, and aging technology. These can all be overcome and the Pros definitely outweigh the Cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on solving real customer pain points, delivering viable solutions that yield positive results. Less is More, stop chasing every opportunity and give time for the teams to do the job right.
