    I worked at Monotype full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed my tenure at Monotype. I was there for a long time. I had the opportunity to hold multiple positions and report to a few different people. Monotype is a great place to work. The company has an outstanding work/life attitude. The people are great. Management is focused and forward thinking. I trusted management always had the best interest of the company in mind. There's definitely opportunity there. The culture is diverse. The corporation has high ethical standards. It was a fun company to work for!!

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say

    I have been working at Monotype full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice company, people and facility. Really good benefits, decent pay. Manager and team are great and the environment is flexible. Very pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Interview process with HR was not great. Recruiter seemed impatient. It took several mo. from initial interview to time I got hired with no real updates from recruiter/benefits person. Calls were not returned. Just not professional experience. Experience with person was better after I started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you understand how HR treats potential employees.

    I worked at Monotype full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, strong management that cares, and fonts are fun! Pay and benefits were great and the work environment is flexible and easy going.

    Cons

    For a smaller company, spread all over the globe and they haven't adequately invested in the right technologies to ensure the right connectors for global teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workforce and take the time to hear their thoughts and ideas.

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

    Pros

    Competitive Salary (for some time), few good technical people (many already left).

    Cons

    The top management is flawed in India and is very mediocre
    Abusive language is prominent in the office. Not at all a good place for female workers, feels very unsafe.
    Highly political environment and technical people are treated like slaves and trash
    Hiring practices are poor and salary is not a secret.
    Managers have full freedom to go and come at anytime. Director comes sparsely and has no inkling of whats going on in the office. Very poor technical competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some professionalism to the Indian management.

    I worked at Monotype full-time

    Pros

    Management is fair and ethical. Products (fonts and software) are developed in several US offices as well as UK, Germany, India, and China so you may find that there is an office near you. Good engineering and quality practices. Reasonable flexibility regarding work hours and where you work.

    Cons

    The culture is good but could be better. There isn't much outside interaction with colleagues.
