    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    MindTouch has been a fantastic company to work for. They encourage growth and promote from within often. The global encouragement (in-company, cross-departmental) is a breath of fresh air. The culture is electrifying and enhances creativity to the max. Catered lunches are a big plus as it's nice to not have to worry about what you're eating 3 times a week.

    Cons

    The parking price stinks, you pretty much have to decide whether or not you want to fork over $150/mo to park in or near the office. If you decide not to you're doing a good 1+ mile walk from an area with free parking, or using public transit, you'd kind of expect that working in Downtown San Diego. The do not have a set guideline regarding matching any 401k contributions, they just reserve the right to match whatever...

    We're not completely through some of the ripples of past organizational changes yet, but I expect that to have settled down in a few months

    Pros

    Product is not "garbage", but any reviewer who would make that comment can stay in their limited role and complain. I ask that you please move aside for someone who actually does something. Indeed, senior engineering and devops individuals are among the finest in the industry. Too bad we're not 100% open sourced, there are some wonderful technical solutions in our codebase. If you are interested in working with Serverless...

    Cons

If you expect to settle comfortably into an organization transitioning from startup to growth and wait for opportunities or promotions, you'll be very disappointed. Individuals put into the management role has been hit and miss for a number of years,...

A mentorship program for those aspiring to be team leads or managers would be valuable. Marketing message needs to focus on what makes MindTouch different from knowledgebases. Address the size of the engineering team, it...
