    I have been working at Mind Over Machines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Mind Over Machines is composed of smart, dedicated people that want to see every employee succeed, which in turn helps the company succeed. If any questions should arise, all teammates will answer them quickly and honestly.The projects are interesting and very innovative.

    Upper management is always willing to listen to employees and want feedback about what is working within the company. In addition, they also want to know what can we change, and what can be work on to make the company a fantastic place to work.The CEO, Tom Loveland, is fantastic, caring, and wants his employees to feel valued.

    I have been in the business for over 10 years and this is one of the best technology companies I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Honestly I haven't found anything negative yet. Management bends over backwards to keep you happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Mind Over Machines as an intern

    Pros

    As an intern, this is exactly the type of work and office setting that I was looking to work in and I've really enjoyed my time here so far.

    Excellent work-life balance
    "Open door policy"- all the employees are friendly and willing to talk & help one another
    Great company and office culture- Professional but relaxed
    Everyone loves the work they do and enjoys a challenge
    Employees are given independence to work on what they need
    Management is always helpful and available without micromanaging

    Cons

    I haven't seen any problems here. It seems as if problems do arise, the management team would be completely open to talking about it and fixing it.

    Pros

    This is the type of work environment I had hoped to be in when considering a career as a web developer. The other employees are interested in their work and new technologies. Management is interested in seeing their employees progress. I learned a lot. The location is great. The facilities are nice. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    I had a very good experience with my time at Mind Over Machines and I am a better developer for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer your employees opportunities based on their interests and experience outside of their current position.

    I have been working at Mind Over Machines full-time

    Pros

    Invests in employees
    Willing to try new things
    Interesting projects
    Great work life balance
    Long history
    Willing to fail and evolve to move on
    Constantly trying to improve

    Cons

    The entrepreneurial spirit requires one to be very self-starting.
    Those wishing only to be cogs may find their jobs are not so narrowly defined.
    The diversity of projects requires constant learning of new technologies and methodologies

    I am leaving Mind Over Machines with a very positive vibe. I cannot think of a negative expereince to share. I would recommend them without hesitation.

    Big head laden with small mind

    I have been working at Mind Over Machines

    Pros

    good location
    good office facilities
    flexibility regarding personal matters
    occasional interesting project

    Cons

    The headline summarizes it - bloated management layer with narrow vision. Makes one wonder if there's anyone among the management whose interests extend beyond their own advantage. Lack of respect and lack of competent leadership provides for the environment that is often insulting to a professional. They will spend hours preaching the semantics of words such as value and quality, but in the end they will suppress any initiative from within that would suggest improvement thereof, as if threatened by it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long thorough look at where the company is headed and start relying on decisions of those whom you hire to do the job. If you can't tolerate the initiative from people who knows how to do things right, then junior personnel is the only material that you can work with, but for that you don't have anyone to lead them in the right direction.

    Management heavy (handed)

    I worked at Mind Over Machines

    Pros

    As work place this company has a very diverse team and can have some potentially interesting projects. The energy of the workplace can at time be exhilarating.

    Cons

    The ratio employees managers is rather low, making it very top heavy company. Some managers display no respect whatsoever towards their employees and place their own personal gain before the company's. The company's energy comes mostly from the hard work of the employees but creativity is not encouraged leading to many senior employees leaving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen your employees: they are the ones actually doing the work and more often than not have wonderful ideas that could increase your customer base.

    I have been working at Mind Over Machines

    Pros

    -Good holidays
    -Good people to work around
    -Good environment. Employees are good and cooperative with each other. So finding good friends.

    Cons

    -Pay raise problems as it always
    -Negotiation in starting
    -Implementing new offers and bonuses are pending. So would be better to improve these.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Average salary would make employees happy in their life. Below average would make an employee stressful in his or her life.
