Pros

People move fast - spirit of continuous improvement means that change abounds, but for the benefit of employees, processes and overall health of the business

True meritocracy - people who do their job and do their job well are rewarded, promoted and celebrated.

Don't take ourselves too seriously - birthday celebrations, happy hours and a sense of humor make the day to day enjoyable; serious about success but believe we can have fun while achieving it

Support and resources - ownership structure means investment in the technology offered to clients and other resources to get the job done

Opportunities abound - if there's something you want to do, you are supported, encouraged and given the chance to learn and contribute

Cons

Continuous improvement means lots of change - if you aren't on board with improving the business or growing and challenging yourself, it might not be the best fit

Advice to Management

Keep focusing on transparency, alignment and communication - the team at Mitratech is eager, excited and committed to following leadership that embraces these behaviors

    Willing to hire you if you have no experience, but employee morale really low

    Pros

    -Mitratech, and other Vista companies, will hire you even if you don't have relevant, or any, work experience.
    -Some managers actually care about their direct reports.

    Cons

    -Salaries aren't competitive until you reach director level or higher.
    -There's still some obvious favoritism.
    -At times, it seems promotions, raises, and bonuses aren't based on merit, but on how much your manager likes you.
    -Many employees are inexperienced and lack the knowledge and skills to do their jobs well.
    -Some people are really overworked while others sit around doing nothing all day.
    -The leadership team lacks product knowledge and sets unrealistic expectations for product management and development.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people with more experience. Identify and get rid of the dead weight employees. Incentivize your strong employees with actual cash bonuses and raises; not free snacks and beer.

    Pros

    There are some talented employees who really want to do well
    There are happy hours and other activities for the employees

    Cons

    The pay is low for the market.
    If you read some other reviews it sounds like people are often fired for no reason. I'm sure that's what some employees thought when I suddenly "disappeared." I remember thinking the same thing when another employee "disappeared." In my case, the truth is I gave my two-weeks notice. Later in the day as my co-workers were heading to a meeting, I was pulled aside, asked to sign papers, and walked out the door. This appears to be common practice at Mitratech. Managers tell employees that they can't talk about the absent people letting the employees assume the worst. I guess they don't want any employees to hear about better places to work for the next two weeks. They have reason to worry.
    At my current company, I have had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the CEO and several in senior management on many occasions. None of them actually work out of the Austin office. In my time at Mitratech, a smaller company, I didn't even meet the CEO who worked out of the same office.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. Sure, there are always talented entry-level people, but there is a cost to getting them up to speed. It's just another reason to work on your employee retention in ways that make employees happy to work for you.
