    Pros

    Mitratech hires very smart people. Everyone works very hard at their job and there is a very fun vibe in the office. I trust the leadership team in their decisions and I truly believe they want their employees to be happy. Mitratech does fun things like happy hours, snacks (which usually run out quickly), field days, intramural sports, and volunteering opportunities.

    Cons

    Salaries are way below average. Most people in the company are having to work nights and weekends just to keep up with the workload. There is open PTO but there is so much work to do, it's hard to get away.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire more people in certain departments and be able to see when their employees are being burned out. There is only so much work you will do for low pay. The stress of the workload is starting to out weigh the company culture perks.

    Pros

    I've been here for about a year and my experience has always been positive. You're surrounded by a smart, youthful, and professional staff who all drive and support one another. The mood around the office is always either calm or charged, with occasional bouts of laughter from yonder. No one is truly alone here, there is always someone, a manager or a co-worker, who are more than willing to help you or hear you out. Whether you like it or not, the people you work with becomes something like a second family and this group always looks out for one another, even across departments. The organization is very flat, and you can talk to the CEO, the VP, or anybody about anything and they're always glad to connect with you and open to making your experience here better.

    Cons

    Our company has to adhere to the Vista model, which is built on giving inexperienced yet motivated people opportunities and it's a way for our parent company to maintain a less than competitive salary

    Advice to Management

    The road of development will always be a bumpy, beware of charting long term plans according to a smooth and flawless trajectory

    Pros

    I really enjoy coming to work at Mitratech - the people are smart, enthusiastic, and fun to be around, the leadership is open and transparent about how we are doing as a company, and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    There's always alot of change going on, so you have to be prepared to roll with the punches. The salaries aren't the highest in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the pockets of middle management that aren't equipped to be good managers. Pay up for employees that are bringing alot of value to the company.

    Pros

    Good process management software UX

    Cons

    Company was purchased and employees were asked to sign loyalty oaths, non-compete agreements, and sued if they went to work for a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up and treat people like human beings rather than resources.

    Pros

    Willing to give a chance to inexperienced developers. A chance to build experience with technologies which are in demand. High morale in the sales and support departments. Office grounds are pleasant. An excellent source of contract work. Would recommend for contractors.

    Cons

    Pay is low and developers are not treated with respect. As a result, morale is very low, and they have a very high turn-over rate. They had difficulty attracting experienced talent, so there were a lot of inexperienced programmers with no mentoring. Upper management is unprofessional and vindictive. They also seem inexplicably dismissive of quality control. Expect to be micromanaged, but not well. Some of this may be due to the parent company, which could be placing unreasonable demands on local management.

    Advice to Management

    When no one speaks up in meetings, it means they don't trust you. Also, don't let the salaried employees know that they're getting paid less than half what the contractors are.

    Pros

    There is a nice view from the office.

    Cons

    The pay is so low that it is not worth your time. Developers are treated like they are unimportant, and not worth anything to the company. They can't keep employees and yet they keep placing more demands on the current workers. To make matters worse, they have a manager who has never written a line of code in her life. This place has so much potential but is mismanaged by the parent company Vista.

    Pros

    I've never worked for an organization that has cared more about both the advancement of the company as well as each individual employee. They really try to make your life as easy as they can (as long as you put effort into your job) with excellent benefits, opportunity for advancement and the willingness to be open with both other employees as well as management. The CEO genuinely cares about all employees and always has an open door.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of you during training and it can be a bit tedious but also really helps give you a strong foundation for what you will be doing in your position.

    Advice to Management

    The company events that are planned are great team-building exercises, even with people that aren't in your department. It might be beneficial to have one more of those each year and make it more available for remote employees to join as well.

    Pros

    Only good for entry level. Get a year or 2 of experience and leave.

    Cons

    Low pay. Average benefits. Half the people that work here have no work ethic, the other half pick up the slack. This does not seem to matter when it comes to promotions, those seem to have no basis for being handed out. The development department is going downhill fast, avoid at all costs. This site is also riddled with fake reviews. Don't believe them.

    Advice to Management

    Making a poor internal hire to replace the vp of engineering has resulted in many people leaving. Pay more and get someone more experienced and less concerned about covering their own rear.

    Pros

    It provided an opportunity to get some quick, entry-level experience.

    Cons

    When I worked there, there didn't seem to be a strategic vision or plan. The senior management was comprised of mostly family members, and there seemed to restructure departments randomly and frequently.

    Advice to Management

    I met some great people there, so HR and recruiting did a solid job of building out a staff.

    Pros

    Young staff is very alive and usually growing quickly, but the Vista model has low base salary that will not sit well with experienced sales people. Most leave the company after they realize they can get 40K more base with similar commission at a non-Vista company.

    Cons

    Low Base salary, and tedious activity based time tracking which tough to handle with a heavy work load.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to communicate better when making major changes to pricing structure. Client expect it and would protest less if they had time to prepare.
