Pros

Small company with mostly college graduates on their first jobs. Relaxed communication with fellow employees.

Cons

Sales rep tend to get the blame for bad sales despite rather weak support from management. Unfair treatment for employees. Little room for growth because the company is tiny. Not a place to stay longer than 2 years if you want to have a professional career rather than just a job. When you do well though, the pay is pretty good for college graduates on their first jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manager must respect employees' need for better work life balance and not make employees feel bad when he/she take days off or take sick days. Need to be more fair in the treatment of all employees and not play favorites.

    Pros

    Mongoose is a fantastic place for recent college grads to get their first experience in sales. The corporate culture is "Work Hard, Play Hard", and Mongoose supports it without reservation. The entire staff goes out on a weekly basis and most of the fun is Mongoose sponsored. Four weeks of paid vacation and a couple extra days of Christmas holiday allow for ample time to relax throughout the year. Advancement is possible for anyone who wants to put in the two to three years it will take for your supervisor to move on.

    Cons

    Benefits are geared towards those without families. Salary is low compared to the normal expectation. The environment is slightly draconian, especially for those just out of college, but if anything it helps to create the responsibility necessary to succeed in the working world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Casual Fridays Every Day.

    If you think a job is about six hours of work and two hours of Facebook, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Want to read that headline you see popping up, retweet a friend's post or chat idly throughout the day? Forget it.

    Mongoose is a great place for recent college graduates who need a sharp wake up call to learn responsibility and develop a work ethic. Dedicated employees who are willing to toe the line are generally rewarded, but timing is everything and ambition will not always be enough.

    The atmosphere is energetic and the perfect illustration of "work hard, play hard". Happy hours are frequent and often on the company card, but regardless of the revelry, everyone is expected to be at their desks by 8:59am. It's a badge of honor to come into the office while violently ill (whether from drinking or illness), wearing the same clothes as yesterday or sporting a fresh black eye.

    Whatever you decide to do after your time at Mongoose, the experience will have toughened you up and given you a great deal of experience.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are far below average, but Mongoose is not where the best and brightest end up. The philosophy is more about finding diamonds in the rough that can be polished up over the course of a year or two before moving on to greater things.

    Flexibility is a fairy tale. Personal internet use is heavily restricted and even then allowed only during the lunch hour. The work day is strictly enforced down to the minute as are all of the somewhat draconian policies (such as the business casual dress code).
