    Pros

    Bagel day, Yoga, paid meals, services

    Cons

    Unresponsive management, uneven application of guidelines and rules. Favored employees allowed to use company resources for political/person business. Blame the messenger avoidance culture. Bullying and harassment rumored but did not personally experience. Anxious for most of time employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the Fat. Respond professionally to complaints. Fire employees using company resources for online political organizing.

    I worked at Melissa Data full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Bagels on Mondays. Nice monitors.

    Cons

    Mid-morning snacks are from Costco.
    HR Sexual Harassment Complaint process is a joke.
    Salaries are very low for Software Engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take Sexual Harassment complaints seriously. And pay Software Engineers at least the market rate, and not the intern rate.

    The company takes all complaints seriously and addresses complaints within 24 hours, although in 10 years there has only been one. When the complainant is satisfied with the result and sends a ... More

    Pros

    Job performance, work excellence, creativity and employee development are all balanced well. You really feel like a member of the family when the kitchen table is loaded with fresh fruit for anytime snacks. We've got bagels, donuts, company lunches, department lunches, exercise classes, free haircuts, car washes while we work and basketball games in the parking lot. The owner and the rest of upper management is quite accessible and open to ideas. Hard work and fresh ideas are rewarded with promotion and advancement.

    Cons

    It's a bit remote. The toll road is very convenient but costly. The freeway is congested during rush hour. The company only has only 4 locations so transfer options are limited. Employee turnover is very low so the advancement opportunities are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses more often.

    Pros

    Company truely cares about employees' well being:

    Bagel Day, Donut Day, Fresh fruit Day, Yoga Classes, Personal Trainers, In Office Massage, Profit Sharing Etc.....

    Great starting pay and ramp up system

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth above team manager

    Find yourself with little to do during down time - can feel like working for a call center rather than a sales position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to treat employees kindly and people will continue to speak highly of your company. Hiring from sources other than within may bring more qualified employees.
