    I worked at MindLeaders full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is dedicated and involved in their jobs and the overall culture of the company. Company and team retreats on a frequent basis. Entertaining parties and competitions for special occasions/holidays. Good benefits. Great people to work for/with. Challenging and stimulating environment. Flexible hours. Work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    The pay is low relative to similar companies in the area, but the atmosphere and benefits compensate for the low pay. The company was acquired and disbanded in 2012.

    Great while it lasted

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at MindLeaders

    Pros

    The people were the best part of the company. Hard working and willing to help one another. Some amazing work was completed. Customers were treated well and the staff went out of their way to assist them in any way they could.

    Cons

    The company had continued to fall behind and more was continually done with less. As the team size shrunk, the amount of work continued at the previous pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MindLeaders is gone, but remember the lessons learned.

  6.  

    Although they have been acquired by another company, MindLeaders was a superb place to work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Dublin, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dublin, OH

    I have been working at MindLeaders full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Team environment of employees and work and play hard. Very relaxed culture, in terms of dress code and room for creativity. Talented and drive people. Most members of upper management seem to genuinely care about employees.

    Cons

    Emphasis on getting projects done quickly, but not always effectively. Tendency to chase new products and features, without giving proper attention to existing products and features. Enjoyed working for the company, until I was put under management of an individual with no management experience and poor relational leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't hire anymore manager that don't have experience and, if you do, make sure they have someone to properly coach them. Focus on improving or fixing existing products, in addition to pursuing or developing new products.

    Loved the work and my co-workers, but the manager and leads in the courseware department are not up to the job.

    Former Employee - Text Developer in Dublin, OH

    I worked at MindLeaders as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The casual work culture is great, the work is interesting, most of the people are wonderful, decent money.

    Cons

    When it comes to text development, you are judged solely on how fast you turn courses around; the quality of your work is meaningless to these people. The manager, some of the leads, and the editor in the department are rude and insulting to others and frankly, are not cut out for supervisory positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please base decisions on who to put into supervisory/lead positions on professionalism, proven supervisory success and emotional maturity.

    Former Employee - Sales in Columbus, OH

    I worked at MindLeaders

    Pros

    A great, close-knit happy group of people to work with. Also, they made remote reps really feel like part of the culture. Events were fun, top performers were made to feel like superstars.

    Cons

    Money. This is a sales job where you are selling large, multi-year deals and the compensation is A. weak, and B. not distinguished enough between the people who do well and those who don't. Plus, I felt like when they hired me they exaggerated the numbers more than every sales job I had...as in, most people sell X. Shame on me for not checking it out myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your reps best interestes in mind when you make decisions, not your own.
