What is the retirement plan like at MindGym?

Pros

- Fantastic people. For the most part, everyone is incredibly caring, eager to help, and smart as can be. It's sincere, and that's rare to find. - US leadership is diverse, approachable, and speaks to inspiring changes for the company. - The quality of content/products is top notch. Everything is informed by research and there are incredible graphic designers. - PTO is competitive and 401K matching is nice, though not that impressive.

Cons

- Huge UK and US divide. UK hosts all innovation direction, brand development, digital transformation, etc. The US, on the other hand, is the revenue generator for the business, always out performing UK sales. This creates a painful gap where UK has opportunities for growth and US feels like an undervalued churn of work. - Pay and bonus. The US salaries are below market rate across the board. The bonus, part of boost to low pay, is extremely stratified with company goals. This cuts the bonus percentage a lot from the sticker price. - No annual raises. Budget conversations aren't even lined up with performance cycles. Raises come when you get a promotion. To get a promotion, you need to do 3 other people's role until you burnout. - No practicing what's preached. There are guides to reference for information, but not in a central location. No formal in role training. Sink or swim - low performance is not an option; lay offs happen. - Cross team collaboration is painful, though the business, to its credit, openly admits this and is working on it with operational excellence.

Advice to Management

Cut the lip service. Set clear direction, include everyone on the journey, and invest in them as this invests in the business' potential.

How are career development opportunities at MindGym?

Pros

- People! Some of the smartest and most well-rounded individuals I've worked with in my entire career. - Culture. The firm has built a decent culture with nice perks and social events. - Meaningful work and the impact it has on people in a positive manner. - Learning. I was here for ~1.5 years and was stretched in many ways and learned a lot. You can also take some of the Mind Gym courses to learn.

Cons

- Capacity and getting every ounce out of employees. There is a big push to give Project Managers volume and more projects without realizing how much effort each project takes and the impact it has. - Constant focus and push on revenue recognition. Management was strict about this and so much time spent on: how do we convince the customer to sign-off on this work product? Revenue is important but it felt sleezy the work it was discussed and pushed internally. - Lack of work-life and flexability; it's a strict 9 AM to 6 PM and WFH is frowned upon. Preference is everyone is in the office so can constantly be watched and be micromanaged to some extent. - Very high-pace, and at times, stressful work environment. The average employee tenure is around 1-1.50 years and I observed a lot of turnaround at the firm (and since I've left). - Internal inter-department tension: Delivery focus was revenue recognition while other groups wanted to work on deliverables at their own pace, so there is constant clash between Project Managers, designers and solution archtitects. - Comp is horrible. There is no annual bonus or annual raise (which I learned after the fact). The firm doesn't even take into account inflation and that's not acceptable.

Advice to Management

Stop thinking short-term and look at the bigger picture. Build a culture and envirnonment that will last, rather than frustate, burn-out or scare people away from the firm. Build a stronger colloborative culture and remove the unnecessary internal walls and tension.

Constant focus and push on revenue recognition.
