    Great, stable company!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    Monotype is a well run company with good opportunities for making a real contribution.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Woburn, MA

    ProsManagement 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interview experience could have been better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsInterview 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 Senior ManagementMake sure you understand how HR treats potential employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
