    I have been working at Mandli Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a full-time job with health insurance, paid vacation, 401k matching to reward longer-term employees, Benefits like that can be seriously hard to find for college graduates nowadays. Can take vacation before you've earned the hours (company allows you to go up to 40 into the negative on those). Also as a data processor you will never have to take your work home with you, literally or figuratively.

    Cons

    There is a culture of negativity among the other processors - not everyone, but enough to make it feel oppressive. The blame for this is most easily placed on management, but after a good bit of time here, I'm really not sure. People do a lot of judgment of their peers, and those that get promoted are often subject to gossip about their unworthiness based on that. Yes it would help if company paid more per hour, but the job market for recent grads sucks in Wisconsin and most other states, and they dont take the common route of limiting everyone to 32hrs so they don't have to pay health insurance. Management is opening to hearing you out if you feel you have something else to bring to the table at the company, that doesn't necessarily mean you'll get a promotion out of it, but some i never would have expected have been promoted. Fact is everyone is coming here with various levels of experience and skills and they don't all show just from doing the data processing. I think a lot of the negativity is because the company tends to promise everybody that with hard work theyll be promoted quickly, and that's objectively not the case. It takes more than that and i havent figured out the formula yet but i can say those that complain the most tend to be the ones that don't move up.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more team-building stuff so people can get to know each other outside of just the day-to-day work on a group project or talking at lunch or whatever. Also there is a weird tension between first and second shift people even though they have to work on the same projects, there should be a focus on getting both groups together for fun stuff now and again. It helps when we feel more plugged in and aware of what the company is doing beyond the data processing and collection we already know about. Sometimes we get to hear really cool stuff that sounds exciting but then we don't hear about it again for a while. Upper management & owner sometimes talk about these things but it feels like there's a separate operation we only hear about every few months and i know a lot of us are interested in what will change or what kind of jobs there will be down the line.

    I have been working at Mandli Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good for young people right of college. Free healthcare. 3% 401k match after 2 years.
    Bagel Tuesdays!

    Cons

    There are too many layers and managers. The name suggests 'communication' but unfortunately the company doesn't perform that way. With all the layers, information gets lost playing 'telephone' and the wage gets spread out over too many people.

    If you don't brown-nose, nobody will listen to your suggestions.

    HR is very biased. Mentioned complaints don't get recognized unless their team was already thinking about it themselves.

    The very high turnover speaks for itself. People hate working here and are miserable after staring at their screen for 40 hours a day.

    Low pay. Maternity leave is a bad agreement.

    Advice to Management

    Take your people seriously.
