    I worked at Mandel Scientific full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some good co-workers with integrity and intelligence

    Cons

    I have read the reviews and it's sad to see that nothing has changed and the same problems continue five years after I left the company. I found that a certain core group of employees were allowed to do things that other employees weren't which was very frustrating. Some co-workers did very little work and were allowed to get away with it because they were friends with the manager and the rest had to pick up the slack. Hard to talk to management. They go through the motions of listening but don't work towards any solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to take a closer look at what is happening between manager and employees and investigate why people are leaving.

    Pros

    There are still some very good people working here for some reason.

    Cons

    Misogynist behavior towards women; No room for advancement; Management approaches conflict passive-aggressively or with intimidation, seems to deal exclusively with redundant issues while completely ignoring larger, core issues; Air of superiority towards lower-level employees; Fostering a culture of paranoia (telling people they see, hear and know everything) and distrust - necessary information is not passed along through appropriate channels but funneled through gossip; Micro-management of travel expenses; Management often singles-out individuals for ridiculous issues (making toast); Shockingly low company morale; No loyalty to employees; Management shows a blatant disregard for common decency or proper business practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some extremely serious core issues with this place. You need to take a long, hard look at what you are doing. You are driving good employees out the door in droves.

    Pros

    Some very nice co-workers, experience dealing a lot of attention to detail. Good experience dealing with a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    A lot of confusion and disorganization throughout the whole company. Putting up with double-standard from management towards productivity. Management spent more time quick fixing issues instead of properly addressing larger core problems. Ridiculous amount of network issues. Low company moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some basic prioritizing would go a long way. Try to avoid complaining to your workers about other workers so much, somewhat unprofessional.
