    I worked at Mycroft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your duties at Mycroft change from project to project, but this is not to been seen as a Con but instead a Pro as you are able to develop your skills and grow as an individual and within the organization

    Cons

    Mycroft likes self starters, if you are the type of person that is going to wait for training then this is not the place for you.

    I worked at Mycroft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management has a clear direction of where they would like the company to go. Great communication within the company. The CEO had a monthly meeting with all employees to discuss any questions. Co workers in the St. Louis office were hard working and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Compensation was on the low side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great communication. Adjust starting salaries to reflect skill set and market value.

    Excellent sharp people. Challenging work. Providing training.

    Good flex time, health care plan is hard to figure out.

    It is difficult to make all the different teams feel valued. Think outside the box for ways to give employees a pat on the shoulder.

    Pros

    Co workers are there to give you a hand when needed.

    Cons

    Terrible place to work. Was fired with out warning. No support from upper management.. Most people that work there have a copy of their resume on their laptops just waiting to be sent out for a better opportunity.

    Marketing is a joke. They bounce around from project to project per CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management

    I worked at Mycroft

    Pros

    Helpful when I was sick and needed an off

    Cons

    Though hired as a Software engineer, was doing back office work like junior level of BA which is not worth at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure you hire the people according to their interest and background if needed not just to show that you got an engineer and make them work as a clerk or low level office work. that's not fair or if so then be frank and truthful

    I worked at Mycroft

    Pros

    A few smart coworkers. Some training for your job. Fairly flexible about work location.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Management has no ethics or vison. If there was a choice between being out of work or accepting a position here I would advise staying jobless.
