I have been working at mindSHIFT full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Steady employment so far. We now have PTO time instead of a combination of vacation days and 3 sick days.

Cons

Some Management is extremely pushy and do not show gratitude to their staff. We had very good medical until BestBuy bought us. Now you pay a lot toward your medical bills. Since we are owned by a retail company we get retail benefits. No long high tech benefits. Some departments get new equipment when ever they want and others just keep there old equipment. People are looking to leave since the take over. They have made some of us salary people hourly. They even changed our titles to match those of their retail store employees. So much for being a professional in this company now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care about your employees and stop treating them like a number.

    Pros

    You learn something new everyday! Not only that but it's a great place to learn more about any field concerning IT.

    Cons

    It's mostly over the phone interactions so it can be stressful dealing with angry users blaming their problems on you.

    Pros

    Great place to work. The first week I was here the CEO introduced himself personally to me. Management's door is ALWAYS open. There's barely any feeling of any kind of beaurocracy within the management hierarchy. Offers rewarding work, a supportive environment, and a great interoffice dynamic.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have a more defined path for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.
